HACKENSACK, N.J. – As some crazy guy who travels to college basketball games with a stuffed basketball long after it was funny once put it, Greg Herenda arrived on the campus of Fairleigh Dickinson for his first Division I head coaching job to find his team had “exactly six players and zero assistant coaches”.

The first round of the NEC tournament was exciting as promised, so let’s break down the action! LIU Brooklyn 84, Sacred Heart 76 After a wonderful first half consisting of timely shooting and fantastic bench play from Iverson Fleming, LIU Brooklyn was able to hold off a Cane Broome surge and a raucous crowd to […]
It’s tournament time!
Before we embark on what promises to be a fascinating conference tournament this week, we here at Big Apple Buckets would like to present our NEC awards and all-conference teams.

Thursday night in front of a packed Pitt Center with 3:30 left and the Pioneers trailing league-leading Mount St. Mary’s by two, a double-teamed Cane Broome found […]
Unpredictable. Wide open. Difficult to handicap. This was how most people described the race to the NEC championship back in October and tonight condensed the standings even further. After all of the carnage, the top nine teams are just separated by 2 games.
