Independently covering the OVC since 2011. To learn about us, click the button below.

Things look a little different around here, and with good reason. Just in time for our second full season covering Ohio Valley conference basketball (our 3rd if you include my launch year) we’ve made a host of changes.

  • Faster Site: The biggest change isn’t one you can see, but you’ll notice. Or actually, hopefully you won’t notice the lag that used to exist when opening up pages on the site.
  • Tablet / Smartphone friendly: Our last site looked great on a desktop, but was a disaster on a smartphone or tablet. That’s no more, with easy to select links on any device.
  • The “Grid”: Instead of a slideshow you have to scroll through to see all our top stories, you can see them all at once. And the grid works no matter the size the screen. (Don’t believe me? Just make your window smaller and see what happens.)
  • Sort Homepage by School: Have you tried the new dropdown menu on the homescreen? Just hover you mouse over the “More Headlines” button, and pick your school. Then you can check the headlines that you want to see, just for your school.
  • New Writer: Have you met Tom Via yet? You should, and follow him on twitter @tomviathoughts.
  • Football Coverage is Back: …and for good. Tom will be providing much of the football coverage for the future.
  • “Web Watch” is Returning Also: Links! And more links!

Of course, more important than the look is the content, and we’re still dedicated to bringing you the best coverage not just of the OVC, but coverage on par with any other sports site.

Let us know what you think of the new design, and what you would like to see in the future on OVC Ball.
