From the text above, it’s apparent that Jon Rothstein was blowing up Twitter with tons of #NEChoops talk last night.  Rothstein, a CBS Sports reporter, took in the Robert Morris-Wagner game from press row at the Spiro Center.  He caught up with Wagner head coach Danny Hurley afterwards and shared some of the conversation through Twitter…

@JonRothstein – @DHurley on Robert Morris “It’s a hard game to prepare for. What they did out of conference was just as impressive as what we did.”

@JonRothstein – @DHurley15 on keeping Wagner sharp “We’re learning 2 deal with when people play us it’s a big game. We have a little bit of a target now.”

@JonRothstein – @DHurley on Velton Jones “He’s a shotmaker and the heart of their team. Kenny Ortiz did a great job guarding him.”

@JonRothstein – @DHurley15 on the win “It was essential for us to get off to a good start. Our defensive start was great.”

 

Again, Let’s Hear it for New York!

@NECsports – Good times for our #NYChoops fans. @LIUBasketball, @SFCTerriers & @WagnerAthletics are now 24-1 against the other 8 teams in the NEC #NECMBB
