Noontime Sports New England D3 Women’s Basketball Top 10 (Feb. 11th)

NS HOOP WBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Bowdoin College continues to be the top team in New England following another BUSY week (and weekend) of D3 basketball. Amherst College and Tufts University remain our second and third teams, respectively, while Saint Joseph’s (Maine) and Babson College continue to occupy the fourth and fifth positions, too.

Smith College and Trinity College each moved-up, while UMass Dartmouth slipped two spots after falling in double-overtime Plymouth State. The Corsairs will look to bounce back on Wednesday when they visit UMass Boston (on the rise) for an important conference test. UMass Dartmouth will wrap-up its regular season slate on Saturday, February 16th when they host Castleton University.

In addition to UMass Boston, fans of New England D3 hoops should also keep an eye on Endicott College (secured a home playoff with their 47-44 win last Saturday over Roger Williams) and Emerson College. Additionally, one should certainly not overlook Suffolk University or Worcester State, as well.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games To Watch (Feb. 8th-10th)

NS 10 GAMES TO WATCH HOOPS

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Happy Friday, everyone! And welcome to a brand new weekend – let’s go!

In honor of the second Friday of the month – well, every Friday throughout the school year – it is time for our weekly edition of 10 Games to Watch in New England D3 Hoops.

Last week, we struggled. We finished 4-6 to bump our overall record to 52-28.

As always, stay connected with our Noontime Sports basketball coverage by following @Noontime_Hoops on Twitter! 


Williams College at Amherst College (WBB) | Friday, February 8th at 7 p.m.: No matter the records, this is one of the best rivalries in the state of Massachusetts. Amherst has a great deal of momentum since falling to Bowdoin College two weeks ago. PREDICTION: Amherst College 

Middlebury College at Hamilton College (WBB) | Friday, February 8th at 7 p.m.: It has been a difficult stretch for the Panthers, who look to return to the win column for the first time since late January. PREDICTION: Middlebury College 

Springfield College at Babson College (WBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 1 p.m.: The Beavers will attempt to earn a season-sweep after going 1-2 in their last three outings. Springfield is also 1-2 in its last three meetings, so this a big one to help determine seeds for the upcoming conference tournament. PREDICTION: Babson College 

Westfield State at Salem State (MBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 1 p.m.: The Vikings may have secured the top spot in the upcoming conference tournament, but this is certainly not a game they can overlook, especially since they needed overtime to beat the Owls last month. PREDICTION: Salem State 

WPI at Emerson College (MBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 1 p.m.: After falling to Coast Guard last week, the Engineers rebounded with an important win earlier this week over Babson College. That win should be enough momentum to carry the Engineers past the Lions, who lost to the Red and White by two points last month. PREDICTION: WPI 

Smith College at MIT (WBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 2 p.m.: This is a BIG one for both teams with the conference tournament on the horizon. Smith hasn’t lost since falling to Middlebury, while MIT has won three of its last five. If the Pioneers connect from beyond the arc, it could be a LONG day for the Engineers. PREDICTION: Smith College 

Emmanuel College at Colby-Sawyer (MBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 3 p.m.: Last week, we picked the Saints to beat the Monks. This week, we expect them to win their Saturday tilt with Colby-Sawyer, but they better be ready to drain a lot of three’s. PREDICTION: Emmanuel College 

Amherst College at Middlebury College (MBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 3 p.m.: The Panthers have some serious momentum heading into a pair of important conference tilts this weekend, including a mid-to-late afternoon clash with the Mammoths. Pending how things go Friday against Hamilton College, look for a solid effort, along with a late bucket to send the Panthers past the Mammoths. PREDICTION: Middlebury College 

Salve Regina at Gordon College (MBB) | Saturday, February 9th at 3 p.m.: The Fighting Scots host the Seahawks on Saturday – the Blue and White only beat Salve Regina by nine points last time, so don’t expect one of the region’s best teams to roll past the Green and Blue. PREDICTION: Gordon College 

Trinity College at Tufts University (WBB) | Sunday, February 10th at 2 p.m.: After falling to Amherst last Friday, the Jumbos rebounded with two important wins over Babson College and Hamilton College. Look the Powder Blue and White to cap its regular season slate with a win over the Bantams. PREDICTION: Tufts University
