In a stunning decision, LIU Brooklyn has decided to not renew head coach Jack Perri’s contract when it expires in August.
Mount St. Mary’s played an incredible half against Villanova and there was lots of other action around the country on a big day for the college basketball postseason.
Now that the postseason has kicked off it’s the return of “About Last Night.” I’ll take a quick look at how the teams in the area and conferences we cover fare in the postseason until they’re all eliminated. And we know at least a few will have some more games!
All Bashir Mason could do was smile. What else was there to do? Keith Braxton faked, got stuck, and self-admittedly threw the ball at the basket, and it subsquently made one revolution around the rim and dropped, giving Saint Francis University a 71-70 victory in the NEC semifinals Saturday afternoon. As the ball finally finished […]
In our NEC tournament preview, I noted that the conference had the second highest rate of close games in the regular season – 30% of them ended within 4 points or were decided in overtime.

In the end, he did push the Romans back with victory in […]
Everyone makes mistakes in prognostication, especially when it comes to the volatile and unpredictable Northeast Conference. This season I did a fair job at handicapping the teams, at least when compared to last season’s jumble that saw my ninth place team (Fairleigh Dickinson) play in the NCAA Tournament.
Barring the biggest upset in the history of American sports, the season will come to end in some fashion or another for all NEC teams in the next month or so.
