We can only hope the conference improves and maybe we can see upsets of this big matchups in the next few years.

Its hard for me to understand how a group of mid-size/large State University cannot be a top 15 conference. There should be no reason while the CAA/A10 are so ahead of the AE in RPI every year. Now that UNH has a pulse our league needs to create a long-term strategy

Maybe this is just my opinion and maybe it's harsh but ... in most cases, we're talking about programs with little to no tradition, many in terrible gyms and ordinary facilities, frigid weather in the middle of nowhere or in crummy cities, playing in front of sparse crowds, amid a population that couldn't care less about college sports, and in states/regions that aren't rich in basketball talent.

It’s going to be a dog fight in conference play this year. There no way UVM will go 16-0. UNH, UMBC, UA and SB... going to fight hard and all capable of beating UVM. Vermont still the favorite. No doubt about that. But others have improved.

Alonzo Campbell averaging almost 10 points a night on 64 percent shooting for Paris JC. His 22 and 9 in the team's 137-51 win over Dallas Diesel pads the numbers a bit.

Glad to see he's getting some run.

The reputation of Pikiell takes another major hit with a loss to a very mediocre team in Hartford.  I guess the key to winning isnít clapping your hands over 3,000 times a game?

What a horrible stretch. Any hopes of it being done overnight at Rutgers is out the window. And another brutal night at the line for Pikiell's group Ė 8 for 19 against us, 12 for 22 against Hartford, both two-point losses.

Hartford might be all right this year. Carroll and Dunne is a good 1-2 punch. Maybe they can get to 8-8 in conference?

Major blow to Rutgers basketball program this year. There's always next season, right??

Pikiell will bounce back he always . Rutgers is about two season away from respectability in the Big 10

He knew what he was getting into. Rutgers is a dumpster fire in every major sport. They're in a power conference with power conference money yet look lost many years in many sports. He'll at least make them respectable.

We arenít talking about losses to Big10 teams, but about losses to mediocre teams from a mediocre conference.  These losses are inexcusable, especially at home.  No pass for Coach Pikiell on these losses.  His game day strategy is rearing itís ugly head.
If it wasnít for Warney not listening to the coaching in the 2nd half against Vermont and just taking over the game, Pikiell would have 0 NCAA appearances. 
The best thing about Pikiell is that he cared about the basketball careers of his players after they graduated from Stony Brook!

Albany down big again, this time at UNH. Odd start for them. Letís see if they can pull it out somehow.
