  2. New York State 2015 Championship Standouts


    TD Ierlan, FO/Midfield, Victor, Jr. – Albany

    When the dust settled after the wild New York State tournament, Ierlan was arguably the most important of New York State’s many talented and Division I-bound face-off specialists. He was 19 of 22 against Jamesville-DeWitt, and then followed that up with a 20-of-28 performance against Manhasset, with 13 of those wins coming against Tyler Dunn, who was himself dominant at times against Long Island and Downstate competition on the way to the title game. Ierlan added a goal in the win over the Indians. He finished the season with a face-off percentage of 80.6 percent, according to SportsFive.net, winning 312 draws and losing only 76. He collected 212 groundballs along the way. If Victor has a chance to repeat next season, Ierlan will be instrumental in that success.

  3. SOURCES: UAlbany-Siena basketball close to reaching deal

    According to sources, the University at Albany and Siena men's basketball team is close to reaching an agreement to renew their annual basketball rivalry. The finalized contract is expected to be completed within the next week and a half.


    The previous contract had expired after this year's game, a December 13 matchup that saw the Great Danes down Siena 77-68 in front of a jam packed crowd at the Times Union Center.


    It's been a long road to a renewed rivalry for the two programs, which have squared off in a cross-town battle every year since 2001-02, with heated words and arguments from both sides since the start of this last college hoops season. But now, it seems at least, the two sides have worked through, at least some, of that animosity.


    The projected agreement will bring the matchup back to the Times Union Center twice in the next three seasons, but will, finally, allow UAlbany to host the rivalry game at SEFCU Arena, something Great Danes coach Will Brown has been fighting for consistently over the past few seasons. Brown has previously made it well known that he would not be opposed to ending the rivalry if a game was not played at SEFCU Arena.


    Both Brown and Siena coach Jimmy Patsos spoke at length about the future of the game in December and even discussed the option of a set date every season to make the usual-hectic job of scheduling the matchup that much easier. You can read that December article here.


    It's important to remember that nothing is officially official yet. UAlbany athletic director Mark Benson is in New Hampshire for the America East basketball coaches meetings and nothing is expected to be announced until, at least, the end of the week. Still, it's a step in the right rivalry direction.

    To the University at Albany and Albany Law School Communities:


    As we celebrate our recent class of graduates, we wanted to update you regarding the affiliation activity between the University at Albany and Albany Law School.


    We have continued to explore synergies on several fronts, making particularly exciting progress in the academic arena. It is clear to us that our students and faculties have much to gain from a stronger affiliation between our two schools.


    For example, we have recently received state approval for a new certificate in Health and Human Rights that will be available to all of our students. We are also working on new collaborative degree programs that we will launch over the next several months.


    As a result of this progress, we are pleased to announce that we have signed a Memorandum of Intent (MOI) articulating our shared intention to continue the exploration process. And we will work toward completing a mutually beneficial Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) by the end of October 2015. The MOA will capture the major tenets of the relationship and outline the specific goals of a deeper affiliation between the University at Albany and Albany Law School.


    The trustees, administration, and faculty of our two institutions will continue to be informed and involved as we spend the next five months shaping our collaboration. We will also continue to seek input from students and alumni as our discussions progress. We intend to communicate regularly, hold open town meetings, and respond to concerns.


    Since we believe many of you may have questions about this affiliation, we have developed a Frequently Asked Questions resource for your convenience.

  7. Another: Chaunce Hill


    The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the recipients of the ninth annual Tewaaraton Native American Scholarships, presented by US Lacrosse. Awarded to one male and one female student each year, the scholarship honors high school students of Haudenosaunee / Iroquois heritage who exemplify high character, leadership, and academics both on and off the lacrosse field. Applicants are asked to submit an essay describing what the sport of lacrosse means to them as a Native American, as well as two letters of recommendation and a high school transcript.


    Chaunce Hill hails from Tonawanda Seneca and will graduate from Akron (N.Y.) High School with a 3.7 GPA in June 2015. Before his senior year, Chaunce took part in the Two Row Wampum canoe trip down the Hudson River from Upstate New York to Manhattan to honor the ongoing significance of the Two Row Wampum Treaty of 1613. Chaunce was also captain of his varsity basketball and lacrosse teams during his senior year. After high school, he will go on to play lacrosse at University of Albany. Chaunce is a dedicated part of his community and an outstanding student who exemplifies all that the Foundation and US Lacrosse strive to honor with this scholarship.

  8. I recall beating princeton @ home a number of years back. I also recall the wind was blowing about 50 miles an hour that day; but do not remember if they were top 10 @ that time. Maybe I dreamt the whole thing. Anyone else remember this and if princeton was a top 10 @ the time??


    Corey Small's Scores Four Goals in Lacrosse's 10-2 Upset Win Against No. 11 Princeton


    The 2008 game was played in wind chills near zero in Albany, and Princeton's offense was even colder. The Tigers managed just a pair of Kovler goals, the second one coming in the final eight seconds, as Albany romped 10-2.

  9. Albany's Riorden, Queener Keep it 'Fun-First' In and Out of the Goal





    Why does Syracuse lacrosse goalie Bobby Wardwell wear sweatpants?

    So why do lacrosse goalies wear pants?

    "There really is a thing about it actually [being] a save a game," Wardwell said, "not just from the standpoint of you catch a ball off the pants, but also there's not as much to look at with the cage. It kind of takes up a lot of room and just makes shooters think there's not as much space there where they can shoot."
