Notables:
6-7/230 sr F Tanner Leissner 19.7 ppg, 8.3 ppg, .355 3-pt FG%, .781 FT%
6-9/230 sr F Iba Camara 9.4 ppg, 11.0 rpg, .482 FG%
6-7/230 gr F Jacoby Armstrong 7.8 ppg, 4.2 rpg, .811 FT%
6-0/190 jr G Jordan Reed 7.5 ppg, .352 3-pt FG%
6-1/190 so G John Ogwuche 5.8 ppg, .500 3-pt FG%, .889 FT%

As we've seen over and over the last few years, everything is going to run through Leissner. He's a no frills, blue-collar kid who's going to battle underneath, get to the line a million times, and knock down shots from the perimeter on occasion. A Tyler Hansbrough kind of player. Unlike some of our bigs, he's been uber consistent  no fewer than 14 points in any game this year, and a high of 32 in UNH's win over in-state foe Dartmouth. If he was a Seawolf all this time, we'd all love him.

Between him, Camara and Armstrong, their size is very difficult to ignore, and whether we can rebound in spite of that size will go along way in determining our success. UNH isn't a team that's going to blow anybody out, and they likely won't get blown out either. Scoring is not their strong suit, not with an ugly .415 shooting percentage.

What's even less concerning is that they flat-out do not turn the other team over. On the surface, you'll see that they force 10-plus turnovers a game, but take out the 23 turnovers by Wheelock and the 29 by Lyndon State, and you have a team that has forced double-digit turnovers just three times this year  10 against Dartmouth, Albany and Vermont. Turnovers have been a major weakness for us this year, so if we can hold onto the ball, I like our chances.

One wild card is the emergence of the kid Ogwuche. His minutes were up and down to start the season, but he's really come on of late, dropping in a team-high 17 against Vermont yesterday. That broke his previous career high from three days earlier when he went for 15 in a win at UMass Lowell. He's hit 9 of his last 15 threes dating back to the Dartmouth game on 12/30. Just something to keep an eye on. They may have found themselves a shooter for the next three years.

It's with only modest enthusiasm that I say that I think we go up there and win this one.

leissner has been one of my favorites to watch over the years.  a really nice complete player inside.  a first teamer for sure.

our squad is getting harder to predict- who'll get minutes, who will handle the ball, who will be our bigs inside (if any), who will get into foul trouble.

This is  going to be a tough one for our guys .    I  could easily see UNH  grabbing a win at home.

UNH by 4. If we win this one I think we have a shot at a top 2 seed (similar to my feeling after last seasons game at UNH).

Always liked that hard-working Leissner, and if SBU cannot make a miracle run through the AE playoffs down the road I hope he and UNH can be strong contenders.

This SBU team is impossible to predict, but my gut says they drop this one and maybe get UNH at home for the next one.

Yikes. How many dreadful events and performances can a team string together and still end up one bucket away from winning, but then cannot help themselves but to pile on more dread to make sure they never get that final shot off....

Hey, I'll add this:

If by March SBU can do even mildly better at only half the things they're doing poorly right now, that might get to the championship game at UVM and then you never know what might happen on that one morning.

Air balls,  terrible on  the foul line , fouls and just sloppy play .   Hopefully they get better next year  this years team does not deserve to go anywhere they just stink up the gym . Congrats to Petras he had a career game !

SB really needs to abandon the alley-oop to Saintel.
