Noontime Sports New England D3 Men’s Basketball Top 10 (Nov. 26th)


By | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Another week of New England D3 men’s basketball is in the books, which means its time to unveil our latest Noontime Sports Top 10, which finds Williams College in the top spot followed by Middlebury College and Hamilton College.

The Ephs, who were second in last week’s poll, capped their Thanksgiving Weekend with back-to-back wins over Manhattanville (85-73) and Yeshiva (85-64). Williams travels to Fitchburg State on Thursday before visiting Wesleyan University on Saturday.

Nichols College moved up two spots following impressive wins over Wesleyan and Trinity College. Marcos Echevarria led Nichols with a team-high 29 points in his team’s fourth win over Trinity, while Matt Morrow produced a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds. Both student-athletes will be players to watch this week as Nichols faces Salve Regina on Wednesday and fourth-ranked Endicott College on Saturday.

Finally, Eastern Connecticut joined this week’s poll, thanks to a current three-game winning streak, which includes wins over SUNY PotsdamConnecticut College and Wesleyan. The Warriors face Rhode Island College and UMass Boston this week.
