UMass Lowell, Cornell and Hofstra are just some of the surprises of the young college basketball season.
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!
With eight NEC programs beginning their 2014-15 season tonight, we summarized all of the opening night action. Going in, it wasn’t expected to be a strong night for the conference — according to KenPom, five of the eight teams were overwhelming underdogs (10% chance to win or less) with only Robert Morris considered as a moderate […]
