  1. Rittenburg of ESPN reports Pete Rossomando to Rutgers as O-Line coach. He’s 65-47 as head coach at New Haven and CCSU since leaving Albany in 2008
  2. In the TU story, Coach tells what happened on UMBC's last shot A miscommunication between UAlbany freshmen Antonio Rizzuto and Cameron Healy resulted in Council, who played only seven minutes in the game, finding himself open. "Our mindset on that last possession was the only thing that beats us is a three," Brown said, "so we're going to man up, switch every screen exchange and hand-off. It's just man-on-man and keep the ball in front of you. If we do get beat, we're going to get beat off the dribble for a two. "The baseline action that they ran on that play was an exchange, and it involved our two freshmen. One of them (Healy) switched, and one of them (Rizzuto) stayed with their man. They got a wide-open shot at the end. It's a good learning experience for our guys in that situation."

    At Thanksgiving I would not have bet the women to have more wins than the men at this point. Good ball movement and hustle today. Both Ford and deCortes played today Looks like UMBC will spend an extra night or two in Albany

    Saturday's women's game moved up to noon due to the incoming storm
  5. Actually there were two defenders inside the charge circle, two outside the lane, #3 comes across with what we've had moving picks called against us all year, #11 moves behind the block from the right wing, catches it in midair about ten feet out, and hits a fadeaway. Play is at about 1:35 on the Lowell highlight clip (which does show some of our highlights as well)
  6. https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/Former-UAlbany-football-players-on-ground-floor-13539615.php Alliance of American Football. M-L with Memphis, coached by Mike Singletary. Hoskins with Salt Lake, Coach Dennis Erickson. Each has a $250K 3-year nonguaranteed contract
  7. Exactly what de Sousa had - 1 point, 1 rebound, 1 block, 1 turnover in 7 minutes. 1-2 FT, 0-2 FG including a missed putback . Was attendance really 1793? Looked worse on tv
  8. I would NOT “break off that character mold.” That could cause more problems than it solves.
  9. TU says Hank rolled an ankle in practice Thursday in a collision with Lauderdale. status unsure. Lulka’s wrist still wrapped. Maine may be the biggest team in AE. Stire officially hired as video coordinator.
  10. Bernard Clark is head coach at RMU now. Did he recruit Gray to Albany?
  11. Prepare for greatness

    Probably unrelated, but the program for the baseball "First Pitch Dinner" ends with Facility Project Overview. http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211786010 Nothing for athletics noted on the Office of Facilities Management projects map.
  12. Goalie Danny Vitiello has signed with Nashville of the United Soccer League http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211785930
  13. They did, in 2 OT. Probably one of the most unlikely upsets of the season. Fordham is 9-5
  14. TU headline : Campbell licking his chops for Lamb. Wants to be DPOY and also Sixth Man of the Year. Relishes the challenge of Lamb, after Lyles last year. Is adjusting to coming in off the bench, after cooling down from pregame. Brown talks about Lamb: “It used to be just play off him, and his freshman year they posted him up a lot more. Now he’s just so well-rounded. He’s a true scorer, and he’s so darned physical that he’s a tough matchup. If we put Campbell on him, they’ll send him down to the block and post Campbell up. If we put any of our bigs on him, he’ll float on the perimeter and attack off the dribble.”
  15. In Daugherty's T-U blog, Lulka took a spill in practice. "Brown said “structurally, there is nothing broken, so it’s going to be a tolerance of pain and how quickly it gets better.”" “We’re preparing that we won’t have him,” Brown said, “and if we do have him, it’s a bonus.”
  16. Massey predicts UVM -8, Sagarin say UVM -7

    Ford had a sinus condition, went home to be treated by her own doctor. I thought she was supposed to be back soon. Think I saw DeCortes on the bench. This team is coming around, but they still have no depth and don’t shoot very well
  18. Yeah, I don’t know they can’t say “If the defender is inside the circle, the offensive player will not be called for a charge for normal basketball movements; all other plays will be called as they would be anywhere else on the court.”
  19. I don’t know if that explanation helped. The announcer was a homer, but I’ve heard plenty worse, even in so-called professional major league jobs.
  20. From a 2011Sporting News interview with NBA ref Joe Forte: 1. Which defender does this rule apply to? Forte: “Understand, this applies only to the secondary defender. The primary defender is defined as facing the player with the ball, and there’s no required distance — I can be 30 feet from you, but if there’s no one in front of us, I am the primary defender, as long as there is a clear path. The secondary defender is defined as picking up the offensive player.” 2. Does the offensive player have immunity? Forte: “If the secondary defender is in the (arc) and contact occurs, it could be a blocking foul, it could be an offensive foul or it could be incidental contact. If the secondary defender comes over and is in the restricted area, there are exceptions to the rule. If the offensive player wipes him out with the arm — wipeout is the extension of the arm from the elbow to the wrist — or if I drive and unnaturally use my knee to push him out or my foot to kick him, offensive foul. Now, we know when an offensive player drives to the basket, the natural move is to put their knee up; that is not an offensive foul. The offensive foul comes when I deliberately use it unnaturally.” 3. How does this apply on a fast break? Forte: “As we know, a fast break is when the defense is outnumbered, a 2-on-1 or 3-on-2. On the fast break, all defenders are considered secondary defenders. If he’s in the restricted area and there’s contact, it’ll be a block (save for the exceptions). If he’s outside the restricted area and there’s contact, it’s a normal basketball play — could be a block, could be an offensive foul.
  21. this far in they tell me to disable my ad blocker on chrome, got video now
  22. Anybody got video? All I see is a black screen and live stats.
