  1. I was there for most of it. Started out slow. But ended up playing pretty well. Different style of basketball . It's faster but sometimes they are out of control. Neely is going to be a star. Hutcheson hit more 3's in this game then he did all last season. I just don't see a ton of playing time for him if this team is any good. I am hoping for a good year. But .500 would be acceptable. We MAY start out a little slow on the year but hopefully come around during conference play . This is probably the deepest, on paper, America East Conference we have seen in a long time.
  2. A couple of "secret" scrimmage dates: 10/23 at Saint Joseph’s; 10/30 vs. Canisius
  3. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/college-basketball-rankings-countdown-of-every-team-begins-with-nos-358-201-for-the-2021-22-season/amp/?__twitter_impression=true Cbs released their rankings. 268. UAlbany: The Great Danes enter as a bottom-four team in the America East, but it could well be the last time that ever happens under first-year coach Dwayne Killings, who knows the area well and hired a strong staff
  4. Absolutely huge. It's almost impossible to get 6'9 guys in this league with the skill he has. Killings keeps saying he is building something special. I believe him .
  5. While I understand the above post I would mildly disagree. These are either amatuer (kids) or adults that want to be paid for their image and likeness. Can't have it both ways. At 18 you are an adult, and should be treated as such. If you "suck" , then you should be told that. Now I'm not advocating threats or things of that nature but if an "adult" does not live up to expectations I do believe a person should have the right to state as such.
  6. An absolute joke. Coach should be fired at half time. Not an over reaction . A joke . Dropped my season tickets and won't return until he is fired.
  7. Not going to create another thread for this but found it very interesting. I had no idea how small Albanys basketball budget was . Around 1.8 million . Hartfords budget was around 2.3 million (and they are going D3). Very disconcerting. I understand we are a state school but if we don't get the money for resources we will never be any good.

  8. He will get cheered. Played very well for us last year and was a model student. Look forward to the season.
  9. Don't normally post articles but this is very interesting. Local reporter reaching out to uncommitted recruits. Hopefully this guy can coach because he looks like he can recruit. https://dailygazette.com/2021/08/19/recruiting-takes-shape-for-ualbany-mens-basketball-program/
  10. I have not. Was going to wait until I get an email or something. Disaster.
  11. Not going to start a new thread for this however Justin Neeley is going to be a star. I have been fortunate to see him play a little bit this summer. Wow. Very gifted. Works really hard. Not sure he will stay 4 years . But enjoy him while we can.
  12. https://twitter.com/CapEliteAgency/status/1417815985235578881?s=20 On several Twitter accounts. Quick search found this tweet.
  13. I know nothing about this. No details, ect. However, the UA President appears to be very sharp and a supporter of UA Athletics. If this is the case and I were he, I would be furious. There is no excuse for this . Hopefully there is more to the story, hopefully.
  14. Yes, they are typically money games. I'm not sure how much but I would love to see 1 or 2 more.
  15. As someone who had his doubts, I think Coach Killings has done an outstanding job. If fact I can't think of anything he can improve on YET. Haha. He has engaged the community, recruited well, social media has exploded. I am impressed and look forward to the season.
  16. Looks like the game will continue. Hopefully we did not fold to them. www.timesunion.com/sports/article/Siena-UAlbany-men-s-basketball-rivalry-looking-16242682.php?IPID=Times-Union-HP-CP-Spotlight#photo-20526953
  17. It was pretty good. Justin Neely attended the zoom call from the gym. That guy appears to be a gym rat. He is going to be very very good. Hopefully he stays a while but I have a feeling he will be terrific.
  18. For those who did not know both Doles and Hutcheson are returning. Good news as both have played the 4 before.
  19. Probably no shot. But I like the offer. Would be interesting if he could ever get a couple guys like this to commit together. Will never happen but I do like the work put in right now to at least get our name out there .
  20. I keep seeing people post that Kellon Taylor is returning? (I saw it here and other sites) I dont see that anywhere. Does anyone know that for sure? Or is that just a guess.
