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 […]
Another offseason means another chance to use returning-possession minutes (RPM) to try and predict the upcoming college basketball season.

Tiebreakers! As currently constructed, the NEC standings are locked into a tiebreaker hell, so in the meantime let’s sort through Saturday’s action to see how the rankings are shaking out.
On the second to last Thursday of the regular season, all eight teams have officially punched their ticket to the NEC tournament. Now it’s all about seeding, so let’s break down the action to see where everyone stands with just three regular season games remaining.
