With one week in the books for the season, we’re beginning a weekly feature here at Big Apple Buckets that breaks down the NEC several different ways. Let’s begin with our stock watch!
On the second Saturday of the season, Georgetown will host their second NEC program in the young season, Robert Morris. The Hoyas have made easy work of their first two opponents in St. Francis Brooklyn (that writeup is here) and Texas A&M Corpus Christi, so the Colonials enter as heavy underdogs (a 5% chance of […]
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!
Army led by as many as 12 points at the Pope Center on Wednesday night, but a late run closed the gap for St. Francis Brooklyn and gave Brent Jones a decent look from three to tie the game. Unfortunately that attempt clanged off the left rim. Army moved to 3-0 on the young season, while […]
After a last-second loss to Stony Brook to start the season Columbia welcomed Wagner to Levien Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Lions were still without a number of key players due to injury and went almost 10.5 minutes in the second half without a field goal, but managed to pull out a 14-point victory over […]

It was a difficult loss, considering the Red Flash […]
What a difference the level of competition can make. Three NEC teams played on Monday night against opponents of vastly different quality. What transpired might seem obvious in retrospect.
Coming off a monster upset in Miami on the opening night of the 2013-14 season, fans and pundits alike were expecting St. Francis Brooklyn to give Georgetown a run for their money in Washington D.C. this Saturday.
Sacred Heart stunned Hartford in the final game of the Connecticut 6 triple header, controlling the game throughout and blowing out the Hawks with a decisive 71-53 victory.
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 […]
