There was no college basketball 2,300 years ago (as far as you know), but there were talented coaches, eh, commanders like Pyrrhus of Epicus, who figured taking down this new upstart power in Italy called Rome would be difficult, but certainly not impossible. 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. For most, it will be a defeat at some stage of the upcoming NEC Tournament. However, for Central Connecticut (and St. Francis Brooklyn) it’s […]
As all of the NEC teams are entering the last few weeks of conference play and jockeying for position in the NEC Tournament, it got me thinking about all the players I’ve seen who never represented the conference in the ‘Big Dance.’ So, what if we were able to give all those players one last […]
As I spent time watching NEC basketball over the past week, I wondered who the most invaluable players throughout the league were.
On Groundhog Day, the Mount further distanced themselves from the rest of the pack, while the rest of the league continued to jockey for position in the race toward home court in the NEC tourney. Let’s break down the action from the first set of February games.
It wasn’t the most attractive of outings, but when it came time to decide it, LIU Brooklyn’s veteran players did what they’ve done for much of this season: push the Blackbirds past the finish line in front. Thursday night, it was Iverson Fleming and Jerome Frink who came up with the big plays to get […]
The NEC has almost always been known for its guards, but unfortunately this season has been more about the players that are no longer with the conference than those currently participating. Rodney Pryor has had a great season (even though his team has not) at Georgetown, Marcquise Reed has a few big shots to his […]
We recently documented the plight of Tom Moore and his offensive struggles at Quinnipiac last season, specifically the inability to shoot the ball. Well, Glenn Braica could definitely empathize with his St. Francis Brooklyn squad this season. Unfortunately for the Terriers, just two years removed from an NEC regular season title (and one game away […]
Central Connecticut earned its first victory, Mount St. Mary’s and Fairleigh Dickinson separated themselves a little bit from the pack, and there were a number of thrilling finishes on Saturday.
