Since the team had 12 Non-Conference Wins, the poll seems to indicate that the majority of votes feel that UA will end the season with a conference record of 8-8, 7-9, 6-10, or 5-11. 

 

At least we have low expectations for the rest of the season.

Most concerning to me, regardless of wins, is the 2nd question of when we'll bow out. 7 people think it's either 1st or 2nd round. Not good for a team that aspires to not only win the AE but possibly win a NCAA game...at least before the season started.

 

I have a conflict on Thursday evening which I'd normally skip in favor of UA hoops without a seconds doubt but I might just take care of the other matter and watch the game late Thursday night...that's where I'm at.


GO DANES!!!

We probably had these same conversations during conference play in each of our conference championship years.

 

Just finished watching this, if anyone wants to evaluate our play:

Campbell last year in conference play, 53% from 2, 32% from 3. This year, 39% and 13%...LOL...his outside jumper looks worse than Stires if he ever tried one...no fluidity, nothing...why does he even bother? Slash/drive or move the ball...no more 3's. 

 

He's attempted more 3's already this year then all of last year...37 vs 36 last year. He hit 7 all year this year, and only 1 in AE play in 8 attempts. He's actually shooting 58% from inside the arc, mostly on slashes to the rim. DO THAT!!!!!!

Stire had a 3pt attempt the other night at the buzzer. Not sure if it shows in the stats, but was that his first attempted 3 in a game at UA?

No...I picked 17-20 and Championship...they will surpass the win total but not sure about championship. They have the talent to make a run as a 4 seed.

I just voted for the first time because my account wasn't set up but I originally was going with 21+ wins and damn you Vermont. Damn you Vermont doesn't specify what round so I got more bang for my buck with that selection. At that point in time, I did think they were the only ones who could beat us. 

 

Like click said, I think Albany can make a run, especially if someone (not Albany) gets taken out early and there is some reseeding. I really hope they make a run, its always nice to hang onto 1 or 2 more weeks of hoop season.

The order of the 2nd pole (last 3 options) is:

Damn you Vermont - lose in AE title game

Semi's

Quarter's
