You never get a second chance to make a first impression (might as well get all the cliches out of the way on Opening Day), but in the mid-major basketball world, particularly for the six teams competing at the Connecticut 6 Friday night, first impressions will mean very little in the end. Unless Yale […]
College basketball is finally upon us and I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Connecticut 6 (CT6) basketball tournament, an event that allows the 6 mid-major Division I teams from the Nutmeg State to face off in three games.
It’s been a quiet offseason for yours truly for a number of reasons that you probably could care less about. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t kept track of the league; in fact, just the opposite! I was on the scoop for Blue Ribbon, so allow me (and John) to muddle some thoughts together for […]
On Monday, I presented my educated guesses as to who would emerge from the NEC freshman class. With only two days left before the first jump ball of the 2015-16 season, I’m attempting to highlight the impact transfers of the conference this morning.
This almost feels a bit like cheating – waiting this long to release my top impact freshmen for the 2015-16 season. The timing was purposeful as I wanted to gather as much information as I could from coaches and scrimmage box scores.

With less than three weeks remaining from the first jump ball in the college basketball season, Ken Pomeroy was gracious enough to unveil his highly anticipated rankings this past weekend. Prognostication is usually a fool’s game for the most part, yet breaking down a well-respected advanced statistics projection system such as KenPom is a fun exercise […]
As the NEC writer for the upcoming Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, I’ve started my deep analysis for each individual program. I still have several coaches to speak with throughout the summer, but I wanted to convey my current thoughts on the conference’s returning individual talent. Because 10 of 15 players have graduated or transferred from last […]
I’ve chimed in on a couple of major NEC transfers this offseason (Marcquise Reed here and Andrew Smeathers here), but during my brief hiatus from the blog I failed to address a few other significant defections. Allow me to catch up as I assess how the recent turnover may affect two programs that finished in the bottom of […]
With the 2014-15 Northeast Conference regular season in the books, now is the time for John and I to announce our awards and all-conference teams for the end of the season.
