that would have been a great win for monmouth. that was a real heartbreaker, but they should do well in conference. that would have been a nice quality win though, and if they do make the ncaa tournament, it could have even gotten them a slightly better seed and reduced the chances of them having to go up against a top ten team in the first round.
NEC will be looking at a 15 seed or worse no matter what.
However, Monmouth has to be the favorite in this conference. I'm not even that surprised with the result of tonights game considering it was a classic "sandwich" and Monmouth has a very talented starting 5.
