    My few novice observations... Miller looked good, calm and in control, knocked down a number of shots; French was much more physical underneath than I was expecting; Lulka can really spread the floor, shot well from three and had some nice moves down low; Brooks is quick and a great passer, mainly looked to distribute instead of attempting to show off his reported deep range, but had a couple nice mid-range/floater shots; Lauderdale is a load; Malachi looked like a very talented freshman, a bit unsure at times and not always great decision making, but big enough to fight underneath and athletic enough to operate on the perimeter, he was mostly at the 3 but played some time at the 2 during the scrimmage; Healy was very involved and knocked down some outside shots. I think there could be 10 guys averaging at least 5-8mpg. Clark and Brooks at PG.. Healy and Miller at SG.. Campbell and de Sousa at SF.. Lulka, Lauderdale, French and Hank in the front court. I will assume Flory's out for the year..don't have any specific knowledge, just a better safe than sorry guess. I will assume Rizzuto is low guard on the totem pole based on injury and experience..maybe RS option. And I will assume Jerotic is also not seeing much action this year..looked furthest behind in the scrimmage..maybe another RS option.

    Just noting the newsletter says "open practice" not "open scrimmage."
  3. Sorry..probably didn't explain that well enough. Didn't mean to suggest he might not be the coach..just that it seems the lack of announcement might not simply be the department failing to get around to it..because Fisher is basically in the same boat. Coordination, contracts, etc. Who knows.
  4. I believe the MLAX SID recently left for Towson. Not sure how much that plays into the lack of coverage. Probably more that the department clearly places a strong emphasis on football. FWIW..the Fisher MLAX site still lists Maloney as an assistant.
  5. Butts in the Seats 2018 edition

    So..we just need more advertising. Or cheaper tickets. Or better in-game promotions. Or beer in the seats. Or arena renovations. I say win baby win.

    I watched Clark's just 10 days ago and apparently already forgot it! Must be getting old... So..per those videos: Point Guard - Clark, Brooks Shooting Guard - Flory, Rizzuto, Healy Guard - Miller TBD - Starks, Fruscio
  7. Recruiting - 2018

    Brett Gifford was listed at 6'11"... 2006-07 through 2009-10. FWIW..in the team intro video clips being posted online by Athletics..Rizzuto, Healy and Flory all introduced themselves as a "shooting guard." Miller introduced himself as a "guard." And Brooks introduced himself as a "point guard." Neither Clark's nor Starks' videos have been published yet.
  8. Recruiting - 2019

    Ray Miller is a grad transfer..so his scholly would also free up after the 18-19 season.
  9. Recruiting - 2018

    If I had to guess now..this is where I'd be as well. I think the SG spot will be the best battle. Need a good scorer there. Clark showed flashes and will hopefully continue to improve..but it's always tough to be the ballhander and top offensive option. Campbell gives you size and defense at the wing..but obviously isn't a go-to offensive threat. It sounds like Lulka might be able to spread the floor a bit..which is something we haven't really seen from the PF spot consistently since Brent Wilson.
  10. University announced the hiring of Katie Rowan..current Wagner HC, former UAlbany asst, and former Cuse/Bethlehem standout. http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211719072 Great resume..but surprised they didn't stick with the current interim. Guess I just assumed they would after her being the assistant/associate HC for a number of years and then leading the team to the conference title game as the interim. Kinda odd. Either way.. welcome Coach Rowan.
  11. Even if that's the reasoning..the tax law was signed nearly half a year ago. We're not the only institution this applies to. Way past time to have figured this thing out.
  12. Recruiting - 2018

    Looks like we have an offer out to Jeremiah Starks. JUCO combo guard..seems like three years of eligibility after redshirting his first year due to injury. 6'2" 190lbs. Shot 40% from three..80% from the line. Averaged 14.4ppg on the year..and 18.5ppg during his last 12 games.
  13. Because they moved Hopkins up to the 2 seed..shifting just about everyone down. Why? You got me.
  14. Actually..looks like I could've just checked out what @LaxFilmRoom is doing right now. He has a Cornell win (and Duke over Boston) giving us a 57% chance of grabbing at least a 2 seed. So..go Big Red!
  15. That's from yesterday. Their update this morning moves us down to the 6 seed.
