Massachusetts College Basketball: Men’s Top-5 Poll Updated
1.) MIT (Last Week/No. 1) – Despite dropping their first contest of the season to rival WPI, the Engineers still remain the top-squad in our men’s Top-5 poll. However, they’ll certainly need to rebound this week, especially against Clark University and the U.S. Coast Guard at home.
2.) Amherst College (Last Week/No. 2) – The Lord Jeffs appear to be peaking at the right time, as they’ve won two consecutive road games. They’ll continue their four-game swing on Wednesday when they travel to the Berkshires to face Williams College.
3.) WPI (Last Week/No. 4) – The Engineers earned an enormous road victory this past weekend, as they defeated MIT in Cambridge, 80-68. WPI will look to build off their convince win at Springfield College on Wednesday.
4.) Williams College (Last Week/No. 3) – Earlier this month, the Ephs struggled, and lost two games to Tufts University and Wesleyan University. However, the men who sport the words, “Williams” across their chest have rebounded quite well, as they’ve won three of their last four contests, which included an 82-61 victory this past Sunday against Hamilton College.
5.) Tufts University (Last Week/No. 5) – Bob Sheldon’s squad is currently residing in second place, and will want to earn a “W” on Saturday when they host Bowdoin College, who is also 4-2 in conference play. The Jumbos have won two of their last three contests, along with three consecutive home games, too.
