CCSU's first game of a 3-game road trip through America East. Next: @ Hartford (11/24), and @ UNH (12/5).

Will be interesting to see what the "new look" UMBC will throw at Central. Personally, I'm going to miss Monroe on the sidelines tonight - he was fun to watch. This is one of our better non-conf "rivals" so I’m glad to see this series still going. Would love to get Albany back onto our schedule and trade out UNH for UVM in the future.

CCSU is starting to look very good and could realistically be 4-0 right now. Very close losses in the first 2 games to MAAC foes. Impressive win over a quality LaSalle team in Philly on Sunday. Vinales is as good of a scorer as most teams will see this season. He's can take over any game and he’s a pleasure to watch. Should get some more pub and hype as the season progress. Was the Nation’s leading Frosh scorer last year. He’s averaging 23 a game right now.

Central is starting to get contributions from everyone especially up front and on the wings - so this is not a lumbering 3-headed monster like last year (Horton-Ptacek-Vinales). Much better chemistry and ball movement this year. However, CCSU is very thin at guards. Could be a problem when they are in foul trouble or later in NEC play.

Central is only 18-15 all-time vs. UMBC, but the Blue Devils have won 9 of the last 10 vs. the Retrievers. Howie is 14-5 vs. UMBC, so I expect CCSU to win tonight at the RAC without too much of a problem.

Well, Black is playing and UA is cruising 34 to 18. UMBC is even with CCSU. BU and Hartford are getting whacked.

Black looks spectacular so far this season.

Was on my way to Hartford to see the game and the traffic was so heavy I turned aroundand went home. Glad I did. It was annoying enough watching this streamed rather than traveling to the game. In the first half Hartford was really awful......couldn't buy a bucket.

Moore and Cooper who have played well so far showed their youth today. Moore missed soooo many bunny's today. Cooper while limiting turnovers in previous games must have had a half dozen tonight.

Nwakamma was solid....my guess is a double/double. Cole looked good. In a nice suprise frosh Taylor Dyson finally got his first minutes of the season and prbably had more points than minutes played (I think he had 10 points and I doubt he played 10 minutes).

Gladly onto the next game.

I know south Carolina state is not that good of a team, but to put a team away like that is impressive. I think Albany is as good as anyone else at the top of the AE to make it to the NCAA.

Chase Plummer gets called for a very very questionable blocking call at the timeline with 5 seconds left sending Kyle Vinalis to the line for 2, and UMBC loses 83-82.

Damn great game, though.

Fantastic effort by BU against Rutgers. Very close, could have won it but Malik Thomas got whistled for a flagrant foul late in the game.

Too bad about UMBC/CCSU. Thought they might have had that one.

As usual, playing in a BCS school's gym does us no favors. Down by 1 with under 10 secs left, and BU gets called for an intentional foul? Seriously? So much for momentum

Showed a lot of heart coming all the way back from about 20 points down early in the game - we were the better team for the final 30 minutes. DJ Irving was tremendous.

In the first half, Rutgers got credit for a 3-pt and the dude's foot was like most of the way over the line - they never fixed it and the announcers chalked it up to playing in a BCS school's gym. I'm really glad we lost by 2 points instead of 1.
