Another week of New England D3 men’s basketball is in the books, which means it is time to unveil our latest Noontime Sports Top 10, which finds Bowdoin College in the top spot followed by Tufts University and Amherst College for the second consecutive week.

Additionally, our fourth (St. Joseph’s (Maine)) and fifth teams (Conn. College) remained in the same position for a second-straight week, while Middlebury College and UMass Dartmouth each moved-up.

Eastern Connecticut State and Trinity College became the newest members of this week’s polls – both squads have earned impressive wins to start their respective campaigns. The Bantams scored an impressive win over Stevens on Saturday and should continue their early season momentum this week against Coast Guard Academy and Johnson & Wales.

Trinity and Conn. College are set to meet on Saturday, December 8th in an enticing early season match-up. You can bet we will be keeping our eyes on this contest.

Finally, don’t sleep on Smith College, which scored its fifth win of the season on Saturday against Babson College, thanks to some impressive shooting, both inside and outside the half circle.
