Results of the Semi-Finals at Plattsburgh State Friday night.

Oneonta State 82  Brockport State 77

Plattsburgh State 89 Oswego State 76

Oneonta  at Plattsburgh for the SUNYAC Title at 4:00 PM Saturday.

And then there were four.

Semifinals today at Plattsburgh State. First game tips off at 5:30 PM followed by the next game at 7:30 PM

Oneonta State  vs  Brockport State   5:30

The Golden Eagles were supposed to be here in the Final Four. Oneonta is the party crasher. These Red Dragons took down the favored Red Dragons from Cortland in easy feat...and they did it by leading almost from start to finish. Trailing by a 6-5 score early in the game, Oneonta scored 7 unanswered points and never trailed after that. They led for a good portion of the game by a margin of 7 to 13 points and only in the final 7 minutes did Cortland pull within a single possession and make the outcome of the game in doubt. Oneonta hung tough and completed the upset due to their ability to control the boards against Cortland. They had a decided 44-25 edge off the glass and had 15 offensive rebounds to only 6 for Cortland. Harrison Deegan and Joseph Bull came off the bench to provide a big lift as they combined for 29 points...15 for Deegan and 14 for Bull. Ian Schultz (15) and Sean Nolan (12) both set career highs for the number of rebounds they grabbed.

Oneonta will need to get another helping  of those performances today if they hope to spring upset # 2 on Brockport. The Golden Eagles are coming into this game on a 4 game winning streak, which includes an 89-72 win over these Red Dragons 2 weeks ago. Oneonta did manage to beat Brockport back in December by an 87-83 score, so this is the rubber match to see who will move into the Championshiop game. The oddsmakers have made the Golden Eagles an 8 point favorite in this game and they will depend heavily on their two all conference performers, Hamed Shamseldin and Justin Summers. If Oneonta can somehow slow this pair down they may keep the game close and be there at the end. However, I think the experience of Brockport will be the deciding factor and look for the Golden Eagles to come away with an 85-76 win.

Oswego State  at  Plattsburgh State  7:30 PM 

This will be the 3rd time in the last 4 years that the Cardinals and Lakers have squared off in the SUNYAC tournament. The Lakers won both of the previous meetings. Plattsburgh owns a pair of playoff wins against Oswego in 2007 and 2008 so this one will give the winner a leg up.

Oswego comes into the game with back to back wins over the #4 seed, Geneseo and has won 5 of their last 6 games. They struggled against the top 3 teams in the YAC going 0-6 but were right there in many of those games. They did manage to put 95 points on the board Tuesday against the Knights in Geneseo so they are a dangerous team and with nothing to lose will come at Plattsburgh with everything they have. Coach Leone will have his troops prepared and will try and take as much time off the clock as they can to limit the touches of an athletic Plattsburgh team. All five starters were in double figures on Tuesday night led by Jamir Ferebee's 21 points and 20 points from Ian Schupp. Tyler Pierre added a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Plattsburgh State is on a roll that stretches back to December 9th when they started their 17 game winning streak. Go to guy, Jon Patron, has yet to lose this year after joining the team on December 30th. His all conference teammate, Eli Bryant, is one of the top scorers in the YAC and does so coming off the bench and getting less minutes than many other players in the league Add in Eric Mack, who leads the conference in blocked shots, to provide excellent interior defense and you have a recipe for success. Plattsburgh plays a rotation that goes 9 deep and has multiple guys that can lead the team in scoring.           

The oddsmakers have made the Cardinals a 12 point favorite in this one. I think they win by a final score of 80-66.

No surprise that Hobart is still ranked #1 in the region. The conference tournaments could certainly change the final rankings next week if Hobart should lose and Plattsburgh wins. If both teams win the automatic conference  bids it's entirely possible the East Region won't get an at large bid. Brockport would be a possibility with a win and a loss in the SUNYAC tournament to finish 20-7. I don't think anyone else has a chance.

If either Hobart or Plattsburgh or both get upset in their conference tournaments it's possible the East could get 3 or 4 teams in the NCAA's as either of those teams could get an at large bid, to go along with the automatic bid winners.

Hobart does keep the top spot in the Regional Rankings over Plattsburgh State. Biggest change was Brockport moving ahead of Cortland into the 3rd spot,  but that was to be expected after the Brockport win over Cortland last Saturday.

Good job with the League, Greek, and congrats on your first place finish.

Thanks dude. I was hoping you'd get into some of the conference tourney leagues...too busy being retired? LOL

It's tax time and because I retired and closed my store I have a lot more tax things to take care of this year than I normally do. I'll probably do a few of the NCAA leagues coming up because I hope to be done with taxes by the end of this week.

Upsets in the making as Oswego leads Geneseo 83-71 with under two minutes to play.

Oneonta led Cortland the entire first half and is up by 10 points, 33-23, at the break.

I think Cortland defeats Oneonta by an 83-70 final score

Taking Geneseo to reverse last Saturdays decision and beat Oswego by a 75-71 final score.

Wow, a close loss to the #2 in the LL ,Union, and Hobart drops out of the top 25 rankings as well as a bunch of other 20-25 ranked teams who suffered losses. Plattsburgh St. will take over the #1 ranking in the region as they take Hobart's place in the Top 25. I thought Hobart didn't have to win the LL Tourney to get in, but now I am worried. Gotta play well this weekend.

Bartman - that statement is incorrect. The Top 25 has nothing to do with the rankings. Hobart could very well stay ahead of Plattsburgh (not looking at data to make a claim). The regional rankings and Top 25 don't always agree. You can look around every week and find examples.

Hobart will probably stay ahead of Plattsburgh in the regional rankings next week even with the loss to Union. Hobart has the same number of losses as Plattsburgh and 1 more win. They also have a slightly better Strength of Schedule. I'll be surprised if Plattsburgh moves into the top spot.
