It seems like this winter just doesn’t want to go away as the Northeast once again gets pounded with another major snow storm. This time, the storm has caused havoc to tonight’s NEC men’s basketball schedule.
First of all, tonight’s LIU Brooklyn-Sacred Heart game has been postponed. The game will now be made up on Tuesday, February 25th at 7pm.
So what does this mean for LIU Brooklyn?
It means LIU is now currently on their longest break between games since the start of the conference season as they will go eight days between games. LIU’s next game is now on Sunday, February 16 at 4pm at the Barclays Center for the Battle of Brooklyn game against St. Francis Brooklyn.
This postponement changes LIU’s final six game schedule in a couple of ways. Now their game on Sunday becomes their final game of a now three-game homestand before then going on the road for what is now a three-game road trip instead of just a two-game trip to play the Pennsylvania schools next week. The postponed Sacred Heart game will be the third and final game of the road trip as well their final road game of the regular season.
Also with moving the Sacred Heart game to Tuesday, February 25, LIU Brooklyn will now have to play their last three regular season games in a five day span. As we all know, LIU is now in a fight for the eighth-seed as they currently sit in ninth place one game behind current eighth-place holder Central Connecticut State.
As for the rest of tonight’s NEC men’s basketball schedule, all but the Robert Morris-Saint Francis (PA) game has been postponed. The CCSU-St. Francis Brooklyn game has been postponed to Tuesday, Februaury 18 at 7pm. The Wagner-FDU game has been postponed to Monday, February 24 at 7pm. Finally, the Bryant-Mount St. Mary’s game has been postponed with the makeup date yet to be determined. RMU-SFU game is still scheduled to be played tonight at 7pm.
