2017-18 Season

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

One of the best TEAM possessions I have ever seen.

I saw this on twitter...that was pure mastery and very rare at any level of basketball. That was beautiful!

 

 

The most amazing thing to me was the timing of the play. The slow down at the beginning to start at just the right moment, then pass after pass only to have the dunk with only 1 second left on the shot clock. How many teams would have stopped the movement to get a shot off with 5 seconds left.

 

Just amazing. I know it is "mastery" and I doubt we will see that talent level at UA, but I would like to see the team make some more passes and get the defense more on their toes.

 

 

Oddly enough, there was a real similar type of play I felt a few weeks ago...can't remember who, drove into the paint, kicked to the right corner, that kid drove to the baseline and kicked to a trailing Cremo for a made 3 right in front of Brown. It was beautiful, you could see it develop.

I probably shouldn't post this because it'll probably jinx him, but after 24 games, I believe that Stire is 23-1 on the opening tip...

I thought I was the only one that noticed that. I have watched every game on tv/computer except Dartmouth (to cheap to pay Ivy league $9.95) and Greg wins the tip easily including guys much taller and longer.

Half-season summary at rundexball.com

 

Two things struck me

 

Despite all the talk about it earlier, Albany actually LEADS the league in blocks

 

The bench PT is worse than anyone mentioned, ranked 350 out of 351 teams

Come tournament time, the starting five are either going to be the BEST conditioned athletes in the country, or be so burned out they lose to the Lady Danes by 40 in a warm up scrimmage.

Other then Foster, we have no reliable bench.

We have a talented bench, and I would love to see them play more, but I do trust Brown that they aren't reliable.

 

I do wish he played them more to rest the team. Might we have had the juice to win a couple more games if the starters had fresher legs down the stretch? I'm thinking the Hartford loss in particular. We made the frantic come back, then ran out of juice.

Just looked at the updated standings and where we are. Three of our losses were not horrible. Hartford is having a solid season and caught us off guard. UVM is who they are. And UNH always gives us fits in Lundholm. It's the Bing game that ticks me off. No business losing to them as they stink. We win that game and we are 7-3 and tied for second and probably feeling good about a 2 seed.

Today we were driving through NC on I-40 and passed the exit for Durham and Chapel Hill. Sort of like I-90 and the Albany or Loudonville exit....sort of...maybe....just a little. And our hotel has ESPNU!!

Ha! Ive lived in both places. While the significance of the I-40 exit was obvious, the I-90 thing never occurred to me in 8 years in the Capital District.

That Iona win doesn't look so great anymore after tonight... Talk about an RPI killer

 

Iona has been weird lately. Deyshonee Much, their third leading scorer, had to be separated from their head coach after an altercation after the Monmouth game. Much hasn't played since.

 

That said, nice win by Siena tonight.
