Two more hurdles. Had he been wired with a lie detector, St. Francis Brooklyn coach Glenn Braica may or may not have set off all kinds of alarms after Wednesday night’s 79-70 NEC quarterfinal victory over rival LIU Brooklyn when he said, “I don’t even know what Tuesday is. I’m just thinking about Saturday.”
Well, that was fun, but only if you’re a Bryant fan! For the first round of the NEC tournament, there was plenty of exciting action and great performances to sift through.
In what was originally thought of as an unpredictable conference, the Northeast Conference turned out to be … well, predictable!
With the 2014-15 Northeast Conference regular season in the books, now is the time for John and I to announce our awards and all-conference teams for the end of the season.
The NEC postseason is almost here! After tonight’s action, just one regular season game remains for each team before the conference tournament begins next Thursday. Let’s break down all of the action as the top eight teams (well not the top seeded St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers) continue to jockey for position.
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.
We’re closer to having everything go through Brooklyn! There are five NEC nights left in the season. On this one both St. Francis Brooklyn and LIU Brooklyn pulled off victories to move up in the standings — and help each other out.
It’s been a busy week of travel for yours truly, so instead of churning out my nightly NEC recaps for the past week, I decided to offer some thoughts on the NEC season as we head into the down stretch.
As we enter into the month of February, it’s now abundantly clear who the contenders and pretenders are of the Northeast Conference. With more than half of the league game in the books, the standings have separated into tiers. Let’s sift through the action on the final January slate.
