hudson hansen hook shot

Hudson Hansen and the Williams men are back at Chandler Gym on Saturday for a showdown against Middlebury. Both teams are nationally ranked in the Top 25.

Wednesday night, Williams beat Amherst in men’s basketball on a last-second blocked shot that got the standing-room-only crowd in Chandler Gym rocking.

Saturday afternoon, it won’t be a Little Three game on the floor inside Chandler. It will, however, be a game with NESCAC and possible NCAA Division III Tournament implications.
