There’s a new team atop the Power Poll this week. St. John’s has officially claimed the top spot. Continue reading “NYC Area Power Poll: Feb. 5”
The writers have spoken and Manhattan is still No. 1. Despite an impressive week from St. John’s that included two Big East victories the Jaspers stayed atop the poll by a single point. The full results are below.
Well, it wasn’t a great week to be from the New York City area, except for Seton Hall at Georgetown. The results weren’t particularly impressive and thus Manhattan stays No. 1 mostly through poll momentum. The Jaspers were there last week, but it’s not well earned. If George Beamon comes back soon though, watch out!
We’re obviously not the only publication that does Power Rankings of the New York City area basketball teams (though I do like to think we have the best and most comprehensive poll). There are a bunch of alternatives out there though for the discerning fan trying to figure out where their school fits into the metropolitan region’s pecking order.
A lot of things happened on the way to conference (and non-conference) play and for the first time in a long time St. John’s is not No. 1 in our Power Poll. That honor belongs to the Manhattan Jaspers, who might just be the best team in New York City. Continue reading “NYC Area Power Poll – Jan. 8”
Welcome to the new year! To wet your whistle for all the basketball to come in 2014 we’re running our first Power Poll. There’s been a bit of a shakeup, but even if St. John’s can’t win at Xavier the Red Storm still appear to be the team to beat in New York City. Continue reading “NYC Area Power Poll – Jan. 1”
Another week, another Power Poll. But what a week it was. A number of teams in the area made some strong moves. Also, as the injuries mount for Seton Hall – even if the news is good – the Pirates have dropped further down the rankings. Continue reading “New York Area Power Poll – Week 7”
Thanks to St. John’s convincing victory over Fordham at Madison Square Garden, and a lack of relative competition lately, the Red Storm are now unanimously atop the Big Apple Buckets New York Area Power Poll. Steve Lavin’s team looks like the class of the city and has a huge game coming up on Sunday against Syracuse at MSG. Continue reading “St. John’s Is King of New York Area Power Poll”
A number of head-to-head match ups this week impacted the poll in a myriad of ways. For one, Fairleigh Dickinson – after beating both Rutgers and Seton Hall – makes its first appearance of the season in the poll. Also, the only relatively unscathed New Jersey team – Princeton (5-1) – is climbing up the ranks. Back in New York City the St. John’s Red Storm are tightening their grip on first place, but I think that says more about the teams below them than it does about Steve Lavin’s crew. Continue reading “New York Area Power Poll – Dec. 4”
Before we get into the Power Poll, let’s start with this fact. There was no requirement that Rutgers had to be dropped off of everyone’s ballot because the Scarlet Knights lost to Fairleigh Dickinson. The voters’ only charge is to pick the teams that are playing the best given their recent body of work. Of course, losing to FDU might hurt those qualifications as well.
