NEC Midseason Awards and All-Conference Teams

With 13-15 games in the books for each NEC squad, it’s time to break out an unofficial awards post!

Humility and Devotion Continues to Drive Jalen Cannon to Greatness

Jalen Cannon was well on his way to earning his first ever trip to the Northeast Conference semifinals. After chasing down yet another Mount St. Mary’s miss near the baseline, Gregory Graves undercut Cannon, sending the 6’5” forward sprawling to the floor. A referee’s whistle blew, and just like that the St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers were in the bonus with more than 10 minutes remaining in the second half.

Three Thoughts: St. Francis Brooklyn 63, Bryant 47 (The Amdy Fall Show)

As good as we are with advanced statistics, we haven’t quite gotten to shots adjusted or changed yet (it’s surely coming soon). The stat sheet told part of the story Monday afternoon, as Amdy Fall finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds, and four blocks as St. Francis Brooklyn suffocated Bryant 63-47 to move to 2-0 in the NEC.

Three Thoughts: St. Francis Brooklyn 73, Sacred Heart 71

Leadership bringing intangibles to the party, but just what are intangibles? And what exactly is leadership?

Alas, even KenPom can’t help us there, but St. Francis Brooklyn gave us a pretty good idea Saturday afternoon in its NEC opener. The Terriers, picked to win the NEC for the first time (they’ve never won, either, obviously), found themselves down 18 late in the first half at upstart Sacred Heart, who was looking to get the last vestiges of a 2-14 NEC (and 5-26 overall) campaign out of their mouths.

Three Thoughts: Rutgers 76, St. Francis Brooklyn 73

St. Francis Brooklyn led numerous times at the RAC against Big Ten opponent Rutgers in a back-and-forth show in the second half. The Terriers ended up losing 76-73 in the final seconds though after a missed three point shot by Brent Jones, when St. Francis was only down by two. St. Francis is now 0-3 after close losses to Army and Rutgers and a defeat versus Georgetown. Continue reading “Three Thoughts: Rutgers 76, St. Francis Brooklyn 73”
