Noontime Sports New England D3 Women’s Basketball Top 10 (Nov. 26th)

NS HOOP WBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Another week of New England D3 men’s basketball is in the books, which means it is time to unveil our latest Noontime Sports Top 10, which finds Bowdoin College in the top spot followed by Tufts University and Amherst College.

The Polar Bears secured the top spot for the first time this season with recent wins over MIT (78-57) and University of New England (106-55). Bowdoin will be idle for a few days, but does return to the hardwood on Saturday when they visit Colby College for a 2 p.m. tip-off.

Tufts has enjoyed a successful start to its 2018-19 campaign, thanks to some impressive play from its underclassmen, including Janette Wadolowski, who netted a season-best 22 points on Sunday in her team’s 110-63 victory over Brandeis University. Additionally, the Jumbos have gotten a boost from first-year Molly Ryan, who is averaging 9.5 points per contest.

Amherst slipped from the top spot to the third position following a 70-67 setback to Eastern Connecticut last week. The loss snapped a 68-game winning streak, but look for Amherst to construct a new one beginning this week.

Connecticut College made the leap from the seventh position to the fifth, thanks to recent regional wins over Johnson & Wales (78-43) and Coast Guard Academy (77-62). The Camels will attempt to close out the first month of play with wins over Mitchell College and Worcester State – both games will take place away from New London.

Finally, UMass Boston remained in the tenth position for the second-straight week following a pair of wins against Keuka College (78-69) and Emerson College (66-61). Sophomores Jalani Jackson and Joie Grassi have provided a boost for the Blue and White, averaging 16.3 and 15.3 points per contest, respectively.
