i do agree that we looked a bit better against UNH.  this should be a tight game.  hopefully we've got the lineup straight (it's now late Feb) and i want to see ochefu (or even petras) in the paint playing physical.  go get 'em SB.

As disappointing as the season's been, we're still looking at no more than two weeks left until a long spring and summer before the 2018-19 tipoff.

So let's try to leave ourselves with a good taste in our mouths heading into the offseason. It will be tough, as we're likely in line for UMBC, Vermont and Hartford/Albany over the next (and likely final) three. The UNH game was a good start. We saw good energy from the guys in the second half – desperation really – and some nice moments from the freshmen. And geez, based on what Ball is telling us on the recruiting thread, we are going to steamroll people next year!

Some perspective on the job that Odom has done in his two seasons there. UMBC will be looking for its second consecutive 20-win season, this after winning 21 last year thanks to a run to the CIT semifinals. With this victory, that would bring their win total to 41 over the last two seasons ... or the same number of wins they had over the previous seven (2009-10 to 2015-16). They haven't won 20 in back to back years since 1978-79 and 1979-80, and if they win out and reach the conference title game, they'll tie the 2007-08 record of single-season wins (24). Long story short, we'll see how long he's there, particularly when you consider that Lyles and Maura are gone after this year. On the flipside, a nice new gym and some really good momentum. I tend to think that if a good opportunity arises he'll jump ship.

Part of it is that UMBC's offense looked so so fluid in their game up here. We were in that game, but that's in part because UMBC shot it so poorly. And they were open shots. In their gym, I think a few more of those go in and they beat us by double digits. Also, if Cornish is out, that likely leaves us with just Mac and UC to run the point. UMBC's guards are a nuisance, and a freshman and a fringe PG don't figure to fare well in that environment.

What's strange about this year for UMBC is that they've taken some BAD losses, in particular the loss by 44 at Albany, and the 28-point annihilation at the hands of Vermont at home in the debut of their new arena. The Catamounts shot 66% from the field in that one, including 21 for 27 from two. I watched a few minutes of that and UMBC was up on them early. Must have unraveled from there. Then again, maybe that's us in a few days #gulp

What I hope on Wednesday is that we see some of what we saw against UNH – an aggressive UC, an aggressive MacKenzie, crashing the boards, forcing turnovers, etc. And then for Akwasi to return to form after a couple of off nights.

Seawolves dropped the last of the 4 game series at Nichols St last night 14-7 .  At 3-1  they are looking pretty good now.

just wanted to mention how much improvement we've seen from daly.  he's gone from a second middie to a team leader, his bull dodge looks like corpo's, his shot is improved, and in both losses he's taken the team on his back and put in a goal in a time of need.  he's going to be a factor for us this year and next.

it's nice to see an athlete come of age in an era where kids either start right away, or transfer.

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.
There’s no reason SB shouldn’t 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...


Looking forward to watching the game tonight on Big Ten Network. Newsday had the game 2 goals apart in 4th quarter before wheels fell off

I just looked at the 2017 All Long Island Lacrosse Teams:
3 going to Maryland
3 to Virginia
3 to Cornell
3 to Stony Brook
2 to Hopkins, Hofstra and Duke
rest of list is just 1 kid per school

I might be wrong but thats pretty good for SB. Need to see it on the field but the talent is getting recruited.

That's an impressive haul- gotta turn that recruiting success into production on the field.

They are fun to watch .  This could be another great season for them if they continue to play as they have been so far.
