  1. This is not accurate. We were in the AE Championship game in 2017. It's the year we opened with a win at Penn State and David Nichols set the scoring record in the opening round tournament game against Hartford.
  2. I think at least part of the problem going into a season with no preseason or scrimmages is that our returning perimeter players (Healy, Rizzuto, Hutch) are basically catch and shoot guys. The guys who are running the offense and creating are all "new". I'm considering Jojo Anderson "new" because he hardly played last year with injuries. I think our best backcourt is Anderson, Horton and Kelly. They can all hit outside shots and create off the dribble. If you combine them with Taylor who can post up a little, you can do somethings. If Lulka is out for a while, I don't know what you
  3. Amica is the least of my concerns. Last year we didn't have any guards who could create. This year we have plenty but have no presence inside on defense. Still, Kelly, Horton and Taylor are well worth watching. I just don't see how we can keep playing Taylor at the 5 spot so much with basically 4 other guards or small forwards.
  4. I hate to disagree with you but I'm going to. I think that's a little misleading. Both Champion and Jojo Anderson had double-digit scoring season at Loyola and NAU. Champion had two double-digit scoring seasons before getting injured last year. One of the encouraging thing I saw from the UMBC games is that we have a least a glimmer of inside scoring. Taylor is a tough match-up for a lot of bigs and Lulka looked more like his freshman year.
  5. I like the Doles and Lulka frontcourt. I also like Sam Shafer but I don't know how much more you can experiment with him at the 4 spot. It's like Horvath is shooting over a chair when he catches it down low.
  6. Kellon going coast to coast is fun. I like the more aggressive Jojo on the drive too.
  7. Was thinking the same thing. I'm sure they wanted Healy and Kelly on the floor and Rizzuto had a great game but the last trip could have used a PG. A couple of obvious defensive lapses that you don't usually see from a Will Brown team. Eight new guys playing their first game will probably give you that. I've been wanting to see Lulka fired up or pissed off or showing some emotion and I saw that tonight. Not sure how those really small lineups are going to fair. I thought we had our lunch eaten in the post tonight (rebounds and points.) Being able to bring Rizzuto, Horton, H
  8. UMBC started with an 8 point loss to Georgetown and then have won 4 straight. Tough way to start conference, UMBC was picked second in the conference and have played a handful of games while we've played zip. Then it's off to preseason #1 Vermont.
  9. I've been skeptical about this year and remain so. Not skeptical about the team but about there being a season. Last week Coach K was questioning playing and travelling when public health officials are telling people not to travel. In tonight's Florida - Florida State game Keyonte Johnson collapsed and was taken to the hospital. He had tested positive for Covid earlier this year. Younger people tend to recover quickly but have been known to have heart issues after they recover. I don't often agree with Rick Pitino but he's recommended changing March Madness into May Madness. He's hop
  10. My tree is coming from the same place it does every year. A big box in my attic.
  11. Maybe if there's an intersquad scrimmage they can stream it. I'd totally watch it.
  12. Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving in all this current weirdness. Remember to box out around the dessert table and maybe, just maybe, be able to watch a little college basketball.
  13. With no fresh games, I thought I offer this throwback to 2008. Albany 66 Columbia 49 Leading scoring was.... any guesses? keep guessing... Jerel Hastings with 15 points. I know, I never would have guessed it either. Weirdest thing from the box score - a team with Anthony Raffa, Logan Aronhalt and Billy Allen didn't hit a single three pointer in this game. The whole team went 0-11 from three. VISITORS: ALBANY 3-2 TOT-FG 3-PT REBOUNDS ## Player Name FG-FGA FG-FGA FT-FTA OF DE
  14. Not optimistic about seeing many games and never really was. In the spring of 2020, some friends who work at a health care provider told me their headquarters would be remote until summer of 2021. That's when life would possibly begin to resemble "normal." If Covid were a plumbing issue, I would listen to plumbers. If Covid were a legal issue, I would listen to lawyers. But it's a health issue so I've listened to people in the health care industry. I also had a client who is younger than me (earlier 40s with no previous health conditions) get Covid. They were in a coma for a month, hospi
  15. Thanks for posting that. It felt good to listen to some basketball talk. I'll be curious to see where Lulka plays if we get some games in this year. From out recruiting, it almost looks like they'll play him at the center spot and rotate with Hank.
  16. Sadly, I agree. Whenever I see the odds on who's going to win a game, I think the odds should be if there's going to be a game instead. Anyway, both the men and women were picked fourth in the preseason poll yesterday and Cam Healy was all-conference.
  17. Realized the upgrade left the registration process on the most relaxed setting. I've since tightened things up and booted some "members."
  18. I haven't heard that story/rumor but it wouldn't surprise me. I haven't been optimistic we'll be seeing games this winter but I'll happily be wrong. It's looking more and more like we're in for a long winter.
  19. I don't know who Last Word on Sports is, but they pick us second in the AE. They also love Jarvis Doles who they pick as the AE sixth man of the year. https://lastwordonsports.com/basketball/2020/10/23/2020-21-america-east-basketball-preview/
  20. You guys don't miss a trick. Eli wasn't talking about you cwdickens. A spammer slipped through and posted some stuff. I banned their account. Thanks for the heads-up!
  21. Offer out to Latik Murphy, a JUCO guard originally from Chicago.
  22. Syracuse will probably intentionally miss the playoffs just to avoid playing in Albany.
  23. Thanks for the reminder. I gotta run some updates.
