This day felt like it was inevitable.
It appears that NJIT’s search for a permanent conference home is nearing an end.
Coming off a season where the school advanced to the semifinals of the CIT and placing their best RPI finish in school history, NJIT will have plenty of expectations laid upon them next season.
Northern Kentucky ditching the Atlantic Sun conference to join the Horizon League might not seem like seismic news for the New York City area.
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.
There were 351 Division I basketball teams that started the 2014-15 season back in November. Only 16 will still be playing after Sunday night. And NJIT will be one of them after knocking off Canisius 78-73 Saturday night in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament quarterfinals before another full house (1.505) at the Fleisher Center in Newark.
The All-Metropolitan Men’s Basketball ballots were due yesterday. I’m a big fan of transparency, so for that reason I’m posting my full ballot here.
No one, least of all the players in the NJIT uniforms, wanted to leave the Fleischer Center floor Monday night. Why would they?
While NJIT has been enjoying their best season as Division I’s only independent team, and has begun the process to build a $100 million arena, it does not appear to have pressured any conference to take them in.
MAAC commissioner Rich Ensor makes sure that in every meeting with the school presidents and athletic directors that expansion is on the table.
