As we quickly approach the midway point of the NEC conference season, John and I wanted to assess each team’s current standing among the muddle. John, in fact, ran some regular season simulations based on the current standings and KenPom’s rankings using his projection based system.
Unpredictable. Wide open. Difficult to handicap. This was how most people described the race to the NEC championship back in October and tonight condensed the standings even further. After all of the carnage, the top nine teams are just separated by 2 games.
Today marks the one third mark of the conference season and teams are clearly separating themselves into notable tiers. Let’s break down the action before laying out the NEC standings.

To put it honestly and succinctly, the NEC has been a mess in what could be construed as the 1st inning of the 2015-16 season. As of this post, the 10 programs of the conference have combined to win 10 games in 52 tries against Division I competitors, sinking the league’s standing among the 32 […]
