Having watched Bing struggle for much of the season last year, after getting the crap beat out of it during its OOC schedule, my immediate reaction to this comment is that he's a bit naive.Stony Brook will play a big- time schedule that includes Connecticut, Villanova, Boston College and George Washington.
"It may not be a lot of wins for us," Popoko said, "but when you play teams like that, suddenly [America East foes] Boston University, Albany and Binghamton don't look so tough. We might get pounded, might not, but if you get the crap beat out of you, get tougher."
Ginzo,ginzo said:The info seems a bit dated, as stony brook has officially gotten the 7-2 player hinted at in the article. Also, I didn't know that JonPaul Kobyrn had more eligability? What happened with that guy? 3 years ago he led the AE in fieldgoal percentage, and was a major contributer. then he completally fell off the planet.
Did he have some medical problems too?Put In Rickard said:Ginzo,
Kobryn got a decent chance to perform from Macarchuk. He received some quality minutes and was erratic at best. He failed to build his upper-body, genuinely disliked to play down-low and inside with the big boys, and showed little mental and physical toughness on a consistent basis.
Concentrating on his studies would be best for both Kobryn and the Stony Brook Basketball Program in my opinion.
"Medical problems" is a bit strong.ginzo said:Did he have some medical problems too?
Can I ask a dumb question. Save for Cori Spencer, who did we lose? McCollum never showed up and...and the other seniors we lost were not starters. All starters save for Spencer and ocasionally McCollum are back. That includes Beauford, Hardy, and Pops.Will said:Stony Brook is going to have a very rough time this year (they lost a lot), but they definitley won't be the only team struggling.
Losing Spencer was HUGE! I don't think anyone in the history of stony brook basketball, and very few people in the AE in recent history have been able to get up and bring it up a notch for big games the way spencer did. He really was the reason Stony Brook beat BU in the 04' tourney (biggest upset in AE tourney history). And almost did the same last year versus northeastern. While he didnt lead the team in scoring, I think he had the biggest impact game in and game out of anyone on the team, and he certainly WAS the team in big games.TheBrook said:Can I ask a dumb question.

JMHO, but the UNH (#8) upset of #1 Siena in 1988 was a much bigger upset than SBU beating BU in '04. UNH won three games during the season by a total of 4-5 points and had been demolished by Siena twice during the season. Siena had won something like 23 or 24 games and was viewed as a clear favorite for the NCAA tournament. The 04 version of the AE was more competitive top to bottom than the 1998 version.ginzo said:He really was the reason Stony Brook beat BU in the 04' tourney (biggest upset in AE tourney history).
I didn't say best player ever for stony brook. I said when everything was on the line, he got up the most. Thats just my opinion from the past 4 AE tourneys, Munir didn't come close...Put In Rickard said:Losing Spencer was HUGE! I don't think anyone in the history of stony brook basketball......
D.J. Munir and Leon Brisport say hello.
