The NEC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships have officially come to a close.
The women’s champion found out its first round fate during Monday night’s nationally-televised Selection Show, which is a bridge from conference tournament time over to the Big Dance that will consume the rest of the month.
In a way to celebrate the crowning of the NEC’s 31st men’s basketball champion and 26th women’s hoops tournament winner, Overtime! has compiled a number of images that were taken by fans and media members and shared over social networking sites namely Twitter.
What better way to tell the story of the 2012 NEC Basketball Tournament than by piecing together photos from the folks who witnessed it all first-hand on the front lines?
After all, it was #YourTourney and all of the action unfolded in #YourHouse.

Also here’s a special shoutout to @RMUcheer and veteran Colonials’ cheerleader @AshMarie_B for making the trek from the Steel City out east to the Tri-State/NY Metro Area to support both RMU’s men’s and women’s hoops teams. Being that the Lady Colonials played a semifinal round game in Connecticut, while the men went to Staten Island for the semis followed by Brooklyn for the title tilt, the RMU cheer squad spent quite a few days in the area. While they certainly did their share of hooting and hollering, they also took some time to enjoys the sites and sounds of the City.
