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 Football: Price Steps Down At Husson

Gabby Price will not be coaching the Husson University football team this fall.

The tenured coach, who has guided the Eagles for 12 seasons, including the past six campaigns, announced his retirement this morning after guiding the Green and Gold to an 8-3 record this past season, as well as the program’s fifth Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) conference title.

“I am honored to have had the job and have appreciated every minute that I have had working with so many outstanding people,” Price said in this morning’s release, which was seen on the Husson athletics website.

“I love coaching because of the players playing and those who have played. I am and have been proud of our players in so many ways. They have won some games and also been great to each other.  Everyone has a story and many of our players have had an incredible journey in so many different directions. The greatest teachers in my life have been our players and for that I love them and will always be indebted to them.”

Price departs the Bangor, Maine campus as the winningest coach in program history. He has compiled a 72-45 mark in 12 seasons (2002-08 and 2013-18), while leading the Eagles to four NCAA Tournaments (2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018) and two ECAC Bowl Games in 2008 and 2015.

In 2017, Price guided the Eagles to a school record 10 wins, along with its first-ever NCAA Tournament win over heavily-favored Springfield College. The win extended the Eagles’ season to end of November 2017 where they faced No. 5/7 Delaware Valley.

2017 was also the final year Price coached halfback John Smith, who ended his time in Maine with 7,205 rushing yards (fourth most rushing yards by a Division III tailback), 81 rushing touchdowns (31 scores in 2017) and 370 receiving yards on 34 receptions.

As noted in today’s release, Price has coached 78 student-athletes that have earned all-conference honors, along with 11 players that collected major end of the year awards.

Price was tabbed the ECFC Coach of the Year three times at Husson, including this past season, while being named New England DII/DIII Coach of the Year in 2017. He has coached 15 All-Americans and 61 student-athletes that earned ECFC All-Academic awards.

Said Director of Athletics Frank Pergolizzi, “It has been an honor and our privilege to work with Coach Price during these past six football seasons. His commitment to Husson University and to the students in our football program has been outstanding. His priority has consistently been the health and welfare of each of our student-athletes. They are fortunate to have had the opportunity to have been coached by him.”

Not a lot has changed in a week as the top six teams remain the same, but we did see UMass Dartmouth move-up two spots, thanks to recent wins over Eastern Connecticut (64-60) and Castleton University (66-45). The Corsairs, who have won four-straight, will attempt to continue their current momentum later this week when they visit Southern Maine in an important conference clash before hosting Keene State on Saturday.

Trinity College also moved-up, checking-in ninth overall following a few recent wins over MCLA and St. Joseph’s (Long Island). The Bantams host Williams College on Friday followed by sixth-ranked Middlebury College next Sunday.

Finally, make sure to keep an eye on fifth-ranked Babson College this week, which hosts MIT in an important mid-week clash. The Beavers appear to be the team to beat in their conference, but don’t sleep on the Engineers, Springfield College and Smith College.

Alex Goslin‘s late layup with 10 seconds remaining not only helped Springfield College defeat MIT, but also secure a spot on this week’s New England D3 Women’s Basketball Top 10.

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
