    Lets not forget that with Joe and David on the roster we did win 67 game in 3 seasons and they were true Student/athletes!!!! We should appreciate them for their accomplishments. Our standard has become the NCAAs so they did fall short there but they really had a good run. I wish them the BEST and hope they are not disappointed at the end of next season.

    I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll drive through snowstorms to away games. We'll live and die with each foul call and then won't be able to talk the next day from screaming. We're fanatics, that's just what we do.

    Let's give a thanks to Connor Fields who obviously could have transfered to the ACC the past couple years and has chosen to stay to help lead the team to possible glory.

    Because we needed some good news today. Congrats to women's golf for winning the MAAC championship for the second straight year. I believe Albany now has more MAAC championships this year than Siena. That was for you Bob.

    Antonio Rizzuto - Player of the year Antonio Rizzuto, Northeastern, 6-3, sr.: Solidified his standing as one of the best players to come out of York County with another stellar season. He averaged a YAIAA-best 23.4 points per game, knocking down 61 percent of his shots inside the arc. A two-time GameTimePA first-team all-star, he sank a YAIAA-best 102 3-pointers and knocked down 44 percent of those attempts. He also averaged eight rebounds per contest. Undercut while attempting a layup in the postseason, he played in the final six games of his career with a fractured tailbone. He finished his career with 1,565 points, ranking third on the school's all-time list. Rizzuto has signed to play at the University at Albany.

    A lot of people on this board were pretty happy we were able to pick up Ale Foster because of the grad transfer rule. Some were even saying Brown should even go out and get one or two more. Unfortunately this is the other side of that rule. People came in and poached our program. I find these two transfers out of the program to be very unfortunate I wonder if Joe would have stayed for his final year if they were able to make the dance in one of his first three years. I wouldn't put this on the same level of Logan Aronholt. I find this situation to be worse. Joe is a Local guy, great player, great teammate, leader, tough, all the things you want. I always found Logan to be soft and hide in big moments. I didn't think he was very dependable. I agree with the guys who said this is a bad look for future recruits too. It just lends itself to questions of why and how could this happen. But, for the current incoming guys and guys coming off their redshirt year, its a great opportunity. I was hoping Joe could show them the way before his 4 years was up, hopefully they don't follow his lead now.

    It was a critical error by Benson, overall, and is one of the reasons I am not sold on him being an administrator. Marketing guy...yep. But not sold on the package.

    My very first thought when I saw this tonight was that this is what happens when your AD refuses to fund the team's post season. As a fan, I agree with most that the CIT and the CBI do not thrill me, but, I recall a post by Patch stating that the players wanted another game. If the AD doesn't support the players, why should we expect David and Joe to pass on the opportunity to play at a higher level. My second thought was that Patsos will be rushing to sign a new contract knowing we enter the season with only Campbell & Clark as returning players

    Olddog- 100% agree. We have some INSANE talent coming in...and they better just be ready to go. As a fan, I am hurt by Joe’s departure. I get it...but he won’t be anything more than a 6th-8th man on a Power 5 program. He could have played pro in Europe wherever he played his last year. He was a legacy guy...a local hero. Personally, the NCAA needs to get it’s $iena straight...work with the NBA to get rid of the one and done...and work on themselves to get the Grad Transfer rule abolished. It’s destroying low major and mid-major hoops...and the NCAA is forgetting what makes hoops so great. Wait until the not havin to sit a year rule goes into affect- forget about keeping stud players.

    Hopefully Lulka and Hanks can contribute and we can grab 2 solid bigs. No reason we shouldn't be good the question is how good can we be. It's David & Joe's last shot at the NCAAs, every freshman that has stayed 4years over the last 8 or 9 years has had at least 1 NCAA appearance.

    This post by a certain spaz called 'glen' on their board had me DYIN: Mediocrity? HE is talking about mediocrity? Has this guy been livin under a rock for the past 10 years? 24-9 in back to back years a few years ago, with a 1 loss conference season too boot? 3 championships since Jamar left? 20 win season in like 7 of the last 9? Absolutely PWNING Siena year in, year out not only on the hardwood but every other type of wood or field known to man? Mediocrity? If that's mediocrity, sign me up for that and then some every year. Siena fans have to be some of the least intelligent out there.

    I like following the recruiting stuff but I don't know how much you can tell from it. It's encouraging to see other good school interested in your recruits but it's certainly not a guarantee. The JUCO players seem hard to guage based on recruiting information online. There was practically no information about Gary Johnson when he came to Albany and he ended up starting and playing in two NCAAs. Ditto for Evan Singletary who seemed to come from nowhere (in terms of hype.)

    This is actually the first year I wouldn't really have a problem with the Oneonta game. Considering we just lost everyone but the mascot to graduation or transfer and we're going to have a bunch of new starters. If there were ever a time to play this game it would be this year.

    Healy and Rizzuto are SG no matter what the scouting services say plus Fromm and Brooks are 40% 3pfg shooters coming in.

    Inauguration for President Rodriguez was today. His family came from various parts of the country to see him, it was pretty cool to see them all visit. They had a small dinner last night, a coffee ceremony this morning and the official ceremony at the Performing Arts Center on campus today w/ the Chancellor. UAlbany's new president is inaugurated https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/UAlbany-s-new-president-is-inaugurated-12829673.php

    High expectations are already set for UA regardless of who is expected to play CB has us expecting to be good the question is will we be NCAA good. I would expect next year's team to be opposite of this year's team. Next year's group could start slow and improve all year long.

    There's literally no pressure on anyone next season. Hopefully they can all play loose and adjust as we go. Whatever happens happens. Can't get worse than a first round exit this year in the quarters.

    Click I'm in total agreement about highlight tapes BUT......... I'm just amazed how fast the staff got commitments on the perimeter especially since their main focus all season was probably was on Bigs for next season!!!!

    Must contain our excitement...we had an NCAA bound team on paper this previous year and although we won a ton that didn't materialize. These guys look like great gets but the jury is still out on if they will buy into the system and play their role as needed and gel as a team...but so far, this has been a pretty solid off season for Mr. Brown. I approve on all counts.

    Is kikuria Gordon Graham? I am not sure I have ever seen a post from this person that isn't about title IX, adding Crew, or taking the time to talk about how toxic and bad the athletic department culture is. It almost feels like a personal vendetta. We get it. You are pissed that they cut tennis. We get it, you think they should put a crew team on the Hudson. Your point has been received.

    What are you talking about. Seriously. Your posts are constantly "ax grinder" types. 1. Campus culture has zero to do with women's hoops but for about 10 schools that have big followings. If you are referring to some other campus culture, that is also some horse nonsense. 2. No Title IX issues have any effect on the woman's basketball program...so no coach is going to be bothered by that subject. In fact, our Women's HC is paid an astronomical amount of money that is rarely seen at this level. She's paid that in DIRECT RELATIONSHIP TO MEETING TITLE IX. 3. Budgetary issues, again, have zero to play here with women's hoops unless, again, we are talking about P5 schools. Anything but P5 budgets for women's hoops are merely a reflection of the rest of the DI programs generally. 4. Please explain what other FEDERAL LAWSUIT affects UA...specifically the athletic program. Honestly, I don't get your posts...EVER. They are completely half-cocked...and that's giving you a 1/4.

    Probably a non story if they're winning. I'm sure you can dig up dirt on all 350 coaches if you really really wanted to. Siena sucks and the admins realized they made a huge mistake with the contract and they are looking to get out without paying him a dime. The chances a student manager goes to the press because he was called a future unabomber? School obviously leaked this story.

    I am what I am... There will most likely be times next year where I'll be pouring gasoline on my self and jumping into the gif. I apologize in advance although I'll do my best trying to remember that this will he a crazy young team. I just want effort, heart, love for the game to come through and them making strides with experience. Will try to keep the reality of what this roster is in perspective. Lol

    No doubt we are going to struggle sometimes next year and Click will post gifs of burning dumpster fires. Last year there were times, even in games we won, that the team looked like it wasn't having much fun. Hopefully we see something different next year.

    Again, I liked Zach Bye when he was here and I know he is/was a long time friend of Joe; but this comment just sounds like talk show fodder. How can he make a comment like this? There is plenty more that Joe could have done! For starters if nothing else, finish what he started; not to mention that he could lead a team to the ncaa's, could become player of the year in the conference, could break all sorts of personnel records. I know it sounds bitter to say he has not accomplished any of these things and truth be told the records, rewards & ncaa are really secondary, but finishing what he started here would have been (IMHO) much more rewarding than "seeing" if he could play @ a higher level. And Oh by the way he had no higher level or for that matter any offer from any school other that UA. Maybe a little loyalty to the school that showed a lot of interest and gave him a free university degree is something MORE he could have done.

    I wish Joe the best but it seems (by pure speculation lol) Joe wants a team he can ride into the post season with and UAlbany was looking for Joe to be the leader to take us to the NCAA tournament. As we know we never got our leader we were looking for this year. We all had those high local hero expectations sometimes expectations are wrong. Nothing is wrong with that, I'd rather him be honest with himself and the team if that's the case, who knows. Not everyone wants to or has the skills to be that. Maybe he knew he was not going to be that clutch guy everyone thought he would be. Maybe being a small fish in a big pond is something he wants to try out his grad yr. A LOT of maybes, we will never know. Only him and CB know. Onto the purple and gold scrimmage!

    For the record I never said good riddance. Perhaps I don’t get weepy over a kid leaving. Support is for the program and there is absolutely nothing that I can do to change things regarding personnel. So move on. See what a new crop can bring. The measure of success for our program now is not winning seasons, it’s AE crowns and NCAA trips. Does a potential recruit care that Cremo was ROY or 6th man or set some records? Or would they be more impressed if we’d taken a couple of AE titles in that time? No, it’s not dealing with loss. It’s dealing with inevitable change which arrived sooner than we thought it would.

    I get Nichols...but am annoyed with the Cremo loss. Kids these days don’t finish what they start. I get that he has Power 5 offers...but so did Jamar. Stay the course. #lifelessons Joe’s legacy just went from potential rafter jersey to Logan Aronholt.

    Seems like a well rounded player, big body, seemingly soft touch, ability to step out and hit a three, good foul shooter and a solid rebounder. Has a history of playing with/against high level competition. Seems like a good fit. I hope he adjusts to DI level quickly.

    Guys this thread is about WBB. Let's move the TX, Crew, etc. stuff to OT where it belongs. I get ya'll are responding but don't feed into it. Now that the news is out, any word on who Benson might target to replace? I'll admit I barely follow WBB but having two successful BB programs helps our whole ADept.

    My last last words .... going to games for 48 seasons ...last 19 years at Division 1 ... coaching instability in the early years however our athlete - student relative stability ... this is biggest departure of established talent... remember we lost 4 players ... sitting in the stands after the Stony Brook lost ... the comments about a 22 - 10 season which did not feel like a successful season ... as we watched Cremo make his usual track across the floor to say hello to some family and friends ... .his face lacked any emotion... he looked he was saying his goodbys..we were discussing whether or not the CIT or CBI would be appropriate .... then "KF" stated we need change ... I do not think this what we were hoping for this ...in my opinion... too much Roger Wyland in the face of Will Brown and Joe Cremo ... looking for something to report on Channel 13...Joe was tired of being the face of UAlbany ... as the old saying goes "if you cannot take the heat of the kitchen ... get out" ...Will thank you for taking a chance on Cremo - Nichols ... Will Brown ... you have my support

    Gattuso talks spring practice, coaching changes and the upcoming season. Interesting how he says Bernard is a defensive coach. Then why was he the OC?!?!? https://twitter.com/UAlbanySports/status/978301796488642560
