#NECWBB:  We assume she’ll be watching when Sal Buscaglia joins Dave Popkin and Tim Capstraw live from the Barclay’s Center on Tuesday. You can view the festivities for free via NECfrontrow.com beginning at 11:00 am.

 

The Fact…

#NECMBB:  There have been six back-to-back NEC Tournament winners.  Robert Morris has turned the trick three times (1982-83, 1989-90 and 2009-10), along with Marist (1986-87), Rider (1993-94) and most-recently LIU Brooklyn (2011-12).  No program has ever won three in a row, but Jacki Perri’s Blackbirds can change that this season.
