NORTON, MA- Wheaton College women's basketball senior Andrea Bailey (Needham, MA/Needham) is slated to be interviewed live during Sunday night's broadcast of Hoopsville, D3hoops.com's bi-weekly radio show. Bailey is set to appear some time between 7:45 and 8:15 p.m. The broadcast, which runs from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., can be found here. Wheaton last had an athlete featured on the program in early 2008, when men's basketball player Brent DiGiovanna '08 provided his Super Bowl prediction.
Among other things, Bailey will discuss knocking down a 40-foot buzzer beater in her 100th career game on January 9 to give Wheaton a shocking 64-63 overtime victory against New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) rival Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).
The point guard, who averages 8.2 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals, has been instrumental in Wheaton's turnaround from a 1-4 start, as the Lyons are now 10-5 overall, riding an eight-game winning streak, their longest in 14 years. At 7-1 in the NEWMAC, the Blue and White is in second place. With 428 career assists, Bailey also needs only two to tie Sharon Morrisseau's '89 21-year-old program record.
Now in its seventh season on the air, Hoopsville is the only radio show dedicated to NCAA Division III basketball. Host and founder Dave McHugh is joined by regional reporters along with coaches and players from around the county to talk about what is going on in Division III men's and women's basketball. The live two-hour show begins each Thursday and Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
