  1. Gattuso was on the AD search committee that chose Benson... 🤷🏻‍♀️
  2. Benson hasn't even followed through with his "town hall" chats he talked so much about doing for fans. He likes to keep fans away with a 10ft poll. Maybe I'm wrong as he now has the media department for athletics all over basketball where they haven't given a crap about it for 3 years at least. So maybe his tune will change now that he has his guy in. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But that's on the school to create their own forum not a private one you'd think.
  3. CJ Kelly going to UMass according to Knott's instagram account. He is training him it looks like.
  4. UMBC Coach Ryan Odom Reportedly Landing New Job https://thespun.com/college-hoops/umbc-coach-ryan-odom-reportedly-heading-utah-state "Odom is expected to take the head coaching job at Utah State, where he’ll replace Craig Smith. Smith moved over to become the head coach at the University of Utah after leading the Aggies to an at-large NCAA Tournament bid this season."
  5. His team is playing now https://twitter.com/3X3UHoops/status/1378034384360603654
  6. Clark's team won, will post here when I find out the next game time and link.
  7. "3x3 has been a basketball format long played in streets and gyms across the world, albeit in a less formal way. Starting in the late 1980s, three-on-three began to become standardized throughout the United States, most notably through the Gus Macker and Hoop It Up tournament series, which held large events across the country that invited teams and players from all skill levels. Since then, the number of 3x3 events and competitions has been steadily growing all around the world. FIBA took the decision to first test 3x3 at the 2007 Asian Indoor Games. Yet, it was not until 2010 at the Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore when 3x3 made its worldwide competitive debut. The competition featured 20 teams in both boys' and girls' categories. The competition was held at the Youth Space, Singapore. Since then World Championships in both open and U18 categories are held on a regular basis. After the success in Singapore, FIBA launched a full programme to make 3x3 a standalone discipline with its own regular competitions. 3x3 is scheduled to make its Olympic debut at the 2020 Summer Olympics." The total prize pool for the Event is One Hundred Five Thousand US Dollars (US $105,000.00), to be distributed as follows: Each Team winning a Game during pool play, but excluding any Pool Tie-Break Game, will receive a prize of One Thousand US Dollars (US $1,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team. Each Team winning a Game during the first round, second round, and consolation round of the Event bracket stage will receive a prize of One Thousand US Dollars (US $1,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team. The Team winning the Event’s bracket stage will receive a prize of Fifty Thousand US Dollars (US $50,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team. https://www.3x3uhoops.com/landing/index America East and MAAC team is called Metro East Mayhem and includes Clark, Camper (Siena) and Ellison (Hartford).

  8. Yes they want you to send them $ but they don't want to spend any on opening up anything for fans. 🙄
  9. Words chosen wisely,,,"spectators" but not "fans". I don't mean family can't be fans, but its not like regular alumni, community members, fans etc will be able to go unless you know the team/player that can put your name on a team list. "Event attendance will be limited to guests of participating student-athletes and coaching staffs"
  10. Just heard there may be other news other than this coming out. I dunno we'll see.
  11. Athletics batting 1000%..whats next..hearing there's other news? 👀
  12. Funny you should say that. Benson's first UA Alumni event when he started at the school, I sat at a table with him GDG and one staff member and we specifically brought up the Siena situation letting him know the history. I agree someone needs to do that with the new coach..and it should be someone outside of Benson's grasp.
  13. I took it as he was saying he wants to bring UA to these big schools as if we have never played there. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Just how I heard it. Would love to visit them again.
  14. Responded to wrong post and can't delete the emoji lol. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  15. At Kentucky, MSG and at the Palestra. (He mentioned one school and two locations). All of which we have played at.
  16. Presser is what I expected, said the right things you'd want a new coach to say. Hoping it translates to the court 👍 and the classroom. (Though I noticed he said he wants us to play at big schools and I believe all the ones he names we have played at. So a little more research may be needed 😊) So is this where we are at with names for the staff? Head Coach:Killings Top Assistant(?):Tibbs(7 years at UVM) Other Assistants Seen Mentioned online: -Matt Griffin (High School Coach no D1 experience) https://aopathletics.org/news/2019/6/13/boys-basketball-matt-griffin-named-athletic-director-at-roman.aspx -Raheem Mapp (Director of basketball operations for Temple for five years, no direct coaching experience) .. Rodger tweeted it then deleted it it https://owlsports.com/staff-directory/raheem-mapp/365
  17. School alumns, little different. Man you really hated our last program.
  18. Here's hoping he will do well. Last two programs (assuming Marquette) he was at the head coach got fired. That's a bit, eh. Hopefully he has some special magic he was hiding just for when he would be a head coach.
  19. Vic's dad was the AD at UConn when he was at UConn, all in the family.
  20. "The next head coach at Albany will be either Desmond Oliver and Dwayne Killings." https://t.co/5Uxh1duyqC. Twitter
  21. This is a new coach thread, yes. People have the right to talk about the qualities that a new coach should have. And of course that's going to be compared to the last coach... Or for example conversations about those qualities of a new coach and what qualities the old coach did or did not have. And that may very well still involve people saying that they like certain coach qualities that our last coach had.
  22. As GDG says to me, it's just like what Ted Turner said after he fired Bobby Cox....and the irony he ended up back to he Braves and won. (just a little baseball talk in the basketball thread) "A fresh face, that's all it was,' Turner said of the decision to fire Cox, who managed the Braves for four seasons and still has a year to go on his contract. 'If Bobby wasn't here, he'd be one of the leading candidates for the job. A new broom sweeps clean. That's all." " Cox’s first stint managing the Braves would last from 1978 to 1981, resulting in a 266-323 record. When Turner was asked at a 1981 press conference who the likely next manager of the Braves would be, he replied, “It would be Bobby Cox if I hadn’t just fired him. We need someone like him around here." -HOF
  23. “When we’re looking at it, it would be great if the person had coaching experience at the mid-major level, or a higher level,” Benson said. “Someone who has been at a few different places to see what works best, and bring it here. It doesn’t have to be a sitting head coach or a former head coach.” -Daily Gazette Sounds like he has someone in mind. Then he won't need to go through all those resumes and paperwork. Specific to say they have been a few places and doesn't have to be a head coach. Sounds like an assistant that has moved around a bit.
