Can anyone stop the Williams College men’s basketball team heading into a new week? We’ll find out, but once again the Ephs secured the top spot in our seventh poll of the season followed by Gordon College and Hamilton College.
Wesleyan University returned the poll, checking in sixth overall, thanks to a pair of impressive wins last week over Amherst College (No. 9) and Hamilton. The Cardinals have won three-straight and will look to continue their momentum on Thursday, January 17 when they visit Pine Manor College at 7 p.m.
Finally, Endicott College secured the tenth position, while a trio of new teams appeared on our ‘teams on the rise,’ including St. Joseph’s (Maine) and UMass Dartmouth.
