There’s just something about playing out West that gets the Wagner Seahawks going. Bashir Mason’s team played stifling defense once again and found enough offense to defeat Southern Methodist 63-53 in the semifinals of the Cable Car Classic on Friday night.
Jamal Coombs-McDaniel isn’t going to be the guy who saves Hofstra’s season. Pride fans received another dose of sobering news this morning when it was announced that the UConn transfer will miss the entire season due to a knee injury.
While both MAAC teams in action lost last night, the results had a bit of a different feel. Iona lost to La Salle 88-74, but Gaels fans are now excited by the excellent debut of David Laury. Rider struggled at Princeton, leaving the Broncs with even more questions.
The non-conference season is nearing to an end, but before NEC basketball starts up on January 3rd, Monmouth fans will be treated to the rare home appearance by a Big East team. Monmouth will host Villanova at the MAC this Saturday night at 7 PM. It’s one of the more anticipated NEC games of the […]
Saturday offers New York City college basketball fans a great opportunity once again to watch threes games in a row at the Barclays Center. Hofstra, Manhattan and LIU Brooklyn will all be in action.

Note: I apparently drew the short straw; therefore I’ve been selected to piece together an argument for why LIU Brooklyn will not win the NEC crown this season without Julian Boyd. Actually to be fair, John gave me a choice between pro and con.
After defeating Liberty at home on Tuesday night Iona has a quick turnaround for its game against La Salle on Thursday. The Gaels will be traveling to Philadelphia to take on the Explorers who are 6-2. The losses are to Central Connecticut and Bucknell. This will be a tricky one for Iona because of the […]
The wheels of conference realignment continued to turn throughout college basketball, yet the Northeast Conference (NEC) had come out relatively unscathed until recently. Last week, the MAAC Council of Presidents and Commissioner Rich Ensor swiftly approved NEC programs Quinnipiac and Monmouth as the newest full-time members of the MAAC.
For Siena, a 2-9 start to the season has not been the way fans expected season three under head coach Mitch Buonaguro to go. However, with two losses decided by one point, the turnaround in Albany will likely come in the form of minor tweaks.
