    Stretch Internet to Become America East’s New Digital Network Partner


    BOSTON – The America East Conference announced today a partnership with Stretch Internet to become the conference’s new digital network platform provider starting in July. The agreement commences with the 2017-18 academic year and will run through 2020-21.

    “We are excited to partner with Stretch Internet on the next iteration of our digital network, taking AmericaEast.TV to the next level,” said America East Commissioner, Amy Huchthausen. “Our member institutions produce hundreds of high-quality live events each year and Stretch’s dynamic platform will provide fans with a comprehensive viewing experience that will serve as the perfect complement to ‘The AE on ESPN3’. With Stretch’s enhancements to AmericaEast.TV, these two channels will ensure America East stays at the forefront of live video production for years to come.”

    Stretch Internet will provide a first-class viewing experience to America East fans with 1080p HD streaming across all computers, phones, tables and major OTT platforms, including Roku and Apple TV.

    A message from head coach Scott Marr:

    I need your help for the next 2 weeks. Coach Matt Painter is representing Niemann Pick Type C in the ESPN Infiniti Coach Challenge. If he wins $100,000 will be donated to help find a cure for kids like JP who are battling this horrible disease. Coach Painter got involved with this challenge because he is friends with the Smith Family who lost 3 of their 4 children to this nasty disease. Coach Painter came in second last year, we need your help to share with your friends to vote everyday. Yes you have to create an ESPN account but I promise you that you won't receive any junk mail. Please do this today, vote everyday until March 11th. Only 500 children suffer from this disease so we need everyone's help. Go to votemattpainter.com and vote everyday and share for JP!

  5. Syracuse loses Mellen and Forkin to season-ending injuries

    Syracuse All-American defenseman Nick Mellen will undergo season-ending surgery, head coach John Desko said Thursday. Mellen was the only returning defenseman from last season’s Atlantic Coast Conference tournament-winning team due to the graduation of stalwarts Brandon Mullins and Jay McDermott. The West Genesee (New York) High School graduate was expected to cover the best team’s offensive player in most games, Desko said.

    The No. 5 Orange (1-0) now need to find its way with patchwork defensive line with Marcus Cunningham, last year’s fourth defender; Tyson Bomberry, who appeared in four total games prior to this season; and Scott Firman, a converted longstick midfielder. Freshman Nick DiPietro and redshirt freshman Andrew Helmer also played a lot defensively against Siena.

    Last season, the 5-foot-9, 178-pound Mellen finished third on the team in groundballs (38) and tied for second in caused turnovers (14).

    “There’s definitely always struggles when Mellen is out of the lineup,” Bomberry said. “He’s such a great player with his feet, just an all-around player.”
