MIDDLEBURY — After two key NESCAC home wins this past weekend, the Middlebury College men’s basketball team will begin its quest for its fourth league playoff championship since 2009 at home this Saturday as the tournament’s No. 2 seed. The Panthers also won a non-league game on Tuesday.
The Panthers, now ranked No. 10 in NCAA Division III according to D3hoops.com, improved to 21-3, 8-2 in NESCAC play, by defeating then No. 8 Amherst this past Friday and following that up by knocking off Trinity on Saturday to nail down the league’s second seed.
