About Ryan Peters
A few weeks ago, I posted my Way Too Early NEC All-Conference Teams thoughts. Given the turnover and roster youth in the NEC, narrowing down my top 15 players of 2015-16 was rather difficult.

The Ospreys won 20 Division I games this season and were dominant in the beaten down Atlantic Sun Conference, winning both the regular season and […]
The NEC finals are officially set! With the #1 and #2 seed advancing into the tournament’s final game, let’s break down the action on the last Saturday of the NEC conference season.
