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 Williams College in the top spot followed the second-straight week followed by Nichols College and Hamilton College.
Movers: WPI was our biggest mover as the Engineers moved into the top five after picking-up their eighth-straight win. WPI has now won four road games after starting its 2018-19 campaign with four-straight home wins. The Engineers host Husson University on Sunday before enjoying a short break prior to their trip to Tampa, Florida.
Newcomers: We welcomed a pair of teams to this week’s poll, including Babson College, which has won four games this season against New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) teams. They recently defeated Amherst College, which is currently on the rise.
Additionally, Gordon College joined the poll after recently beating Colby College, which is one of a few teams to watch over the next few weeks and months. The Fighting Scots have also scored some impressive regional wins against Johnson & Wales and Salem State. They Blue and White are in action this week when they visit Eastern Nazarene on Wednesday and Framingham State on Friday.
