we were a bit sloppy, most of the day.  we werent leading into the half and a few min coming out of the halftime.

Draw control was another serious problem. BC had some very tall players catching the jump ball at every face off..

Exactly. I can't say we have a recruiting problem when we were 20-0 and #1 all year, but having that kind of size would be beneficial in games like this. I guess as in other sports, recruits see we have a great program, but then look at the conference we're in and decide to go elsewhere.

I turned off the screen the second the final goal went in, so I didn't see all the postgame BS. When did we lose Ohlmiller??

And yep, final rounds at our home field and we're not even in it. I'm seriously pissed off. Though I don't think the game being here would have made a difference at that point.

I don't get this free position thing, but hey, we're still up 2 right now.

I'll say this though, this flows much more smoothly with less interruption than your typical basketball game where it's whistle whistle whistle every 5 seconds making it unwatchable.

Rough start had me worried for a bit, but we do what great teams do, don't panic. Up 7-6 going into the half which is fantastic. I'm finding this way more entertaining than I thought it would be  ;D

Navy and Maryland are tied up 14-14 right now. It'd be HUGE if Navy could take down UMD. If we can get out of BC with a win, I'd much rather play Navy than Maryland at home.

As the announcer said at the half, this should be the national championship game, not a quarterfinal match-up.

Today is the day and the game starts in just over an hour. I"ll be here watching. Only the second women's LAX game I've ever watched, but this team is special.

I'll have to see if I can make it to that GW game. Nice pickup for the schedule.

I think Shawn will make the right move. It's time for a change in the coaching staff.

Nagle in principle was a good hire- local guy with DI credentials. However he just hasn't been able to take this program to where it needs to go. How much longer can they wait for him? There is some good young talent on this team and I want to see them develop with a new coaching staff.

Stony Brook should be a top 15 program nationally every year.

Thereís nothing more to say.

Agreed. It's time to say bye bye.

The Cartel Five don't want the little guy winning or even having a chance. I say let's win it all on our home field and shut all the naysayers up. It's criminal what the committee has been allowed to get away with.

see the link i posted above about the human element.  the cmte admits they arent necessarily allowed to "eyeball" the selections.  and the polls arent necessarily factored in.  the polls are what the pollsters think are the rankings.  the RPI is done by CPU and that's what (mostly) drives the seedings.

that, and other factors.  for example- see geography.  see the men's side where bobby mo was TEN slots of RPI in front of richmond, and yet bobby mo gets the play in game.  why?  there's a 400 mile rule in place.  it's why denver goes to ND.  it's why cornell plays at syracuse.  it's why UVa plays at loyola.  they can only do so many 400+ mile flights.

also keep in mind one minor difference- the women's game has a larger field (27) and more teams and a larger presence in the midwest and west coast (south too).  therefore, QF sites are scattered better.  whereas the men's side, most of it is the 95 corridor.  thus, north is hofstra, south is navy.  and so your top 4 seeds might get the advantage of being near those sites (or, if hosting, a home game!).

I get it that schools want to save on travel costs, but this is postseason play with national championships on the line. They do this non-sense in the FCS playoffs too. Give one team a harder bracket just because they're closer to another team.

Looking at the teams that are in on the men's side: UVA, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Cornell, Denver..... none of those schools are hurting for money I can tell you that much. If damn Chicago St. can afford to fly their teams all over the country for WAC basketball when the state of Illinois didn't even give them a budget... I think most well funded D1 programs could afford another flight or two, just a thought.



The AE conference is the kiss of death. I've been preaching that for years and a few on this board always disagree. Well people. The proof is in the putting. SBWL got hosed because of this conference.

True, but Hofstra has been blocking us from the CAA forever. Maybe if we win the national title, it could be enough of a catalyst to get the rest of the league to add us for all sports. It'd be the cherry on top of what we already offer.

The ladies got robbed... again!

This time more obvious than ever!

As I posted on FB earlier. I'm sure the Committee placed them as 5th seed because it didn't want an easy path for Stony Brook. If Stony Brook was anything higher than a fifth seed they would be hosting the second round and the QF (if they win against Penn St. /UPenn) and then play at home the rest of the way (Semifinals/Championship hosted at LaValle) assuming they win. This is a big IF and we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves... But the NCAA is avoiding a non-power 5 getting such a path at all costs.
Iím not sure considering the NCAA gave Albany (non-power 5) a 2 seed despite a bad loss. One poster on laxpower suggested thereís an inherent bias against ladies teams with male coaches.

You've got to be kidding me lol. What a time to be alive! How people can be so petty is beyond me, but there ya go I guess. They must hate what Geno Auriemma is doing at Uconn then.

Yep, predictably, we got screwed over again by the committee. They just don't respect anybody not in the P5 (even though JMU got the 3 seed, the hell....). It would help to get out of the AE and at least get into the CAA for everything and get the perception bump that comes with that. Damn Hofstra...

On the bright side, the final four is going to be right here at Lavalle, and even as the top seed, we'd be playing a very tough one loss team anyway, so effectively this doesn't really matter too much. Let's just win out and get that national title on our home field. BC, Maryland, JMU, UNC.... all very good teams, so I don't necessarily think we'd have dodged a bullet by getting a higher seed.

He balled out in the games he appeared in though. Why would he need to go all the way to China in order to play? Doesn't seem right.
