  1. 4 players drafted? Nice! Congrats! Why do they hold the draft before the end of the season? Will it affect play for the rest of the year?

    I was at that same event. It was 3 years ago. I think he said he was forced to because he needed another home game and couldn't get anyone else. The school wanted at least 15 home games to help with season ticket sales. They probably had a multi year agreement.

    Or in the OOC. A bunch of potential dates open, and I don't think big schools would be afraid of a team of freshman and transfers (and 2 experienced players). Might be an opportunity to play in several high profile games.

    Going back to the stages of loss... We are officially in acceptance. Definitely looking forward to rooting for them both, and hoping we have the opportunity to beat 1 in the round of 64, and the other in the round of 32 or sweet 16.

    Hype machine in full effect.

    With so many new faces, I have no idea what we need. Typically, on most college teams, there are between 8-10 players that get into the rotation. At the AE level, I think the goal is normally to have a roster with 5 Bigs, 5 guards, and 3 swing/wing types. The team has 3 players listed at wing now (Campbell, Fromm, and deSousa). Campbell graduates after this season. I see a wing on the 2019 wishlist more than now. The team has only 4 "Bigs" currently - Lauderdale, Lulka, French, and Hank. Landing another 6'8" or 6'9" mobile big would be my first target The team has only 4 guards - none listed as a SG currently - Clark, Brooks, Healy, and Rizzuto are all considered point guards. Find me a sharpshooter!

    I'm guilty as charged.

    We gotta stop hyping these kids lol. Us addicted fans should not be getting this excited this time of year for a team with only 2 returning players that saw any game time at all (Clark and Campbell). I gotta stop worrying if Rizzuto or deSousa will red shirt. Who is gonna get time with all the apparent talent being brought in. At most Brown will go 9 deep, not sure if I have ever seen him regularly give more players than that minutes. I see 11 players right now that could step in and play, based on written words and youtube, with 2 scholarships to give. I'm worried that we will all get overly excited, set expectations way too high for such a young team, then get dissapointed with a 4th place finish and an exit from the AE playoffs in the second round.

    I just noticed the list of schools we have lost recruits to. Not a bad list. We are aiming high! VCU, USF, Pitt, Western Mich, ...

    Brooks has amazing range and a very quick release. Doesn't look like the strongest defense being played on him, so I don't know how well his game will translate to D1, but that is an impressive video.

    There is the battle for who gets to sit at home and watch the playoffs on ESPN3 (err the new ESPN+) but I doubt we will sink the the Bing level. Start Clark, Healy, Campbell, Lulka, and French. Get significant minutes from any combo of deSousa, Rizzuto, Hank, Lauderdale, Fromm, and Brooks. It is silly to say, but the team actually looks better and deeper next year. Gotta keep the purple and gold glasses in check though because the team looked deep this year, yet only 7 played any significant minutes, and look how that turned out. I'd love to see the America East deal with a lineup of: Healy, deSousa, Campbell, Hank, and French. (6'3", 6'6", 6'6", 6'10", 6'11") or maybe: Brooks, Clark, Fromm, deSousa, Campbell (5'9", 6'1", 6'4", 6'6", 6'6") Both would be fun to watch.

    I agree with that. I was basing it on where they are listed on Verbal Commits. 5 Point guards listed including Fruscio.

    I only included scholarships. If he was given one, it would go to 4. Not that I am in any position to say so, but I wouldn't be against Brown giving him one for his junior and or senior years. He has become a big part of the personality of the team, done media exposure for the team, and is a fan favorite. Only local kid still on the team and draws some fans. Give him a ship so we don't have to deal with the Reese Williams blogs all over again in 2 years.
