He's my kind of player. The more players like Brenton and Voelkel - tough, smart, the first guy to dive into the fray, physical, and above all tremendously hard working - the league get's, the better it will be.

I'm not saying Rowley will be Brenton or Voelkel - he'd be one HELL of a player if he comes anywhere within sniffing distance - but he's that type of player. The Levi Levine/Jason Grochowalski type... Real excited about Rowley.

Congrats on the win Stony Brook!

All 3 America East wins were by 1 basket or less today. Wow! Our conference has a lot of heart!

Re: America East Gameday: 11/9

Just got home. A win is a win, but... The more things change the more they stay the same. Brenton was fantastic - double double and a bunch of assists and a couple steals. The defense was good. Marist returned all five starters from a team that averaged 73 ppg last year. Coach Pikiell played 11 guys - and 11 guys in the first half. Seemed like we found the right combination in the second half - up 13 with the ball and then mass subs, no starters on the floor at all, and woomp it's a dog fight to the end.This team struggles always to find ways to score. I wish we could keep the defense we have and find a way to get some easy baskets occasionally. By the way, whenever Brenton tries to make something happen, it does. He gets in the lane and either gets off a great shot, gets fouled, or dishes to an open teammate for a layup. Warney and Puriefoy looked like they were playing their first college games. They are both going to be loads better the second time out. They both also had some real nice moments with the typical "I can't believe he made such a bone headed play." moment. The good news is that with so many young players, this team only has upwards to go. Couple days rest then on to 6am at Rider.

Talking about UA's Rowley

Quote:
....Wyland on the radio feed compared him to Brenton. Long way to go until you can make that comparison but he played a really nice game today. His assist to Puk on the dunk at the end of the game was awesome. - DanesRGood

I'm glad we are keeping it in perspective Rowley is a strong guy with a solid Basketball IQ who is not afraid to work hard.

It's nice he is said to be similar in style to Brenton and Voekel but he is not Brenton or Voekel

------------------------------------------------

One game is a very small sample but the John Puk who played last night was not the same John Puk who played 2 previous seasons at UA and I will leave it at that.

Exactly. One game, it was fun to see and speculate about what could be but it was still one game.
