With nearly a month of the 2016-17 season in the books, some interesting trends – both positive and negative – have developed for some NEC programs. I’m here to look at the positive developments and make an educated determination if they’ll continue for the duration of the season or if this is nothing more than […]
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.
We’re back! Ryan Peters joins me for the season opening episode of NEC Fast Break.
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.
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.
Throughout the offseason, I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter regarding several unknown players within the NEC. Because there’s plenty of opportunity given the graduations and transfers, coaches are desperate to prop up their guys in the preseason to see if they’ll rise to the challenge. Sometimes they will, sometimes they won’t.
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.
The Saint Francis Red Flash have had a very respectable run under Rob Krimmel. After stumbling to a 5-24 record in his inaugural season, even after star forward Scott Eatherton abruptly transferred in the offseason prior, Krimmel has quietly built the program into a solid NEC contender by compiling 27 conference victories during the past three seasons.
For the fifth straight year, I traveled to the Barclay’s Center to cover NEC Social Media Day, an event I always enjoy covering. Besides getting to catch up with a majority of the league’s coaches and SIDs, this day also signals that college basketball is right around the corner!
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!
