Not sure, but this could be the best team the AE conference has had since the good Hofstra teams, years ago.

I had a quick chat with coach Steve Prikiel today at my son's Boys and Girl's club Basketball game at Mount Elementary School.... He has a son in 2nd grade who plays basketball and is a All Star kid from what I've been told...  I just congratulated him with winning the AE and being in the First seed and wished him good luck in the Playoffs... Not much more besides small talk but Coach prikiel is a real down to earth guy and he will talk to anyone anytime....     

Good Luck Coach and SB Basketball in the playoff's and lets get this done this year and get into the NCAA. maybe with some luck a 13 seed !!!!

"With that success comes other benefits. Stony Brook’s $21 million dollar new arena is ahead of schedule Pikiell said. He hopes to be in there before the scheduled opening in the fall of 2014."

I LIKE!!!!

I cant wait for the day that Arena is finally completed. It's funny how Prichard said they are ahead of schedule... That Arena should have been completed already and I can't remember how many times the state postponed  the start of construction due to other projects going on and they took the Arena Funds to complete them !!!!  That's water under the bridge and SB Basketball will only get bigger and stronger when future players see this beautiful Arena and want to play here !!!

Rumor has it - if we get the chance to host the AEC championship in 2014, we will host it in the new arena

I really love the direction SB basketball and the other sport programs are going.. Read the last paragraph where Steve talks about how SB Football is expanding the Stadium. WAS THAT A HINT... Did anyone else hear about expansion of Lavelle ?????

The University  has about $6 million  coming to it  from the state. The plan is to add about 2200 seats  so we go over 10k in seating. When the state releases the money is another story  - we know how that goes. But yes our stadium will expand a  plan is in place  already.

My guess is nothing is going to happen this year with the expansion . AS of last week no signs of any work on the stadium. Not even a CAA Banner or writing on the Turf.!!!

So by filling out the bowl, you mean the north end zone where the red tarp currently is?  Looks like 2200 seats to me!  Great news.

I also heard a few years back that they were going to fix up some of the press boxes to have doors opening forward onto terraces.  That hasnt gone anywhere and im not sure it will.
