Thanks to the Great Coach Weber I've gotten a few glismpes of practice. Man oh man I'm salivating.
Lattimer will be AE Rookie of the year. Book it now. He's big time. Shoots it out to 26 feet effortlessly. He simply needs to wake up everyday believing he's the baddest dude on Earth to maximize his abilities,cause he has a boatload.
This team can be special.

Love it, GreatK. I sure hope you're right. Because of how early they come out, these preseason magazines can't do too much of a deep dive, but FWIW, Lindy's and Athlon each had us ranked fourth in the preseason. I'll be interested to see how the AE coaches vote.

I'd rather they sleep on us. Much less pressure when you're not the infallible favorite. I imagine most of the hype will be centered on Vermont and UMBC.

or even hartford right?

i am getting very excited.  i like that latimer can be an outside threat.  i'd like it then if we can develop a second, such that if he gets locked or faceguarded, we have options. 

if teams do respect his perimeter shot, that is going to open up a lot in the paint for yeb, ochefu, and otchere/christie.

Fordham Board is reporting a “secret scrimmage” with you guys scheduled for Oct 20. Although in the A10 the Rams are far from being a competitive A10 team. For that matter far from being a competitive team for the last 30 years.

I wouldn't put too much stock into the Magazines rankings. They pay very little attention to smaller leagues,do no research on our recruits and can't guage off season Development.
In 2016, Tennessee had a NY kid named Kevin Punter(JUCO transfer) who went from 10 PPG to 22 PPG JR to Sr year while only playing 3 more minutes per game. Only one's who could predict that drastic of improvement were the one's close to his development.

We have the most talented Roster in the league, No question about it.
I'm buying Yeboah as a perimeter threat. He shot 35% on 4.5 attempts per last season. He'll be at 38-39% on 5 attempts per this season.
Olaniyi is true to his craft and should jump from 31% to 35% , he's shooting it way better and his work ethic is something we all know about.(Media has no idea). Olaniyi looks like the type of kid that makes that year to year jump I mentioned Kevin Punter making.
If we have 3 guys shooting 35% or better from long range we'll be respected behind the line.
Which like you guys said, will clear out space for the big fellas to work down low but also it will create hard close outs for dudes like Olaniyi,Cornish and Lattimer to boogie to the basket in a straight line.

I'd like to believe this, but like others haven't seen us, we haven't seen them. That said, between Latimer and Otchere, I believe in this coaching staff's ability to recruit.

On top of the Fordham scrimmage, I think that the GW game is very much winnable. They lost a ton.

I don't want to be the Bias guy in a message board with a relationship to a player, so I don't say much about Big Jeff but let me just say this please,
He's coming along nicely, has gotten up to 240 Pounds. Has become more patient in the post, and more reliable, most of all he's learning how to defend without fouling,positioning,angling. With his God given gifts, simply doing things the right way is the answer to his troubles. Still a LONGG way to go for him to maximize his vast potential. He's covered a good amount of ground through summer and fall. Credit to the Stony Brook Coaching staff.

IM anxious to see him play this season.     I think he only gets better as he and the other new guys adjust to D1 play.  As I said many times this is a young team and as they gain experience and hone their skills as a group they will improve immensely.

I'll be at that GW game hopefully. Should be good.

consensus up in the cap district is that UA can be great, bad, or in the middle: https://www.basketballforum.com/america-east-conference/682401-albany-thread-18-19-a.html

preseason rankings: https://bustingbrackets.com/2018/09/22/america-east-basketball-preseason-rankings-2018-19/

Quote
4. Stony Brook
The Seawolves do have a number of things going for them entering the new year – guard Akwasi Yeboah is the conference’s leading returning scorer and backcourt mate Elijah Olaniyi is a national star in the making.

Those two players will have Stony Brook competing in the top half of the conference, but outside of them, there’s a lot to replace. Five of their top eight scorers from last year’s team are gone, and head coach Jeff Boals is counting on several young players to replace them. Expect Stony Brook to have a shorter rotation this year and an offense that completely centers around Yeboah, Olaniyi, and Jaron Cornish.
