The NEC held it’s awesome #NECinNY media day yesterday. The conference brings in coaches, players, alumni, bloggers, media members, announcers, analysts and whatever else you can think of to host a really cool event.
Most notably, NEC media day means the official preseason coaches poll and all-NEC team’s are released. Like I said the other day, I could eat this stuff up for weeks. I also think it’s pretty cool to get the coaches perspective on how they see the league shaping up.
Just a reminder: Central Connecticut State was picked to finish second in last year’s preseason poll. Central Connecticut State finished with five wins on the season. Take it with a grain of salt.
Without further ado, your official 2015 preseason standings:
Mount St. Mary’s (6)
Robert Morris (3)
St. Francis Brooklyn
St. Francis PA
Central Connecticut State
And your preseason all-NEC team:
G Byron Ashe – Mount St. Mary’s
G Cane Broome – Sacred Heart
G Rodney Pryor – Robert Morris
F Gregory Graves – Mount St. Mary’s
F Dan Garvin – Bryant
The defending champs second? Byron Ashe? Sacred Heart at seven? Our official NEC predictions piece isn’t scheduled until next Thursday, but feel free to chime in with thoughts…
