  1. Pretty sure that if the reason they're going to the game is specifically to cheer on Moll and Vermont..then they're not local "fans." This type of thing happens all the time with local Capital Region players visiting..men and women. Same thing happens when UAlbany plays near the home of our players. UAlbany still gets the ticket sales!
  2. Thanks. Doesn't look like I received it. Odd..since I'm a season ticket holder.
  3. What was the subject line of the email? I don't believe I received one.
  4. Final score was better than I was expecting. Like others..was also thinking this might be a 10-15pt margin game. If you had told me we'd have 20+ turnovers and still have it come down to the wire..I'd be pretty happy. That said..a loss is loss..and it was kinda tough to see a lead slip away like that. I'm sure this won't be the last with our young team! Positives: outside shooting; Healy looked much more mature than a frosh; Clark certainly looks to be our player-maker..can be frustrating sometimes to see someone overly aggressive like he is..but there always needs to be someone on the te
  5. Posting here instead of the Delaware thread. The 'remove Gattuso and name an interim HC while negotiating a buyout just so Gattuso doesn't coach' idea simply doesn't make sense to me. With the caveat that I'm not a sports attorney..Gattuso's contract is for the position of Head Coach. Removing him..but not firing him (?)..and putting in an interim is just semantics. It would be in violation of his contract and he would have a right to have the entirety of the his contract paid out. The max extension was..and now more obviously is..a mistake. But I still don't envision a scenario where he
  6. My few novice observations... Miller looked good, calm and in control, knocked down a number of shots; French was much more physical underneath than I was expecting; Lulka can really spread the floor, shot well from three and had some nice moves down low; Brooks is quick and a great passer, mainly looked to distribute instead of attempting to show off his reported deep range, but had a couple nice mid-range/floater shots; Lauderdale is a load; Malachi looked like a very talented freshman, a bit unsure at times and not always great decision making, but big enough to fight underneath and athleti
  7. Just noting the newsletter says "open practice" not "open scrimmage."
  8. Sorry..probably didn't explain that well enough. Didn't mean to suggest he might not be the coach..just that it seems the lack of announcement might not simply be the department failing to get around to it..because Fisher is basically in the same boat. Coordination, contracts, etc. Who knows.
  9. I believe the MLAX SID recently left for Towson. Not sure how much that plays into the lack of coverage. Probably more that the department clearly places a strong emphasis on football. FWIW..the Fisher MLAX site still lists Maloney as an assistant.
  10. So..we just need more advertising. Or cheaper tickets. Or better in-game promotions. Or beer in the seats. Or arena renovations. I say win baby win.
  11. I watched Clark's just 10 days ago and apparently already forgot it! Must be getting old... So..per those videos: Point Guard - Clark, Brooks Shooting Guard - Flory, Rizzuto, Healy Guard - Miller TBD - Starks, Fruscio
  12. Brett Gifford was listed at 6'11"... 2006-07 through 2009-10. FWIW..in the team intro video clips being posted online by Athletics..Rizzuto, Healy and Flory all introduced themselves as a "shooting guard." Miller introduced himself as a "guard." And Brooks introduced himself as a "point guard." Neither Clark's nor Starks' videos have been published yet.
  13. Ray Miller is a grad transfer..so his scholly would also free up after the 18-19 season.
  14. If I had to guess now..this is where I'd be as well. I think the SG spot will be the best battle. Need a good scorer there. Clark showed flashes and will hopefully continue to improve..but it's always tough to be the ballhander and top offensive option. Campbell gives you size and defense at the wing..but obviously isn't a go-to offensive threat. It sounds like Lulka might be able to spread the floor a bit..which is something we haven't really seen from the PF spot consistently since Brent Wilson.
  15. University announced the hiring of Katie Rowan..current Wagner HC, former UAlbany asst, and former Cuse/Bethlehem standout. http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211719072 Great resume..but surprised they didn't stick with the current interim. Guess I just assumed they would after her being the assistant/associate HC for a number of years and then leading the team to the conference title game as the interim. Kinda odd. Either way.. welcome Coach Rowan.
