    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.

    Lets not forget that with Joe and David on the roster we did win 67 game in 3 seasons and they were true Student/athletes!!!! We should appreciate them for their accomplishments. Our standard has become the NCAAs so they did fall short there but they really had a good run. I wish them the BEST and hope they are not disappointed at the end of next season.

    I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll drive through snowstorms to away games. We'll live and die with each foul call and then won't be able to talk the next day from screaming. We're fanatics, that's just what we do.

    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.

    I can't remember a year when we've had this many interesting story lines going into a season. -Son of an NFL QB might be our starting QB -Hanks coming back from injury -Former starting QB and Punter might be starting at LB -Former basketball player as a Tight End. -Click still banned by Gattuso on Twitter.

    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.

    Jus saw that. Awesome. Anyone saying this isn’t good for Albany is insane. I’m still not happy they left...but we have two kids that are first guys or so off the bench for the national champs and a top ranked ACC team. Brown did a great job getting and coaching these kids.

    Major land for Coach and the staff. Mitch Doherty just committed. Big time passer and overall big. Had an offer from UMASS and was supposed to be on his offical to Hartford this weekend. Great job

    Yup, yup and yup. It isn't just this year either. If you look over the last couple of seasons they've outperformed us in in the CAA. To me, that's the capper. If both programs were struggling, you could say the CAA is tough ,etc. The fact that they are doing well and maintaining it, really shines a light on us being in the cellar.

    And I have noticed that our fellow SUNY brethren Stony Brook, are playing great ball this season including destroying URI today 52-14. Just makes our pathetic season look even worse. Ready for BB!

    Your honor(s), I'd like to submit exhibit #147 into evidence to support the charges of the thread herein, where the defendant Gattuso has been charged with the destruction of an entire football program and demoralizing an entire fan base of seasoned vets into not bothering with attending games. Exhibit 147 = Homecoming Massacre of 2018

    They had the longest winning streak in the country until tonight. The way I look at it. Albany beats Morgan State - Morgan State beat North Carolina A+T - North Carolina A+T beat ECU - ECU beat North Carolina - North Carolina just beat Pitt. That means, we're better than Pitt. Simple.

    Siena's AD opined that the game should be at the TUC because it is a community game and that the TUC would allow more fans to see the game. This rationale or explanation would be furthered if the schools played the game twice in one season (once at the TUC and once at SEFCU) or if the game were played once a year with the game being treated as a neutral game for Siena and not in either schools' season-ticket package. Indeed, were the game treated as a neutral game, even more community members would have access to seats because it would not be included in Siena's season ticket package. What Siena's AD is really saying is that this is a community game for Siena season ticket holders. The position taken by the Siena athletic director is offensive, one-sided, and selfish. I want nothing to do with their basketball program or school. Benson has represented our interests well, but I am not so sure Siena's AD has done the same for his school.

    Related to complaints and suggestions above, new hires at the Athletic Department: Leslie Moore, Associate AD for Facilities, Scheduling and Operations, promoted from Assistant - your complaints here. Erika Kenney, Assistant AD for Ticketing and Group Sales - hope that's selling tickets, not ticketing cars in the parking lot John Reilly, Assistant AD for Athletic Communications - assumes there's something they want to communicate, unless his job is to delete complaining emails http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211735394 Sorry if I'm getting cynical

    The Admin can promote UA being a football school but the reality is that has meant resources ($) taken away from other programs to support a flailing one, because we're a football school now... ? I do agree though this is a bball thread.. ? so back to bball....can't wait!

    Guys. Why are we fighting? We’re all in this together. Don’t be like the rest of the world right now. This should be a safe, enjoyable space to root and discuss, not to belittle and tear down. We see enough of that elsewhere. We all want the same thing. UA Victories in all sports. Let’s act like it. Full stop.

    3 year deal, 2-1 is fine. The community needs this game too much to let it die. SEFCU in 2018 TUC in 2019 SEFCU in 2020 Anything less should be a big fat no.

    The misguided feeling of superiority by Siena and its fans sickens me. I hope we don't give in to them. I'm fine not playing them this season.

    I hear we are quickly approaching the drop-date on this game and at this point this game is unlikely to continue. Good, proud of Benson finally standing his ground. Good luck Siena getting someone else to come in and bring 10k people.

    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.

    Olddog- 100% agree. We have some INSANE talent coming in...and they better just be ready to go. As a fan, I am hurt by Joe’s departure. I get it...but he won’t be anything more than a 6th-8th man on a Power 5 program. He could have played pro in Europe wherever he played his last year. He was a legacy guy...a local hero. Personally, the NCAA needs to get it’s $iena straight...work with the NBA to get rid of the one and done...and work on themselves to get the Grad Transfer rule abolished. It’s destroying low major and mid-major hoops...and the NCAA is forgetting what makes hoops so great. Wait until the not havin to sit a year rule goes into affect- forget about keeping stud players.

    The complaining about each other is part of the fun of it though. Brown has gotten much better at it over the years. I love hearing his little subtle jabs during interviews that if you weren't a real fan you wouldn't realize he was pointing directly across town.

    You are extremely irrational at the moment. Lol. UMBC did what no other team could have done in 135 tries. We also beat UMBC by 44 points this year. Stony Beat them by 30+. Crazy things happen. UVA plays UMBC 1000 times, they probably win 990. Crazy things happen. To say that UMBC winning has undone everything we've accomplished makes little sense. When UVM beat Cuse in a massive upset, did that set us back 15 years? Within a couple of years, we were making our debut in the big dance. UMBC will get a lot of recognition and that will be good for our conference. Mid-majors conferences are only as good as the results they produce in big game situations. I think this ultimately helps UA, and I think we could have an excellent team next year.
