In a relatively quiet offseason for the NEC, Sacred Heart suffered the first blow in the injury department. Per a source inside the Pioneers’ program, junior forward De’von Barnett had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in June and will likely miss the entire 2015-16 season as a result.
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.

Tiebreakers! As currently constructed, the NEC standings are locked into a tiebreaker hell, so in the meantime let’s sort through Saturday’s action to see how the rankings are shaking out.
We all want to think our hard work will pay off in whatever we do, maybe it’s a promotion, maybe it’s just benching more or running a faster 5K. The zero-sum game of team athletics doesn’t always lend itself to linear growth, however. To climb the ladder, you must push someone else down a rung. […]
