This is March! Thrilling comebacks, big upsets, the quarterfinals of the NEC men’s basketball tournament had it all on Wednesday night. Big Apple Buckets had writers in Emmitsburg, MD and Staten Island, NY but there was also game action in Rhode Island and out in Moon Township, PA. What a night!
Tonight the NEC kicks off its long awaiting postseason tournament, so John and I felt it was a great time to preview the 2014 NEC Tournament with an e-mail chat.

A big congratulations to Andy Toole and the Robert Morris Colonials for clinching the No. 1 seed in the NEC tournament. All roads […]
After another exciting night of NEC hoops, the standings are really starting to take shape with LIU Brooklyn and Sacred Heart needing a miracle to qualify for the postseason tourney. Here’s another NEC roundup of the action from the second to last Thursday of the regular season.
The race for the NEC Player of the Year is picking up steam. I think most pundits would have Robert Morris’ Karvel Anderson leading Bryant’s Alex Francis at the moment. It certainly makes sense.
I’ve given in. Robert Morris is the best team in the NEC. I don’t care that they’re playing with eight players. They’re just that good right now.
