Potsdam State has hired a new coach and only had to go 10 miles down the road to find him. Jim Bechtel who has been the coach at SUNY-Canton for the past few years will take over the Bears

This seems like a good hire for the Bears. Canton has improved steadily under his guidance. Seems like a good recruiter and has a solid 10 year resume.
Hope the Bears find their way back to respectability. Here's a link to the news release:

The Lady Bears also got a new coach as Brittany Cohen, former 2 time SUNYAC Player of the Year at Cortland State just a few years ago, will take over the reins of the women's basketball program. Cohen's grandfather was longtime Bear's assistant coach Stan Cohen, who passed away last year. Her dad is Hal Cohen who was a starter for Syracuse University's basketball team back in the late 70's. Britanny's most recent job was working for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. Here's the news release on her hire:

It was nice to see 3 SUNYAC teams in the final D3hoops poll.

Oswego at #21, Cortland State at #28 and Plattsburgh State at #29. With a little luck we could have had 3 teams in the Top 25.

Next year will find another extremely competitive conference race. I think Cortland and Plattsburgh have the nucleus for another decent season. Oswego lost a lot of talent but with Brian Sortino and Mykelle Krecko back they have possibilities. Geneseo only lost 2 players and with Justin Ringen and John Decker returning, they will be in the playoffs.   Brockport should be solid again as well, with 5 of their top 6 scorers back. Fredonia will look to move up the ladder as they should continue to improve.

Everybody could be chasing Buffalo State though as I think they return more talent than anybody. How all that talent comes together on the court will be the question mark, but right now they are the frontrunners, I believe.  Of course after seeing my Cardinals when they come back in the fall I might change my mind.  ;D  I do know we'll have one or two surprises to unveil. 8-)

Practice starts in 170 days.

God must have something really special planned for Buffalo State next season!

Another young member of the BENGALS family has passed away!  Hezekiah Johnson, became a honorary member of the BENGALS this past season. I was his ride to and from our home games, so we often had chances to talk away from the court. He even traveled with the team for road games at Brockport, Fredonia and Geneseo. We even went to play Lazertron and went to see "Star Wars" Christmas night. He had an infectious happy spirit which everyone on the team enjoyed. For all the stuff he was going through, he never complained!

He passed away, at the age of 18 years old last week. Funeral is tomorrow!

May "Hezzie" rest in peace!

BENGAL family...... forever!


Sorry to hear that news Champ. I remember when that news article making him an honorary Bengal was released back in December. Sad that he couldn't get the kidney that would have given him a new lease on life.

With the 69th pick in the Early Bird NCAA Fantasy League my final selection is far from being irrelevant as he was the Rookie of the Year in the SUNYAC conference and his injury in the semifinals of the conference tournament was the reason Plattsburgh lost to Oswego. With him, I think Plattsburgh would have made a serious run in the NCAA tournament. We would have held the sectional instead of Tufts had we made the Sweet 16 and we were a better team than Cortland who lost to Amherst in the final 5 seconds of the game. Without him I knew we were in trouble.

I just have to hope Plattsburgh can make it to the Dance next year.

Jon Patron has a good chance of becoming the all time leading scorer in Plattsburgh State history. 369 points his freshman year and he came off the bench. Next year I believe he'll average a double-double. This year he had 14.3 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game.

Someone likes Salisbury.  ???  ;D  :)

Who's Wyatt Smith?

Wyatt Smith I'm guessing was injured this year an will be back for his senior season next year. In the 2014-15 season he averaged 14.7 ppg and grabbed 7.9 rebounds per game. ronk did his homework but then it's in his region.

Speaking of injuries, who's Williams' point guard you were yapping about?

Mike Greenman. Went down after only 4 games this year.

My pick is coming right up.

No, I was just switching positions with you so I don't hold you up. They can draft after my pick which will come later tonight.

Greek go ahead and make your pick just switch positions with me.  I'm not worried you'll take someone I want.

When can we shed players and pick up free agents? Right away or do we have to wait to do that?

If I thought Oswego had a snowball's chance in hell of making the tournament next year Sortino would have been on my team...as he was on my team this year. I know the SUNYAC better than the average bear and I just don't see Oswego winning the conference or having a Pool C resume. I tried real hard to put Sortino on my team way back in the 2nd round because as an individual player he's one of the best in the country, but I just couldn't do it because I couldn't figure out how they would make the dance.  The team lost too much with Covley, and Rawa graduating. Those 2 guys were a huge part of Oswego's success. Mark Candelario,their 6'8" center is gone also. Sampson was injured halfway through the year and is also gone. Oswego had a very short bench last year, so it's not like they had a lot of underclassmen ready to move up. My suggestion to 7express is to drop him and add a free agent that will actually make the dance.   

Don't buy any snake oil from that magicman guy!  ;D  :D  :)  :P

He's the same guy that told me I shouldn't draft his boy Richardson from his team Plattsburgh St in last year's draft because there were 3 or 4 better teams in the SUNYAC. Well, guess who won the conference? They also got to host the 1st weekend of the NCAA tourney. Granted, they lost in the 1st round, but they were primed to get 3 games in. LOL  ::)  :o  :)

Please note that when you did drop Kyle Richardson, I didn't rush to add him to my team. ;) Plattsburgh State really came together as a team last year and their march to the regular season conference championship was quite a surprise.

As I mentioned above I could have had Sortino many rounds ago but chose to pass. I would never give the Greek or 7express false information on purpose. Other guys maybe, but not those two. ;D
