  1. After not seeing pre-game hype about the UMass - Amherst game, I checked to see what if anything was posted recently on the UAlbany MBB Instagram account however what I discovered was that the men's basketball Instagram account status is now a private. The account status previously was public, which allowed anyone to see what was posted and to comment about the postings. I checked other UAlbany team's Instagram accounts, and all remain public. I have seen a few mildly vile posts on the MBB postings. Was the account hacked? I do not know. If the MBB Instagram account remains private and viewing to a select few, this adds to my opinion that the Athletic Sports Administration has become overly sensitive and attempting to shield itself from criticism from its fans. Some of the posters on the forum have said the people in power within Athletics read and/or have knowledge of what we post. Many of the Athletic powers must be unhappy with us.
  2. Instead of waiting for Dwayne Killings develop his game time coaching skills and bring maturity to his coaching staff, there may be a solution already on campus. My thought: Allow the MBB program borrow from the WBB program a person who possesses the maturity and game time coaching skills currently lacking with the men's program; allow Gina Castelli to join the MBB coaching staff for the balance of the OCC schedule. Her resume is below: A summer 2021 hire, Gina Castelli is the Executive Coach for Program Development and Pleyer Relations. In this unique, administrative position, Castelli will be able to utilize her expertise in leadership, mentorship, and management. Her perspective and insight will help the student-athletes win on and off the court, help the coaches and staff develop, and contribute tremedously to the Great Danes' championship culture.Castelli returns to the Capital Region following an eight-year stint at Le Moyne College. She led the Dolphins to six winning seasons, including a career program-best 26 victories during the 2018-19 season. That same season the Dolphins won the NE-10 title for the first time in program history, defeating Bentley in the conference championship game. Castelli next led her team to the first two NCAA Tournament victories in program history, advancing to the East Regional Championship. Before arriving at Le Moyne, Castelli spent 22 seasons as the head coach of Siena, accumulating a program-high 336 victories. With the Saints, Castelli was named MAAC Coach of the Year five times and led Siena to seven MAAC regular-season championships and one MAAC Tournament title. Castelli coached 39 All-Conference players at Siena, including seven Players of the Year and four Rookies of the Year. She also boasted a 100% graduation rate among her student-athletes. Castelli also has stops at the University of Rhode Island and Marquette University in her career. She graduated Canisius College in 1986 with a degree in Physical Education and Athletic Training. Yes, this is outside the box however; the MBB program needs out-of-the box thinking. Gina arrival with the WBB program has in part, led to its resurgence.

  8. The ASP - Albany Student Press is reporting "New UA Basketball Coach approaches season without a finalized contract." The ASP is reporting the University will only confirm Dwayne Killings salary of $365,000 per year. How long has Coach Killings been here? (Answer known) Wonder who is holding up finalizing a deal? Is this part of the new mentality? The ASP - Albany Student Press posted a "statement" on their Instagram, which I saw in a folder of things I might be interested in but do not follow. The link to ASP Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/albanystudentpress/
