Noontime Sports New England D3 Men’s Basketball Top 10 (Jan. 21st)


By | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

We enter a new week with a bit of a change to our weekly New England D3 men’s basketball poll, which finds MIT in the top spot followed by Hamilton College (second) and Williams College (third). The Engineers secured the top spot after scoring some important conference wins over Babson College (seventh) and Springfield College.

Wesleyan University moved-up two spots to secure the fourth position, while Nichols College rounded out the top five. The Bison have rebounded for an early January setback to Gordon College (ninth) by winning five-straight.

This week, the Bison head to Endicott College for an important league tilt – they also take on Salve Regina this week, as well.

Amherst College and Middlebury College both scored wins over third-ranked Williams this week – maybe it is time to not sleep on the Mammoths and Panthers?
