SBU Hockey Team
« on: February 20, 2013, 10:31:37 am »
During halftime at the UMBC BB game last night I noticed a celebration in the lobby about SBU's hockey team championship.  I didn't even know that SBU had a hockey team!!  How come it isn't covered on the official athletics website?  Also, why isn't it included under the banner of the America East Conference?

Thanks for the info Ecasado.  I'm not an SBU alum, so I'm not always tuned in to all the details.

SB Hockey is looking to go into the NCAA Div 1 but they need a Hockey Arena. I think a Div 1  hockey team on Long Island would do very, very well. They have a petition we all can sign requesting SB go NCAA. I already signed it, i ask you guys do to!!

Its very unlikely. Division I hockey requires a huge budget.... and we need a facility. I don't think there is any plans for D-I hockey at the Brook in the near future.

The sticking point is we need a permanent hockey facility on campus. Add to that about 24-30 male scholarships. Our team is very good  -just need funding and a new building on campus.

I think SBU should seriously consider building an indoor skate rink on campus. Expensive, you betcha, but money well spent. SB could rent out the rink to dozens of junior league hockey teams all over LI and have numerous events at the school offsetting expenses associated with building and running the rink. The Arizona Sun Devils, just last season moved up to the NCAA Div1 team and already had their first win against a ranked opponent. SB used to play them every year in the club league and had some great wins...
