  2. i hate the fact that the MAAC tourney takes priority over the american east. but at least the webcasts will be sufficient.
  3. i was just on america east's website and found the media packet for the upcoming tourney in boston. in the packet it gives information about the tourney procrdures and team seeds. i was reading albanys blurb and they showed a fact about #2 seeds that could be a glimmer of hope. it states "Throughout tourney history, No. 2 seeds have combined to go 46-18 (.719), collecting six league crowns and advancing to the title game 17 times." heres the link: Media Packet
  4. ok i went to SB last night. even though we had the game in hand and we were crusing, we stil dont have a strong all around big middle man. i know all you fans like gifford and give him the freshman excuse. but i think last nights game said different. point in case, 2 min mark in the second half when gifford travels at a open layup. i am almost sorry for the kid but you cant let a open layup go like that. now i saw yocum in the exhibition game against laval, he has a pretty nice hook shot. i would like to see yocum have a chance to get more minutes and produce. please vote on the topic poll. thanks side note: i know jimmy is a starter but when he is not producing who would you put in.
  5. We need to get a big student turnout. Jamar, Jason and Bauman deserve a rousing ovation!! isnt bauman a junior??? i think he is. but def jamar and siggers deserve a ovation for like 20 min. lol
  6. i just want to say that i will be there thursday rooting the danes to victory in SB. i hope this loss with boise st wont haunt us. tho a nice W would be a momentum game for us going into the AE tourney. also this news about sharing the regular season championship with VT will only be a moral victory if it can be accomplished. its been a good season. is every one ready? lets go danes!
  7. hahaha if we had beaten VT 2 weeks ago then this game would mean the world to me. but even if they still lose i would be sort of happy. they have good players and i hope the low seeds in the AE tourney give them trouble. so i am going to say this now and forever hold my peace.....GO BEARCATS! even if u lose i dont care cuz like the crowd said at the BPG, BU SUCKS
  8. Thats ridiculous. The team is played hard, but Gifford is awful. He has NO hands. He gets the ripped from him all the time. When he tries to make a move he either travels or gets stripped. He got a few boards when the ball went right to him. He needs to do more. No offense, suffice to say, Daneaholic and Alexfamous no about this much (my finger an millimeter apart) about strategic hoops. If you do know hoops, and I am wrong, I suggest you re-watch the game. GIFFORD PLAYED WELL...showed soft hands, did some good fronting, and made a great move out of the double to get the ball up the court. HIS HANDS ARE VERY GOOD. If you are referring to that one rebound that went off his hands...OK...but that was one play. Yes he got stripped one time on a slap of the ball from the weakside. However, these are the types of comments Will is talking about. You people comment on basketball like you have a strategic understanding...when clearly you do not. The players dont need to hear stuff that is baseless. Granted, they are smart enough to brush it off, but I expect more out of Dane fans. Gifford and Connelly combined for 11 and 9 after Covington went out with his foul trouble. The big men from Maine were neutralized. I will take that out of the 5 spot...any day of the week. Yes, Gifford had some TO's...but so did the rest of the Danes. Gifford will be just fine...and those who truly understand the game...REALIZE THIS. Before you respond with a "whatever guy...what do you know", why dont you FACTUALLY reply with what Gifford did wrong in this game. Kinda like the fools who said Covington had a awful game versus Boston U. RIGHT...... ok well if jimmy was in foul trouble then there is also yocum too who can come off the bench...i like yocum way better than gifford.
  9. we are so lucky that gifford had 2 rebounds hit him right in the gut and score. he has no idea what he is doin.
  10. one side note, maine has not played since saturday when they defeated UNH by 9. so we are going up against a well rested maine team. rythem is key for the danes to keep scoring and make key stops so maine doesnt keep it close.
  11. thank you. i am just continuing a tradition that started with my father when he attended UA back in the 70s. UA has come a long way from being a small school. lets go Danes
  12. last game with maine we won by 9, UAlbany 82, Maine 73. leading scorers for both teams were Jamar wilson, 31 pts, for UA and chris bruff, 23, for maine. since 1/11/07 maine went 6-1 with a victory against vermont. so this should be a very good game. i just hope that we dont get too exhausted when we play vermont on sunday. UA UAUAUAUA UUUUUUUAAAAA UUUUUUAAAA
  13. yea he is trigger happy but i think he is learning a little more not to be. but when he is on fire he is money
  14. I pose one important question for all those iati-holics, what about next year when raffa becomes a starter and jon remains the 6th man? agree or disagree?
