UPDATE 2:15pm ET Northeast Conference Commissioner Noreen Morris came out with a statement on Monmouth and Quinnipiac departing the league. “This morning, I was informed by the presidents of Monmouth University and Quinnipiac University of their decision to withdraw from the Northeast Conference as of June 30, 2013,” Morris said in a statement. “We are […]
With most teams having played at least one quarter of their schedule (crazy, huh?), I felt this was a perfect time to give you ten players that have really surprised and/or impressed me this season. In the first part, John and I list our top five surprises of the NEC thus far, who we feel […]
