Noontime 2012 Countdown: Revisiting Amherst-Williams Basketball Games
By Matt Noonan
One of my fondest memories from this past year was covering the Amherst-Williams men’s and women’s basketball games in Williamstown.
This is a rivalry that certainly lives up to the hype. Its Harvard-Yale, Ohio State-Michigan, and Notre Dame-USC all in one. And on a bone-chilly January evening, I was treated to some great basketball, as well as an exciting ending in the men’s game.
Below I have provided links to my game stories, as well as video interviews and packages from that evening.
