NS 10 GAMES TO WATCH HOOPS

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome to our FINAL 10 Games to Watch for the 2018-19 season – crazy how fast the time goes! Let’s go out in style with some great picks before we dive into conference tournament coverage.

Last week, we picked seven of ten games correctly to bump our overall record to 59-31. 


Lesley University at New England College (MBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 1 p.m.: The Pilgrims established a new program-record for consecutive wins (10) one week ago with a 112-97 victory over Becker College. Look for their winning streak to continue on Saturday before they head into the NECC Tournament as the team to beat. PREDICTION: New England College 

Wheaton College at Clark University (MBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 1 p.m.: Look for the Cougars to deliver coach Paul Phillips his final win before he heads into retirement. PREDICTION: Clark University 

Maine Maritime at Thomas College (MBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 1 p.m.: The Terriers beat Maine Maritime at home one week ago before capping their 2018-19 slate with a 90-76 win over UMaine-Farmington. Look for Thomas to find a way past the Mariners and advance to the NAC semifinals next Friday. PREDICTION: Thomas College 

MIT at Coast Guard Academy (WBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 1 p.m.: This a must-win for the Bears, who hope to clinch a spot in next week’s NEWMAC Tournament. MIT rebounded from a tough loss to Smith with a big win on Wednesday over Wheaton. A win for the Engineers would provide them with some additional momentum heading into the postseason. PREDICTION: MIT 

UMass Boston at Rhode Island College (WBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 1 p.m.: The Beacons suffered a heartbreaker the other evening with a one-point loss to UMass Dartmouth (60-59). Look for the Blue and White to bounce back on Saturday with an end of season victory before heading into the LEC Tournament. PREDICTION: UMass Boston 

Wheaton College at Smith College (WBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 2 p.m.: A win for the Pioneers would provide coach Lynn Hersey with her 200th win at Smith. Additionally, a victory would keep the Pioneers’ momentum going into the NEWMAC Tournament. PREDICTION: Smith College 

UMaine-Farmington at Northern Vermont University-Lyndon (WBB) | February 16th at 2 p.m.: This is an enticing opening round NAC Tournament tilt between two teams that both beat each other earlier this winter. NVY-Lyndon may have some momentum heading into this win or go home clash, thanks to a pair of recent victories over SUNY Canton and Northern Vermont-Johnson. PREDICTION: Northern Vermont Univ.-Lyndon 

Babson at WPI (WBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 3 p.m.: The Beavers clinched a share of the NEWMAC crown earlier this week with a 62-40 win over Wellesley College. WPI needs to win to keep their postseason hopes alive, so this is a playoff game for the Engineers. PREDICTION: Babson College 

Eastern Connecticut at Keene State (MBB) | Saturday, February 16th at 3 p.m.: The Owls soar into their final contest of the season as one of the hottest teams in New England. Keene State has won nine-straight and needs this win to keep their momentum going into the LEC Tournament next week. PREDICTION: Keene State
