Seems a tad low considering some national publications have us a solid second behind UVM.  Guess that's why they play the games. Let's prove the coaches wrong and go 16-0 lol.😜

Tomorrow camp opens for the MBB team. First official practice of the season is 10/4.   Let's go!

In addition to strength, if his outside shooting were more consistent, he'll be really tough to deal with. He scratched the surface of what he can do in the final part of conference play. I think

We might be better but it's going to be a tough conference and we're going to have to earn it. 

I tend to think Hartford is going to be better than their picked.

UML is always better than picked.

Stony Brook is a big question mark with a new coach and without Yeboah. If Yeboah stayed I'm guessing they would have been #2. They weren't a work of art on offense last year but were big and physical and defended. If Latimer makes a big leap then they'll be in good shape.

 Who really cares? Love it. Just make it bulletin board material. The team is better than #4, but after last season, they just have to prove it on the court. Last season the team was picked 4 and ended at 6. This year picked at 4 and will end at 2. It will average at 4 :)

Another Story from Kelly about the potential playing group - https://dailygazette.com/article/2019/10/17/rotation-taking-shape-for-ualbany-men-s-basketball

Probably not a surprise:

Clark

Healy

Rizzuto

Lauderdale

Lulka

de Sousa

Hansen

It appears Hutcheson may slide into this group as well giving us 9. Fingers crossed on JoJo. 

 

So rotation would be

PG - Clark/Jojo

SG - Healy/Rizzuto/Hutcheson

SF - Rizzuto/DeSousa/Hutcheson

PF - Hansen/Lauderdale/DeSousa

C - Lulka/Hansen/Lauderdale

 

If JoJo is ruled out for the year...then I think you'll see Healy drop down to point with increased minutes at the 2 for Rizzuto and increased minutes for DeSousa at the 3.

I'd have to think JoJo would come back slowly if he's able to play this year. He hasn't practiced and still will be coming off some kind of surgery.

Shafer is in a similar boat. I think he's be sidelined for a while so he'll have to make an impression but he has time.

In somewhat related news...the AE as a conference is projected to be 24th best conference, the power MAAC is ranked 28th with Siena about 100 spots below us in pre-season projections.

 

Doesn't mean much but LOL
