    Today they lose i double OT by a point.  They had #! turnovers and shot 54.4 % from the free throw line.  They really need to cherish the ball more.  Stokes had 8 turnovers herself.  

    They had 31 turnovers; blew a 13 point lead in the 4th qtr and missed 5 of 6 free throws in the last minute of regulation with the lead.

    I applaud the Athletic Department making the stand. This is just awesome that we finally put our big boy pants on and walked away. LCC won't find a team that will draw as well as we do every other year if it was a home and home. I heard from someone in the athletic department that we did propose 2 games every year, but apparently that was turned down. 

    I will miss the atmosphere of the game, but without the game at SEFCU every other year (including this season) it is not at all worth it. Good riddance. 

    Benson may be popular today with the outspoken message boarders, but, what I have heard from virtually everyone in the business community and the non-UA non-Siena sports community is that Benson has not only lost the most anticipated game of the year, but, even worse has gotten destroyed in the public relations war.

    Where is the tweet for List on May 3? On the Rockies Twitter it shows up May 15? It’s normal for players to seek transfers when the coach who recruited them leaves.  

    This is what I saw:

    @Emma_List32 5'10", guard, has permission from @UAlbanyWBB to speak with all except All America East schools and Boston College. Don't miss this one!

    I try not to commit on religion or politics on this board, but I'll say this:

    If we had players request a transfer because of one of the coaches personal lives that has no effect on their ability to coach, then I say good riddance.  Those players do not belong on a team in the America East or a team I support.

    While they are 100% free to have whatever beliefs they want, what the coach does off the court has nothing to do with the players, their academics, or their ability to play high level basketball.


    Again, I will point out that I'm no twitter genius, but, the first tweet I saw that List had gotten a release was on May 3.  The first tweet I saw that Trpcic had gotten a release was on May 5.  The announcement of Coach Mullin's hiring was on May 14.  Let's not impugn these two student athletes without knowing the facts.

    I see that some feel it is inappropriate to dwell on those student athletes who have decided to transfer.  For me, the 3 teams I follow most are MBB, WBB and MLAX.  This is the most unusual post-seasons I can ever remember at UAlbany with the 2 best MBB players transferring; two probable WBB starters transferring and possibly the most significant MLAX player transferring.  As an alum, fan, season ticket buyer, athletic donor and someone who identifies with UAlbany athletics in the community, it may not be my right to know why, but I am concerned with why and if there are team cultures or player-coach issues which cause these departures, I want to understand that the Athletic Administration is handling each unique situation appropriately to insure the University's good name and reputation.
