It hasn’t been a good start for the Northeast Conference, but tonight the league had a chance to earn some victories against mid-major equals. Let’s see how everyone fared on the first Wednesday of the 2014-15 season!
This is the second in what will be 10 preview capsules as we prepare for this NEC season! Click here for our preview on our #10 team: the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights.
On Monday I released my top impact transfers of the Northeast Conference; now it’s time for the freshmen.
The top of Ken Pomeroy’s NEC projections make a ton of sense. Robert Morris and St. Francis Brooklyn are considered the class of the NEC and there they are at the top of the standings, though a little lower than the league would probably like at 177th and 198th respectively.
