The remaining teams in the East Region aren't listed because their ranking is too low to make a difference.

The latest D3hoops Top 25 Poll was released Monday evening.

Rochester (8-0)  is still the only East Region school in the Top 25. The Yellowjackets  jumped from #18 with 168 points to #11 with 358 points for a gain of 190 points.

Skidmore (5-1)is getting 34 points in the Others Receiving Votes category which would make them #29 if we counted those teams. They increased their total by 10 points over last week.

Brockport (6-0) moves unto the ORV category with 11 points at #40, on the strength of their unbeaten record. They weren't mentioned last week.

Plattsburgh State (5-1) has a 2-1 week and drops from 10 points down to 3 points and a tie for the #45 spot.

Plattsburgh and Skidmore will meet tonight, for the 3rd time in the past 3 years and the game will be in Plattsburgh for the first time. The teams split the first two games so tonight will be the rubber match. Then the Cardinals will face Brockport on Saturday afternoon, for a possible early season battle for the SUNYAC lead.

Skidmore will then travel to Middlebury on Saturday to take on the Panthers. Last year the Thoroughbreds beat Middlebury for the first time in 11 years. The Panthers won't want them to start a winning streak. 

Brockport tackles Hobart tonight, on the road, which should prove to be an interesting matchup.

Rochester puts their unbeaten streak on the line as they host a tough Geneseo team led by John Decker and Justin Ringen. With a little luck this could have been a battle of unbeatens as Geneseo lost 2 close games and is 4-2 on the year. Geneseo will then face Plattsburgh on Friday in the Burgh. 

With these games on tap this week among the East Region teams there is sure to be some changes in next week's poll.

hopefan,
Per your request for corrections...Williams has a loss to a DIII team (as you should know because you correctly picked that DIII team, Wesleyan,  to beat them in the National Pick Em League this past Saturday. ;D) The Ephs were on the short end of a 72-62 final score.  http://ephsports.williams.edu/sports/mbkb/2016-17/releases/20161203w9mcko

Incidentally Williams has only that 1 loss. They do not have a loss to a non-DIII team.

I thought your date generated macro download???....picked up the Williams' Women's record which is identical to the Men's team at 6-1, but the women also lost to a DIII school, Montclair State.

Northeast Region / Re: MBB: NESCAC
« on: Yesterday at 08:02:44 am »
Full slate of games for CAC schools today.  Very interesting match up between Tufts and Babson in the Tourny at Brandeis today.  Watched parts of yesterday's Tufts and Babson's games when the scores showed competitive games against Southern Maine and Brandeis.   Turns out that Babson was playing with a lineup without their big gun..the all-American.  In the Tufts vs. Brandeis game there was a new mix of players for Tufts throughout the game which ended in a 74-72 win for Tufts.  Rarely did Pace play with his SR center star in the game.  Thought it was to save the big man for today's game.  Turns out that Brandeis took Tuft's big man out with good defense,IMO. Pace was shooting the lights out from outside and getting points inside whenever the Judges made a run.  It took the Jumbo's PG Smith making 4 foul shots to win.  May have to watch the game today.

The Babson-Tufts game is a good one.  Too bad Brandeis doesn't supply a video.  I guess if they can't play in the game themselves they take their ball and go home.

I was really disappointed when I finished watching the Plattsburgh State game that was a 2 PM start and switched over to the 4PM start of the Babson-Tufts game. I saw the video link but when I clicked on it, it stated something like ...the boxcast is not available for this game. I kept thinking I was doing something wrong because they just had to have a videocast of this game, what with it being a tournament and the great matchup. :o But after trying numerous ways to find a link I came to the same conclusion that you did: We're not in it... so it doesn't matter. >:( I will forever root against Brandeis from this moment on, even when they play one of those midwest schools from the CCIW. ;D

Thought I might see the big matchup for first place in the SUNYAC conference on Saturday between undefeated Brockport and 5-1 Plattsburgh. I think it will be a better game than Oswego-Buffalo State.

So I went to Swarthmore today.  As I said, I'm almost always bad luck for the home team.  The score went back and forth a little in the first half, but Dickinson got a small lead and held it most of the game.  Swarthmore is definitely the better team, but Dickinson was playing a lot better today (although their coach said he thought they played terrible after the game, as coaches are prone to do).

Anyway, Swarthmore wears the lead down in the final few minutes, but Dickinson got some fortunate bounces and finds themselves up 4 with 8 seconds to play.  Swarthmore brings the ball up the floor - I'm unsure of exactly what happened since it was on the other side of the court from me - I think a Dickinson player tried to steal the ball and committed a foul, but the Swarthmore player got a shot attempt off and refs awarded three FTs with 3.7 seconds left on the clock.

He hit the first and missed the second.  The intentional miss looked like it was going to deaden on the back of the rim and flop off in the wrong direction, but they got a lucky bounce and a tap and a corner three with three defenders jumping at the shooter.  Tie game.

Swarthmore played excellent in the extra time and won the game.  I'm still alive.

Pretty fun afternoon.

Quite a miraculous comeback for your team. I saw the play by play and how they hit the 3 pointer with their final shot in regulation to send it to overtime.

You should buy a lottery ticket this week.  ;D

For the most miraculous comeback in all of DIII this season, so far, take a look at the final 1:55 in regulation of the Brockport State-Old Westbury game from Nov.23rd. Brockport was down by 13 points with 1:55 left and somehow tied the game and won it in overtime. Most amazing is they had to score twice in the final 5 seconds to tie the game. Here's a link to the play by play:   http://www.d3hoops.com/seasons/men/2016-17/boxscores/20161123_3m4e.xml?view=plays

The Brockport coach told me how poorly they played for most of the game but had the ability to turn it on when they needed to. It was quite a comeback.

Oswego State 61 Cortland State 57

I expected a better effort from both of these teams as the final score was indicative of two teams with offensive liabilities. Yet, coming into this contest, Cortland was averaging nearly 90 ppg. The Lakers have stuggled at times, but were still putting up over 75 ppg. Neither team lived up to those numbers.

Cortland shot 30 % from the field and Oswego wasn't much better at 33.3%. They both were right around 35% from long distance. Cortland was a bit better from the line, 72.2% to 66.7% but the Lakers had 27 foul shots to 18 for the Red Dragons. Oswego made 18 and Cortland sank 13 and there's the point difference in the ballgame.

The Lakers broke on top to grab early leads of 8-2 and 14-7 before the Red Dragon caught them with a Nicky Bonura 3 pointer to tie the game at 20 apiece. It was the only time the game was knotted up and it was as close to a lead as Cortland would get. 15 seconds later Oswego's Brian Sortino drained a 3 pointer to put the Lakers in front for good and a pair of 3's by Sortino and Louis Avellino gave Oswego a 31-23 lead heading into the locker room.

Laker big man, Mykelle Krecko, scored his only points of the game to open the 2nd half and Sortino followed with a layup to bump the lead to 12 points. Five straight missed shots followed and when the Lakers Kieth Tyson hit a pair of free throws, Oswego had their largest lead of the night at 37-23. An 11-2 run by the Red Dragons cut the lead to 39-34 with 14:38 left to play. Over the next 14 minutes and 23 seconds the lead was never greater than 8 points or less than 3. Down by 6 points with 48 seconds left, Cortland cut the lead to 4 after Justin Cooper sank a pair of free throws with 31 seconds on the clock. Cortland called a timeout, the Lakers promptly turned the ball over and Cooper scored on a layup with 15 ticks left to make it 59-57. The Red Dragons immediately foul Ian Schupp who makes the first and misses the 2nd giving Cortland a chance to tie the game with a 3 pointer. James Morales committed the foul that sent Schupp to the line. Morales is the one that corralled the rebound off Schuppp's missed free throw. Morales also takes the game tying shot as the clock winds down, just as he did last year, when he nailed a 3 pointer at the buzzer to beat the Lakers in the SUNYAC championship. Strange how fate has a way of setting things up. Alas, there is no joy in Cortland as this time, Morales' shot is off the mark. The Red Dragons get the offensive board but turn it over before they can get another shot off. Sortino is fouled with 3 seconds left and makes 1 of 2 from the line to secure the victory.

Brian Sortino captures scoring honors with a game high of 20 points. He adds 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Keith Tyson has 16 points and comes up just shy of a double-double with 9 rebounds. He adds 2 assists, 2 blocks and a steal.

Jamir Ferebee comes off the bench and scores 10 points, has 4 boards and 1 assist in 23 minutes.

Mykelle Krecko only has 2 points but was the leading rebounder in the game with 13 boards and swatted away 6 shots.

Louis Avellino had 6 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in 25 minutes off the bench.


Cortland was led by 18 points from Justin Cooper. He had 3 rebounds, 3 assists and a steal.

Nicky Bonura had 13 points and a pair of assists off the bench.

James Morales had 11 points, 2 steals , 1 rebound, 1 assist, and 1 block.
 
Mike Kelly had 5 points, a team high 8 rebounds, 2 steals, and 1 assist.

Andre Hampton  scored 5 points, grabbed 4 boards and had 1 block.

Oswego had the edge in rebounds because of Krecko's big night off the glass, but Cortland took better care of the ball committing only 8 turnovers to 16 for the Lakers.

Oswego improves to 5-2 (1-0 SUNYAC) and will travel to Oneonta on Tuesday to face more Red Dragons in a 5:30 start. They complete their first half schedule with 2 more conference games against Fredonia and Buffalo State.

Cortland falls to 3-2 overall (0-1) and travels to New Paltz on Tuesday for a 5:30 PM game. They will host the same two teams as the Lakers this weekend and then wrap up their 1st semester with a game at St. John Fisher on December 17th at 4:00 PM.

Buffalo State 91  Potsdam State 67

Potsdam tried to make a game of this despite the gap in talent between the two teams. The Bears didn't know they were 17 point dogs against the Bengals, so they came out of the gate, grabbed the early lead and gradually increased it until they were in front by a 27-18 score with 6:41 left in the half. Jayquan Thomas had the hot hand for Potsdam as he scored 13 first half points to lead the Bears. The Bengals were still trailing 33-28 when they scored 11 straight points to grab the lead at 39-33 with 1:48 left in the period. The teams traded free throws and baskets, as the Bengals went into the break up by a 43-38 score.

Buff State wasted little time after intermission to set things right. Lovell Smith scored a layup on their initial possession and Jordan Glover got a steal and followed suit 12 seconds later. Potsdam missed their first shot of the 2nd half and Glover buried a 3 pointer and in 43 seconds the lead had gone from 5 points to 12 at 50-38 and the Bears were calling time out. For the next 6 minutes the lead fluctuated between 10 to 12 points, but the Bears could never get it back to single digits. Up 60 to 50 with 14 minutes left to play, the Bengals blew the game wide open with a 13-0 run over 4 minutes that put them up 73-50 with 10 minutes remaining. The lead grew to 26 as the Bengals got all 15 players into the game and 13 of them hit the scoring column.

Nico McLean was the Bengal's high scorer with 22 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists.

J O Spence had 12 points and a team high 6 rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench.

Mike Henry had 11 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals.

Lovell Smith had 9 points, 3 rebounds, 4 steals and 1 assist.

Freshman Zach Ciezki had 8 points, 3 assists and 3 steals in 15 minutes of court time.


Dante Langley led the Bears and captured scoring honors with 23 points, shooting 9x14 from the field. He added 3 rebounds, 3 steals and a block.

Jayquan Thomas had 13 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist in 22 minutes off the bench.

Danny Delsol-Lowry had 10 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal.

Kristoff Saunders scored 2 points with the only shot he took, but was the leading rebounder in the game with 9 boards in 20 minutes of court time off the bench.

Nosa Onabor added 8 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist and a steal in 11 minutes.

The Bears actually had better shooting stats from long distance and from the line than the Bengals and had a 43-38 edge on rebounds. The Bengals constant pressure was the key factor in the game as they harassed and hurried Potsdam into a season high 35 turnovers. That was more than twice as many as they had in any game this season. The Bengals converted those turnovers into 37 points which accounted for their 24 point margin of victory.

Buffalo State ups their record to 5-1 overall (1-1 SUNYAC) and will be off until next weekend when they travel to Central NY for games against Cortland on Friday and Oswego on Saturday.

The Bears fall to 1-4 overall and 0-2 in the YAC. Potsdam will next play crosstown rival Clarkson, as the Golden Knights invade Jerry Welsh Gym in Maxcy Hall, on Tuesday Dec. 6th at 7:30 PM.

Brockport 98  New Paltz 46

The Golden Eagles wasted little time taking control of this game. They scored the first 12 points of the game and when the Hawks cut the lead to 13-6 that was the closest they got all night long. I expected the Eagles to win by a large margin but I didn't expect them to double up the Hawks score.

Brockport's Coach Dunne had his starters on the bench for most of the 2nd half. The last 6 players in his rotation had 77 of the 200 minutes on the floor and they were still outscoring the Hawks.

Five players scored in double figures for Brockport led by Marcus Blythers with a game high 15 points. He just missed a double-double as he also had a game high of 9 rebounds. He also had 3 blocks and 1 assist. He was the only Brockport player with more than 17 minutes of playing time as he logged a team high 22 minutes.

Jacob Peterson scored 14 points and grabbed 3 boards in 14 minutes.

Hamed Shamseldin had 11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

Devonn Gavin scored 10 points with 2 boards, 2 assists and a steal in 10 minutes on the floor.

Malik Sylla had 10 points and 3 rebounds.

Jake Mitchell filled up the stat sheet with 7 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 assists, and a block in 17 minutes off the bench.

Cordell Torres had 9 points.7 rebounds and 2 steals.

The Hawks were led by 11 points from James Saunders who also had 2 boards and 2 steals..

Corey Garcia had 8 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and a steal.

Brockport shot the ball much better than New Paltz, who struggled with accuracy in all three areas. The Golden Eagles man to man, pressure defense, created 31 turnovers that resulted in 32 points. They won the rebounding battle as well by a 54 to 38 margin.

Brockport remains unbeaten with a 6-0 overall record and tied with Plattsburgh State for first place in the SUNYAC standings with a 2-0 record. The Golden Eagles will be back in action on Tuesday, December 6th when they travel to Hobart to take on the Statesmen at 8:00 PM. They will then head to Northern New York for games at Potsdam and Plattsburgh this coming weekend. Should the Cardinals and Eagles both win their Friday night games they will square off on Saturday afternoon, for an early first place showdown in the SUNYAC.

New Paltz will look to regroup after dropping both conference games over the weekend, as they fall to 1-6 overall and 0-2 in the YAC. Next up they host Cortland on Tuesday to take on those Red Dragons at 5:30 PM, followed by a visit from the Oneonta variety of Red Dragons on Saturday December 10th. Sure to be a warm week in New Paltz with all those fire breathers coming to town. Get out the marshmallows. :D

Oneonta 89  Geneso 88

The Red Dragons only led in this game one time...but it was the one time that mattered...when the final buzzer sounded. 

Geneseo opened the game on an 8-0 run and the Knights went up 14-4 less than 3 minutes into the game on the strength of four 3 pointers. Justin Ringen had 3 of them and John Decker had the other one. Oneonta used a flurry of threeballs to cut into that deficit as Dwayne Freeman, Mikey McElroy, and Jack Kolosky all hit from downtown. The Knights were on top 19-15 after 5 minutes of play. Kevin Crockett got into the act for Geneseo as he nailed a 3 pointer, got fouled on a 3 point attempt and swished 3 from the stripe,and then made another shot from long range. Once more the Knights had a sizable lead at 30-18 and increased their margin to as many as 16 points before settling for an 11 point 48-37 halftime edge.

Oneonta tried to cut into the double digit lead but every time they got it under 10 points, the Knights would respond, usually with a 3 pointer or back to back buckets and the Red Dragons' rally would be short lived. McElroy scored to cut the lead to 7 points at 81-74 but seconds later Crockett scored and was fouled and with 5 minutes left to play the Knights were still in front by 10 points. Still down by 9 with 3:31 left, Freeman scored from downtown and Coleman scored from uptown. The gap was 4 points and the Red Dragons had made it a 2 possession game for the first time since it was 19-15, five minutes into the game.

The Knights called a timeout hoping to regroup but they failed to score on their possession. Oneonta got a layup from Kolosky but Decker was fouled at the other end and made them both to make it 88-84. McElroy got fouled, made 1 of 2 and when the Knights grabbed the rebound with 1:39 to play it didn't look good for the Red Dragons. The Knights came up empty on their possession with 1:16 to play and Oneonta's Frankie Kelly drove to the hoop and scored to make it 88-87 with 1:09 to go. The Knights took another time out and rather than run time off the clock, went for an early score. Decker missed a layup attempt, but got the rebound and Geneseo called another timeout with 45 ticks on the clock. The Knights, looking to inbound the ball when play resumed, were forced to take another time out to avoid a 5 second call. Geneseo wound the clock down but found themselves facing a shot clock violation and the resulting 3 point attempt by Decker was not a good shot and was off the mark. Mikey McElroy secured the biggest rebound of the night and the Red Dragons called a time out with 12 seconds to play.

I've seen this act before, and knew what was coming, as Frankie Kelly inbounded the ball after the time out. He got the return pass, dribbled upcourt and made his move to the hoop. He laid it up and the ball dropped through the net, just like it was supposed to do. There were 3 seconds left to play and Oneonta finally had their lead. The Knights rushed the ball up and let one fly just over the halfcourt line but it was off target and the Oneonta bench began the celebration.

After the game Oneonta's  head coach, Cameron Conover, had this to say. "Wow! That was fun. It's about playing defense and getting stops.  Our guys started playing great defense at the end of the first half. We held them without a field goal for the last 5:38 of the first half. I just told the guys at halftime that if they give that same effort for the next 20 minutes, I'll be proud of them regardless of what the scoreboard says. I also told them that if they give that effort for the whole second half, then we were going to win the game."

I'm not sure if the Coach had them winning in such dramatic fashion but he sure was right about the effort and about the team winning, if the effort was there. The rest of the SUNYAC was served notice on Saturday that the Red Dragons and their coach won't stop playing until the game is over.

You jinxed Siebring as well. You called him a beast and said he forced Sorenson to the bench. He was done right after you made that statement. He had 10 points when you said that...he finished with 16.  ::)

You jinxed them when you switched your pick. I hadn't made a choice yet in that game, but when I saw your announcement that you were switching to IWU, I was all over North Central. :D
