Unamious Pick As Team To Beat
As the North Atlantic Conference basketball season begins, coaches around the league are in agreement on at least one thing - the Husson men's team is the team to beat.
In the annual preseason coaches poll, the Eagles received all eight first place votes.
The NAC has a new look with SUNY-Canton and UMaine Presque Isle coming into the conference while teams like Castleston and NEC have left the league.
Six teams will ultimately make the postseason and the winner gets the NCAA automatic bid.
Coach Warren Caruso will need to replace the points of Raheem Anderson and do return players such as Justin Martin, the NAC Defensive Player of the Year.
