Noontime Sports New England D3 Women’s Basketball Top 10 (Feb. 11th)

NS HOOP WBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Bowdoin College continues to be the top team in New England following another BUSY week (and weekend) of D3 basketball. Amherst College and Tufts University remain our second and third teams, respectively, while Saint Joseph’s (Maine) and Babson College continue to occupy the fourth and fifth positions, too.

Smith College and Trinity College each moved-up, while UMass Dartmouth slipped two spots after falling in double-overtime Plymouth State. The Corsairs will look to bounce back on Wednesday when they visit UMass Boston (on the rise) for an important conference test. UMass Dartmouth will wrap-up its regular season slate on Saturday, February 16th when they host Castleton University.

In addition to UMass Boston, fans of New England D3 hoops should also keep an eye on Endicott College (secured a home playoff with their 47-44 win last Saturday over Roger Williams) and Emerson College. Additionally, one should certainly not overlook Suffolk University or Worcester State, as well.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games to Watch (Feb. 1st-3rd)

NS 10 GAMES TO WATCH HOOPS

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Happy Friday, New England D3 Hoops fans!

Also, happy February, too – we made it through January (rejoice!).

Let’s kickstart another busy weekend of hoops with our weekly 10 Games to Watch post, including our predictions, too.

Last week, we finished 9-1 – we probably should have picked Wheaton College over Clark University, but at least we provided the Lyons with some motivation (insert emoji here!). 

Heading into this weekend, we own a marvelous record of 48-22!



Tufts University at Amherst College (MBB) | Friday, February 1st at 7 p.m.: This is a must-win for the Jumbos, who remain locked in the sixth seed for the upcoming conference tournament. Tufts gained a major boost last Saturday with a win over Wesleyan University but needs to maintain its momentum against the Mammoths. PREDICTION: Amherst College 

Amherst College at Tufts University (WBB) | Friday, February 1st at 7 p.m.: Since falling to Bowdoin, the Jumbos have won seven-straight to gain some serious momentum heading into a very important game for both teams. Both Amherst and Tufts lost to Bowdoin so a win would most likely provide either the Mammoths or Jumbos with the second seed in the conference tournament. PREDICTION: Tufts University 

UMass Dartmouth at Eastern Connecticut (WBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.: The Corsairs have quietly enjoyed another successful season, which included a win over the Warriors a few weeks ago. If UMD wants to secure the top spot in the upcoming conference tournament then they must win this game. PREDICTION: UMass Dartmouth 

Saint Joseph’s (ME) at Emmanuel College (MBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.: The Saints seem destined to secure the top spot in their upcoming conference tournament, but this is a must win against a team that beat the Blue and Gold at the end of December. PREDICTION: Emmanuel College

Wentworth Inst. of Tech. at Endicott College (WBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.: The Gulls continue to be the team to beat in their conference – they have won 10 of 11 league tilts, including their last four. They outlasted the Leopards, 68-63, last month and should find a way to win on Saturday. PREDICTION: Endicott College 

Smith College at Wheaton College (WBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.: After scoring an exciting win over Springfield, the Pioneers will look to continue their momentum once again on the road. Smith hasn’t lost since falling to Middlebury in the middle of January. PREDICTION: Smith College 

Bridgewater State at Westfield State (WBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 2 p.m.: Days after falling to Worcester State, the Owls rebounded with an 87-62 win over MCLA. Westfield beat Bridgewater earlier this year and needs a win to keep pace with the Lancers for the top spot in the upcoming conference tournament.

Middlebury College at Colby College (MBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 3 p.m.: The Mules highlighted the final weekend of January with two big wins over Amherst College and Hamilton College. They face Williams on Friday, which won’t be an easy task, but this is a game they could perhaps steal away from the Panthers. PREDICTION: Colby College 

Worcester State at MCLA (MBB) | Saturday, February 2nd at 3 p.m.: The Lancers remain in the hunt for a top seed in their upcoming conference tournament, so a win over the Trailblazers to keep that dream alive is a must. PREDICTION: Worcester State 

Rochester at Brandeis University (MBB) | Sunday, February 3rd at 12 p.m.: The last time we picked against the Judges, they scored an exciting win over Chicago. This week – well, Sunday, to be exact – we will take the Blue and White in a close one against the Yellowjackets. PREDICTION: Brandeis University

NS HOOP WBB TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

Bowdoin College continues to be our top team in New England following an impressive come-from-behind win this past Saturday over Amherst College. The Mammoths, who entered the previous week as our second best team in the region, remained in the same spot, while Tufts UniversitySaint Joseph’s (Maine) and Babson College rounded out the top five spots.

Below the top five, we did see some movement, including UMass Dartmouth and Middlebury College switching spots – the same could be said for Trinity College and MIT.

Springfield College secured the tenth and final spot for the second-straight week, but its time to keep an eye on all four of our teams ‘on the rise,’ including Smith College and Emmanuel College.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games To Watch (Jan. 18th-20th)

10 Games Jan 2019

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops

Welcome to Friday, everyone!

A new weekend means a brand new edition of 10 Games to Watch, so let’s dish out some New England D3 basketball games to follow, watch or attend over the next few days.

Last week, we finished 7-3, which is not, but we know we can do better – we hold ourselves to high standards! Our overall record now for picks this winter is 35-15.


MCLA at Trinity College (WBB) | (Friday, Jan. 18th at 5 p.m.): The Bantams have rebounded from a difficult setback one week ago against Bowdoin with back-to-back wins over Colby and Western New England. Look for their recent momentum to continue on Friday. PREDICTION: Trinity College 

SUNY Canton at Husson (WBB) | (Friday, Jan. 18th at 7:30 p.m.): The Eagles should be fired-up for this one as a victory against the Kangaroos would provide coach Kissy Walker with her 500th win on the sidelines. PREDICTION: Husson University

Chicago at Brandeis University (MBB) | (Friday, Jan, 18th at 8 p.m.): The Maroons are one of the best teams in the Judges’ conference, so this will be a real test for Brandeis, which looks to win its 10th game of the season. PREDICTION: Chicago 

Babson College at Springfield College (WBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 10 a.m.): This could be a potential conference championship preview, so make sure to wake up early, grab your coffee and watch two talented teams compete for 40 minutes. PREDICTION: Springfield College 

Middlebury College at Williams College (MBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 1 p.m.): Sometimes you need just a little home cooking. Look for the Ephs to bounce back from their initial loss earlier this week on the road in Amherst with a win over the Panthers in Williamstown on Saturday. PREDICTION: Williams 

Babson College at MIT (MBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 2 p.m.): This is almost a must-win for the Engineers, who will attempt to derail the Beavers’ current momentum, which dates back to last month with a 74-65 win over Catholic. Look for a big game from Babson’s Brandon Jackson, who recorded a double-double earlier this week in his team’s sixth-straight win over Wheaton. PREDICTION: Babson College 

Saint Joseph’s (ME) at Johnson & Wales (MBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 2 p.m.): Both teams need a win to keep pace with Emmanuel and Suffolk. PREDICTION: Johnson & Wales 

Tufts University at Bates College (MBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 3 p.m.): After falling to Williams last Friday, the Jumbos bounced back with an impressive win over Middlebury. Will their momentum continue one week later up at Bates? We’ll find out! PREDICTION: Tufts University 

Bridgewater State at Framingham State (WBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 3 p.m.): After suffering a heartbreaker the other night to Westfield State, coach Walter Paschal‘s Rams should find a way to bounce back against the Bears of Bridgewater State. PREDICTION: Framingham State 

WPI at Clark University (MBB) | (Saturday, Jan. 19th at 3 p.m.): This is a rivalry game, which should favor the Engineers once the final horn sounds. WPI has won three-straight since starting conference play with back-to-back losses to Babson and MIT. PREDICTION: WPI
