It's not an issue. People just like to complain.

Well it looks like the changed the time to 9am Friday per the bracket? http://www.nysbasketballbrackets.com/2015/15feda.htmland it now says Scotia will play Canisus.

@LauraAmato: Several of the @UAlbany_MBB players will be in the stands for tomorrow's Federation game at SEFCU. Future Dane Joe Cremo & Scotia play at 9."

Guy I talked to who saw the game said Canisius looked like Kentucky last night - five guys 6-6 or better, athletic, dunk at will. Good effort by Scotia.

That's a pretty good analogy. They probably had at least four D1 athletes on the floor, a couple for basketball and a couple for football. Ty Wheatley Jr. in the middle. He's one of the top recruits in the state for football, going to Michigan.

 

Tough for the public schools to compete with that kind of roster but they did.

Man, I am aging...

It is. There's only one alternative to again and it's not so good.

Verbal commits says we offered a scholarship to Kyle Benton. He is a forward at a JUCO in California. He was at Portland State his freshman year. They list him at 6'7" and 225 pounds.

Seems like the kind guy we would need. Played at what must be a terrific high school, his teammates were Jon Ross - headed to Long Beach State, and Eric Cooper Jr. who just had a pretty good freshman year at Nevada.

 

Our last California JUCO was pretty good - Gary Johnson.

We have a short term need for a productive big..but a long term need for guards. Cremo will be our only freshman or sophomore guard..and Mike Rowley will be our only junior or senior big. We've never done it before..but this would seem to be the perfect situation for a 5th year grad transfer. Get an effective post player and then immediately free up the scholarship for a guard in 2016. UAlbany does have great grad programs!

 

EDIT: Rich Peters will also be a junior. No senior bigs.

I was hoping for a "splash brothers" tag team with Cremo and Baker, especially with Cremo's ability to drive and kick. We've had departures before. Just have to trust in Coach at this point. He's found a way to get it done in the past. Question is - does he stray the course, and look for a majority of 3-4 year guys, or does he go the sexy JUCO/rent-a-player strategy that we did years back that didn't pan out?

Seemed to work out last year with Singletary, Sanders and Peters. :)
