Very ugly game. Sekunda was sorely missed

I want to see more McKenzie. He's not very exciting, but I think that's what this team needs

Let the Boals watch begin.....


Oh I'm watching alright. I want to point to last year was still mostly Pikiell's guys.

I think I am with you. I'll past judgement at the end of this season for certain

nice win for UML.  they deserved it.  maybe weve hit bottom.  lots of games/time left to sneak into the tournament and maybe pull an upset. 

hard to see how it can get worse.  PS vermont beats albany.

GO SB

We could easily be 1-6 in league play, if we lost 1st 2 games against ME and Hart. Iíll say it just one more time; overall, this team has more talent than last yearís team, imo. There is little consistent flow on the offensive side of the ball, we make too many panic mistakes, the lineup seems consistently haphazard and capricious, and the FT shooting just plain sucks. Coach has taken 1 giant step backwards this year, and we desperately miss Ďol Woodhouse, who was such a stabilizing force last year.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

Horrible loss. This team is deeply, deeply flawed. Boals succeeded last year due to Pikiell players especially Nyama/Yeboah and most importantly Woodhouse.

His recruits have not done much of note with the exception of Cornish. Iroegbu is an OK player but would not be starting on most AE teams. Saintel is a solid depth player. So far the freshman class has disappointed- with the exception of Olaniyi, not sure if you can say any of them have had an impact. Even worse is the fact that I feel several have regressed from the Pikiell era- Sturdivant and Sekunda have not improved. The free throw shooting has been downright embarrassing all year- that's gotta be on the coaches. Only reason this game went to OT was our horrible FT shooting.

Obviously, he's not going anywhere but this team needs a LOT of help. Next year is a big year for him as the team will be largely composed of his guys at that point. Stony Brook is a very good mid-major job so we should not accept mediocrity.

our starting big had a goose egg for o-boards, in 34min.  a commentary on where his priority is???

petras?  3 in only 11min.  why not experiment, keep him in the paint and maybe we get a few putbacks.

this saturday night- i expect a steamrolling from albany.  that'll be nice in front of the home crowd.

Well...amid a long series of poor performances since the Norfolk debacle, this was probably the worst. I think a lot of you were there already, but this one shifted my brain to next year. This team, for whatever or numerous reasons, seems cooked.

So in that spirit of looking ahead, my Silver Linings:

Good to see Olaniyi get back to having a pretty solid game. I say start him and play him 20 plus minutes from here on.

And...Mackenzie had a very solid game. He's not a scorer and he'll need to become at least an honest threat, but he played some solid defense and distributed the ball smartly in ways that no other SBU player can. He's got work to do, but I think he played more within himself and showed what he can bring to the team.

To add, Ochefu needs to play. I know I don't know anything about all that goes on during the week, but I'm ready to say these three freshman need minutes and experience to build for next year. Yes, even throw them to the UA and UVM wolves this year and let them get stomped. Give Yeboah his 20-30 points a game so he's a first-teamer. UVM ain't losing again until the NCAAs anyway, so what's it matter...

Totally agree MD. From What we have seen Boals recruits are not even D1.
He showed his true colors at the end if the 2nd half without calling a timeout to set up the floor for the win.. I really have my doubts with Boals and his assistance

im ok with mack starting if it means we dont chuck panic threes.

we just dont move the ball.  if we did, we might create some offense. 

heck at this point, convert saintel or yeboah into a post player, back to the rim.  at least theyre getting the boards and will play physical.

on defense, should anyone from UML drop 30 on us???

a reminder that one can practice FTs outside of organized practice.

I gotta say we were all spoiled by the last few years. Sturdivant is a solid bench player but it was a lot expecting him to step in for Warney- his defense has been subpar and he was a turnover machine today. We just don't have anything resembling decent interior defense and arguably our best rebounder is our PG. That's a problem- next year's recruiting class better be a home run. I think last year's team was more talented- Nyama and Woodhouse would easily be the 2 best players on this team.

Albany will dominate on Saturday. Again, its a shame because we have a very good fan base that is used to a much better product.

Hey at least the women's team looks like its turned the corner!

Go primarily with the underclassmen the rest of the way. MacKenzie looked pretty good tonight, and we've seen flashes from Olaniyi and Garcia. Let them take their lumps and build off of that for next year

Agree with those sentiments. We are losing games to UM-Lowell with our senior classmen. It's time to see what talent we have in the wings. It's January and these freshmen have had plenty of time to soak in the game. I want to see Ochefu, Olaniyi, and Garcia get big minutes going forward. I want Corry Long to get some playing time too hopefully this year.
