  1. We're 21% of the way there! We've raised $1,045 I know there were some donations made by BPF posters so thank you very much!! Figured I'd give the thread a bump if anyone was in the donation spirit of the season today
  2. Last Up: Kent State Next Up: vs Vermont TV/Streaming: ESPN3 Local Radio: 104.5 FM The Coaches Cure CF game is January 5th this year. Albany is 5-0 in Coaches Cure CF games.. let's see if that magic can continue against a good UVM team. The GOAL this year is to raise $5,000! The fundraising has just begun and we're at $600 or about 12% of the goal. Support Coach Brown, those with Cystic Fibrosis and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by donating to help us get to the 100% mark. If you would like to donate please follow this link and click the yellow box on the left hand side that says "Donate to a Team Member" . The first 30 gifts of $25 or more in support of the event can earn you a ticket to the game. Information: On Saturday, January 5, 2019, the University at Albany Men's Basketball team will be hosting its 6th Annual Coaches Cure CF basketball game. I am raising awareness and funds through this event to help support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - to find a cure for all people with cystic fibrosis. The annual UAlbany Coaches Cure CF game began at UAlbany with a 74-63 win over Maine during the 2013-14 season. Since then, the effort has raised more than $18,000 in the fight against cystic fibrosis. The first 30 gifts of $25 or more in support of the event can earn you a ticket to the Coaches Cure CF game against Vermont on January 5th. All contributions, small and large, are appreciated! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in cystic fibrosis research and care. Because of the Foundation, people with CF are living longer and healthier lives. The outlook for people with CF continues to improve year after year. Thank you in advance for your support and participation with this event, you are helping to make a difference for people living with CF. 2019 UAlbany Coaches Cure CF Website and Information: http://fightcf.cff.org/site/TR?team_id=80411&fr_id=7423&pg=team

    At one point David was guarded Joe and David sagged off and let Joe take a three. Joe missed.. Not a ton of times that they are guarding each other, but they have been on the court together more than I thought.
  4. Does Coach Brown not do the end of game radio interviews anymore?
  5. Watts, Metcalf and Jacob I. (& maybe Chris Wyatt) were at the game. Always nice to see past players supporting the team.
  6. Can't seem to penetrate their zone. Reece is making some tight passes, but no one has been able to handle them, leading to turnovers.
  7. Cant believe how little people are here. And we complain about our attendance.
  8. Hank and Lulka both have 2 fouls, Clark and Campbell both have 1
  9. I think so too. Different font..shorts may be diff too.
  10. Place is so TINY! Traveled with our 2 month old... making it work!

    While Brown previously named senior Devonte Campbell, junior Ahmad Clark, and redshirt freshmen Brent Hank and Adam Lulka as likely starters for Nov. 9 at Iona, the availability of both Hank and Lulka is now uncertain for the Great Danes. Hank crashed to the floor — hard — during Friday’s practice, and left the workout midway through to get an X-ray on his hip. Meanwhile, Lulka has been sick for the past week, and missed several practices. Making things worse, though, for the Great Danes is that the latest injury to freshman Antonio Rizzuto — who returned from a knee surgery earlier this year — was worse than expected. Rizzuto was originally supposed to miss a week with a bruised collarbone, but further tests in the past week showed Rizzuto actually cracked his sternum. He is likely out until late November. https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/11/02/health-woes-continue-to-mount-for-ualbany-men-s-basketball

    Agreed. People just need to tell that to the Athletic Administration.
  13. 2018-19

    I just said 'football school' because that has been heard being said. Meaning a higher % of resources go towards football since we're a 'football' school now.. I keep getting sucked into football after I agreed this should be a bball thread lol.
  14. 2018-19

    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!
  15. 2018-19

    The donation was due to the pre existing Foundation relationships, not Athletics.
  16. 2018-19

    I know they believe we are a football school. Heard its been said. I think most fans and those who have been fans or affiliated with school for more than a few years would disagree with them (newer admin).
  17. 2018-19

    Agreed. Admin thinks we are a football school so we don't get a P&G game cuz noone cares about basketball, but we have 4-5 years more of our winning coach Gattuso... ?.
  18. Classic's twitter account posted this link for tournament passes https://www.ssearenabelfast.com/basketball-hall-of-fame-belfast-classic-tournament-pass-sse-arena-belfast
  19. There is also a travel package here: https://collegesportstours.com/belfast-classic-2018-travel-packages/ Includes things you'd assume but also transportation to and from the arena.

    David was on UA campus. Was good to see David Nichols today. He stopped in to camp. We had a real good chat. He seems to be doing well!-CB on twitter Also posted a video Knotts posted on Instagram.
  21. We made GDAC donation on Dec 29, 2017 after Athletics sent out an email stating if you get your donation in before the end of the calendar year they would count it towards your football and basketball seat requirement for the upcoming seasons. When we got our football ticket renewals it stated we had NOT paid our GDAC donation for our seat requirement. We reached out to Justin Brown who explained to us the documents sent out from Athletics was incorrect. And that in fact our Dec 2017 donations DID count for our 2018 Football and Basketball seat donation. He said the reason why the Athletics forms were incorrect was because when we donated in Dec 2017 they had yet to 'set up' the fund that the donations were going into. It all happened so fast they wanted to give fans the opportunity to donate in the 2017 calendar year since the tax reform was passed so quickly and with little information for them to go by. (Though I'm not sure why 7 months later Athletics doesn't have our donation tagged correctly for the 2018 season, but either way...) So make sure that even if your online Athletics account OR the mailed forms they sent you state you did not yet pay for your GDAC seat requirement that if you think you did, contact Justin first before paying it. He will be able to let you know for sure if you really do owe a GDAC donation or if Athletics has old information.

    Saw David's dad post this yesterday, so seems no ill will towards UA.
  23. They're high quality which is why they are so much. Which is nice to see good quality items vs. overprices jersey shirts from the bookstore. It's not for everyone but glad to marketing team letting other parts of the school, etc use of the logos, etc.
  24. Some nicer high end UA gear. I saw it posted by Alumni Association on May 18th. They have a free shipping code through May 23 code: UALVB18.
