Middlebury College moved into the top spot in our weekly Noontime Sports New England D-III Men’s Basketball Top 10 this week after picking up their sixth and seventh wins against Northern Vermont-Johnson and Endicott College, respectively.

Against the Gulls on Sunday, the Panthers erased a six-point deficit at the break and outscored the hosts, 54-28 in the second half to secure a 98-78 win.

Hamilton College and Nichols College each moved-up – the Bison improved to 5-0 yesterday with a win over Trinity College. Nichols, which checked-in fourth one week ago, hosts Wentworth Institute of Technology on Wednesday, December 4th. It should be an interesting conference clash.

Tufts University moved-up two spots following a recent (and hard-fought) win over MIT while Colby College jumped three spots after concluding Thanksgiving weekend with a pair of road wins.

Finally, we welcomed Brandeis University to this week’s poll – the Judges have won four of six contests thus far and will face Lasell University on Tuesday before competing against Tufts in the New England Big Four Challenge.

Amherst College remained our top team in our latest Noontime Sports Top 10 Men’s Basketball Poll, while Hamilton College and Middlebury College each moved-up.

Nichols College remains a team to watch – the Bison, who checked-in second last week, moved down two spots, but remain a squad to keep an eye on heading into next month’s contest against Trinity College.

Colby College and WPI joined our poll this week, checking-in eighth and ninth, respectively. Colby has scored some impressive wins thus far and will certainly be a squad to watch this weekend when the Mules tip-off against New Jersey City and Kean.
