Projecting the NCAA Tournament Teams

Tomorrow at 12:30 PM, the NCAA Selection Committee will announce the 62-team field for this year’s 2013 D3 Championship Tournament. There are 42 teams automatically-qualified based on conference championships (Pool A), 1 non-automatic-qualifying conference championship (Pool B), and 19 at-large bids. The first 42 teams will be known to everyone by tonight as conference tournaments […]

Middlebury Basketball Radio Special

We host a weekly radio, this semester running from 2-3:30 PM on Thursdays. We were lucky enough to have Coach Alex Popp, Joey Kizel, and James Jensen in the studio this past week. We spent the rest of the time talking about the last few games and the games ahead this weekend. Amherst 3OT highlights: […]


Nolan Thompson should win NESCAC Player of the Year

The NESCAC Player of the Year talk is heating up, and with coaches voting on awards this week and announcements coming out at the end of the tournament, we wanted to make our nomination today, before postseason play starts. While most NESCAC observes are prognosticating a three-way race between Aaron Toomey, Willy Workman, and Michael […]


Revisiting Preseason Predictions

With postseason play beginning Saturday, we wanted to quickly revisit our preseason predictions, because we only went as far as the end of the regular season at that time. It is always instructive and helpful to go back and evaluate our picks, so that we know what went right and what didn’t. ROSTER AND MINUTES […]



Colby preseason comments with updated preview: Feb. 2: COLBY (7-17, 1-9) Details: Saturday, 2:00 pm (at Colby) Last year: Middlebury 72-53 After losing leading-scorer Ben Foreman, Colby is likely to spend another season at the bottom of the NESCAC. They are touting their freshman class on their website, sort of like an MLB cellar-dweller that shows promotions […]


Nolan Thompson Interview

Nolan Thompson was interviewed after the Bowdoin win, in which he had 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-9 3FG), 4 steals, and held Bryan Hurley to 3 points. If you don’t know Nolan Thompson, this is what he is always like: sincere, selfless, and team-first. We are lucky to have him. Some quotes from the interview: […]



Our preseason Bowdoin preview and some updated thoughts: Feb. 1: BOWDOIN (5-5, 17-8) Details: Friday, 6:00 pm (at Bowdoin) Last year: Middlebury 79-76 Outside of Middlebury’s Ryan Sharry and Joey Kizel, Bowdoin had the best scoring duo in the conference in Will Hanley (18.4 ppg) and Ryan O’Connell (14.2 ppg). Unfortunately for the Polar Bears, both have […]


Keene State

Opponent: Keene State (11-7, 6-3) Details: Tuesday, Pepin, 7pm Last season, we drove down to Keene State to watch our 18-0, top-ranked Panthers fall to a talented Keene State team that was hungry for the upset. Middlebury never could pull away from the Owls, and blew a late game lead, failing to score a field […]


Middlebury Can’t Finish

The Panthers had Williams on the ropes, up eight with five minutes to go, and fell apart, ultimately losing by one, 64-63, after scoring only one basket in those last five minutes. The end of the game was in too many ways similar to the loss at Keene State last year, and — to a lesser […]
