    My favorite quote on the AE board - Binghamton now has more AE wins than Vermont, UMBC, and Maine combined

    This game without Ahmad is a loss... Say what you will. Good game dude! He came to play today. Constantly put pressure on Maine.

    Completely disagree. Kid has barely played. At best your only response can, and should be, "we don't know what we have with him unless he plays more." He was super athletic, super busy, his D was there...he was a bit sloppy with the ball...but I can't even imagine what kind of talent evaluation, on such a small sample, would leave anyone to state "he is not a Division 1 player".

    Piseno - got some love from the pundits very late in the recruiting cycles. Kid has an unbelievable motor and a big time stick. He will remind you of an even more athletic Troy Reh. Time will tell if he becomes an offensive threat at Troy was his last two years.

    OMG. This team lures you in with inspired play and then pisses you off with entirely different play within minutes! It's mindboggling.

    Also, de Sousa's family (along with a bunch of us) were all over the refs to check the clock after the late whistle on the intentional foul on Rizzuto. The second they added back on was big!

    I remember Mr. Smith. You don't forget a guy with a crazy name like that. He's had 20 plus in the past two games against us. One positive sign for Jojo Anderson. Mike Smith actually had the same injury earlier in his career and look at him now. He made our BPF scout in this thread. Playing without an ACL isn't common but it's not super unusual. There have been guys in the NBA and NFL who have played without them. My ACL was gone for 15 years before a doctor told me what I was missing.

    Thanks for the update. I still really miss how 104.5 used to upload all of their interviews to youtube. So hard to listen to while at work, and I still have not found a reliable place to listen to the replays. If anyone knows how to get to them, please share.

    I thought French did what you want your role players to do - play with energy. Hansen was more of the guy I hoped he'd be. Rebound and block shots. Hopefully this week we can get everyone healthy and practice together.

    I don’t doubt his ability to get to another NCAA, but it’s not going to be as easy as putting in a bid to get the first 2 rounds on your home court. Over the years you always hear from him all that matters is 3 games in March. There needs to be an emphasis on winning the America east regular season FIRST. The goal should be that.

    I think last year was the type of season that most "pundits" think the typical mid-major, American East team is going to put up more often than not, especially after the graduation of probably the best Albany class ever. I said it before that last season, IMO was a perfect storm of losing that sort of class, bigger coaching changes than anyone was willing to admit, less than stellar upperclass leadership last year, a couple of key guys banged up more than advertised, and oh year major Tehoka drama. After an amazing run, I am not sure Marr knew how to deal with the sudden adversity and most of the season seemed like a panic, and as I said after fall ball if you saw the games last fall they were a great prediction of what would happen, and if you saw the games against Penn and Army it was already a much different team starting with Tehoka. He was very fit, more of a leader.I am expecting a much different and great season from him. The only disappoint was Patterson's injury and him being off the field most of the fall. I have no update on how he is doing, but I was led to believe that he will be ready when the boys get back on campus this week. We alway hear about the incoming freshmen class, but this one is a good one and could rival the 2018 graduating class. If and it will be a big IF, the coaches are willing to take a few possible early lumps, there are 4-6 freshmen who could be impact players. There will be obvious freshmen ups and downs, but I hope the coaches play the long game and start working them in for a late season run. Face off situation has to improve. If not better, there at least has to be some sort of developmental plan. I think the defense could be much smarter. I am not saying the best guys were not playing last year, but how they played as a unit was not very good. I saw big strides from Tanner Hay in the fall, Kunz will be the #1 pole, and the 3rd starting spot will probably go to Filiposwki, but I need to see more out of him for a team defensive standpoint. His physical skills are very good. The biggest improvement will be at LSM. This new freshmen will blow you away. He should be the starter, but will probably split time with Barrow or Filipowski depending on what they do. Kozar and Weathersby are nipping at the heals at close. Regardless how it plays out this will be the biggest and strongest close D unit Albany has probably ever fielded. The recent weakness has been smaller d mids getting beat on alley dodges. We have several big freshmen who played a lot in the fall who look like Adam Osika sort of bodies. That is a big transition for freshmen, but there are a lot of options. Assuming Patterson shows up 100% or close to it, and rejuvenated Tehoka, the offense will be much better which really was the big disappointment last year. The big question will be middie offensive production. That is the wild card to me on the offensive side of the ball. This fall was much better than last fall. I think there is a lot more hunger than last year, and no drama coming into the season. I think if the team grows over the course of the season that they can regain the AE automatic bid and make it to the tournament, but it isn't a team that can get an at large bid. I think the big jump is over the next 2-3 seasons.

    Yup, I have learned from this team that a huge lead does not guarantee a win, nor does it mean we will play solid ball all game. Inconsistency is their middle name.

    The women's team is getting worse by the game. Lost by 12 to a 3-6 Monmouth team. 27 TO's, yes 27, no typo. Basic basketball skills are lacking for these D1 players. They were at home and not playing UConn or Baylor with length and size advantages. Kantzy had 9 of the TO's. Monmouth went to line 26 times, UA 4 FT.

    We only won ONE title in the first EIGHT years in the NEC (2002, the Duquesne game) and one in the last four (2011, NCAA first round.) Four titles total in 14 years, three losing seasons. And NEC teams give a lot more aid now than then, so no guarantee we’d have the same results, or the new stadium either

    Agree with the Rizzuto issue and his regression from last year. Absolutely praise him for being a volunteer firefighter and lives he helps save but he is a fulltime student with roughly 15 credits, a D1 scholarship athlete with practices, travel, and games, and then a firefighter with calls at all hours and mandatory training. Think he is burning the candle at both ends and it has affected his play.

    So here we go...4 year kids that came in as freshman and were on the roster within the last 4+ years this being the 5th year. Obviously some of these aren't set in stone as careers are still in progress. This is a quick list right off the UA site so hopefully didn't miss to many. - Trey Hutcheson ~ clearly right now a significant + with a long way to go - Mitch Doherty ~ way to early to tell - Antonio Rizzuto ~ to early to tell but trending negative for me - Malachi DeSousa ~ to early to tell but trending positive for me - Cameron Healy ~ clearly a positive - Adam Lulka ~ to early to tell but neutral for me, appears to have some ability but hasn't done much yet - Brent Hanks ~ neutral for me but recently showing some signs on the defensive end - Nikola Jerotic ~ wasted 'ship - David Nichols ~ for all his warts we won a ton of games with him at PG for me personally a big + - Joe Cremo ~ same as above...big + - Greg Stire ~ knew his role and played it extremely well, big + in my book - Mike Rowley ~ also knew his role and was a net + IMO - Dallas Ennema ~ excellent role player by the time he was a senior with an orating of 119. - Peter Hooley ~ 'nuff said if you go even slightly beyond the arbitrary 5 year limit... - Sam Rowley ~ 'nuff said - Max Twymann ~ scrub - Wheeler Baker ~ big time talent, can't believe his personal life derailed a promising career - MIke Wells ~ negative - Reece Williams ~ negative - Geremy McKey ~ negative - Luke Devlin ~ net + but injuries robbed him - John Puk ~ IMO a really nice role player I don't know, maybe I'm wrong but it seems like success rate is far better with 4 year kids. I mean with the exception of like 3 or 4 juco kids in our history, the 4 year kids seem to be a heck of a group, some stars and lots of great role players. Perhaps it's a function of kids needing to be in the program for years to pick it up but if you know that's what's going on, why are you recruiting so many kids that will never pick it up before they leave? I'm conscious of the fact that many of these 4 year kids grew on me over time, watching them improve and grow as players, a luxury the juco's don't have. The juco's however are supposed to be more mature as basketball players and yet there are very few juco's I would take over most kids on this list.

    Not to split hairs but 299,000/1,700,000 = 17.5% more than what UA spends on basketball. [or another way of looking at it 1,700,000 X 1.175 = 1,997,500]. The point is that 299,000 PER YEAR is a very significant amount of money. That represents over $5,000,000 more dollars on basketball since UA joined the AmEast. $5 million more dollars towards recruiting, scholarships, coaching, whatever. {certainly NOT spent a facilities.} That being said I DO NOT DISAGREE with you at all on the state of UA basketball. In fact I'm very concerned about the state of UA athletics in general. UnLike many I am not convinced football is "back"; I'm unhappy with UA's overall athletic vision; unhappy with facilities and how revenue is allocated and generated and unhappy with unresolved title IX issues; and more. I know you share many of these same concerns. I am not disagreeing with your basketball assessment, but offering it should be looked at in a more holistic athletic approach. IMHO vt does NOT have near the breath of programing and successes and possibly issues as UA athletics overall. And IMHO it is not a fair comparison when looking at vt BB vs UA basketball as program singular vs program singular. Want to compare vt. BB to someone try comparing them to $ienna.

    That's my problem. It's only about that..but it's NOT. That isn't going to get people excited to go see a game..I would hazard a guess that part of Vermont's success in recruiting is that there's a lot more appeal to playing in a small but packed and rowdy gym than a half empty cavern of gray with occasional bursts of enthusiasm.

    We have 3 losses by a total of 11 pts. (Lehigh by 4, Manhattan by 6 and Bucknell by 1) in those 3 games we totalled 49 turnovers. in these 3 games we managed to get off a total of 154 FGA. add in 49 turnovers and about 32% of the time we didn't get a shot off. We have to learn to value the ball!!! PS. We could really use Lulka, too. I think is importance is undervalued by most. We need another guard!!!
