Congrats to the 2016-2017 LL Champion Union College Dutchmen!

You must be in 7th heaven dlip. A good friend of mine, Joe Cardany, went to Union in the late 70's-early 80's and graduated in 1981 as their all time leading scorer. His record stood for 20 years until a few guys broke his records when the 3 point shot came into play. If they had the 3 pointer when Joe was in college his record would still be unbroken.He was quite happy when I called to tell him that Union was dancing. 

I have ronk at 594 and FCGrizzlies at 721. Everything else matches up.

I had all the same player totals as you, for ronk and Grizzlies, except I added them up wrong. So we check out OK after yesterday.

And Schettino stinks it up with only 27.

Frankie had a triple double and only shot 3 for 11 from the field.  Dang turnovers and missed ff.😒

Also, thanks to you and the gang for a positive ruling on our behalf.  If I change my player, he'll probably drop 80+ fpts over the next two games.👍

Fanelly had 37 in the semifinal win and 44 today.

I was just going to post that same info regarding Fanelly. I saw his big game when I got the stats for the OWU players. I looked up his other game to see his totals. You just knew he'd do something like that.

Actually TheOsprey made out ok because he took Anderson from Husson who got 3 more points than Fanelly. He chose wisely!  :D

Fantastic 50 took Nathaniel Jack who already has 69 points with a game to go. So he did alright as well.

Brian Sortino  Oswego with 34 fpts as Oswego wins the SUNYAC Championship 75-70 over Oneonta.
Lawrence Coleman Oneonta 28 fpts
Mikey McElroy Oneonta with 25 fpts
Raheem Anderson Husson 44 fpts as Husson defeats Thomas 89-67 to win the NAC Championship.

Oswego State 53 Oneonta State 38 at the half

Brian Sortino is still in a zone as he puts up 20 first half points to lead all scorers. He scores 10 of those points in the last 3 minutes of the half as he nails back to back 3 pointers in the final 41 seconds to boost a 9 point lead to 15 in the blink of an eye. Sortino is 8x11 from the field and 4x5 from downtown.  I imagine he may do a heat check from just over the time line at some point in the 2nd half. Ian Schupp is also socking it to his old teammates as he has 15 points on 6x9 shooting including 3x4 from long range. Jamir Ferebee has 7 points as well.

The Red Dragons got 11 points from Lawrence Coleman and Frankie Kelly . Mikey McElroy has 10 points and Ian Schultz has 8 rebounds and 4 points.

The Red Dragons need a run to get this game back to a reasonable deficit. Hopefully the guys can respond and maybe the Lakers will come down to earth a bit, but I wouldn't count on that 2nd part happening.   

Oneonta State at Oswego State SUNYAC Championship  4:00 PM

The Lakers' Brian Sortino put on quite a show for his fans last night in Max Ziel GYm. Could he possibly have an encore presentation in him? I've long since became a believer in what he can do as I've watched him beat my Cardinals, in crucial situations, way too many times. Last night wasn't an aberration, it was the norm. If his team needs to score, he usually finds a way to get it done. The Lakers do have some other players who can also play the game and beating them at home will not be an easy thing to do. The oddsmakers have made them a 3 point favorite in this game.

Oneonta is playing excellent ball right now and I think the 4 guys in their final SUNYAC game would like to go out a winner and bring home the first ever Championship banner in Men's basketball. It would also be a nice feather in Coach Conover's cap to win a YAC title in his first year as a head coach. I'm just not sure the Red Dragons can get it done against the home team. But I have a number of reasons I want Oneonta to win this game and the primary one is so we can get 2 entries into the NCAA tournament. So I'm going with the Red Dragons to win, in another close game. Final score, Oneonta 81 Oswego 78.     

I'll double check my totals. I probably added wrong or missed one of Grizzlies scores. I'm on my way to my store and will look at it after I get there.

Here's an update after Friday's games. Hopefully the totals will match your counts.
Players eliminated include players that have already completed their championship game. Staten Island is currently the only one and no longer is listed In Championship game since it's over.

Oneonta advances to the Championship game with a convincing 85-72 win over Brockport. Solid game by the Red Dragons who led the entire 2nd half. They maintained a 2 possession lead for the first 11 minutes of the final period and then opened up a double digit lead with 8:33 to go. They were comfortably in front the rest of the way stretching their lead to as many as 15 points as Brockport had to foul.

The Golden Eagles biggest downfall was their inability to make many shots from behind the arc. They were a pitiful 5x30 (16.7%) from long range and you won't win many ballgames with that statistic in your box score. Oneonta only took 10 shots from 3 point range and made 3 of them. Overall Brockport shot 27x79 from the field (34.2%) whil the Red Dragons shot 26x49 (53.1%). That's the story of the game in a nutshell. The Red Dragons also killed Brockport from the line as they went 30x42 (71.4%) to just 13x19 (68.4%) for the Eagles. The referees called a tight game which didn't favor Brockport and their swarming defense. 31 fouls were called on the Eagles to 16 called on Oneonta. Brockport did have a bunch of fouls in the final few minutes to try and get back into the game but they were clearly frustrated by the officials tight calls.

The Red Dragons
Lawrence Coleman captured scoring honors and rebounding honors as he's done a number of  times this year. He had 24 points (8x12 fg, 1x2 3's, 7x11 ft) and completed his double-double with 14 rebounds. He added 3 steals and a block.

Frankie Kelly had 21 points (6x8 fg, 1x2 3's, 8x9 ft), 6 rebounds, 3 assists and a steal.

Mikey McElroy had 14 points 6 rebounds and 3 assists.

Jack Kolosky had 8 rebounds,7 points, a steal, an asssist and a block.

Dwayne Freeman had 9 points, 2 boards and a steal.

Ian Schultz had 6 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist in 16 minutes off the bench.

Harrison Deegan had 4 points, 4 rebounds, 2 blocks and a steal in 13 minutes off the bench.

The Golden Eagles
Devonn Gavin lead the team with 20 points (8x18 fg, 2x9 3's, 2x4 ft), 3 rebounds and 2 steals.

Matthew Smith had 12 points (5x11 fg, 1x3 3's, 1x1 ft), 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Marcus Blythers had 11 points and a team high 10 rebounds to get a double-double. He also had 2 steals, an assists and a block.

Hamed Shamseldin had 11 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Clifton Lyerly had 8 points and 3 rebounds.

Oneonta will face Oswego at 4:00 PM on Saturday afternoon for the SUNYAC Championship and the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. The Red Dragons improve their overall record to 17-10. They need to beat Oswego and win the automatic qualifier to get into the NCAA tournament, because they won't get an at large bid if they lose. They need to play like there is no tomorrow because if they lose, there isn't.

Brockport drops to 19-7 overall and will now see if their season will continue with an at  large bid from the NCAA committee. I'd like to see them get one but I think that a 19-7 record (20-7 would have been so much better) and not making the championship game will be tough to overcome. I sure hope I'm wrong about that.   
It's going to come down to how many top seeds lose in the next few days and how many at large bids the committee hands out to the Northeast region and the Central region. Those regions are going to get a bunch of bids even if all the top seeds win.

My players are now a combined 22-0 so far. ??? I know I'll get some losses tomorrow because teams play each other in conference championships but they've done their job by playing the maximum games.

I think you're the winner. Unless all your players do nothing tomorrow and Sunday. Even then you may still win because so many of them are on our teams as well.

Edit: Your Morrisville player could lose in the semis tomorrow, and you'd be 1 shy of getting the maximum number of games. ;)

Oswego State breaks the Bengals' heart a 3rd time even worse than the first two as they win again by a single point in overtime 84-83. The Bengals had the last shot with 8 seconds left and opted for a 3 point attempt instead of a drive to the hoop. It was off the mark and the Lakers got the rebound as time expired. Not sure I would have wanted that to be my final shot. My choice was go to Lovell Smith inside on a drive and hope he gets fouled if the shot doesn't go in.

Great game to watch and a shame someone had to lose.

40 minutes can't decide this one so they go to overtime as Oswego and Buffalo State are tied at 76. Brian Sortino with the ball and 29 seconds left, so he holds it for the last shot, which surprised exactly no one in the gym. He drove to the basket and laid it up but good defense by the Bengals forced him to try and bank it in high off the glass and it wouldn't go down. Ball went out of bounds off the Bengals with one tenth of a second on the clock. On the in bounds play nothing happened ad this will be settled in an extra session...maybe.

Oswego leads Buffalo State 35-32 at the half.

9 lead changes and 4 ties in a tightly contested first half. I expect more of the same coming right up.

Brian Sortino (who else) leads Oswego with 14 points. Ian Schupp and Jamir Ferebee with 9 each.

Lovell Smith with 13 points to lead the Bengals.  Jordan Glover has 8 and Dom Grayer has 7.
