It’s that time of the year again. I’ve begun the process of researching each NEC program in order to write all 10 team previews for the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook. Last week I spoke with Saint Francis University coach Rob Krimmel. We discussed his 2016-17 roster, their prospects heading into next season, and the unfortunate 6-game slide that ruined […]
The first round of the NEC tournament was exciting as promised, so let’s break down the action! LIU Brooklyn 84, Sacred Heart 76 After a wonderful first half consisting of timely shooting and fantastic bench play from Iverson Fleming, LIU Brooklyn was able to hold off a Cane Broome surge and a raucous crowd to […]

With half of the season in the books, now is the perfect time to announce out my NEC midseason all-conference teams. Figuring out the NEC top 15 wasn’t an easy task, especially given the youth the league possesses, yet I’m confident this group of young men have been worthy of these honors.
