Bob Ryan’s college basketball tour of New England

Visiting all 21 Division I schools in one season

The NCAA Tournament is in Boston for the fourth time since 1999, and each time it’s held here, the participants go away raving about the city and the venue. For three days, at least, Boston is a college basketball town.

But nothing happens in a vacuum. College basketball has been happening all around us for months in five conferences - the Ivy League, the Atlantic Coast Conference, the America East, the Northeast Conference, and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference - and with that in mind, it occurred to me that it might be a fun idea to get a little taste of what it’s like at each of the 21 Division 1 college basketball schools in New England.
