Seawolves remain undefeated  winning 6-3 against Nichols ST .  Good pitching and defense all came together along with key hitting.

I got into watching SB Baseball after that 2012 season and follow then fairly closely now. I think the last time they went 3-0 was in 2012, when they shocked the world!!..

Not a big LAX fan by any means (trying to learn!) but the poor start for the team has me worried. I've been waiting for a season where they really establish themselves with Nagle and it isn't there yet which has me concerned. It's even more glaring given the tremendous success Spallina has had in such a short time.

Again, this is just coming from a casual fan who is growing more impatient in recent years.
This.
Theres no reason SB shouldnt have success like Albany, or more given location and academics.

I agree Wolfie. Nagle has had ample time to take this program to the next level. Long Island is a breading ground for Lax stars. Just not in a SB men's uniform...

Article on Otchere's recruitment. Sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders and isn't simply looking for the biggest school.

Looks like a far fetch landing Otchere. If so, then i would be shocked!!

Its a sad end to Tys career. He was a nice reserve his first two years and, while he had some head scratchers, he still played an important role in our success as a junior. This year, it seems as though Boals has seen enough of him - nothing inside, too many turnovers, not enough on defense, poor shot selection a lot of the time. Tonight, 6 minutes, 3 fouls (1 a weak tech) and almost no contributions. Saintel had a nice first half, but the four other seniors combined for 5 points.

Just not enough firepower or consistency.

I agree.  Seems like a nice kid, but since his surge in the 1st half of last season, it's been straight downhill for him.  Poor basketball IQ and athleticism just not showing up. 'Tis a shame.

Although Olaniyi makes a lot of freshmen mistakes, he shows lots of potential and he and Yeboah will be the core of the team next year.   Point guard worries me tremendously.  Cornish, who has abundant energy and athleticism, is just plain out of control too much, and that is a position that requires discipline as the quarterback of the team.  On the other hand, as I watch McKenzie closely, he lacks athleticism, and is downright slow - certainly more in control than Cornish, but can't see him being the starting PG moving forward.  For whatever reason, Almonacy has fallen out of favor, and he'll probably wind up transferring I'd imagine, if he's looking to continue his playing.  Personally, I'd play Almonacy now over McKenzie.

Saintel played a really good game last night - tremendously athletic, just needs to finish better around the rim generally.  That steal and dunk last night was the highlight of the game.  Also, Chef did some good things early in the game last night.   He's raw, but I definitely see potential there.
I agree on all fronts Oldseawolf. Especially with Almonancy.  Big mistake not playing a local product. Coach Boals has a lot to learn.  I personally think coach B is NOT a HC but more of an assisstant.

I'll reserve judgment on Boals for now. Not saying I completely disagree with you, but he deserves a longer leash. He did a nice job with last year's team.

On your other point, I'd have to think that very few are clamoring for more Almonacy. Granted, I'm surprised he's been DNP'd entirely, but I think that's mostly on merit. He has looked disinterested; maybe that's just on the outside. I could see him getting some bit time, but that Iroegbu has played the point when Mac and Cornish have been in foul trouble speaks volumes about how far Almonacy has fallen ... assuming he's not injured of course.

And if you have a problem with them not playing him simply because he's local, then you should take a close look at the recruits on our radar. Nobody's local. Problem with that or no? I do not because the Long Island hoops landscape is pretty barren in general. Let's get the best guys we can, regardless of their place of origin.

Checkmate. Coach Boals absolutey should be playing Almonacy over Cornish or McKenzie. Boals wont because he didnt recruit Almonacy . Coach P was widely liked and popular on long Island because he did have a couple of local products from L I on his team. Woodhouse had a nice following when he was here, so does Almonacy ..

Last year team was not his team. It was still Pikiell so, I give Boals very little credit for their season.

I have to give coach Boals one more season as well before I make a final judgement call on him, but from what I am seeing of his play calling and use of timeouts, he is as green as they come..

Savion Lewis, PG,is  the best player on Long Island and is averaging 33 points per game for Half Hollow Hills .He has no offers from Stony Brook. Now could that be because of his grades? Possible.. Maybe someone with some info can tell me if this is the case or not.. HH plays Ward Melville next week in the 2nd round of the playoffs..

We played an aggressive, well coached 1st 12-14 minutes, and then reverted to the launchpad playbook, really bad TOs, and missed FTs, the rest of the way. If it was anyone but Maine, we would have lost this game, imo.
SB struggled against arguably the worst team in the conference and almost lost. Put a faulk in this season, it's over.. On to football and some Lacrosse

Not sure if I could watch the remaining games.. Darn shame. I feel like the their BB program took 5 steps backwards once Pikell departed. This could be the begging of the end for program for many years to come.

This team is tough to watch This year.  I am not sure if it is on the coach or if the players just don't have a good basketball IQ. Brutal is an understatement!!

Where did the brothers from Ward Melville end up going?

I'm guessing that you are talking about Tim and Tom Kutchma.  Looks like both of them signed up with ASA.  I'm a little surprised, considering their purported talent, but maybe it was an academic grades thing.  Since we've gotten talent previously from ASA, I wouldn't be surprised if we see them at SBU in '19 or '20.

It was an academic issue.

Hammer, Love your passion but you are missing the boat on the preferred walk on program. It is not a negative. It allows the school to add extra kids to the roster without counting against scholarship limits. I have expkained the process before. These kids will recieve state aid, some of them will get full aid. They can earn a full scholarship anytime but if it is given before the finish their 2nd yr it counts against the original signing yr. Thats why you see the walk ons get redshirted, that buys the team an extra yr and you see that they will earn the scholarship when they head into their RS sophmore yr. All the schools do it including the FBS schools. Just look up an article on it and it will explain a lot. Clay Mathews was a prefered walk on at USC. With todays signings that brings the total # of in state kids to 60 I believe. You cant ask for more than that locally.
 

thanks Chrissy for clearing that up..

The big sleeper for the 2018 class is Danny Carroll out of Sachem North HS according many people in the football community he might turn out to be one of the best ever out of Sachem as he was constantly doubled and even triple teamed and he still made tackles. He's extremely athletic with a motor that doesn't stop.

According to the recruiting coordinator the theme of this class is its athleticism

Attached is my complete list including the walk-ons (there are a few more walk-ons coming)

That Rb they got from PA Rasul Faison had sick numbers his last two yrs. 5,100 yds and 69 tds. Also as of right now including the early signing period players SB has 56 kids from NY on the roster. The misconception is that they dont recruit locally but that number says a lot. They do have two hansen winners have had 7 in the last 11 yrs.

How did SB sign this kid. He is fast, smart and has really good field of vision down field. Rasul surely must have some FBS offers>>
