Since falling to Vassar College, the Pride have won three-straight. They will attempt to continue their current momentum this week against both WPI and Babson College (No. 5).

The Beavers also own a winning streak as the Green and White have won 11-straight, including four games this month. Babson is off until Saturday when they visit the Pride in what could be an early preview of a conference semifinal or final.

Another weekend has officially arrived, which means it is time for a brand new edition of Noontime Sports‘ 10 Games to Watch in New England D3 Hoops.

Last week, we went 7-3 to bump our overall record to 28-12 overall (the week before we went 9-1, so let’s see if we can match it!).

As always, make sure to stay connected with @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops on Twitter for news, scores and more!

 


Trinity College at Bowdoin College (WBB) | Friday, Jan. 11th at 7 p.m.: This is a good test for the Bantams, who enter tonight’s clash at 11-2 overall. Trinity struggled it seemed against Amherst College last week, so it will be interesting to see how they do against the Polar Bears on the road. PREDICTION: Bowdoin 

Bates College at Middlebury College (WBB) | Friday, Jan. 11th at 7 p.m.: The Panthers look to bounce back from a non-conference setback earlier this week against Westfield State. As for the Bobcats, they should provide challenges on both ends of the court for these Panthers, so look for Middlebury to win this game by two or three points. PREDICTION: Middlebury College 

Williams College at Tufts University (MBB) | Friday, Jan. 11th at 7 p.m.: The Ephs arrive in Medford as the region’s best team. But can they continue their current momentum against a Jumbos squad, which looked pretty good earlier this week against UMass Boston? PREDICTION: Tufts University 

MIT at Springfield College (WBB) | Saturday, Jan. 12th at 1 p.m. : The Engineers have won eight-straight contest dating back to last month. They went on the road last week and scored an important league win over Smith College. We expect the same result this week against the Pride in Springfield. PREDICTION: MIT 

Rhode Island College at UMass Boston (WBB) | Saturday, Jan. 12th at 1 p.m.: Since falling to Bridgewater State earlier this month, the Beacons have been unstoppable, winning three-straight, including a pair of conference meetings against Plymouth State and UMass Dartmouth. Their momentum should certainly continue on Saturday in Boston. PREDICTION: UMass Boston 

Emerson College at Springfield College (MBB) | Saturday, Jan. 12th at 3 p.m.: The Lions have won three-straight, including a recent 84-65 win over MIT. Look for the Lions to make it four-straight on the road with a win in Springfield. PREDICTION: Emerson College 

Westfield State at Bridgewater State (WBB) | Saturday, Jan. 12th at 3 p.m.: The Owls scored an impressive win over Middlebury College earlier this week and should find a way to beat the Bears, who enter Saturday’s meeting on a three-game winning streak. PREDICTION: Westfield State 

Plymouth State at Western Conn. (MBB) | Saturday, Jan. 12th at 3 p.m.: Both teams will look to bounce back from recent conference setbacks with the edge going to the Colonials of Western Connecticut being at home. PREDICTION: Western Conn. 

Brandies University at Case Western (MBB) | Sunday, Jan. 13th at 12 p.m.: The Judges will look to bounce back from a recent setback to Amherst on Friday when they visit Carnegie Mellon. Two days later, they will look to cap the weekend with a win over the Spartans. PREDICTION: Brandeis University

Colby College at Trinity College (MBB) | Sunday, Jan. 13th at 2 p.m.: The Mules are one of our teams to watch going forward, and should find a way to top the Bantams on the road. PREDICTION: Colby College

The Beavers enter 2019 on a seven-game winning streak, which will be tested on Saturday when they visit Clark University.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games To Watch (Dec. 28-Dec. 31st)

NS 10 GAMES TO WATCH HOOPS

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Hoops 

It’s FRIDAY, which means … (drum roll please) … it is NOW time for a brand new edition of 10 Games to Watch this weekend in New England D3 Hoops!

Yes, it has been a few weeks since our last 10 Games to Watch, but entering this weekend’s contests, we have predicted 12 of 20 contests correctly (two posts), so let’s see how we do this weekend. (Last time we made predictions, we finished 5-5.

As always, stay connected with @NoontimeSports and @Noontime_Hoops on Twitter for updates, scores and more!


Men’s Basketball 

Nichols College vs. Eastern Conn. (Saturday, Dec. 29th at 3 p.m.): The Bison enter the Hampton Inn West Springfield/Naismith Classic as the team to beat. Nichols has won nine-straight and should find a way to pick-up their 10th victory against the Warriors. The winner of this match-up will face either host Springfield College or Salisbury University on Sunday. PREDICTION: Nichols College

Endicott College vs. Colby-Sawyer (Saturday, Dec. 29th at 5 p.m.): This game certainly has potential to be a high-scoring affair. Keep an eye on Endicott’s Keith Brown and Colby-Sawer’s Patrick Coffey as both players should provide their respective unit with a boost on the offensive end. PREDICTION: Endicott College 

Salem State vs. Thomas College (Saturday, Dec. 29th at 7 p.m.): The Vikings scored an exciting win over Endicott earlier this month to provide the Blue and Orange with some momentum heading into their holiday tournament. Expect that momentum from their three-point win to continue against the Terriers. PREDICTION: Salem State 

WPI vs. Maryville (TN) (Saturday, Dec. 29th at 7 p.m.): It’s been a few weeks since we last saw these Engineers in action – they scored an 86-71 win over Husson University in their last outing. Sure, the game feels like ages ago, but one should expect coach Chris Bartley‘s squad will be ready for this particular contest, along with a potential championship contest, too, at this weekend’s Tampa Bay Shootout. PREDICTION: WPI 

Emmanuel College vs. St. Joseph’s (Maine) (Sunday, Dec. 30th at 3 p.m.): This early season GNAC clash has potential for an exciting finish as both teams enter the Catholic Classic Tournament with some momentum. The Saints have won four-straight, while the Monks haven’t lost since falling to Tufts University last month. Both teams will be in action Saturday with St. Joseph’s facing Rivier University, while Emmanuel will take on Regis College. PREDICTION: St. Joseph’s (Maine) 


Women’s Basketball

Trinity College vs. Lehman (Friday, Dec. 28th at 2 p.m.): The Bantams enter the CUNYAC Coaches v. Cancer Tournament with some momentum, which they earned earlier this month by defeating both Connecticut College and Stevens. As of this morning, four players on the Trinity roster, including Courtney Erickson, are averaging 10 points or more. PREDICTION: Trinity College 

TCNJ at MIT (Saturday, Dec. 29th at 2 p.m.): This will be a good test for the Engineers, who will resume NEWMAC play one week later when they visit Smith College. MIT has been rather successful this month, but so have the Lions of TCNJ, who enter the non-conference clash on a six-game winning streak. MIT is averaging 72.9 points per game, while TCNJ’s offense averages 66.5 points. PREDICTION: MIT 

Babson College vs. Salve Regina (Sunday, Dec. 30th at 1 p.m.): Babson will host the Judy Pearson ’85 Memorial Tournament on Sunday and Monday – we expect them to find a way past the Seahawks to secure a championship match-up against the winner of St. Lawrence-UMass Dartmouth. Babson enters the two-day tournament on a five-game winning streak. PREDICTION: Babson College 

UMass Dartmouth vs. St. Lawrence (Sunday, Dec. 30th at 3 p.m.): As noted above, this will be one of four games taking place at Babson College on Sunday and Monday, but this is certainly an enticing match-up. Since falling to Bowdoin College, the Corsairs have rebounded with two important wins over Keene State and Johnson & Wales. PREDICTION: UMass Dartmouth 

Bates College vs. Springfield College (Monday, Dec. 31st at 1 p.m.): The Pride will attempt to defend their Hampton Inn West Springfield/Naismith Classic championship when they host the Bobcats of Bates College on the first day of their holiday tournament. The winner of this match-up will face either Newbury College or Vassar College on Tuesday. PREDICTION: Springfield College
