March Is Coming and the #NEC18 Men’s Bracket Is Set

Wagner clinched the top seed more than one week ago and the rest of the pieces fell into place as the #NECMBB regular season wound down.

Defending champion Mount St. Mary’s snatched the No. 2 seed with No. 3 Saint Francis U and No. 4 LIU Brooklyn joining the Mount as quarterfinal game hosts.

The tournament tips off on February 28 with all four quarters set for 7:00 pm ET. The semifinal round will unfold on March 3 with the #NECMBB Championship Game happening on March 6 on ESPN2.  All games will be played at the home sites of the higher seeds.

Defying Preseason Predictions, CCSU and RMU Clash for the Nation to See on ESPN3

They were the last two teams picked in the preseason coaches’ poll, but midway through the #NECFB schedule and they are both in title contention.

In fact, Central Connecticut is in a three-way tie for first place. The Blue Devils (2-1), who have defeated two of the top-three teams from that aforementioned preseason poll, welcome Robert Morris (1-2) to Arute Field for the “NECFB on ESPN3” Game of the Week on October 31. The game will kick off at 12:00 pm ET.

Both teams feature second-year head coaches – CCSU (Pete Rossomando), Robert Morris (John Banaszak).

RMU captured last year’s meeting in Moon, scoring 18 unanswered points to pull out a 27-24 victory.

Dave Popkin will be on the call Saturday along with NFL coaching veteran Kevin Gilbride. John Cabral will man the sidelines.
