Noontime Sports New England D3 Men’s Basketball Top 10 (Nov. 19th)

NS HOOPS MBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

A few New England D3 men’s basketball games have been recorded, which means it is time to unveil our second poll of the season, which finds Endicott College in the top spot followed by Williams College and Hamilton College.

The Gulls appear to be the team to beat (and watch) thus far following impressive wins over Babson College and MIT. Endicott erased an 18-point deficit on Sunday to beat the Beavers on the road, and seem to have some serious momentum heading into the week.

Keep an eye on MIT and Tufts University, which are scheduled to meet Tuesday in Cambridge. The Engineers rebounded from a difficult season-opening loss to the Gulls with a win over Eastern Nazarene, while the Jumbos enters the early week clash winners of two-straight.

Lastly, it appears if WPI has gained some early season momentum with wins over Albertus MagnusSUNY Potsdam and William Patterson.

NS FINAL 2018 FB Poll 111918

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_FB 

Another season of New England D3 football has concluded with Framingham State securing the top spot in our final Noontime Sports Top 10 Poll.

The Rams, who captured the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) crown, returned to the postseason for the first time in three years where they provided a slew of challenges to Brockport State. Despite the outcome, the Rams certainly proved they have what it takes to compete with one of the best teams in New York D3 Football and should be back in the same position next fall.

Trinity College and MIT rounded out the top three spots, while Western New England and Amherst College secured the fourth and fifth positions, respectively. MIT made its second appearance in the NCAA Tournament in four seasons after capturing its initial New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) crown.

The Bantams of Trinity captured their third-straight New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown with back-to-back wins over Amherst and Wesleyan University.
