The UA women prevail in OT, 72-68. Clean sweep of SBU tonight.

8 blocks by UA. 

 

For one of the poorest shot-blocking teams in the country, tonight's performance wasn't bad,

Hartford has been wacky this year. They've lost to some really bad teams - LIU Brooklyn (twice) and Bryant but have some decent wins over Miami (OH) and Rutgers.

 

I remember the Attia kid. He's a big guy to move out of the middle - 6'10 and 270. If he could hit free throws he'd be averaging double figures but he's shooting 42% from the line which is actually an improvement from last season.

 

Wasn't Attia the player who tried to be excessively aggressive against UA in some game in recent years?

I like the fact that UA beat 3 teams that they lost to last year. They beat Fordham both years, but it took an overtime last year at home to beat them while it was a clearer victory this year against Fordham on the road. Losses occurred both years to St. John's, but this year's game was far closer. The women beat St. Bonnie's this year for the first time in five outings. And this year the victory came on the road. Last year UA lost to Dartmouth in overtime, but this year UA handled Dartmouth more easily. I like the trends.

I like how UA played good defense but still scored nearly 80 points against a quality team last night.

How many of us thought UA would win 80% of its OOC games? Happy New Year!

At least once UA had the lead in this game.

Hey many of us are from University Gym days, so SEFCU is a big upgrade.  But as most of the posters here are saying SEFCU is great, except for concessions, restrooms, lack of chairbacks,  parking, a better entrance, etc.  I didn't say Q's facilities were the best or fantastic.  They are new and nice, they obviously feel they're large enough for their market.  Stony Brook's arena is nice and it's smaller than SEFCU.

 

One superior aspect of University Gym was the noise made by stomping the bleachers. Not so good in SEFCU. The gym was also homier. In big games you were right next to your neighbors. It was a tough place for opponents. The chairbacks are nice, though.

Interesting tidbit:

Pomeroy has UA at 97 and Siena at 281

 

So this upcoming game is another hit to our SOS.

The defense on both teams looked much stronger; yet, UA scored 57 points in the second half.

I'll say it now: This team may be the best UA team in its DI history.

Hey, it's a game. The team gets to keep its game-playing skills sharp, and, as Dane Pound says, give other players a chance for some time out on the floor in front of an audience. Maybe some team members will do some of their crazier stunts. Just enjoy it!

Winning goal scored by player with first goal of the season! Good gameplan.
