The Colby College men’s basketball team extended its current winning streak to 15 games this past weekend by defeating both Middlebury College and Williams College on the road.

Colby, which improves to 4-0 in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) play, has been an impressive story this season – can they continue their momentum later this week against Husson University on Tuesday, January 21st and Bowdoin College on Saturday, January 25th? We’ll have to wait and see.

Brandeis University was this week’s biggest mover, checking in third overall after securing the tenth position one week ago. The Judges scored an exciting 75-73 win yesterday over Emory University, handing the Eagles their second setback of the 2019-20 season, along with their initial loss against a member of the University Athletic Association (UAA).

The Judges are currently tied for first in the UAA with Washington University – the two teams will meet on Friday, January 24th in a VERY important match-up.

Tufts University moved into the fifth position after rebounding from an early week loss to Suffolk University with back-to-back wins over Amherst College (No. 10) and Hamilton College.

Finally, the Blues Jays of St. Joseph’s (Conn.) joined our poll at the ninth position – the Blue and Gold have not lost a game since falling to the Jumbos last November.

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.

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.
