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 […]


The Route 7 Rivalry

Once again, we have accompanied our preseason preview with an updated follow-up, this one appropriately in depth considering the magnitude of the matchup.  Jan. 26: WILLIAMS (5-5, 17-8) Details: Saturday, January 26, 2012, 2:00 pm (at Williams) Last year: Middlebury 80-79, Middlebury 73-61 It seems like a lot of NESCAC observers are down on Williams this year […]



Jan. 18: HAMILTON (15-10, 4-6) Details: Friday, 6:00 pm (at Middlebury) Last year: Middlebury 76-64 Hamilton lost top scorer Pat Sullivan and will have a hard time making up for his absence, but will look to rely on their tall senior big men, 6’6” Eric Benvenuti (7.2 ppg) and 6’8” Ken Click (7.1 ppg). Jack Roberts will […]


Conference Home Opening Weekend

This weekend Middlebury (11-0, 2-0) will host Connecticut College (5-8, 0-2) and Wesleyan (7-6, 1-1) to open the home conference schedule. Like last week, I’ve re-posted our pre-season notes on both of these games below, and added some new thoughts based on observations from the season thus far. Jan. 11: CONNECTICUT COLLEGE (1-9, 8-16) Date: Friday, 6:00 pm […]


The Pepin Experience: A Guide to Watching the 2012-13 Panthers

Over the last four years, the Middlebury student body has embraced the success of the men’s basketball team, which has won more games than any other Division III team over that period. That support is particularly evident during J-Term, when, unlike students at many other schools who are still on winter vacation, the Middlebury student […]
