For years, New York City has been facing a dry spell of good college basketball.
With St. John's finding itself in the basement of the Big East, Fordham winning two games all season and Manhattan not living up to expectations, disappointment has been quite prominent in the Big Apple.
However, things are looking up this season.
Five of the seven New York City schools have changed head coaches, and it seems to be working.
St. John's has has a lot of hype surrounding their program this year, after hiring Steve Lavin and their 10 returning seniors. Long Island University of Brooklyn is 4-0 to start the season, and 13th in the NCAA in scoring. Columbia has been putting up huge numbers, and is led by Ivy superstar Noruwa Agho.
All in all, there is a reason to be excited, no matter who you are rooting for.
