Tuesday’s in November usually means one thing: a brand new Noontime Sports Top 10 Women’s Basketball Poll.

As noted in our preseason poll, we will be posting a weekly Top 10 Poll this month on Tuesdays before switching to Mondays once the New England D-III Football season concludes.

This is a BUSY week for many teams as most squads begin their respective campaigns, while others take part in early season tournaments.

UMass Dartmouth joins this week’s poll following an overtime win over MIT, which is one of eight teams ‘on the rise.’
