It all turned for Siena’s Brett Bisping in his first start of the season for head coach Jimmy Patsos.
Conference play started in earnest for the rest of New York City’s teams this week and it shows in these weekly awards. Picking a Player and Rookie of the Week was nearly impossible. These are our best guesses. Let us know if you disagree in the comments.
The MAAC regular season seems to be flying by. Things are playing out quite close to expectations. There’s a troika leading the way at 5-1 and then some interesting teams chasing (and occasionally challenging) the favorites. Can in-conference efficiency margins tell us anything about these teams? Let’s take a look.
Just three days after completing a sweep of two of the MAAC’s top teams in Iona and Manhattan, the Quinnipiac Bobcats (4-2) fell to the St. Peter’s Peacocks (2-4) 74-67 at the Yanitelli Center in Jersey City, NJ. Senior Chris Burke tied a career high with 18 points for St. Peter’s to lead all scorers […]
For 45 minutes the script didn’t change. Mike Alvarado got the ball and he attacked the basket. As aggressively as possible. And eventually that, along with a little help from a fearless freshman, was enough for Manhattan to pull out an 86-79 overtime victory over Marist on Sunday afternoon at Draddy Gymnasium.
You thought you had everything figured out after the first day of NEC play, right? Oh, you didn’t? Well that’s good because I’m not sure if anyone knows what’s going on. There were a bunch of interesting (and close!) games on Saturday. But let’s start with the game of the day and another big performance.
The Marist Red Foxes appear to have found their groove as they hit conference play full time in January.
For a team that has endured a four game winning streak followed by a four game losing streak, the reward of a school-record 118 point performance seemed to be a great way to break out of that slump in 2014.
In a battle for first place in the MAAC, the Quinnipiac Bobcats sent a statement to the rest of the league by handing the Manhattan Jaspers their first road loss of the year with an 81-76 victory Thursday at the TD Bank Sports Center.
In order to become champions a team must defeat those that have climbed the mountain before them. St. Francis Brooklyn started its ascent up the NEC standings with an impressive 78-64 victory over LIU Brooklyn at the Pope Athletic Center in Brooklyn Heights on Thursday.
