With one week in the books for the season, we’re beginning a weekly feature here at Big Apple Buckets that breaks down the NEC several different ways. Let’s begin with our stock watch!
With eight NEC programs beginning their 2014-15 season tonight, we summarized all of the opening night action. Going in, it wasn’t expected to be a strong night for the conference — according to KenPom, five of the eight teams were overwhelming underdogs (10% chance to win or less) with only Robert Morris considered as a moderate […]
This is the eighth of 10 NEC previews before the season starts. You can find links to the first seven at the bottom of this post.
On Monday I released my top impact transfers of the Northeast Conference; now it’s time for the freshmen.
Every season you can always count on several transfers — junior college or Division I — to make an immediate impact in the NEC.
Earlier this offseason we posted a “Way Too Early” all-conference assortment on the NEC, so now John and I are making it official.
With every NEC team’s non-conference schedule finally released (thanks Saint Francis!), I went through the games I’m most looking forward to as a fan. For a complete breakdown of every NEC program’s out-of-conference schedule, I highly recommend taking a look at Nelson Castillo’s NEC schedule breakdown over at The Blackbirds Hoops Journal.
Because point guard play has been a strength for the NEC in previous seasons, it’s expected the position will take a significant step back with the graduations of Julian Norfleet, Sidney Sanders, Jr., and Jason Brickman – the latest NCAA student athlete to crack 1,000 career assists. All three all-conference first teamers will be sorely missed. We’d […]
In the spirit of the “way too early” theme that’s constantly bestowed upon us this college basketball offseason, we attempted to formulate our own NEC all-conference teams, even if the first official jump ball is four months away.
With a majority of the NEC basketball scholarships filled for the 2014-15 season, it’s an excellent time to go over the conference’s transfer list. While this list isn’t final (remember, Shivaughn Wiggins leaving Mount St. Mary’s in July last season?), we’d be surprised if there was more activity this offseason. So without further ado, let’s break down the most important players […]
