  1. 16 - Navy 24 - ?? no clue 30 - Louisiana Lafayette 44 - UAB There are a few on there I can't get 8 and 25
  2. According to their website UMBC is 2-3, not 0-5 http://www.umbcretrievers.com/sports/mlacrosse/schedule.asp
  3. Actually that is 3 consecutive one goal losses (ND, Delaware, UMASS)
  4. The kid's name is Tim Beinert (not Reinert) so that is probably why you couldn't find anything on him.
  5. Unless Hartford wins both games here are the possible scenarios if Albany beats BU Scenario 1 #2 Albany 10-6 (3-1 vs other teams involved) #3 Vermont 10-6 (2-2 vs other teams involved) #4 Hartford 10-6 (1-3 vs other teams involved) Scenario 2 #2 Albany 10-6 #3 Vermont 10-6 ? Hartford 9-7 Scenario 3 #2 Hartford 10-6 (beats UMBC giving them the tiebreaker) #3 Albany 10-6 ? Vermont 9-7
  6. "Recruiting is going very well! Coach O’Donnell is in Iowa as I am typing this update. We are recruiting three student-athletes in the 2009 class that all play for the Martin Brothers AAU Program. This is the same program that Brent Wilson and Brian Lillis played for on the AAU circuit. We are hoping to get all three. The three young men that we signed as part of our 2008 recruiting class are all playing very good basketball this year. All three love the game and spend a lot of time in the gym! We are still recruiting for next year as we are always trying to improve our program. We could use a guy that can consistently score in the low post. That is an area where we need some improvement. We need a guy that can consistently score or get fouled in the paint!" Nate Hutcheson would be one of the guys we have heard Albany is recruiting who plays for Martin Brothers. I wonder who the other 2 guys are.
  7. I was messing around on the internet and came across this. http://www.wissports.net/sports/hoopsb/art...4&sportID=1 By Mark Miller Wishoops.net Editor Scholarship offers continue to pour in for one of Wisconsin’s fastest rising members of the class of 2009. Germantown forward Ben Averkamp received an offer from new Saint Louis University coach Rick Majerus recently, adding the Billikens’ offer to those previously received from UW-Green Bay and UW-Milwaukee. Other schools showing strong interest in Averkamp include Albany, Iowa State, Loyola (Chicago), Northwestern, Northern Iowa and William and Mary. The 6-foot-7 Averkamp, currently ranked No. 4 among state prospects in the junior class, took an unofficial visit to Saint Louis last week. He previously took unofficial visits to Iowa State, UW-Green Bay and UW-Milwaukee. “At this point, it’s very exciting for our whole program to follow the recruiting interest in Ben,” Germantown coach Steve Showalter said. “To have college coaches sitting in our gym watching one of our players is tremendous when you think of where our program was just a few years ago.” Germantown finished 19-4 overall and won the North Shore Conference title with a 12-2 mark last season, earning the school’s first North Shore title. Averkamp played a huge role in the Warhawks’ success, averaging 12 points and nine rebounds per game en route to second-team all-league honors. Averkamp is a long, rangy forward with outstanding shooting, passing and ball handling skills. He has grown from 6-6 at the start of last season to 6-7 with more growth projected. “He’s a legitimate 6-7 and I think he has a little more growth in him yet,” Showalter said. “Fundamentally, he’s so solid that the college coaches believe they can work with him.” A 4.0 student who plans to major in pre-med in college, Averkamp is at the core of a strong returning team at Germantown. Senior guard Rick Bowers and senior forward Zack Neumann also return to the Warhawks’ starting rotation while key reserve Nick Doedens also returns for Showalter, a former standout player under Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan at UW-Platteville. “Saint Louis has a lot to offer with the name recognition of Rick Majerus,” Showalter said. “In my opinion, I think were will be a lot more offers coming down the road a bit for Ben.”

  9. Not much info here, but it's always nice to see an Albany recruit mentioned. MidStateHoops.com Apical Echelon Power Performers Class of 2008 #24 PF Jake Lindors Addison (IL) Driscoll Rising Stars 6'9" 200 SIGNED TO ALBANY The Albany recruit is averaging better than 25 points and 11 rebounds. http://www.midstatehoops.com/articles/2008/2008mid.html
  10. If you go to this site and click on the list by school option you can see all the Albany recruits for either 07/08 or 08/09 http://www.laxpower.com/common/recruits.php
  11. If we are playing teams with no true center I think the starting lineup should be: PG: Martin SG: Hastings SF: Lillis PF: Wilson C: Connolly
  12. Actually I think his season starts this Friday according to the link. http://www.zanesvilletimesrecorder.com/app...mp;sport=sport2
  13. Siggers to play in Denmark http://blogs.timesunion.com/collegesports/?cat=6
  14. Agreed. Was the video the first reference to NC State? That is quite the coup if we beat them to the punch..... No-- Kent State I think you are right that he meant Kent State since I never heard NC State as a school of interest before. He definitely says North Carolina State in the video though.
  15. Here are a couple of comments I found about Aronhalt. http://www.hoopville.net/column/kasiecki.asp?EntryID=17472 The third day of action at the Reebok Summer Championships...One of the top sleepers we observed today was 6-4 G/F Logan Aronhalt (Zanesville, Ohio), who played for Team CBIZ. Aronhalt demonstrated excellent shooting touch from the outside. He also has the physical strength to play on the interior as well as very good leaping ability. He plays with a great deal of intensity and is very aggressive on defense. http://www.hoopville.net/column/kasiecki.asp?EntryID=17472 The second annual King James Shooting Stars Classic ...Logan Aronhalt (6'4" Jr. SG-SF, Zanesville (OH) High) This well-built wing impressed in a 27-point outing, hitting plenty of shots including a few from well behind the three-point line. He's a plus athlete and will post up defenders to use his strength to score inside. Mid-major prospect. Jake Linfors (6'9" Jr. PF, Addison (IL) Driscoll Catholic HS) Although he'll do some work inside, he spent a good deal of time trying to operate on the perimeter at the offensive end. He has range to the three-point line, though his shots weren't falling in his team's elimination game, and he also struggled on some close shots. He will get some rebounds and has good size to play inside at the mid-major level.
  16. Here is another short article about Lindfors selecting Albany Lindfors Is In The Fold September 23, 2007 11:30 P.M. CST Jake Lindfors, the 6'9 forward from Driscoll Catholic High School in Addison, IL, has verbally committed to the University of Albany. Lindfors chose Albany over scholarship offers from Illinois State, Western Illinois, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Florida Gulf Coast. Both Lindfors and Mike Weinstein (Lindfors' AAU coach) indicated that all of these schools did an outstanding job of recruiting Lindfors. What is a bit unusual about Lindfors' commitment is that he committed to Albany despite the fact that his most recent official campus visit was to Illinois State (he officially visited Albany just prior to that). In the end, however, the fact that Albany was in on Lindfors from the beginning, as they were one of the first schools to offer him a scholarship, ended up being a huge factor in his decision. That, and the fact that Albany has recently enjoyed huge success on the hardwood, as they have made the NCAA tournament the past two seasons, enabled them to close the deal. While Lindfors will in all likelihood spend most of his time at the 4 spot in college, we actually see him as a combo 3/4 man with good offensive versatility. He has the ability to either post up and go to war inside, or face up and consistently knock down shots from beyond the arc. Lindfors became an extremely hot recruiting commodity over the past few weeks and especially saw his stock soar after a most solid performance at the 17-Under National AAU Championships in Orlando with his 17-Under Rising Stars Gold AAU team. With Lindfors' commitment, he becomes the sixth member of the Rising Stars program to commit to play college basketball at either a D1 or D2 school. http://www.ilprepbullseye.com/page46.html
  17. Plus we don't know the status of Gilliam or Raffa at this point. They can still decide to go elsewhere.
  18. Looks like Lindfors has strong interest in Albany. He seems like a good fit considering what Coach Brown said they were focusing on with the last scholly for 2008 ("Our priority for the 2008 class is replacing Brent Wilson. We need a power forward that can stretch the defense with his perimeter shooting. Having two commitments in place will allow us to really focus on bringing in a talented 4 man"). http://www.midstatehoops.com/articles/2007/lindfors.html 6'9" 210 lbs Jake Lindfors was first introduced to the world by MSH in January of 2007. He was a sleeper who saw little college attention at the time. Since then, the Addision Driscoll forward has been garnering offers and getting a lot of attention from collegiate level programs after a solid showing on the AAU circuit with Rising Stars. Albany, Eastern Illinois, and Western Illinois have all offered scholarships to Jake. In addition, Illinois State and Eastern Kentucky are extremely involved in his recruitment. "I like ISU and their new head coach," stated Lindfors. "He likes me a lot and thinks I am very underappreciated as a recruit." Albany seems to be the silent leader at the current point in time. "They've (Albany) made me their top priority. They said that'll I'll play as a freshman and I like that a lot." Lindfors has stated that he will make a decision before the season begins. http://www.midstatehoops.com/players/profi...e_lindfors.html
  19. The few comments I read about him say he's a "lights out" shooter, which coincides with Coach Brown's comment about looking for a perimeter scorer to complete the recruiting class for this year. "Moores is an extremely heady point guard who can flat stroke if left alone." "Robert Moores, who redshirted last year, is a 6’2”, 175 lb guard from Chicago. Moores is a savvy point who can shoot the lights out."

  21. I think this site is where the 138 ranking came from. http://www.geocities.com/classof07bbrankings/my_page.html
  22. WOW! Tough blow for Vermont. Hopefully it's nothing serious that is causing him to leave.
  23. What if the financial aid is through the federal government and not from the University itself?
  24. Bona board reporting that Will Brown is on campus and has been offered the job, he has until Monday to decide. Now the million dollar question will McElroy step up to the plate and give Brown a nice raise. My guess is he does.. Now if Will is the front runner for the Iona job,( and I don't think he will be) all bets are off, contrary to what some of you think here, the Iona job is considerably better job than Bona and a step up from the Albany job. Of course if McElroy is smart he puts a buy out clause in the raise to stop Will from even thinking about other mid Major jobs So do you think this means that this could possibly be resolved by Monday? Bona is giving him until Monday to decide. McElroy will most likely offer a raise and try to keep him. So it seems at that point Brown could either A) Take the Bona job B ) Decline Bona job and accept a new UA contract C) Decline Bona, decline new UA offer and continue to persue other options (Iona, etc.) To me option C would seem pretty risky at this point. From what I'm reading the Iona job will have more than a few high quality candidates for the job. Would it be worth it to pass over the sure thing with option A or B for the uncertainty of option C? I don't know. I'm just hoping this gets resolved sooner rather than later whatever the outcome (crossing fingers for option b ).
  25. That didn't even cross my mind. It's not like I'm divulging any inside info or anything. I'll email him again though and let him know that I posted his response on this site. I hope he doesn't mind as I didn't think it would be a big deal.
