Conference season is winding down and my end-of-season NIT projection is starting to look quite similar to some “if the season ended today” NCAA Tournament projections. I released a new bracket this morning and it’s probably time I took a moment to discuss some of the more controversial points. Continue reading
This is what happens when it all goes right. Columbia was scorching hot on offense and constantly disrupted Cornell on its way to an 88-62 victory at Levien Gymnasium on Saturday night. Continue reading
Happy New Year! We’ve made it to 2018 and with the turning over of the calendar comes a new NIT bracket projection. Continue reading
In a change of pace from earlier in the season, the middle of the America East conference showed some bite this past week, with a number of teams winning all of their games.

(Along with a tiny track record representing between a third to a tenth of a total schedule.) Continue reading
The NYC Buckets coverage area poll is back! Now that we’re into December we’re running out newest edition. Seton Hall and St. John’s are still the favorite, but there has been some shakeup undearneath. Continue reading
