When the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook is released later this off-season (you can reserve a copy here!), many might be surprised that I picked Bryant to finish fourth in the Northeast Conference.
Before we embark on what promises to be a fascinating conference tournament this week, we here at Big Apple Buckets would like to present our NEC awards and all-conference teams.
Just because the NEC tournament teams have all clinched doesn’t mean the final week of the regular season won’t be exciting! Everyone was jockeying for position coming into tonight, so it’s time to break down the action in a league where the home team has a losing record (39-41) in NEC play.
