Two stars aligned and with a little help from their friend the St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers defeated Mount St. Mary’s 73-67 in overtime.
About John Templon
We’re a few games into conference season, but things are no more clear in NIT Bracketology land. There are still too many teams on a too crowded bubble.
A week after Columbia went to Ithaca and defeated Cornell to open Ivy League play the Big Red came down to Morningside Heights and returned the favor. The Lions offense looks completely lost in a 57-47 loss that dropped Columbia to 1-1 on the young Ivy season.
Lucky Jones’ clutch three-pointer carried Robert Morris to a gritty road victory over St. Francis Brooklyn on Saturday evening. The win brings the Colonials into a three-way tie with the Terriers and Bryant — who lost at home to Sacred Heart.
A lot went down in the NEC this past weekend, and while Ryan had time to prepare a NEC Weekend Recap, here are some of my thoughts about the past week in NEC play.
We’re now six games into MAAC play. Monmouth is surprisingly tied with Iona atop the regular season standings at 5-1, but the tempo-free standings actually have a different team challenging the Gaels (though no one is really even close).
This is a guest post by Ronak Patel Born and raised in Harlem, New York; Khalid McCaskill’s exposure to basketball came early.
Columbia dropped its second game two local competition with a 70-61 defeat to Stony Brook at Levien Gymnasium Tuesday.
Then there were three. In the second night of NEC play three teams remained undefeated after the first weekend thanks to big Monday victories.
It’s a new year and with that comes with a new power poll. Recently there have been a number of games matching two New York City area teams. Those results are reflected in our newest poll. (Though apparently our voters forgot about the Hofstra-Columbia game?)
