Noontime Sports New England D3 Men’s Basketball Top 10 (Feb. 18th)

NS HOOPS MBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops

We head into the BIG conference tournament week with some movement, beginning with Hamilton College and Amherst College switching places in the top three spots, and Keene State jumping up two spots following their tenth win this past weekend over Eastern Connecticut.

Nichols College dropped one spot and must be careful heading into their conference tournament as the top seed. Wentworth Institute of Technology proved the Bison are beatable, but ‘Boys of Dudley’ should find a way to Saturday’s championship, thanks to its current 12-game winning streak.

Albertus Magnus has some serious momentum heading into their conference tournament, thanks to six consecutive victories, including an impressive 93-87 win this past weekend over Suffolk University, which is one of six teams on the rise this week. All six teams, including the Rams, have the potential to win their respective conference tournament.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games To Watch (Feb. 16th)

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

D3 Hoops: Kelly, Bowdoin Top Amherst In Battle of Undefeated NESCAC Teams

0prhvWuF_400x400By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Abby Kelly poured in a game-high 19 points on 5 of 10 shooting, while Maddie Hasson added 14 points, seven rebounds, one steal and one block as the Bowdoin College women’s basketball team defeated Amherst College, 65-56, in a battle of undefeated New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) teams.

With the win, the Polar Bears improve to 19-0, including 6-0 in league play, while the Mammoths dip to 17-2 and 4-1.

The win provides Bowdoin with an inside track to the top seed in the upcoming NESCAC Tournament with five games remaining on their regular season slate. Bowdoin has defeated some of the league’s top teams this month, including Trinity College and Tufts University.

Saturday’s win erased the memories for Bowdoin of last year’s NCAA Division III championship, which Amherst won by a score of 65-45. The win over the Polar Bears provided the Mammoths with their second-straight national championship.

Amherst led Bowdoin, 34-18, at the break before the Polar Bears clawed back by outscoring the Mammoths, 47-22, over the final two frames. Kelly netted 13 of 19 points in the second half, while Hanson tallied 14 points and seven caroms during the final 20 minutes.

Bowdoin’s Samantha Roy contributed 13 points, six rebounds (four offensive), five assists and two steals, while Amherst’s Madeline Eck led all scorers with 21 points on 7 of 12 shooting, along with five rebounds and three assists.

The Polar Bears will attempt to earn their 20th win of the season on Tuesday when they host New England College. Amherst returns to action next Friday when they visit Tufts for an important contest that will most likely decide the second seed in the upcoming NESCAC Tournament.
