SB vs Albany 5/1 730pm
« on: April 28, 2014, 09:10:12 am »
Though the game is at LaValle, the Seawolves are the road team by virtue of the fourth seed.  Playing #1 Albany, who just blew up #2 Binghamton, is a replay of an earlier contest that SB lost by 10 goals.  AE bracket here: http://www.americaeast.com/pdf9/2699888.pdf

Albany has won five in a row and no one in the conference has come close.  BC hung around for a while but the Danes opened it up and won by 4.  In five games, theyve scored 91 goals against AE opponents, for a staggering 18.5 GPG in conference.  Hartford did the best with 15 surrendered.

Which brings me to- how then did Canisius hold them to 10?  Better get that game film...

It should be rainy and cold, though the rain might stop by game time. 

While AETV will air the semis, ESPNU will show the Finals.  GO SB

If I'm Albany, I'm not happy with this draw. We're a dangerous team, way moreso than the record indicates, and we're at home. If we can control the face-offs (shouldn't be too hard) and watch the turnovers, Albany's in for a game.

Here's something scary about Stony Brook-Albany in the semifinals of the tournament: Albany's offense ranks third nationally in efficiency; Stony Brook's defense ranks 64 nationally in efficiency. The Seawolves' gigantic possession margin advantage means next to nothing if Stony Brook plays to script against the Danes. Just look at the truncated tempo-free profiles: The Seawolves are yielding -- on a 100-possession basis -- to their opposition almost as many goals as the Danes are scoring -- on a 100-possession basis -- against their opponents. That's the formula for a bloodbath, one that could see the Great Danes mirror their 17-7 shellacking of Stony Brook from earlier in the season. The Seawolves need to find a way to create defensive stops, and a major factor in determining whether Stony Brook can create those stops is in how the Seawolves and Danes control and create off-ball movement when Albany has the bean: Stony Brook's defense ranks 63rd in defensive assist rate (assists per 100 defensive opportunities); Albany's offense ranks first in offensive assist rate (assists per 100 offensive opportunities). The quality of shots that the Seawolves give up will ultimately dictate whether the team's defense can give Stony Brook enough to compete with Albany.

 Win f/o's, attack the cage and shoot a high percentage. Same formula as last yr's semi-final but with a better f/o man. The difference this yr is that Rowe can dominate. Your not going to stop them, so you have to put it on them early and try to take them out of their gm. Spinning the ball around and trying to eat up the clock won't work.

Bingo loses to BC 16-10. 

i think we all agree that we needed a game plan to beat UA.  so what have we done different so far?  for starters, first UA clear we pressed on the ride, caused a turnover, luca scores.  then possession, rogers dodge and score.  UA shoots within seconds, get the ball back, sit on it.  busted another UA clear on the ride.  long possession.  rooney wing dodge and score.  so far so good.

broke another UA clear, got flagged, big EMD save on thompson (does it matter which one?).  clear, timeout SB.  Possession, flag, possession.  lost ball, but broke up a UA fast break.  inside save against thompson.  clear.  9 minutes and we have the ball at least 7min, maybe 8.  backed up a UA shot, SB ball. 

we look like a top 10 team, methodical.  we are all thinking we shouldve done this all year.  and for the good quarters against Rutgers, MD, Duke, etc, i think we did.

one v one defense very solid.  team playing loose.  another inside save against thompson.  clear, possession.  slow break (dont see those anymore!), hughes to sichenzia for a 10 yarder.  4-0.  rowe wins, possession.  second mids.  patient O. 

ive asked all year for a quarter with no goals surrendered.  good time for it!!!

thompson drives from x, for some reason our defender had his stick downfield, behind the back goal.  rowe wins the faceoff, long possession, rogers feed inside to easty for a score, and a flag that stays.  5-1

thompson drives from x and turns and shoots with 1 sec left, scores, 5-2.

end of Q1, and the danes mustve had the ball for 3-4min.

new look with a zone in Q2.  UA zone O is to flood crease and feed from behind.  thompson drives from X and inside roll, scores.  we are sliding late, which could be purposeful.  another behind the back from thompson.  next possession for UA they score from the wing, mid range shot. 

most UA goals have been drive from X, rocker step, behind the back or inside shot.  timeout SB.  5-5

2 turnovers already by Andreassi leading to  2 Albany goals. I'm sure there are more turnovers to come by this kid.  There is no way he should be on the field!

UA really started to move the pace to their liking.  another thompson behind the back.  for some reason our defenseman put his stick downfield again.  with thompson actually standing in the crease.  6-5 UA

rodgers inside roll and scores inside.  seconds mids, stall violation, UA scores.  7-6 UA.  rooney feed to schultz, goal waved off.  thompson scores.  curry scores on break of faceoff, 8-7 UA.  UA fast break, score.  UA timeout.  halftime, 9-7 UA. 

great first quarter, not so great second quarter.
