Notables:
6-4/185 jr G Joe Cremo 17.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.7 apg, .474 FG%, .860 FT%, .472 3-pt FG%
6-6/235 gs F Travis Charles 15.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, .580 FG%, .823 FT%
6-0/190 jr G David Nichols 14.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.3 spg, .348 3-pt FG%
6-7/255 sr F Greig Stire 8.0 ppg, 8.1 rpg, .551 FG%
6-6/220 jr F Devonte Campbell 7.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, .809 FT%

This would be a big pick-me-up if we can find a way to pull it out. Not sure I see it though.

Cremo's hit a bit of a lull, scoring eight points apiece in their last two games  an 11-point loss at Vermont and incredible 44-point win over UMBC upstate. Nobody's worried about him or the team though. To have three guys up near 15 points a night is such a luxury. If Akwasi has an off night or gets into foul trouble, we don't really have a plan B, do we?

In our last meeting, UA did everything that they usually do to us ... clamp down on defense, control the glass, take and make free throws.

We need the community and we need the students. Big Saturday night game.

I think we learn a lot about our guys tomorrow. Are they down and out like a lot of us? Or can they rise to the occasion in front of what we hope is a formidable crowd at IFCU?

Talking with another season ticket holder today we did come to an agreement, although the best we could come up with was either:

A) UA blows our doors off and wins by, oh, 30 or so.
B) SBU pulls themselves together, inspired, and wins a tight one by hitting one of those buzzer-beaters they used to pull off.

Probably a lot of you are thinking the same thing. No telling, and yet feels like a game that will solidify either who they are or what they might still be capable of.

BTW, as always thanks for these previews Checkmate. Great stuff.

Thanks. It's tough to come up with something new about UA. We know all the players and know what they're all about.

My feeling is we either fall behind by a lot early and crawl back into it only to lose by 8 ... or are neck and neck with them for 30 minutes only to crumble and lose by 8. I'm hoping that our guys surprise us here, but if you line our team up against theirs, it's difficult to see where we have any kind of advantage.

Prediction- SB up by 6 in the final minutes, makes every single FT down the stretch, and wins by 12.

LOLOL, I love it!  You forgot to include the 2nd part of this - I get a position on the staff as "Assistant Head Coach, in Charge of Practice FT Shooting", for my innovative approach in getting this FT thing turned around  ;D

And yes, thanks Checkmate for your invaluable pre-game work!

Yes Checkmate s info is always appreciated thank you.  On paper we are slightly bigger than Albany and should  dominate  on the glass and in the paint but we know better . If we fall behind by anything more than 10 points I don't see us coming back with the team we have . We need to open a real lead and hold it if that's possible.

First legit crowd of the year. Thank goodness.

Wish that Cremo misfired on that three at the end of the half. Nine feels substantial; six insubtantial.

Pretty good to be in front without anything from Yeboah to this point. I hope we can replicate the intensity that we played with in the first half.

Brutal. Fourth on Akwasi with 16 left. Here comes UA. A million free throws coming.

Advantage UA. No way we can win a FT shooting contest with them.

The fact that this is a close game is a win in and of itself. I expected to get blown out tell you the truth. Though I'm just tuning in I'll admit.

who wants to talk about the last 80 seconds here. 

we flubbed an inbounds pass (yes).  then we had a chance to catch up, even the announcer said all we need was a 2, and we took a terrible three (guess who, our big).  then it goes the other way for 2.  then another three we missed.  then another in the waning seconds that barely hit rim. 

we ended up 6/22.  so with those 16 misses... ah forget it.

Never mind the shot clock violation where we would have been better off had play continued since we had a 3-1 advantage off the fast break.


All in though, those final two minutes were atrocious. These hail-mary threes we take every game need to be reigned in.
