By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops
Happy New Year, New England D3 Hoops fans!
Let’s kick-off the new year with our fifth poll of the 2018-19 season, which once again finds Bowdoin College in the top spot followed by Tufts University (second) and Amherst College (third).
Movers: Middlebury College moved-up two spots to the sixth position after previously checking-in seventh overall. The Panthers have two tough tests this week against Conn. College (on the rise) and Wesleyan University.
Newcomers: Babson College and Smith College checked-in fifth and tenth, respectively. The Beavers enter 2019 on a seven-game winning streak, which will be tested on Saturday when they visit Clark University. The Pioneers have won two-straight and will look to continue their late December momentum on Saturday, as well, when they host MIT, which is one of our ‘teams on the rise this week.’
