As the NEC writer for the upcoming Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, I’ve started my deep analysis for each individual program. I still have several coaches to speak with throughout the summer, but I wanted to convey my current thoughts on the conference’s returning individual talent. Because 10 of 15 players have graduated or transferred from last […]
The first major transfer domino of the NEC offseason dropped on the eve of Good Friday when the reigning NEC Rookie of the Year decided to take his talents to a bigger stage.
It seemed too good to be true. Andy Toole fresh off an NCAA tournament appearance with Robert Morris was going to come to the Bronx and resurrect the Fordham program.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Robert Morris was simply no match for Duke Friday evening in the second round of the NCAA tournament, falling 85-56.

The Ospreys won 20 Division I games this season and were dominant in the beaten down Atlantic Sun Conference, winning both the regular season and […]
It’s taken a lot of time to process what happened last night on Remsen Street.
Despite a furious comeback by St. Francis Brooklyn, Robert Morris managed to punch their ticket to the NCAA tournament for the first time in Andy Toole’s five year tenure. For the Terriers it means to wait another season as one of the five original Division I teams that have not made the NCAA tournament field, […]
St. Francis Brooklyn had all the sentimental value on their side heading into Tuesday’s NEC final. We don’t have to rehash the curse of never having been to the NCAA Tournament here, you’ve seen it, surely.
