A brand new season of New England D-III basketball is set to tip-off this week (and weekend, as well as next week, too), which means it is time to unveil our first Noontime Sports Women’s Basketball Top 20 Poll.
Our weekly poll will be posted every Tuesday this month but will transition to Mondays in December once our New England D-III Football coverage concludes.
Fans of our New England D-III (and other regional basketball coverage) can follow @Noontime_Hoops on Twitter.
