As Kris Jenkins’s three-pointer swished through the nets in Houston another season of college basketball came to brilliant close.
The end of the 2015-16 season brings another great year of basketball to a close for Big Apple Buckets. And with it comes many changes, both to the teams we cover and this site.
First some small site news. We’re going to be officially changing the name of the site to match the URL. Everyone calls us NYC Buckets anyways, so that’s what we’ll be going with moving forward. Expect a new banner soon.
Second, if you’re interested in writing for the site now is a great time to reach out. I have more free time to actually speak with writers, figure out their interests and start planning for the next season.
The team covered 190 games this season, mostly due to the indefatiguable Ray Curren. He covered at least 102 games for us, though the count may be even more.
We’ll have more about the site as the offseason goes on, but you should expect more content to start coming in soon as the offseason continues. Though the pace won’t be nearly as furious as the past six months.
But we will need to cover a lot of changes in the area. There are head coaching changes at Columbia, Stony Brook, Rutgers and NJIT (with quite a bit of linking between them), as well as at other NEC and Ivy League schools. There are transfers leaving the NYC area and surely some that will be coming in.
There’s also some time to take a step back and look at what we can learn from the season we’ve just seen. Or the ones before it. I hope I’ll be able to provide some answers to some statistical questions I’ve been looking at sometime this summer.
I hope you enjoyed the games and our coverage this season.
