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!
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 […]
This is the final NEC preview before the season starts today! You can find links to the first nine at the bottom of this post.
Earlier this offseason we posted a “Way Too Early” all-conference assortment on the NEC, so now John and I are making it official.
On March 9, 2011, Robert Morris held a slim two-point advantage over LIU Brooklyn with three minutes left in overtime. Believe it or not, that moment was the closest Andy Toole has ever gotten to qualifying for the NCAA tournament as the Colonials head coach.
With every NEC team’s non-conference schedule finally released (thanks Saint Francis!), I went through the games I’m most looking forward to as a fan. For a complete breakdown of every NEC program’s out-of-conference schedule, I highly recommend taking a look at Nelson Castillo’s NEC schedule breakdown over at The Blackbirds Hoops Journal.
Because point guard play has been a strength for the NEC in previous seasons, it’s expected the position will take a significant step back with the graduations of Julian Norfleet, Sidney Sanders, Jr., and Jason Brickman – the latest NCAA student athlete to crack 1,000 career assists. All three all-conference first teamers will be sorely missed. We’d […]
In the spirit of the “way too early” theme that’s constantly bestowed upon us this college basketball offseason, we attempted to formulate our own NEC all-conference teams, even if the first official jump ball is four months away.
