Albany is 0-2 and Maine beat Binghamton.

A chance to go two games up on UA already? Pretty good spot to be in tonight.

UA loses despite having a 27-6 edge on free throw attempts. Big day for the UNH bench.

Crazy start to conference play .  Great chance for SBU tonight just don't blow it  with the SBU  fade out around 7 or minutes.

UA started 0-3 in AE last year.

Here's my take at this very early stage: EVERYbody stinks in the AE this year except UVM, and UVM ain't that great either.

Go SBU!

Oh LOLbany. 0-2 in league play!!

It's anyone's game in the AE come tournament time as often seem to be the case at first glance. Keep an eye on UMBC, they're just chugging along doing their thing right now, but will probably be dangerous later.

Never concerned with UMBC with their lack of discipline and uncontrolled offense.  In the past, their defense has been poor at best, but may have improved this season. Nothing this season or the last several seasons indicate UMBC  will be a dangerous this season. Lastly, their best players are seniors, which probably means are horrible record in 2018-19.

95% certain it happens.

The coach can leave at any point and time with no consequence, so why not the players too? Sure it will suck to lose kids to the bigger schools, but regular students can transfer too, so why not the athletes as well?

Not  a problem let them go .  I wouldn't worry about our football program maybe basketball will  loose some guys if this pans out.  Should be interesting .

Tough way for Vermont’s senior class to go out. I know MTSU is good and that UVM was still shell-shocked by Lyles’ buzzer beater, but that was atrocious. I’ll not miss any of them.

Hartford got bludgeoned by San Diego in the CIT, so it looks like the AE’s relative weakness is showing in the postseason. My pick is Virginia by a lot in a couple days.

Once again this conference gets killed and doesn't even put up a fight. It's just unfortunate because I believe the AE should at least be a CAA level conference just looking at who is in it. Oh well. I think I've changed my tune on us getting out of here. If we're going to go 14-19 or whatever we were this year, better to do it in a stronger league lol. If you're going to be in the weak league, you better win it every year haha.

I have been saying the same thing for years. This conference is a low mid major and consistently ends up at the bottom of the div1 year after year. The CAA is a better, stronger conference to be in for all sports. Some people on this board disagree with me and say it is only a lateral. It's not a lateral and it is a huge move up..

I believe the only way SB, or another team for that matter gets better and stronger is to compete with better teams each and every game. Staying in a conference where the RPI constantly ranks at the bottom of all div1 schools will not find you better athletes to come and play for your school. This is a fact. SB needs to run away from the AE and make that move into the CAA for all sports.. It only makes sense. Yes, SB would have to travel further south to play games, but in the long run you will get better kids who want a good education and better athletes..

This is incredible. I can’t see Virginia closing a 16-point gap with their offense. They have looked terrible and UMBC brilliant.
