The NBA Draft is tonight! I took a brief look at the NBA Draft from 2000-09 on my sports analysis Tumblr. I did a quick logistic regression and found that early draft picks are much more valuable. (Compare this to the MLB draft where there’s a much more linear fit.) I also listed the Top […]
When the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference basketball championships return to Albany in 2015, they might not be played on the same floor Siena uses throughout the season at the Times Union Center.

Seven years ago, Greg Herenda had a difficult career decision to make. He was offered the associate head coaching position by Bill Herrion, who had been recently hired by New Hampshire to revive their program.

It appears the Latina can cross that goal off the to-do list. A source has indicated that Eyimofe “Mofe” Edukugho, a 6’6″ power forward who last played […]
Depth was a major issue for Howie Dickenman’s Central Connecticut (CCSU) Blue Devils in his 17th year at the helm. Injuries, unexpected defections, and ineffectiveness severely depleted Dickenman’s in-season rotation to seven regulars, and that was on a good day. Kyle Vinales, Matthew Hunter, and Malcolm McMillan were forced to play more than 36 minutes per […]
On one screen LIU Brooklyn is surviving a Telvon Falzon jumper to edge out Sacred Heart.
