    College basketball games are 40 minutes and with 5 players on the floor that means there are 200 minutes to go around. Last night we played freshman for 101 of those 200 minutes. As good as our freshman our, unless they're named Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, we're going to struggle early in the season. I'm surprised at the reactions to Lulka. Maybe we all expected him to come with a cape, a big "S" on his shirt and fly around Sefcu Arena. I thought he's been pretty solid for his first two games - Avg 9PPG, 6 RPG while shooting over 58% from the floor. He showed a couple of nice post moves. Right now, our offense is no where near organized enough to get him consistent touches in the post.

    So Rizzuto just strolls into the 9th game of the season and, after not playing a minute of D1 basketball drops 13 pts, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. If there are any other Rizzuot/Iatis out there we should totally offer them a scholarship. Also, nice find of Fruscio to set up his score. Best game of the year for Hank. I'm not sure what the MAAC did to Ahmad Clark but had 30 against Canisius and 29 against Monmouth. There were stretches of Ahmad and four frosh out there. That's a good sign. The zone in the first half was interesting. Made rebounding tough though. Monmouth is good for what ails you but a solid step in the right direction.

    We had a putrid home loss against Harvard to go 2-6 in the first 8 games of the 2005-06 season. I don't remember how the rest of that year went.

    Hope everyone is watching the great half Hank is playing.. he is all around the ball. Really playing well.

    The fire Gattuso and/or Benson thread seems to be still going strong over on Fall/football etc. But I decided to post my comments here as more than football is at stake. See Clacks negative assessment of football, title IX, facilities ALL right-on. In Clack's post, he does give props to Benson on GDAC and I also agree with him there; but he says Benson is hard to judge overall because COMMUNICATIONS on facilities, resource allocations, title IX are pretty much non-existent. And here-in rests my biggest concerns. Does Benson think the title IX issues are just going to evaporate???? Everything is always such a big secret?? Going back to the "bag and stadium seat" fiasco; a committee of administrators, students, fans, community leaders, campus police, etc. could have avoided so much embarrassment and BAD feelings. On these larger issues of coaching concerns , title IX, facilities, and resource management; COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMUNITY/FAN INVOLVEMENT are even more vital!

    Congratulations to Stark and Hanks for making the All CAA team. That’s the good news. The bad news is that 90 players were selected to the three teams and only 2 from UA made it. Not a single defensive player could crack the 42 defensive players chosen. That to me is an indictment of the current coaching regime which was claiming thatthey have the most CAA talent yet. Not so much. On the the other hand, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Maybe Lauderdale can teach the them some toughness. He doesn't seem shy or fragile around the court.

    Not super surprised with the way we played tonight. Veteran teams come into this game and take care of business, young teams...not so much. Miller and French gave us some nice energy and effort off the bench. Our young guys can learn from Miller who plays with a purpose every time he puts the uniform on. He is an easy guy to root for. I watched tonight and saw: A) Some guys who get it. B)Some guys who are starting to get it C) Some guys who don't quite get it yet. It's still November and there's plenty of time for guys at "C" to go to "B." In fact, it's one of the fun things to watch in college basketball.

    As far as I’m concerned they can take it out of Benson’s salary.

    I'm new to the board but have followed our team for years. Regarding defense: I cringe when our 5 is above the foul line and our point is left with their 4 or 5 underneath. Hank moves well but his game is patrolling near the hoop. Trying to trap out front should be the exception, not the rule. Can't count the number of times our bigs leave their post only to have the ball dumped in for an easy layup. Also, BU moved the ball well. No unnecessary dribbling... led to solid looks. If we play zone, need to move faster- Can not allow easy three point looks. BU was exceptionally hot in the first half but still there needs to be more in the face. Additionally, we must have two or more positioned to haul in the rebound. Offense looked best when Malachie was in there. He is long and creates opportunities. Healy a gamer. I though Ahmad played well, although he missed a couple of easy layins. On the other hand, I agree with the board that he trying too hard. Some shots are not meant to be. My line up would be Healy, De Sousa, Clark, Campbell and Luka. Campbell plays 4 and is only allowed to drive and shoot bank shots 10 feet in. Coach still hasn't broken the bad habit of chewing a guy out on the sideline. Looks bad and doesn't get a the affect sought. Ditto- for the foot stomp.

    I honestly think this team is going to be fine. Maybe not this year but definitely next year. 4-5 freshman getting significant time and Jucos who can take a year to get acclimated. I think there is talent there. Bad shooting night for everyone hurt.

    I'll remind everyone that they already have $5mill+ for SEFCU renovation as specifically designated by the Casey gift. I've heard a number around $20mill needed for a complete gut and renovation similar to what SBU did on the Island. I've also heard unsubstantiated rumors but from a good source (in the past) that Benson at least a little while ago was still thinking a brand new arena. I'm still flabbergasted that they have managed to secure ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE MILLION DOLLARS...how long has this campaign gone on? This further underscores my personal belief that if Benson would only put something to the UAlbany community at large, a plan, a vision, a rendering, a campaign...ANYTHING...maybe people would rise to the occasion especially if it's a sensible plan. But like everything else in his tenure, nothing is communicated, there is no outward vision.

    Blame attendance on Healy. He played with RJ Barrett on Monteverde team in FL. He needed to convince him to come play for UA and CB instead of some loser program at Duke and some guy named Coach K whose won a couple of games I believe. All those dunks would pack SEFCU every game I bet. 😁😁😁

    Don't believe these are bad loses. They are young and play hard. If there was ever a year to just worry about conference play that is this year.

    There are two area's that JUMP off the page analytically that if we can clean up, we are going to be much better. - TO's - ranked 308, it is very very hard to win games consistently with the number of turnovers we are making. I understand why they are making them, the game hasn't slowed down for many of these kids. They may be nervous and rushing, pressing etc. This should get better with time. - Finishing inside the arc/2pt fg% - ranked 328th in the country. Right now, they simply can't finish at the rim at all. Not really sure why. Clean those two things up at least to acceptable levels and this Albany team will win a lot of games.

    I'm probably going to sound like a broken record this year but I'm going to say it again. These kids need time for the game to slow down a little bit for them. Everything, especially for the big men down low, seems so rushed. It's like they know the game is faster so they are trying to physically play as fast as they can and when you do that you get reckless and lose control. I think we've seen this a lot with the Jucos and freshman in the past. I believe players like Lulka and Lauderdale and even Hank have the skill and talent to be good in this conference, it's just going to take time and more importantly experience. That game went from borderline unwatchable to an exciting finish. Good to see them show some fight and come back. Of course I would've liked a win and I'm not a fan of moral victories but hopefully this will give them some confidence. The talent is there!

    De Sousa is about as lost as I've ever seen any player lost in this program. Nothing is clicking for him right now. Kept getting balled ripped away from him...limites motor didn't persue hard just let things happen to him. May be a redshirt candidate...

    Thoroughly enjoyed watching this win. Team is a lot of fun to watch. Honestly so much better watching this team play compared to last year. Don’t know if it’s because they are young, but you don’t see them complaining on every shot to the refs looking for a foul like a couple of guys we had did.

    Very nice win buy let's give credit when is due. Campbell played extremely well. Played good defense and hit the open shot. He will be given it all year, and as a senior he needs to knock them down. Clark was awesome as well. Good team win. Just keep getting better.

    I actually really like this game this year with this team. They are struggling right now on both sides, beating up on Oneonta could help them see the ball go through the hoop, get their confidence up a little. If there was ever a year to play a sub D1, this is it!

    One year ago, I bought in the reasoning for the extension. One year later, I now know the extension was premature. I have decided to opt out of my Gold Seats and the $500 donation. My patience is gone.

    From what I’ve read he did not directly benefit financially, They were saying 10-14 yrs is what the prosecutors wanted and his lawyers 4 months! Most of what I’ve seen indicates he and another guy steered bids to two favored contractors by previewing the RFPs and writing them in such a way as to tailor them to the strengths of the favored companies. I guess that’s what they call bid rigging. The favored companies contributed heavily to Prince Andrew’s campaign, but don’t worry...cough cough...he’s not...cough cough....wink nod....involved. 🙄.

    College lax news: @UAlbanyMLax coach Scott Marr tells @LaxSportsNet @Tehoka1 is in the process of re-enrolling in school and will be with the team in January. Marr says Tehoka was away from the program in the fall for personal reasons. More tonight on #LacrosseNow

    I think French needs to move to a starter in place of Hank by AE time. More fluid and seems to be in right place at right time for driving dump-offs.

    Guarded each other in both the 1st & 2nd halves. Nice comments by Vitale that they were both exceptional students, roommates and family friends. Surprised at the amount of playing time each got in the tournament. Kudos to them, Coach Brown and the quality of play in the America East.

    Funny quote by Will Brown, from Michael Kelly’s (Gazette) Twitter page... Brown on Healy, who had 22 tonight: “He’s just out there, smiling. He gets beat for a backdoor layup, he smiles. He turns it over, he smiles. He hits two 3s in a row, he smiles. I pat him on the back, I yell at him — he smiles. He’s just a free spirit out there, having fun.”

    I know it's only 4 games, but I have watched all four and I would have to say I am disappointed so far in Lulka and DeSousa. From what we heard, I expected more.

    Not to be a buzzkill, but UA shut out a playoff bound UNH team in the last game of 2017, then came out and laid an egg for 2018. Exciting win and great for the kids, but it changes little. Hopefully Undecuffler is the real deal and he and the team can build off of that. Mofor has been the more effective runner in 2018, so he will be back. The top receivers are back. So maybe, just maybe, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    I think you'll see Campbell move to the 4 as soon as Rizzuto comes back and De Sousa gets a bit more comfortable with Lulka moving to 5 and Hanks to bench. Being at the 4 Campbell won't have to create as much or be expected to shoot on the wing.
