    My wife likes to say sports are basically soap operas for men. Have to agree with her on this one.

    Looks like a decent hire. He's already has a lost to Coach Brown. We beat MSM in the first four a few years ago.

    Does the America East allow its teams to play on the home court of DII teams? I mean, if not...Benson's hands are tied.

    President of Siena gets up to the podium and welcomes J. Christian to Olean...they don't even know as a program what city they are in. No wonder they couldn't find their ass with both hands trying to fire Patsos and hire a new coach.

    I think Campbell deserves some recognition he is the only returning starter and a 2 time All AE Defensive team member (as voted by the AE coaches). It seems he AE coaches appreciate him more than most UA fans.

    Love this: “I’m looking at the glass half full, not half empty,’’ Brown said. “No excuses. We’ll have different guys on different nights. I like the talent in our program. I’m confident we’ll be good.’’

    Leadership may be addition by subtraction. I don't want to see our best players always complaining to officials when things don't go their way.

    Just an anecdotal observation: Today I passed by the team wear section in the Clifton Park Boscovs .... one Albany T-shirt left....two FULL racks of some hideous green crap right next to it. Just saying....

    50-50 deal or it is time to walk ... will be significantly disappointed with our athletic director if we agree to anything less ... LCC needs that game for attendance figures, desperately ... I may, if the lopsided terms continue, have to join others on the board who have boycotted the game ... UA has won 5 of the last 6 (including the last two) ... four year deal, two and two ... anything less, please move on and schedule someone else ... let LCC and their business partners (TUC, etc.) absorb the hit ($) ... hope that all on the board (if they haven't already) make their feelings known to Mark B.

    You have to understand what the TU is and in that context you'll understand why you see them author a piece like this. The TU is NOT an objective entity when it comes to covering college basketball in the CD. The TU is essentially a propaganda outlet for Siena and are diligent in their efforts to prop up the team that plays in the building they bought naming rights to. When folks realize this to be the self-evident truth that it is...their stories and how they report on Siena makes that much more sense. Case in point, Siena people in an effort to force Patsos out, leaked dirt to the TU and used them to smear Patsos or at best (if he's guilty) air the dirty laundry to embarrass him into accepting a buyout. 'Nuff said!!!!

    A well known Siena *clears throat* fan (read stalker) MTS who doesn't even attend games, has no season tickets etc. has already pledged his allegiance on LCC board... ""Listening to Jamion - we got the right guy. He's the right guy at the right time. He's young and hungry. Well spoken. He commands respect. I'm ready to run into a wall for the guy!!" ...into the wall for the guy...I'M DYING HELP ME!

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I'll never look at Wyland the same way. "If Brown wants the Siena job, and he clearly does"...WHAT? And then he squash's the whole thing? Guy is a rat. Dude is burning bridges faster than they can be built.

    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 don't listen to the "talking heads" much. I am usually at the games But the win over Denver yesterday was the 3rd team who won a national championship in the last 3 seasons that Albany beat in the last 13 months North Carolina and Maryland being the other 2 Interesting since we never play anyone according to some. But to be the best you have to beat the best

    I couldn't disagree more...every program like track and football have gotten new facilities. It's time for MBB/WBB who continue to win despite very little being invested from a facilities standpoint into these programs.. Quite frankly...track pales in comparisons on the importance scale to basketball. As for football, their budget has grown significantly, they have a new stadium...(still losing biggly) they can wait for field house. It's time to take care of MBB/WBB

    Again, I insist I am NOT a Devante hatter; but I just do NOT see the "leader" label some have predicted? This team has needed someone to step up and be a floor leader for two+ years. The leader position has been wide open and begging for someone to take charge! Coach has repeatedly said this over and over again and even casual fans have been clamoring for an in your face Jacob Iati type. IMHO I have seen absolutely NO evidence that Devonte has been this type of player or has any hopes of becoming one. It will be a very young an inexperienced team this year, and I hope one of the newbies steps up, because I do not see Devante as much more than a role player. Does not mean a role player can not be a "leader"; but as I said I've seen no indication Devante has leader characteristics .

    Haven't seen the newbies yet and highlight videos are a joke (no one misses) unless they show some athleticism, dunks over someone. So I have no idea what we have but it does appear that the coaching staff has done a solid job filling out the roster. We seem 2 or 3 deep everywhere.

    I guess Flory is a SG and Starks is listed as a point. I'd guessed they would be looking for another big guy. Solid shooting numbers for Starks - just over 40% from 3 and 80% from the line. Preseason is going to be a battle which every position open.

    I expect CF to get the start. I can't say I have inside information....but maybe I do..... or maybe I am hoping my fellow West Genny Alum Chemotti sees this and forms his game plan around it. Either way, Albany is going to win 80% of the face-offs, and when they do, I hope they run the offense I called for (and got) in the most recent games. The dodge down the alley, pass to the 4 man, set a (moving) screen is a deadly play and we see it work 2-4 times a game for goals. Not to look to next season, but how amazing would it be in Tehoka undergoes a body transformation ala Miles and develops that little extra quickness to get out of the instant double he faces. My prediction for the near term: CF starts and has 4-5 points in a 13-6 Albany win vs the Spiders. ND dispatches a Denver team who isn't playing their best ball right now. CF's knee gets the medical attention needed to play 1 game at 90% (there are medical treatments that allow for this from talking to my brother who is an orthopedist) SUNY makes their first final four in a suprsingly defensive battle vd ND -- 9-7.

    Gonna be interesting to see if this one sacks up and comes down to SEFCU or if he'll be a little *itch like the rest of the coaches that have come through there...As for me, either it's a home and home or I'll never go to another Siena/UA game.

    They might consider playing D2. Its about at their talent level and they can argue with St. Rose over a home and home arrangement.

    It seems like these coaching searches are opportunities for people to throw every name under the sun "into the mix." The Siena search seems like it has had everyone from Rick Pitino to James Naismith involved.

    Amazing how back to back belly to belly failed HC hires can bottom out a program. They were really ready to turn the corner after those final three Fran years, now any coach in D1 worth a damn actually has to question whether the job is worth it. Here's to hoping they go back to back to back.

    If at some point soon Brown doesn't get things like COLA, SEFCU, fully funded summer school sessions... it's going to be harder to win recruiting wars and harder to win....Put up or shut-up day is coming for UA Admins. Gonna need to figure out if UA is going to strive to be a mid-major program of some gravitas or a low major happy to be D1. You can't have schools like UMBC, SBU etc. lapping you...like they are right now with facilities etc.

    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.
