With New York City hosting -- for the first time -- two major conference tournaments simulataneously, I wanted to get as much of the experience as I could. And document it. Here's how I spent Thursday and Friday, crisscrossing between Manhattan and Brooklyn -- and back again a few times.
The Blackbirds are flying to the NCAA tournament for the third straight year, and that's a record. A record for both the program and the Northeast Conference. Never before had LIU Brooklyn won three straight conference tournament titles, and never before had the NEC seen its league won in back-to-back-to-back years by the same program.
