2011/12: Game 3 Stony Brook @ Sacred Heart
« on: November 14, 2011, 07:27:25 pm »
Tomorrow we are going to face off against Sacred Heart. The game will be on www.wusb.fm/listen and starts at 7pm.

Last year we lost to Sacred Heart at the Prit 75-66. I have a feeling the outcome of this game will be in our favor.

Any thoughts?

I'm actually really excited about this team. I think everyone is playing at a higher level than a year ago. Bryan looks better with the ball in his hands than he did last year. Joyner and Rapier look so much better inside than they did last year. Brenton brings so much to this team. He really is our point forward and gets the team going on both sides of the ball. Despite the game getting ugly at Indiana, I think we're going to see a much better Stony Brook team this year.

I'm hoping  for a good road win  to get us on the right foot.  Bye the way Boston University  got smacked Sunday afternoon at Texas. Final  Texas Longhorns 89  BU  46. So I dont feel so bad about Indiana since BU is supposed to be our biggest competition in the AE.  We  at  least put up 66 points and didnt commit 21 turnovers.

We need this win. Its Sacred Heart. We need to defeat them. We can't fall to them again like with did last year.

We need wins against Sacred Heart and Columbia. If we can beat this two teams, that will definitely be improvement considering both were losses last year

I'm already doubting how good this team is... I dont want to be a pessimist. But we are playing horrible... Is it going to take a whole season to get descent like last year?

we did better than hartford did against them... idk, lets let pikiell figure out what needs to be done, and consider him a genius when we finish 14-2 in conference (calling it) (okay, maybe 11-5 (Still calling it))

Listen, the pessimists on this board have a point after this game. SB basketball has been underachieving (for a major research university) for a long time. There should be no losses to the Sacred Hearts of the NCAA. And while making the NCAA Tournament is very possible, that won't necessarily be the turning point in this program. UMBC made it back in 2008 and they're back in the cellar with single digit win seasons. I'll save my optimism for football, for now.

Definitely a disappointing loss. It's strange because individually almost everyone looks better than last year, but the team as a whole hasn't come together. Defense and rebounding has been questionable, which is uncharacteristic of Pikiell's teams. Bracey seems to be struggling with the speed of the Division 1 game. Both Hayes and Dougher haven't been shooting that well. Jackson and Coley both look much better than last year, but both need to turn the ball over less. Offensively Joyner looks better than he ever has. I think Pikiell and his staff will go through the film, finalize the rotation, and fix the wholes in their defense. There is talent here and I think Pikiell will put it together.

I agree that the program has/is underachieving for a major research university, but that's what makes being Stony Brook fan so much fun. In my opinion, this school has unlimited potential, and the administration realizes this and is taking steps capitalize on it. With the Dubin Center under construction, the funds freed for the arena renovation, and the recent recruiting success, the program is only getting better. Also, most major research universities would never agree to an away game Sacred Heart, so this loss is kind of unique to Stony Brook in that regard.

I think any SB fan has every right to be disappointed right now.  Last night's loss should not have happened.  That being said, IMO there is too much talent, both on the bench and court, for them to be anything less than a contending team in the AE.  I still expect them to be there at the end of the season.  However, they must cut down on the TO's, specifically from Jackson/Coley.  7 last night between them is wayyyyy too much.  Joyner must also do a better job of passing out of double teams, as he's turning it over too much.  I suspect this is the first time he's had this much attention from double teams, etc., and he will get better as the season goes on.  Also, they must find a way to get Bracey untracked.  He MUST be a consistent threat offensively, and to me it's obvious that his defense (or lack thereof) is contributing to his minutes (9 last night) on the court.  Pikiell demands defense, but in Bracey's defense, it doesn't appear that anyone is playing it well.  Finally, rebounding must improve or else.....I'd add one more thing:  someone must be able to facilitate other than Brenton.  Without a guard (Martin last year) able to get into the teeth of the defense and draw help defenders, this team will see nothing but man-man defenses, as opponents will just stay home on the shooters (Hayes, Bracey, Rouse) and take their chances with dribble penetration.  Overall, way too early to panic, but certainly not too early to be concerned.  Next Tuesday vs. Columbia at home is a must win, especially with Northwestern looming on the horizon...

I was pretty dissapointed/pissed. I slept on it, now I'm ok. Its part of being a fan. The loss was a bad one.

Just hope that we can beat Columbia at home! that would be good

Looks like Columbia's best player is hurt (1st team All-Ivy last year), and may be out for the season, so you should be good.

Columbia is a must win with Northwestern next week. I dont want to go to Chicago 1-3.  Hopefully we will see a turn around next Tuesday night. And  I'm always optimistic  but last night was a letdown.
