Does anyone know what the story is with Director of  Basketball Operations Alioune Ndiaye?  He suddenly no longer appears on the WBB coaching staff list.

SBU Men's Basketball / 2018-19 schedule
« Last post by Checkmate on July 13, 2018, 06:29:00 pm »
I think if we didnít play who we did last year, weíd all be pretty psyched about this lineup of opponents. The PK 80 last year was a triple - canít say itís a homer because we coughed up the UConn and Ball State games. But those were four good games. This yearís HOF Tip-off slate isnít quite as fierce and we donít have Maryland in there but overall Iím pleased with the schedule. Two CAA teams here is nice.

All at-large talk needs to cease immediately.

I think our schedule reflects  that we are still a young team and lots to learn as we go.  If everyone improves this year  then next seasons schedule  should be a little tougher.  Don't forget we have 6 new faces showing up this year and one will be a red shirt.

I agree VA. I am quite disappointed in in OOC thus far. I am not sure if coach Boals thought last year schedule was to tough on his team or if he had a tough time scheduling teams from the power 5 conf this year. Either way, or SOS will be horrible come seeding time if SB wins the AE title and we get the auto bid. That is how i see it when you have a soft OOC schedule.

Absolutely. Although that didn't seem to hurt UMBC last year  ;D The AE champ is usually a 13 or a 14 seed, so having UMBC as a 16 seed was a landmine waiting to happen for a team like UVA, which didn't have the typical overwhelming talent of a #1 seed.

Ultimately though, there's no downside and only upside to having a challenging schedule, so we should just do it.

Don't mind the easier schedule- still have some really good teams on the schedule so it will still be a test.

I do not think all of those losses at the start of the year were helpful in building confidence. I think Coach Boals decided to rein in the difficulty. Bottom line no team from the AE is getting an at-large bid.

I don't buy that at all. We had a weak team last year. We went 7-9 in the AE and lost to Norfolk St.

Conversely however, we nearly pulled off upsets against Uconn and Providence, and got a huge win against Rutgers which was the bright spot of the season. A national TV game against Michigan State was great too, and we stayed in that game for a while. Those things can't happen if we play Cupcake U, Cupcake State, Cupcake A&M, and Cupcake Tech during the non conference schedule. I'll always advocate for the tougher schedule. The AE may never put a team in the tournament as an at-large, but we're definitely not getting in as an at-large with a weak schedule. There are zero downsides to a tough OOC like we played last year. The team just needs to get better.
