We head into the BIG conference tournament week with some movement, beginning with Hamilton College and Amherst College switching places in the top three spots, and Keene State jumping up two spots following their tenth win this past weekend over Eastern Connecticut.
Nichols College dropped one spot and must be careful heading into their conference tournament as the top seed. Wentworth Institute of Technology proved the Bison are beatable, but ‘Boys of Dudley’ should find a way to Saturday’s championship, thanks to its current 12-game winning streak.
Albertus Magnus has some serious momentum heading into their conference tournament, thanks to six consecutive victories, including an impressive 93-87 win this past weekend over Suffolk University, which is one of six teams on the rise this week. All six teams, including the Rams, have the potential to win their respective conference tournament.
