Listen to Ryan Peters and I discuss the NEC in another episodes of the hit podcast NEC Fast Break. In this one we catch up with the players and teams we missed last week.
Three to five college basketball games is hardly a relevant sample size, but there have been some interesting trends, story lines and awesome individual performances from the first week and a half of the 2016-17 season.
The road was a tough place to be for most of the local teams on Sunday. Hopefully Feast Week can give every team some much needed home cooking.
Yale went and grabbed a big scalp for the Ivy League. St. Francis Brooklyn finally played a game and Seton Hall crushed Central Connecticut.
Saturday was a chance for a few more teams to get into the action, with 36 games in total. In particular the Northeast Conference played a number of games, and one former NEC player had a huge day.
Going to be reviving this semi-regular feature to recap what happened around college basketball on big nights of the week. Considering there were 163 games on opening night, it seems like a great time to recap all the action.
Like many teams in the NEC, the Robert Morris roster that will take the floor this Friday to start its season will look vastly different than the potential one.
It’s that time of the year again, when I make my best educated guess as to which freshmen newcomers will provide the most impact within the NEC.
Robert Morris took a big step backward last season finishing 8-10 in the NEC and 10-22 overall. In particular, the Colonials regressed offensively, falling off by more than 10 points per 100 possessions.
The KenPom preseason rankings for the 2016-17 season have arrived! Leaves are turning colors, the air is getting chillier and practices have been underway for several weeks now. Before you know it, November 11 will be upon us!
