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.

We had some movement this week following an exciting few days of New England D3 Hoops.

Once again, MIT remained the top team, while Hamilton College and Nichols College each moved-up, checking in second and third, respectively. The Continentals bounced back from a recent loss to Colby College with back-to-back wins over Bates College and Tufts University. The Blue and Gold will face some tough challenges this week when they travel to Middlebury College on Friday and Williams College on Saturday.

Two Little East Conference (LEC) teams secured spots on this week’s poll, checking-in ninth and tenth, respectively. Keene State secured the ninth position with a current seven-game winning streak, which will be tested this week against both Western Connecticut and Rhode Island College. Eastern Connecticut, which secured the tenth position, will face the Owls next weekend in what could determine the top spot in the conference tournament. The Warriors beat the Owls last month, 79-66.
