A dominating performance on the glass and the defensive end earned LIU Brooklyn a convincing 82-69 victory over Wagner at the Steinberg Center on Thursday night.
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.
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.
We have reached the conclusion of the four games in eight days stretch. With more than 20% of the conference already completed, let’s break down the action from the second Saturday of the New Year.
We are halfway through the furious eight game stretch to start the conference season, therefore allow us to dive right into the action for the first Thursday of the New Year!
League play is now coming fast and furious, so let’s dive right into the NEC action from Monday evening!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – NEC conference hoops time! Fans across the league will be treated to four conference showdowns in the next eight days for each program, so playing well to begin 2016 will be critical in helping to shape the final standings come March.
With the non-conference portion of the season nearly over, now is a great time to evaluate the NEC and see where each team stands. 10-12 games isn’t the best sample set to go on, but it’s far better than evaluating just a few games, like we did for Version 1.
