LIU came into the play-in game as one of the nation’s highest scoring teams, but the Blackbirds were disrupted by the length of James Madison in a frustrating 68-55 loss in the First Four on Wednesday night in Dayton, Ohio.
Tonight in Dayton the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds will look to do something they’ve never done in the history of the men’s basketball program, win a game in the NCAA tournament. They’ve come pretty close before, back in 1984 the Blackbirds lost to Jim Calhoun’s Northeastern team by just three point in the “preliminary” round.
We’ve been away for a little while as all the craziness occurred, but we’re back with a bang as Ryan Restivo brings an extended length edition of The Mid-Major Podcast from Big Apple Buckets. In it he brings on some special guests to analyze the Siena and Marist coaching situations. What are they going to […]
Less than one year ago, John Calipari and his Kentucky Wildcats were hoisting up the NCAA championship trophy as the best team in all of the land.

(If you saw my tweet…) But I think Nelson Castillo raises a good point in his post here about Joe Lunardi’s preview video for LIU Brooklyn. It doesn’t bother me that much that RMU’s game is mentioned – ESPN has a game […]
I sat down with Glenn Logan of A Sea With Blue to ask a few questions about John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats, who found themselves on the outside looking in for the NCAA tournament. Ken Pomeroy has them as the fifth best team to miss out on the Big Dance. As a result, Robert Morris will […]
The grades are in for this season’s NIT brackets. I used the Paymon scoring that the Bracket Project uses to score NCAA bracket projections. The NIT ones were quite rough. Part of this is because every person had both Air Force and Arkansas in their field and the committee decided to go with other teams. […]
The CBI and CIT fields are out. When I first look at the College Basketball Invitational bracket my first question is, “Huh?” I’m not quite sure how some of these match ups made sense in the organizers’ heads. Also, it appears at least one team that thought they’d get to play in the CBI – […]
