Monday Night’s #NECWBB Battle Between Sacred Heart and Robert Morris Airs Live on ESPN3

They’re both in the top half of the #NECWBB standings and they’ll face one another Monday night on ESPN3.

League leader Robert Morris (12-2) and fourth-place Sacred Heart (8-5) will square off in the #NECWBB “Wildcard” Game on ESPN3.

The Northeast Conference unveiled the matchup on Wednesday, February 18.

The game carries numerous postseason implications.

While defending NEC champion Robert Morris has already locked up and NEC Tournament berth and clinched a quarterfinal home game, the Colonials still have hopes of securing a regular season conference crown and the home-court advantage that comes with it.

The 2015 NEC Tournament, the winner of which will receive the conference automatic NCAA Championship bid, will follow an eight-team format with all games being played at the home sites of the higher-seeded teams.

Sacred Heart is on the cusp of clinching a postseason berth for the 17th year in a row and sits in the “driver’s seat” when it comes to earning a quarterfinal round home game.

The 2014-15 NEC regular season schedule ends on Monday, March 2. The 2015 NEC Tournament begins with quarterfinal play at campus sites on Sunday, March 8.
