Listen to Ryan Peters and I discuss the NEC in another episodes of the hit podcast NEC Fast Break. In this one we catch up with the players and teams we missed last week.
Three to five college basketball games is hardly a relevant sample size, but there have been some interesting trends, story lines and awesome individual performances from the first week and a half of the 2016-17 season.
Yale went and grabbed a big scalp for the Ivy League. St. Francis Brooklyn finally played a game and Seton Hall crushed Central Connecticut.
Going to be reviving this semi-regular feature to recap what happened around college basketball on big nights of the week. Considering there were 163 games on opening night, it seems like a great time to recap all the action.
Throughout the offseason, I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter regarding several unknown players within the NEC. Because there’s plenty of opportunity given the graduations and transfers, coaches are desperate to prop up their guys in the preseason to see if they’ll rise to the challenge. Sometimes they will, sometimes they won’t.
It’s that time of the year again, when I make my best educated guess as to which freshmen newcomers will provide the most impact within the NEC.
For the fifth straight year, I traveled to the Barclay’s Center to cover NEC Social Media Day, an event I always enjoy covering. Besides getting to catch up with a majority of the league’s coaches and SIDs, this day also signals that college basketball is right around the corner!
The KenPom preseason rankings for the 2016-17 season have arrived! Leaves are turning colors, the air is getting chillier and practices have been underway for several weeks now. Before you know it, November 11 will be upon us!
Every school in the NEC has officially announced its 2016-17 non-conference schedule, so, like we did with the MAAC two weeks ago, let’s hand out some scheduling awards.
Unless you’re at one of about 20 top schools in the country hiring a head coach is similar to recruiting. You go find the best one you can and hope they’re a good fit.
