División III de la NCAA

Division III de la NCAA, también conocida como D-III es la categoría más grande de la NCAA, la liga universitaria de los Estados Unidos de América. En ella compiten más de 450 universidades. Se diferencia de las Divisiones I y II en que en la D-III compiten las universidades que deciden no ofrecer becas para captar deportistas como alumnos.
