Men’s basketball coach Dave Paulsen ’87 has been named the top coach in Division III for the second straight year.

Paulsen, in his fourth year at Williams, led the Ephs to a 30-2 record and a second-place finish in the NCAA Division 3 tournament. It was Williams’ 12th consecutive 20-win season.

It isn’t clear how much of a role Pausen’s natty attire — on display at the Division III championship game and, presumbaly, throughout the year — played in his selection. He certainly dresses much better now than he did 20 years ago. [Marriage will do that to you. — ed Not all of us.]

Note that Dave is not the only Paulsen family member in the news.

Third grader Claire Paulsen, whose father is a coach at Williams College, is knitting fluffy purple yarn, the college color.

“I love it,” she said. “I like doing finger-and-eye coordination. And I like the way the yarn feels.”

Congratulations to all the Paulsens!
