Why did you choose Stony Brook University, Men's D1? "I attended the Stony Brook prospect day in September and immediately fell in love with the scenery. I saw the brand new indoor facility and knew I would love to play here. I also realized that the new coaching staff was exactly what I was looking for, and when I received a text from coach Gilardi and Brazel that night, I had a good feeling I would attend Stony Brook. I visited later that month and after weighing all my options, I knew it was where I wanted to go."
What other colleges did you consider? "Rutgers, Binghamton & Towson"

this is no surprise- we only attempted 16 threes; beat our arch rival by 8 (was up 13 with 2min left). 

we normally take ~26/game.  look at our "decent" wins this year- NDST (21), manhattan (20), american (17), albany (16) [at VT we took 27].  heck look at our "good losses", UVa (21), yale (23).

now look at the losses that we arguably couldve won.  SHU (25), delaware (33), providence (31), hartford (30).

maybe 4man getting into foul trouble was a blessing?  instead of 9 he attempted 5.  the four games leading up to that?  forty four attempts. 

and i say that with the understanding that not all threes are equal.  and that his % is solid.

why not do the data analytics.  everyone else is.

Ally Kennedy, Stony Brook — senior midfield

Kennedy is another Tewaraaton nominee and first team All-American on this list. This midfielder is crazy good. Kennedy averaged 4 goals per game last season which ranks sixth in the nation. She is also sixth in the nation in total goals with 84. She makes her presence known inside the eight and shoots from just about anywhere. Stony Brook's tournament run was cut short by Maryland last season, but Kennedy is coming back for more.

“She had a little bit of an attitude,” Spallina said. “I saw it, too, with the heart of a lion who is super competitive. Surround me with a group of kids with that attitude and that mindset, and we’re going to win a lot of games.”

The Seawolves have certainly won games, posting a combined record of 56-8 in Kennedy’s three seasons with the program, and although her future always seemed bright, the beginning of her career was rocky.

Kennedy and Spallina “butt heads” early on. Spallina, who prides himself just as much on teaching as he does on coaching, saw her potential and sought ways to bring it out. He said Kennedy didn’t always accept the style in which he went about doing so.

“That’s one of the things when you see something in a player, it’s your job as a coach and as a professional to get the best out of them,” Spallina said. “Player development is so important to us here, making a good player great.”

She was a Tewaaraton nominee last year and an IWLCA first team All-American. She’s fourth in program history in goals (171) and seventh in points (221), not to mention her 195 draw controls ranking third all-time. She scored at least three goals in 17 of 21 games last season, and her speed is second to none.

“Everybody else kind of hates them. I have a really high level of respect for what Joe and his staff do over there. I think their buy-in is absolutely incredible.”

“They kind of have an attitude or a swagger about them. They are fighting for every single ball like it’s their last. I think they play extremely hard.”

i thought latimer had a great second half.  again i like the chef coming off the bench to add some physicality in the paint.  big night for garcia too- again, when we lose our calm, he penetrates and hits a layup.

ola got his what fourth consecutive double-double, again with like 8min to spare. 

btw the first five minutes of the game they worked us, thought it was going the other way.  a well managed game, well done boys!  and ford too- he's been a really nice surprise this year.
