Watched most of Colby-Gordon (Fri), some of Hamilton-Keene and most of Williams-Wesleyan. Any coach who plays zone against Colby this year should have his job questioned! Gordon played zone until 17 mins left in the game. Made a little spurt until Colby adjusted with drive and kicks - they are so quick that they will be tough to handle in man but they are deadly against the zone. Freshman King looked solid in the middle of the zone offense.

Hamilton looks deep - Kendall and Tirbaso stepped up while Gilmour struggled, looks like he missed last game so maybe he was still dealing with a nagging injury. Starting big guy McEneney hit a couple of threes as well. Some depth for this year and the future.

Williams looked solid as well, Karpowicz proved he is going to be tough to handle in the post, even had a nice drive. Rest of the team played well even though Spivey had a rough shooting night. Wesleyan looked like it may struggle this year. Hard to know if it was just an off shooting night.

Did not get a chance to watch the Hamilton game but one thing that stands out in the box score is that Gilmour scored 27 points on only 12 shots - thatís remarkable efficiency.

Was able to watch from about the 10 minute mark of the first half until about the same in the second half. From what I saw you nailed the analysis nescac1. Jovan Jones was very impressive - he made two steals towards the end of the first half that led to easy buckets that changed the momentum of the game and allowed the Ephs to go in up 4 at half.  Karp was impressive as well as he was able to impose his will down low.

Outside of those two, you could also add Trinity's Donald Jorden and Tufts' Luke Rogers to the list.

I didn't see Trinity play last year but saw Tufts a few times and would agree on Rogers. I saw him play in HS and he looked much improved to me, I think he has a lot of potential.

While both teams lose their starting centers, Midd can insert a proven center in Sobel ready to replace (and likely add more to the offense) McCord while Amherst doesn't have a proven replacement for Big Joe and CJ bachman (incoming 6'10'' freshman could be huge for them).

I only saw them play a handful of times last year but couldn't Sellew be considered a proven replacement as a big man? It appears to me he is probably more of a stretch 4 but outside of Williams (Karpowicz) and now maybe Middlebury (Sobel), how many NESCAC teams feature a true post 5?

Middlebury looks loaded to me if this transfer Eastman is a real player.

amh63, I am not a NESCAC graduate nor a fan of any particular program, I have younger kids who play and through following HS/AAU hoops in the Boston area, I have come to know some friends with sons and daughters playing NESCAC hoops at various schools. I went to the NESCAC semis a couple of years ago at Tufts and since then have been following more closely.

Nice pick-up for Tufts, just won the "Shot for Life" competition in MA.

If they can handle Whitman's press and get out on their threes, Williams should be able to dominate with what appears to be huge size differentials at each position....

"
Clearly the Williams' defeat Whitman is an epic win that was expected by few before the game...



Jumpshot , not patting myself on the back, but anyone who has seen Williams play this year could have anticipated how Williams could win that game

Great observations, Hamilton went in that run without any seniors in the game, Kendall and Osarenrenís dunks ignited the crowd and the Conts... Still plenty of game left but it would be great for the conference to have a William-Hamilton Elite 8 game in that atmosphere tomorrow night...

I confess I did not watch the whole game but Whitman appears to be on the smaller side (I believe they started a 6'3' center), very quick, press the whole time and jack up a lot of threes - very fast-paced game in what appeared to be an electric environment. Williams appears to be almost a traditional D1-sized team who plays solid, fundamental basketball. If they can handle Whitman's press and get out on their threes, Williams should be able to dominate with what appears to be huge size differentials at each position. Again, very limited perspective here after watching one half of Whitman basketball.

Ah, figured as much, happy for Hamilton, will be an interesting couple of games - watched a little bit of Whitman last night and they are fun team to watch. Will be an interesting contrast of styles with Williams.

New to D3 basketball - how does the site selection work? Wouldn't Whitman host as top remaining seed?
