Lots of changes at Marist...and some other Northeast news

Well, today marks the beginning of the Spring Signing Period, and many fans are awaiting the decision of guard Tyreke Evans. The explosive prerimeter player is said to be leaning in the direction of Memphis, and that's who I'd expect him to sign with due to the departure of Derrick Rose. But the school with the most going on in recent days has to be Marist, who will any day be gaining a head coach, but they've already lost two players.

The injury bug, something that the Broncs didn’t have to deal with all season, came up and bit them during the MAAC Tournament, but they got to the final nonetheless.

Canisius

ALBANY, N.Y.- On paper, the matchup between conference co-champion Rider and last-place Canisius looked like an absolute snoozer. The Broncs, in sweeping the Golden Griffins, won the two games in blowout fashion. The second of which was a 102-51 whipping that underscored just how bad Canisius has been all year. But a not so funny thing happened: Canisius didn't fold.

NYC Metro Ranking & Report: Seton Hall Still #1

December 20th, 2007
Well, this is the week in which many teams in the area are either just out of finals, or finishing up. This means that a lot more basketball will be on the docket in the final weeks of 2007. But the question has to be asked: how do we figure out the majority of these teams? Has Seton Hall, with a 7-2 record, done enough to stay at the top of the poll…or is it that no one immediately behind them has played well enough to move up?
