Oh and BTW say anything negative about the D3Hoop.com polls and you will experience the wrath of Coleman and McHugh!

Alum is feisty, I like that!  I'd like to think if Carlos Gonzalez doesn't take a sabbatical this year, Eastern is in the playoffs.  Maybe not number 1 like they were predicted preseason, but definitely top 3 I'd believe.

Happy for Western.  Disappointed that the conference moved the semifinals from 1 site over 2 days to campus sites, as Friday is in between regular season and postseason games in the state.  Yes, when the day comes I'll probably actually be happy there aren't 2 games up in Danbury I could go so I can get a night off after working 6 straight days, and our state game is up at Danbury High school a couple days later, but at the present time I wish I had that opportunity to attend the 2 games.  Oh well *shrug*

I wish we could get back to the 2010-2012 Brooks, Robinson, Redding, Nedwick, Kohn, and Robitiale days when BOTH Eastern & Western were fighting for the title.  When they were both at the top of the conference, that was one of the better rivalries in the conference and hell include Akinrola and company @ RIC and Martin/D'Amours at Keene and whenever those 4 teams matched up, it was not only must watch in the conference, it was must watch in the region.   Of all the games I attended at Western, the Robinson to Brooks game winner against Eastern (I believe the last Western win over Eastern before this season) was probably the best game I ever attended when I was at school...and that includes the women's team who made 3 straight NCAA tournaments.  And yes, if Brooks missed the layup, or Robinson throws a bad pass, or Robiltaile actually makes a free throw that game and they avoid overtime entirely, and Eastern ended up winning I'd probably still have that number 1, that's how exciting that game was.  Hopefully in 2021 the Western/Eastern rivalry can go back to where it was a decade prior!!

Spot on 7,  Totally agree!  I was a big fan of Coach Campbell/Daquan Brooks, (he was a truly exceptional player), and the Eastern/Western rivalry was huge!! That game which I attended at the O'Neill center was thrilling!!
 
Carlos brought not only his scoring and defense (steals etc), but a lot of intangibles to the team!  In 2018/19 the points for/game vs points against/game differential was 10 vs 2 this year, and Carlos contributed close to 17 ppg vs current point guard's 7ppg!  Eastern also did not execute their offence as efficiently without Gonzales which was the most obvious weakness and Muckle, Colligan, and Thomas thus had more difficulty scoring. ECSU's defense was below par due loss of Carlos, (many times assigned to opposition's top scorer), and a couple of other bench/starting players.

Good Luck to the Colonials in the LEC and NCAAs tournament!

D3hoops seems to have all the data, re the polls, but fail to post it on the web site, so who is really confused! 

We were assuming you could really read this. :)
It there was something worth reading!

I don't know why *I* would be jealous of Eastern's success, though. You should really consider your words before you put them into my mouth. I'm not generally a big fan of that.
Pat, I am sorry I hurt your feeling  :'( ;D

Allstar,  Congrats to Keene on their victory last night, they deserve to be in the LEC tournament as they were the better team!  Keene always seems to play better in the post season so Good Luck going forward!

Western big win at RIC And clinches The regular season title and the # 1 seed throughout the LEC Tourney!!! Congrats WESTCONN!! Oh by the way, I believe Eastern was eliminated from the LEC tourney tonight.
Yeah they were!  Its about time WCSU won an LEC reg season, as they have been a mediocre team for a long time!

Did Eastern even have a men’s basketball team prior to 8 years ago???
You seem to be someone who gets very confused with the facts,(stats)!  Try to focus now, I have detailed the stats below ;)

ECSU mens basketball 10 yr record:
2017-18 (26-4, 13-1 LEC)
2016-17 (21-9, 11-3 LEC)
2015-16 (18-9, 11-3 LEC)

2010-11 (22-10, 10-4 LEC)
2009-10 (20-10, 9-5 LEC)
BTW do some research and find out how many LEC championships and NCAA tournaments Eastern has won/participated in the last 10 years
Western got lucky this year!  We will see how far they go ;D

2010-11 (22-6, 11-3 LEC)
2009-10 (19-7, 9-5 LEC)
as I said mediocre for at least 7 yrs! assuming you can read this!

Ha! I see how it works with you. So you can insult me on this board about being able to read and  question my maturity over my sour grape comment. I  Can read it just fine homer,  but maybe you should learn how to count and not be so uptight. I see nine seasons here, not 10 as you mention. So did they have a basketball program prior to 9 years ago??? Were they relevant??? Since you seem to like to Throw out numbers/stats from the past, I know Western did okay under Bob Campbell who only won 589 games in 30 years and went to the NCAA tournament 12 times, 5 LEC championships and had 12 seasons with 20 plus wins. But this is all old news just like your Eastern squad over the last 9 years. It’s the past. You seem to be very bitter that Eastern had a “mediocre year” and that Western won the the regular season LEC championship after I simply questioned the LEC preseason coaches poll. Anyway, I look forward to seeing if Western can win the LEC tourney and the auto bid into the NCAA tourney next week.

More petty comments on this board from Coleman and whoever "wcsu91" is. It seem both have been jealous of the Warriors success for a long time! At least I try to document my comments with stats!
D3hoops seems to have all the data, re the polls, but fail to post it on the web site, so who is really confused! 
Lastly, I have respected  7express, the Colonials, and Bob Campbell over the years, and been critical of ECSU when they have underperformed, but it seems now we have an immature poster who likes to take cheap shots at a historically successful basketball team because they had an off season this year for legitimate reasons, while Western has won one LEC reg season for the first time in many years, and yes we will be watching Western very closely over the coming weeks. ;D

Re ECSU the coaches likely had no idea Carlos Gonzalez was taking a red shirt year!  His loss was huge this year with the team never the same as in the 2018-19 season!  It is the same in the D3hoops pre-season polls which look almost identical to the previous years final poll.  Coaches do not have a crystal ball on recruits, (except perhaps with NESCAC schools which do more publicization of their nationally recruited incoming freshman players), nor can they predict injuries to impact players.  Therefore, take pre-season polls with a grain of salt!

Your assertion about the D3hoops.com Preseason poll is not accurate. We get a LOT of information from schools and programs about who is back, who isn't back, who they brought in via recruits, etc. If a school doesn't give us information that is accurate, we can't help that. However, there are many times we get information that changes in the two weeks leading up to the season.

I'm not saying the preseason ballot is going to be perfect by any stretch, but saying it is nearly identical to the final poll the season before isn't accurate. Look at this season's (https://www.d3hoops.com/top25/men/2019-20/preseason) and tell me how many teams you see with "--" next to their names indicating they weren't even ranked in the final poll last season. Eight teams in total including WashU which was 7th in the preseason. Voters do their homework. Again, doesn't make it perfect, but it certainly isn't just slapped together to look like the final poll from the previous March.

Now, coaches' polls depends on the conference. There does tend to be some "politics" involved, but I also know some conferences that vote so early that rosters aren't even finalized and released online. They do tend to be a little more off.

Thank you for insight Dave! I didn’t think it was as simple as stated by some other posts, maybe sour grapes🤣? Anyway, a Western win combined with a Dartmouth loss gives Western the Number 1 seed for the LEC Tourney and home court advantage where they are 8-0 in conference play this year and
11-1 overall! Should be fun to see how it all plays out!!

wscu91, It is obvious you are a novice in LEC basketball.  Your "sour grapes" comment shows your immaturity!  I will match Eastern's BB record vs Western's over the last 10 years any day!  If WCSU wins the LEC, which is not a certainty, we will see how far they go in the NCAA tournament!
And re Dave McHugh comments about the D3hoops poll, if you have so much info on the team recruits etc etc, especially re the LEC, you should publish this knowledge on the D3Hoops web site!!  It might be interesting for everybody to see!

Makes you wonder what the LEC coaches were thinking with this pre season poll as it is way off. Keane and ECSU are currently 6/7 respectively. Granted I know injuries happen but this is way off:

2019-20 LEC Men's Basketball Preseason Coaches' Poll

Pl.   Team   Points   FPV
1.   Eastern Connecticut    58   4
2.   Keene State   57   4
3.   UMass Dartmouth   49   
4.   Rhode Island College   38   
5.   Western Connecticut   37   
6.   Plymouth State   35   
7.   UMass Boston   27   
8.   Southern Maine   15   
9.   Castleton   8

ECSU is most likely not going to make the LEC tournament, probably for the first time in a decade, based on the way they are currently playing, ie defense, point guard play and overall execution.  Last night game in Dartmouth MA was a joke as one referee was a homer and called multiple Ashworth 3 point no fouls on Jake Colligan and allowed the final UMD 3 pointer to count after the clock expired. IMHO this effected Jake's game as he was frustrated and knew if he incurred a T he would be benched.   This ref was a joke and should never be allowed to oversee a basketball game. 
On the positive side UMD looks very good this year with Ashworth and Asor, and additionally, the UMD play by play guy was excellent/objective, (he could not believe some of the calls and the last shot)!  The HD video of the game was superb as well.   
Eastern, UMD, UMB, and WCSU have really developed excellent basketball game productions!
BTW Shout out to Senior Jake McCarthy who had one of the best games of his career, 18 pts, 12 rebounds (if I remember correctly)!  He looks to be the teams late late bloomer :)

Congratulations to Senior Jake Colligan on attaining the 1000 point level at ECSU (c 1100 career incl Keene St). Junior Cory Muckle has about 70 points to go before reaching 1000 points. Jake has been a workhorse for Eastern this year and has become the team leader. ECSU is lucky he transferred from KSC, as he is a great defensive player as well as their #1 scoring threat!

It looks like the Little East Conference is wide open this year, no one team dominating and with home court advantage looking to be huge.  Hoping Eastern gets into the LEC tourney and gels to make a respectable run for the Championship! Will be tough to do at RIC, UMB or WCSU but doable if they play some good defence!!

Glad to see both of you guys on here...I hope both of you are doing well!
Thanks Allstar  Your charts are always appreciated! 
Huge disappointment this year w/o Carlos!!  Team defense is bad and play inconsistent!  Guess we will wait until next year!

7express....and ridiculous loss by ECSU to USM when two top scorers on the bench for technicals committed in previous game, and when the coach committed the same in Maine :o
This is a lost season for Eastern if they don't play their best players and do not improve a poor defense!!
