Columbia head coach Kyle Smith said that the 2014-2015 season will be about going from good to great.
We’re officially in the doldrums of summer and still more than 100 days away from the start of college basketball season. But the team at Big Apple Buckets is already thinking about how the 2014-15 season can be the site’s best ever.
Why hasn’t someone hired Steve Prohm away from Murray State yet? That’s the question I’ve come to lately.
Columbia had a season for the ages in 2013-14. The Lions won 21 games, won two games in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament, and finished in the top half of the Ivy League. It was the first major step in Kyle Smith’s rebuilding of a program that hadn’t won 20 games in a season since 1969-70.
I was unable to be at Levien Gymnasium for Columbia’s season finale, but Ray Curren (The Mid-Majority’s ambitious traveling writer and Big Apple Buckets contributor) helped us out with this guest post.
One of the most interesting things about the CollegeInsider.com Tournament is that we don’t know the match ups before the prior round finishes. Unlike the NCAA tournament, which is locked into a Dayton-Stanford Sweet 16 game, the CIT reconfigures its bracket after each round.
The postseason came to Levien Gymnasium for the first time ever and it turned out to be a ton of fun.
No one heard whether or not Justin Sears called his shot, so it’s a good thing they don’t play by playground rules at Yale.
Almost every team in America was playing today thanks to either the wrapping up of conference season or tournaments. We’ve got tons of coverage from the MAAC tournament and the recap of Wagner’s semifinal loss. Here’s what else happened for New York City teams.
Alex Rosenberg lay back in his chair during Columbia’s postgame press conference. The Lions had just sealed their first winning season in the Ivy League since 1993. Tomorrow they will be playing for their 20th win of the season.
