it looks like its final 71-70 SB on a last minute three from UC.

Pretty much the worst win of all time. But a win nevertheless.

We were up by 20 when I checked the score earlier. What the hell happened? How do we get beat like that in the second half.


Also, LOLbany loses to Hartford. The AE is just nuts sometimes.

SBU looked pretty much like the best team in the AE for about 20 mins tonight, but then there's the other 20 mins...

They almost faded away into the sunset again big time .  Struggling to hold a 20 point lead as we shot blanks and Maine sank 3s .  Add in numerous 2nd half turnovers  but we held on in regulation by 1 point. Ugly night all around .

Hold on to your shorts, fans!!. Hartford could be the fly in the ointment. With Lamb out for Vermont and Albany not showing up to play, this conference is up for grabs..

I said it at the beginning of the season. SB is lucky to finish .500 this year and possibly last in the conference, or close to it..

We have absolutely no inside presence, zero, zilch..That is because we have no "go to guy" or big who can man handle that paint.. I dont want to hear Petras should be that guy. He's not.. Petras was being overpowered and out rebounded by Maine 6' tall guards last night, again... We suck at shooting the three ball and totally disastrous at the foul line, outside of Yeboah nobody else can make foul shots on a consistent basis..

This team looked lost last night and there was no leadership on the floor or bench.

I hope Boals can take control of this team. After this year, the majority of the players are all his. No more living in the shadows of Pikiel..

In the postgame, Boals cited how they shot too many threes against Norfolk State but kinda sorta justified the 28 threes this time. If I counted correctly, we were up 56-36 with 12 minutes left and went 0 for 7 from three until UC’s make. We had eight turnovers in that stretch, which I’m more alarmed by.

Most notably, Cornish really struggled - 2 points, 0 assists, 5 turnovers and 4 fouls in just 16 minutes. He wasn’t even on the floor at the end; instead, Boals went with Iroegbu to run the point, and he did that for a lot of the game with Cornish in foul trouble. Almonacy got back in there finally, and Mac was a DNP-CD for the first time. As a result, j thought the offense lacked flow in the second half, which contributed to the meltdown along with Maine making seemingly shot after shot late.

For those who didn’t see the game, we were up 68-66 and Calixte buried a long three right as the whistle blew underneath. Initially they waved off the basket, but then gave it to him AND put Fleming on the line for a foul on Akwasi away from the ball. It was a crazy sequence. The whole crowd was like “we’re seriously going to cough this up?” Or at least I was. Anyway, Fleming missed the second of two, and UC, on a broken play (same play as the Rutgers game; Maine sniffed it out) buried the game-winner.

The freshmen have taken a back seat. Three DNPs and only 11 minutes from Olaniyi.

If Sekunda is going to be out there for 26 minutes, he needs more than four shots. That’s what he does best. A nice drive and floater by him to put us ahead 68-66.

Cheerleaders and dance team had great halftime routines.

I thought during the "Good SBU" stretches they did a nice job of...I guess I'll use the word "establishing" an inside presence first before taking outside shots. As COB noted, I do think we have a platoon of players who can be effective inside (for the AE), Yeboah being the primary force (and I wish Sturdy would plant inside rather than roaming around the 3, which makes me nervous every time he touches the ball). SBU did well the first ten minutes or so running a set offense while appearing to look/throw inside first before kicking out for some open shots.

From where I sit, leadership appears to be lacking. Boals seems to still be experimenting with combinations on the floor, and when a game shifts/goes south as they always will SBU players seem like they look to each other for someone to do something. They toss up 3's hoping a couple will stop the bleeding and they over-rotate on defense leaving guys open for shots. I don't know...I guess this is still a "young" team despite the first-year players not playing much recently? It seems natural that a ball handler should take on a leadership role. We had a pretty long run of Dougher/Coley/Jackson/Tre/Woodhouse players who, better or worse, handled game management. This SBU team has a lot of talented, athletic guards but I don't see anyone taking a leadership role, yet. (note Calixte played all 40 mins for Maine, a steady, aggressive leader all game).

Four obvious candidates in Cornish, UC, Almonacy, Mac. Playing time among this group has fluctuated wildly this season, and I don't know if a platoon of these guys is going to cut it in terms of making a serious run in March. I think someone has to develop or step up as *the* guy to lead the team.

What a wacky ending to this game and a head-scratching loss by UA on the first night (speaking of shooting, Hartford went 50% from the field including 3's and 100% from the foul line). I couldn't keep track of what happened with that potential 5-point play by Maine. I thought the 3-pt shot went up after the whistle, but I guess he was in the process of shooting? I have no idea what happened with the foul call on the opposite side of the shot. Crazy. And then was Calixte tripped at the end or did he just fall down? That 2.5 seconds felt like it lasted two minutes with him weaving through SBU players at breakneck speed.

Based on last night it feels now that even without Lamb UVM will go undefeated in AE, but no doubt things will swing wildly in some other direction in a week. Maybe everyone goes 8-8 this year?

This game can be analyzed ad nauseum but the fact is that SB has basically lost twice in a row (Maine might as well have been a loss), and at home, to two teams in the bottom 20 of 350 DI teams. I never thought this team would be playing at the cellar level again at this point in the program.

while i agree with fred- i'll go one further- they toss up threes even when leading.  big and late.  or at any time really.

Stony Brook is in a very weak conference, in which they’ll have a chance to win/lose every night.  My prediction is that they can finish anywhere from second to sixth.

By the way, last night our Conference ROY candidate played 0 seconds.

No more talk on Petras, who is a back-up senior.  He plays 10-14 minutes a game  and grabs a couple of rebounds and scores a couple of buckets.  The ones you should be talking about by name are on the starting frontline in Sturdivant (senior clown) and Saintel (too passive), who each average under 5 rebounds a game.
