Since the school finally posted the roster for the upcoming season, I think it is about time that the women's team has its thread to start the season. Notably, as was rumored when she was absent from a team picture earlier this summer, Zakiya Saunders is no long listed on the roster, and I have not seen her pop up as a transfer elsewhere. Possibly an early graduation? Elsewhere, they have three of Coach Abe's recruits in Alexi Schecter © and Khepera Stokes (G) on the roster and Mackenzie Trpcic (G), which shows that the program on its own has enough clout that even when the coach who builds it leaves, the recruits (aside from the uber-talented Kaela Hilare) stay. They have added Kumsal Aslan from Turkey, a 5'8" guard, and Chyanna Canada, a 6'2" forward who originally committed to Temple but left after one semester last fall. I would imagine that she will be redshirting this year. Big question for this year's team is who takes over at the 1 with Saunders leaving. Otherwise, your roster would probably shake out like this: 1. Freshman PG 2. Tate 3. Edwards 4. Forster 5. Carter I can see Bailey Hixson getting some more playing time for her perimeter shot, but have no idea what to expect from any of the other freshmen, aside from that Schecter is 6'3". Looking forward to the season to start! http://www.ualbanysports.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&SPID=8000&SPSID=70296&KEY=&Q_SEASON=2016
With the calendar turning over to December, I figured this would be a good time to post this game. A matchup of two of the premier mid-major squads in the northeast, if not the country shifts south to Poughkipsee on Wednesday the 10th. In the game last year, the Danes came away with a victory that was probably their biggest non-conference win prior to this season's victory over Penn St. As for some context of the game itself, Marist had a large contingent at SEFCU that night. The band was quite vocal (as was the case all last year), especially during Marist FT's. At halftime, after fans complained to the police in the arena, the police silenced the band for the rest of the game. We were not allowed to make any noise on free throws or any other defensive possessions. That was the first and only time that has ever happened, and was especially crazy to happen in our own building. We told Coach Abe after the fact, and she was incensed. Fast forward to next Wednesday, and I am hoping to have a solid purple crowd at the game at Marist. I will be attending, and will be providing tickets for up to 10 other band members (no instruments, just voices) to come down and exact some revenge and continue to show who is top dog in New York. Hope to see some of you at the game, spread the word!
