  1. You can check out his stats for the NIKE Peach Jam here: http://www.nikeedge.com/pj-stats/17u_stats.php Illinois Warriors #25 Little, Howard
  2. For some reason Scout and Rivals don't have any info on Howard Little so I thought I would look at the guys ranked right before and after him to get an idea of what caliber of player he is. I took a look at the 2 guys ranked right ahead of him and the 2 guys right after him. Here is how Scout and Rivals had them rated: #37) Jeff Robinson - 4 stars on Scout, 3 stars on Rivals - Committed to Memphis #38) James Anderson - 4 stars on Scout, 4 stars on Rivals - Offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Oklahoma and Kansas #39) Howard Little - no info on either Scout or Rivals - Verbal to Albany #40) Lance Storrs - 3 stars on Scout, 3 stars on Rivals - Committed to Georgia Tech #41) Jordan Crawford - 3 stars on Scout, not listed on Rivals - Offer from Xavier I know the ratings don't really mean that much, but it seems like he is in some pretty good company.
  3. Not sure what type of competition he was going up against, but his stats were pretty damn good regardless of who they played. 15.9 PPG 7.1 RPG 8.6 APG 3.3 SPG 0.5 BPG 62% FG 88% FT 57% 3ptFG Plus they have him listed at 6'0 195 lbs. I think Ambrose is listed at 6'0 205 lbs. They must be pretty strong dudes to be about 200 lbs at 6'0. Plus the scouting reports say they both can play above the rim. I can't help but get excited about these guys. http://www.maxpreps.com/FanPages/Player.mx...ac-685844dbda01
  4. 15346[/snapback] Any of the other Albany recruits on their list? Ambrose, Little, Gifford, etc.
  5. Topic: How good is Tim Ambrose? (from HoopsUSA) Posted by BigJ on 05/22/2006 09:37:52 AM 4204 Everyone says that he is the most explosive guard that theyve ever seen but he doesnt get the recognition. He plays for a school called Our Savior New American and is constantly dropping big buckets against the best competition. He has a game like Iverson but can jump out of the gym. I would like to know what college is he going to. I'm also wondering if someone can get him into the most recognizable camps because Rick Pitino and any other D1 coach with common sense should take a look at this kid. He scored 27 points on Wayne Ellington who is supposed to be the #1 guard in the country. Posted by gametime on 05/28/2006 12:00:29 PM 4213 Timmy Ambrose is the real deal. I have had the pleasure of watching him play several times and speaking with him several times. He is above average in every aspect of the game. I know that several high major colleges have shown interest( St. Johns, UMass, etc.). Good luck to this classy young man wherever he ends up. King James Shooting Stars Classic Recap Tim Ambrose (6'2" Sr. SG, Centereach (NY) Our Savior New American) Well-built guard is very athletic and really knows how to score the ball. He's great at driving and finishing, while also getting some transition baskets, going for 32 points in one game. High-major minus prospect may prep next year, as he still needs a qualifying test score.
  6. I ran across this article while surfing the web. It speaks very highly of Lee McElroy and what he has done for Albany athletics. Also a blurb in there on Carl Ross and how in past years he wouldn't have even been an option for Albany. http://albany.bizjournals.com/albany/stori...us1.html?page=1 The 'sizzle' lingers UAlbany administrators had said that just getting to the NCAA basketball tournament was reward enough for the team, especially considering it has been in Division I only since 1999-2000. But McElroy said the way UAlbany lost to Connecticut--ahead by 12 points in the second half before falling 72-59--has made all the difference. "I've never seen a situation where you lose a game and it has such a positive impact on the institution and our program," he said. Lose that game by 40 points, as 16th-seeded teams like UAlbany frequently do to top seeds in the NCAA tournament, and UAlbany's appearance "wouldn't have had any significance," McElroy said. "No one would have cared. We would have been back to square one." As it is, the program continues to "sizzle" because of the NCAA tournament experience, McElroy said. Gov. George Pataki honored the basketball team at the Executive Mansion in recognition of the squad becoming the first State University of New York team to ever make the Division I men's tournament. Pataki noted that in his 11-plus years as governor, he'd honored only three sports teams at the mansion: the New York Giants when they moved their training camp to UAlbany, the 2003 Syracuse University national basketball champions and UAlbany's 2006 squad. UAlbany coaches are getting access to recruits they did not have before this basketball season. The team beat out Nebraska for Carl Ross, a junior college transfer from San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, Calif., in April. "There's no way before that [NCAA tournament appearance] happened that he would even be talking to us; we wouldn't have been able to contact him," McElroy said. Now, the trick is to parlay the athletic success into more private support for the program from boosters and to get a real football stadium built on campus, McElroy said. Plans call for a 10,000-seat stadium for a program that has begun offering what will eventually be 30 athletic scholarships.

  8. Tim Ambrose: An Exciting Player To Watch -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mike Sullivan NewYorkInsider.com Jun 1, 2006 Tim Ambrose is a delight to watch. The Our Savior New American guard is an athletic wonder who can sky over bigger bodies despite not being more than 6-foot tall. Ambrose is expected to compete this summer with the New York Elite ... Tim Ambrose is a delight to watch. He is an athletic guard who can dazzle a defender with his speed, strength or athletic skills. Ambrose, a 6-foot 2007 recruit played last season at Our Savior New American in Centereach, N.Y. It's likely that Tim will be at a prep school this Fall. Ambrose already has some college offers on the table. "Albany, Stony Brook, and Fordham have offered," Ambrose said in our last conversation. "But I am not sure what I will do." The staff of the New York Elite indicate that Tim is still open and searching for a prep school. Ambrose stated recently that he is interested in Notre Dame Prep, Stoneridge, and Patterson. Tim polished his game as a senior this past year under OSNA head coach Ron Stelzer. Earlier in the season there was some interest from schools like Southern Cal, St. John's, Georgetown, Clemson, and Fairfield. But no offers were made. Ambrose must take care of business in the classroom. As he accomplishes this, it's likely many more division one schools will jump aboard to recruit this exciting athlete.
  9. http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=2170121 Looks like he may be going to prep school like Howard Little.
  10. I take Tony's prognostications about UAlbany with a grain of salt, and my diet restrictions don't allow for extra sodium. I just remember how he predicted that VCU would "wipe the floor" with UAlbany and that we would be destroyed by UConn. I'm just happy our team just went out and did its thing, particularly the last part of the season when it counts the most. 14756[/snapback] Read the rule carefully fella's; Jamar must be headed to GRADUATE school to transfer in a fifth year. He, as I understand, did not graduate this year. The rule does not affect him. 14761[/snapback] Yeah, I was just assuming he had graduated without really confirming that. Sorry to get everyone all excited over nothing. My bad.
  11. Kid seems like a pretty darn good athlete. Again though, unless he decides to only play hoops (which seems highly unlikely) it looks like this is a long shot. http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=ri...tory_recruiting http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=ri...tory_recruiting http://www.oskaloosaherald.com/sports/loca..._135142537.html http://www.statsandgo.com/sports/basketbal...AthleteID=32877
  12. According to scout he played Safety and WR in football (6-1, 190 lbs) http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=8&c=1&nid=2393375 I can't really see him turning down a scholarship to play football at Iowa in order to play hoops at Albany. Unless he doesn't want to play football anymore.
  13. I already said that I thought Iona was a better team this year. I just think that if they played Albany it would have been a competitive game. Probably decided by 6-8 points in Iona's favor. I think of a spanking as a 15-20 point loss which I don't think would have been the case. Maybe if Burtt and Soliver were both on fire, which again is unlikely due to their streakiness. Also, how about the fact that Siena beat Iona in their 2nd matchup last year. That must mean that Siena would have spanked Albany last year too. Oh wait, Siena played Albany and only won in OT. Hmmmm.....
  14. I live in Weschester. I went to Ione Prep. I watched Iona pretty much every time I had the chance. I have family that went there and root for Iona against anyone, except Albany. They were a better team this year (Burtt and Soliver are gone, what about next year?), but once you post that they would spank Albany you lose all credibility. Are you really a college basketball fan? Anyway, I think what it really comes down to is that you are pissed off that Albany is going to be on your level (MAAC) sooner rather than later. What does Iona, Siena, Manhattan really have to offer that Albany can't? Albany is an up and coming team and you are pissed about it. Siena had some strong teams in the past and will continue to be a competitive team every year. Do you really think that Albany will never get to that level or beyond in the near future?
  15. Just a little comparison from last year between the schools mentioned in the article: Albany W-L 21-11 RPI 119 America East RPI 27 Schedule Rank 245 UC Irvine W-L 16-13 RPI 168 Big West RPI 23 Schedule Rank 252 Colorado State W-L 15-14 RPI 151 Mountain West RPI 8 Schedule Rank 136 http://rpiratings.com/mensrpi.html
  16. I wouldn't mind bringing this guy in. Seems like he would continue to improve the teams overall talent and athletic ability. Scout had him rated as a 3 star recruit coming out of high school. I could see him getting some of Jordan's minutes now that he is gone (25 mpg last year). http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=447910
