Not a lot has changed in a week as the top six teams remain the same, but we did see UMass Dartmouth move-up two spots, thanks to recent wins over Eastern Connecticut (64-60) and Castleton University (66-45). The Corsairs, who have won four-straight, will attempt to continue their current momentum later this week when they visit Southern Maine in an important conference clash before hosting Keene State on Saturday.
Trinity College also moved-up, checking-in ninth overall following a few recent wins over MCLA and St. Joseph’s (Long Island). The Bantams host Williams College on Friday followed by sixth-ranked Middlebury College next Sunday.
Finally, make sure to keep an eye on fifth-ranked Babson College this week, which hosts MIT in an important mid-week clash. The Beavers appear to be the team to beat in their conference, but don’t sleep on the Engineers, Springfield College and Smith College.
