If a Mount St. Mary’s team that finished 8-21 the season prior wasn’t ready for the 2013 NEC championship against LIU Brooklyn, the reigning conference champions, they certainly were ready this time around. Right out of the gate, the Mountaineers couldn’t miss a shot, hitting 12 of their first 16 attempts, building a double-digit lead […]
We wanted a way to have lots of people comment about the NEC championship game between #4 seed Mount St. Mary’s and #1 seed Robert Morris as it happens. Join us for this CoverItLive event!
The NEC has to be thrilled with how both games were showcased this afternoon on Fox College Sports and MSG+. Both semifinal matchups went right down to the wire, but in the end there will be a rematch of the 2009 NEC championship game between Mount St. Mary’s and Robert Morris. To the recaps…
This is March! Thrilling comebacks, big upsets, the quarterfinals of the NEC men’s basketball tournament had it all on Wednesday night. Big Apple Buckets had writers in Emmitsburg, MD and Staten Island, NY but there was also game action in Rhode Island and out in Moon Township, PA. What a night!

Even though the two-time defending winner Kenneth Ortiz is still in the league – and still playing great defense – there are anywhere from five to 10 players that could legitimately challenge him for the award.
It’s all over. The NEC regular season has come to a close. There was a bunch to play for today, as the middle seeds for the NEC tournament were undecided – including the key home court advantage in the quarterfinals. Now the field is set and Wednesday will give us four exciting playoff games.
With only one regular season game remaining, a majority of the playoff bound NEC squads continue to fight for seeding, and in some cases, the ability to host a first round playoff game.
