Men’s Basketball Preview Part IV: Middlebury’s NESCAC Opponents (and projected final standings)

The NESCAC is arguably the top conference in all of Division III basketball (combined 71% winning percentage vs. non-conference opponents over the last two seasons), and this year the top tier of the conference goes deeper than any year in recent memory.

Damon and I have spent plenty […]
