NJIT basketball is playing a home-and-home with Siena this year. I think they're provisional this year, so it might be another year or two before they're fully Division I.

Those home and home serises are DI Independents (except Siena). I think they are in their "exploratory" or "transitional" year. It takes about 4 seasons to upgrade and qualify for the NCAA tourney, so I don't expect NJIT to join the NEC (or any other conference) until they are full DI eligible.

Moose - how long was the complete SHU upgrade? When did it begin? And they weren't eligable for the NEC tourney in their first year in the conference, right?

From a discussion on NJIT's web site:
they "began reclassifying menís soccer to Division I in 2003, with the rest of our program beginning the transition in 2005. The menís soccer team completed the transition in 2005 and became championship eligible. The womenís soccer team will be championship eligible in 2007. The process for reclassifying an entire athletic program, which can include basketball, is longer, and we began that process in 2005. Our other Highlander teams will complete the reclassification process and become championship eligible starting in the fall of 2009."

Thanks 72 - I knew I read something like that before.

So likely NJIT wouldn't join the NEC (or any conference) for 3 more year - in September 2009.

Maybe by then NJIT could replace CCSU in the NEC, as we joined up with the AE :)

I believe we had to wait 2 years before going full D1 (1997-98 & 1998-99). We then had a 2 year probational time, which we weren't eligible for the conference tournies. I believe that is correct.
