Can anyone please post some new photos?
Here are a few pic's, of the gym... This was taken the day of the Championship game!!

Thanks for sharing the photos Hammer...

From the second photo .. it seems there is some space behind the scoreboard.. I hope that is not a running track ;)

Who remembers the old arena upper running track :)

I competed throughout high school on the awful indoor track. The layout was so bad, the sand from the pit would kick out onto the running surface at the worst possible spot (the turns were really tight, add the sand and you knew at least one dude was going down).

Just looking at the America East, we should be near the top again.  Albany and Vermont will always be around, but on talent, we should be in great shape.

I read that too. I also read that it's not Warney, Yikes!!!  But who could it be? Hopefully not one of our starters!

the track will return, albeit in a new and improved form...

EcasadoSBU. Any idea who that poster on the other forum is  insinuating in reference to one of our players transferring out?  I actually signed up today on that Forum under the name Seawolf nut and ask the same question. ..I'm thinking, if there's any truth to it then maybe it's Kameron Mitchell

the poster is "farfromtheshow" (Sam Perkins from onebidwonders.com) our "in-house" league reporter. the guy loves the America East and has been covering it for years for free! Very knowledgeable and knows this league inside out so I would trust whatever he says, and he knows that a kid is leaving but he cant mention who it is yet because the info is not public

Ryan Restivo from nycbuckets.com told me earlier this season that he had heard there was a good chance Ryan Burnett would transfer. Makes sense. There is a log jam at SG between Mitchell, Roland, Thrower, Braley. Also talked to Roland last week and he said as of right now the projected starting 5 next year would be PG: Puriefoy SG: Thrower SF: Walker PF: Roland C: Warney. Don't know whether to believe him, seems like a small lineup. None of this post may come true but just some tid bits of info I've heard for you guys

I could see that line up but with Sturdivant  rotating with Roland. He is big  6'8  and has bulk. We shall see come November.

If it is Mayo would that open up one slot for another scholarship offer this year??

Nope!!  Sorry, Hammer.  The reason someone has to go is because the transfer in of Lucas Woodhouse into SBU required a scholarship slot which didn't exist.  So, there is no additional slot open.

Scholarships for all sports are valid on a yearly basis. If there is one player on the team last season who didn't deserve a scholarship - it was Mayo. He was God-awful last season.

I agree. Mayo was the worst player on the team and is probably not a Div1 player either, but, do we know for sure it is Mayo? This is all hearsay at the moment. Can a school actually revoke a players scholarship because he does not live up to the teams expectations Athletically ?? Sounds Barbaric, no????
