The wait is over!!! We have arrived.
Today, the 2015-16 college basketball season begins and over the course of the next four days, all ten NEC men’s basketball teams will tip off their seasons and six teams will play twice in this span.
The big night obviously will be opening day/night on Friday in which NEC teams will be involved in seven games of the 132 games on the Division I schedule.
