It started after the final horn sounded at LIU Brooklyn following Sunday’s second NEC men’s hoops semifinal.
LIU fan, and a candidate for the 2012 Overtime! NEC Tournament Sixth Man award, NellyNels was one of the first Tweet his mind on the NEC title tilt.
Earlier in the week, he tweeted…
@ NellyNel14 – It’s odd yet amazing similarity btwn RMU & LIU of this yr & last. Both r same seeds, almost same NEC W-L, almost same rd 2 finals @necbbt
@NellyNel14 – All we need is the same result but w/ no OT. My heart won’t be able to take that kind of drama 2 yrs str8. Yesterday was enough! @necbbt
What started as buzz by a few hardcore NEC fans on Sunday has escalated to a fever pitch as the tip-off of Wednesday night’s title bout draws closer.
@hey_M0lly shared her emotions via the social network on Tuesday, Championship Eve when she tweeted… “I’m so anxious for the game tomorrow”
Now, everyone seems to be chiming in about the Big Game in Brooklyn…
