Because point guard play has been a strength for the NEC in previous seasons, it’s expected the position will take a significant step back with the graduations of Julian Norfleet, Sidney Sanders, Jr., and Jason Brickman – the latest NCAA student athlete to crack 1,000 career assists. All three all-conference first teamers will be sorely missed. We’d […]
In the spirit of the “way too early” theme that’s constantly bestowed upon us this college basketball offseason, we attempted to formulate our own NEC all-conference teams, even if the first official jump ball is four months away.
With a majority of the NEC basketball scholarships filled for the 2014-15 season, it’s an excellent time to go over the conference’s transfer list. While this list isn’t final (remember, Shivaughn Wiggins leaving Mount St. Mary’s in July last season?), we’d be surprised if there was more activity this offseason. So without further ado, let’s break down the most important players […]
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 […]
