In a relatively quiet offseason for the NEC, Sacred Heart suffered the first blow in the injury department. Per a source inside the Pioneers’ program, junior forward De’von Barnett had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in June and will likely miss the entire 2015-16 season as a result.
A few weeks ago, I posted my Way Too Early NEC All-Conference Teams thoughts. Given the turnover and roster youth in the NEC, narrowing down my top 15 players of 2015-16 was rather difficult.

The Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association announced the winners of their Division I basketball awards today and in general the voters, of which I’m one, seem to have done a credible job.
The first major transfer domino of the NEC offseason dropped on the eve of Good Friday when the reigning NEC Rookie of the Year decided to take his talents to a bigger stage.
