  1. That would be the best and safest route, 14 AE games. Not sure if we heard how the NCAA tourney would be run. If bracketed as usual with automatic qualifiers and some at-large teams, then the only way to the tourney is to win the AE as the low-level competition in the AE would never produce an at-large bid for UA if they lost an AE final even if they were 14-2.
  2. Seems where the young'ins are, Covid is optional like Jacksonville and South Beach. See it on the news all the time. My mom and also my sister and her fiance actually live in Bonita Springs up the road from you.
  3. Good to see others leaving the cold, high tax state of NY as I did in 2017 although I chose NC. I visit FL often due to family there, but always felt that it is a screwed up state and wouldn't want to live there, lol. No one is a fan of the governor, can say that about Cuomo too I guess. Was in Jacksonville in Nov for daughters graduation and masks and social distancing is very optional. A little better in Naples area where my mother is due to more senior population there. Good luck Eli. Won't get live reports from SEFCU from you anymore (post Covid) or how much snow was piling up!
  4. Almost 60% from the floor, but poor from three. Having athletes out there is helping the offense. I just think we will not see many minutes fron Hank, Shaffer, Hutch, Lulka, and even Healy for rest of the season. CB is shortening the bench and the athletes(Rizzuto included with his hustle and motor) are playing well together. Is Anderson hurt? Amica still has head issue?
  5. I just saw a headline on the Times Union site that says Antonio Rizzuto was finally named as the lone captain after six games into the season. I don't have access to the whole article. I understand the start of the season was delayed but naming a captain could have been done before Christmas. Surprised there wasn't the usual 3 or 4, Healy and Lulka come to mind but often injured. Or the senior, Jo Jo Anderson was a possibility. Of course we have complained over the past few years that the captains seem to be very quiet, never get in anyone's face, or show impressive leadership. Thoughts?
  6. Good synopsis. It's true, hard to only blame the players who appear to be trying hard but may be over recruited or poorly coached or in the wrong system. I have said before, the coaching staff, all CB disciples, are not adding anything to the program right now. We all loved Jon Iati when he played and I assume he would like to be a head coach soon but who would call on him to run a program right now? He would be better leaving to be an asst elsewhere in a winning program and get a shot in a couple years. If Benson ever fires CB someday, the whole staff is gone too if I was the new coach w
  7. I also plan my day around watching the Danes play and have no idea why I even bother. The offense is just plain horrid. The rebounding is an issue without Hank or Lulka playing much who give us bulk inside. The new fellas are more athletic but don't seem to use it to crash the boards, Doles is soft inside. Kelly gets inside nicely but if it's shut off, he needs to hit jumpers but last night he could not. Horton, Taylor, and Champion shows flashes but not often enough. JoJo getting less time, should Amica play some when healthy to see what he has for next year?Hutch and Shaffer give us no
  8. Can't keep a lead late and close it out. Didn't think they played badly but should have won.
  9. I still struggle with who is who on the court cause CB is playing so many new guys, lol. No inside game as usual. No shot blocker inside, as usual.
  10. The pandemic does not affect free throw shooting. Can practice all by yourself with plenty of social distance.
  11. I agree, Hutch and Shafer are heading for the end of the pine at this rate. Are the newbies just quicker and faster and more athletic than them? Obviously. And as for Healy and Lulka, I wish nothing but the best for them to recover quickly but "injured" has become their middle name over the past year. Can't help the team and certainly may losing PT if they do return while others may rise to the top of the rotation.
  12. Well, I will eat crow after that valiant effort, at least till tomorrows game. Nice job taking advantage of some suspect play by UVM.
  13. Wow, some semblance of an offense. Who are these impostors, lol.
  14. Gonna be a long season boys and girls. Don't shoot the messenger, but we have Div 2 talent. Bricks from the line, bricks from three, playing no height inside. Doesn't it seem odd CB is playing mostly the new transfers and grad students. What does that say about the talent he recruited a few years ago. Not good enough to beat out new guys after years in the program? Uggg.
  15. Yes sir. Start out like gang busters then inconsistency. Anderson 3 straight threes, no scoring rest of game. Lulka doesn't play 2nd half, status unknown. Healy out due to hip. Sounds like last seasons health issue. Shaffer and Hutch give a couple of good plays per game, that's it, strictly role players. Doles, Champion, Horton, too soon to tell but I will hazzard a guess at role players, losing PT as bench shortens. I do like Kelly who gave a spark and can get to the hoop, and Taylor has potential to get us 12-15 per game. Rizzuto struggled to score today, defense ok but 2 fouls in 1
  16. Three veterans, Healy 1 of 9, Anderson 2 of 8, Rizzuto 3 of 10. Need better play from those guys as the newbies get acclimated.
  17. Let this one slip away, can't close it out. By the way, I am old school, I like the clean-cut Healy better than this new look, both appearance and his game. Was brutal shooting today. Need him to get back into form.
  18. Thought I would start the first game thread of the 2020-21 season. Wasn't sure we would get here and if I didn't jinx us, season tipoff 4PM Saturday!
  19. The Ivy League has just cancelled all winter sports. I know the Ivies go to the beat of a different drum than other conferences but it's never a good sign and that others may follow.
  20. Is surprising isn't it. But he had 6 goals, only 1 assist and 10 TO's in regular play. Not Fields numbers especially the lack of assists.
  21. Chaos were winless in regular play but are turning it up in playoffs. Co-insides with the benching of Connor Fields who was ineffective and putting Miles Thompson in.
  22. Oh well, par for the course, live lax cancelled due to lightening in Utah. You just can't win these days.
