We’re back! Ryan Peters joins me for the season opening episode of NEC Fast Break.
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.
The road was a tough place to be for most of the local teams on Sunday. Hopefully Feast Week can give every team some much needed home cooking.
LIU Brooklyn was constructed as a win-now group for the 2016-17 season, even after Martin Hermannsson decided to take his talents to the European professional leagues in July.
It wasn’t quite as close as last season, but for the second season in a row LIU Brooklyn escaped a tight contest against Loyola (MD) with a victory.
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.
Dan Hanner and Luke Winn published their 1-351 rankings of every team in college basketball on Tuesday afternoon. There were some obvious picks, like Duke at No. 1, and some perplexing rankings.
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!
