As all of the NEC teams are entering the last few weeks of conference play and jockeying for position in the NEC Tournament, it got me thinking about all the players I’ve seen who never represented the conference in the ‘Big Dance.’ So, what if we were able to give all those players one last […]
As I spent time watching NEC basketball over the past week, I wondered who the most invaluable players throughout the league were.
After a home loss to NJIT (currently 9-18) on Dec. 28, Stony Brook stood 4-8 and apparently needing at least a season of transition after last year’s run to the America East title, graduating a strong senior class including all-time great Jameel Warney, and seeing the coach the built them basically from scratch (Steve Pikiell) […]

Harvard ended Yale’s 22-game, two-year long home winning streak in impressive fashion, 75-67, before a sellout crowd that was into the game from the opening tip. The Crimson (14-7, 6-2, […]
St. John’s avenged last month’s dismal loss at Seton Hall with an energizing 78-70 victory over the Pirates Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.
King Rice is a member of the century club, and Monmouth moved one step closer to a second straight MAAC regular-season title with a 62-58 win over Manhattan Friday night at Draddy Gymnasium in the Bronx.
