First Place at Stake During #NECMBB Wildcard Game on CBS Sports Network


The Northeast Conference has one more national television window during the regular season and will use it to showcase the league’s best.

Mount St. Mary’s (13-3) and LIU Brooklyn (11-5), the top-two teams in the conference standings, will clash in Knott Arena on Thursday, February 23 and CBS Sports Network will carry the action live.

A win for Mount means that Jamion Christian’s squad will own the No. 1 seed in the upcoming NEC Tournament.

If the Blackbirds prevail, however, the Mount will have to wait at least two more days to secure the spot. LIU could play its way into first with two wins coupled with two losses by the Mount.

Mount St. Mary’s squeaked out a 67-65 win in the regular season’s first meeting between these two sides on December 29 in Downtown Brooklyn. After LIU forward Nura Zanna tied the game, 65-65, with 00:04 remaining, the Mount’s Chris Wray drained a game-winning layup at the buzzer.

Dave Popkin (play-by-play), Coach Joe DeSantis (color) and Paul Dottino (sideline) will have the call from Emmitsburg on Thursday evening. Tipoff is 7:00 pm ET.
