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.
In the end, Jason Brickman’s 1,000th assist wasn’t overly flashy. A strong drive down the right-hand side of the key followed by a quick rotation and a kick out to an eagerly waiting Gerrell Martin for an easy three. One pass, one shot, one bucket.
With the regular season in the rear view mirror, now is the time for John and I to release our consensus 2013-14 all-conference teams and awards. In all honestly, determining the award winners was easier than expected, while situating 15 all-conference players in their appropriate place proved to be more difficult. Nevertheless, here they are!
It’s all over. The NEC regular season has come to a close. There was a bunch to play for today, as the middle seeds for the NEC tournament were undecided – including the key home court advantage in the quarterfinals. Now the field is set and Wednesday will give us four exciting playoff games.
On the final Thursday of the NEC regular season, several teams were jockeying for playoff position and seeding. Let’s recap all five games from tonight.
LIU Brooklyn is still alive! The Blackbirds go into the final weekend with their opportunity to defend the NEC championship still intact thanks to a victory on Tuesday over Sacred Heart. The odds are still long though. LIU has about a 24% chance of securing the eighth and final spot in the tournament.
The days of the NEC regular season are dwindling. You can tell because teams are starting to clinch the playoff positions we’ve only spoken about as hypotheticals for much of the season. 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.
A weird thing happened on the way to an NEC championship, the tempo-free metrics and standings decided to agree. Yeah, I know it’s weird. Robert Morris’ blowout of St. Francis Brooklyn has pushed the Colonials to the top.
