Big Purple FANtasy Basketball (AE Version)

Recommended Posts

In hopes of livening up the basketball season a little more I'm asking everyone to pick an AE fantasy team. We'll keep track of them over the season with the winner possibly getting an undisclosed prize (or I may just buy you a beer at the conference tournament).


The Rules (I realize there are several lawyers on the board who will probably find loopholes somehow):

1. All players must play men's basketball in the America East Conference.

2. Four of the teams in the conference play 26 games while the rest play 27. If you pick anyone from Bing, BU, UNH or Vermont (26 games) they will play a mythical 27th game with stats averaged from the other 26 games.

3. Preseason (exhibition) and post-season games don't count.

4. Games against D2 teams DO count if they are regular season games (See Maine's schedule)

5. Pick 8 players. A starting 5 and 3 bench players.Winners will be the starting 5 only. In case of a tie the bench players will decide after that. If they're tied after the bench players are factored in then I give up-It's a tie. Should one of your starting 5 be lost for the season due to injury (and only injury) you can sub from you bench.



A combination of total points scored plus one point for every assist and one point for every rebound.

An Example: Say 3 members of your starting 5 are Statefan, Dane Pound and Alumni92. Their stats for a game are :


Statefan-12 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists.

Dane Pound-23 points, O rebounds, 0 assists and 10 turnovers.

Alumni92-10 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists and a technical foul.


The scoring for that game would be Statefan 25 points, Dane Pound 23 points (plus a lecture about team play) and Alumni92 28 points.! Got it? Alright!


Post you picks right in this thread. Give the full players name and team to avoid any confusion.

Here's a sample:


Starting 5

Player X, UMBC

Player X, Vermont

Player X, UNH

Player X, Albany

Player X, Stony Brook



Player X, UMBC

Player X, Bing

Player X, Maine
