Tuning in for the last five minutes here. Kind of liking what I'm seeing. We have a propensity for choking though, so let's not have that happen today. I believe we move up to 5th in the AE with a win.

I'll be busy so I won't watch. It'd be nice to sneak out a win against a rival SUNY school, but that's really all we've got going for us here .

We're 9-16 with a 4-7 record in a low major conference. This is likely our worst season in at least a decade. The bad attendance isn't shocking at all. Hard to expect large crowds when you're having a year like this one.

I find it unbelievable that we lack name recognition in NYC when that's our primary market and we're the closest SUNY flagship to the city. We have to do better than that.

Didn't watch a second of this game, but seeing the W makes me happy. Also glad to hear we didn't just shoot hail mary threes all game like we usually do.

Last time we played UML was an embarrassment in an elementary school gym. No good reason to think so, but I think at home we manage to sneak out a win against them.

I might be wrong (and I guess this is part of the conversation this year for us) but I don't think the men play an 8/9 game. I think the AE women do, however. For the men I think they simply *ahem* do not invite the last place team to the party.

Anyone know, is that correct?

I wondered the same thing, but simply guessed that they'd follow the same format as the women. I can't think of a good reason why they wouldn't.

Correct. Last place team in the AE goes golfing. Their season is over..

Sent a note to the AE, which confirmed this. No 8/9 game.

Good. There shouldn't be. I even laugh at the P5 conferences who invite all 14 teams to the tourney sometimes. At least there those are stronger programs who have a shot at the at large. At the low-mid major level, there's really no good reason your conference tourney should go past 8 teams. I'd argue it should be that way in general. Make the regular season at least mean something.

 All things considered, we had a good run from 09-2016, so I really can't complain too much.

Guess only time will tell, but wondering if this year is a down-year blip or perhaps where this program is and we're in for a long rebuild. In hindsight it feels more and more like a lot of energy went into the Warney run-up that squeaked us into one tournament, and maybe last year we were just lucky to have a supreme floor leader who willed us to a bunch of wins in close games.

In the best cases players grow and mature at a reasonable rate, and I have a hard time imagining the returning players at SBU in the near future (no matter the freshman coming in) suddenly hanging with the always top two programs or pretty much the entire Hartford team coming back.

Kudos to Hartford. They look good this year, and I really hope somebody can push UVM at least a little bit down the stretch.

Yeah, a lot of down faces and frustration among SBU players *and* coaches right now. For anyone still hanging around to watch the final games this year, feels like it's going to be more of the same.

We had turned the corner as a program and began competing for the AE before Warney got here though. Maybe it's the players, the coaching, or both that are missing right now, but we won't be down long. We have the largest athletic budget in this conference by a considerable margin and have great facilities, and a great athletic reputation. We're playing in the America East, not the Big East. We won't be down for very long. These next couple seasons will be rough I'd imagine, but we'll get this thing turned around before long. The football team will just have to step up and carry the banner for the university (which is how it should be anyway).

Not watching anymore games this season. The outcome was what I expected (a loss), but the reactions in this thread make the loss seem even worse than the score would indicate. Not good.

I'm actually excited for spring sports this season as I believe our WLAX team has a legitimate shot at a national title. Even in WLAX that'd be a great win for the school. Basketball is terrible this season, but even some of the best programs have down years. All things considered, we had a good run from 09-2016, so I really can't complain too much.

Watching this team is pain...

I think I need to just stop. It's a lost season anyway.

Never mind the shot clock violation where we would have been better off had play continued since we had a 3-1 advantage off the fast break.


All in though, those final two minutes were atrocious. These hail-mary threes we take every game need to be reigned in.

The fact that this is a close game is a win in and of itself. I expected to get blown out tell you the truth. Though I'm just tuning in I'll admit.

is this the year we dont make the AE tourney?

Not sure if UML is eligible yet this year, but if so, I would expect an 8-9 play-in game, no?  I know it's not on anyone's schedule, but if memory serves correct, UML isn't eligible to next year.  I may be wrong.
The transition up from D2 is a five year process and this is year five for them so they're fully eligible now. I'd assume the AE does an 8-9 play-in game. We're pathetic if we can't even get a 7 seed and avoid that game though. I think we'll finish better than that. As bad as we are this year, there are some real gutter tier programs in this conference.
