I'm pretty happy with my slate, as I seem to have wreaked a lot of havoc with people's picking percentages. Unfortunately, I was my own victim in the process. :(

As always, please check my math:

Greek Tragedy  6-4
Smitty Oom  6-4
The Osprey  6-4
Ryan Scott  5-5
Ronk  5-5
NCF  5-5
Mr. Ypsi  5-5
magicman  4-6
smedindy  3-7
augie77  3-7
frodotwo  3-7
GS  2-8
FCGriz  2-8
Captain Joe  2-8
7ex  1-9

Standings heading into week 6:

Ronk  30-20
FCGriz  29-21
Smitty Oom  29-21
Mr. Ypsi  29-21
The Osprey  29-21
Ryan Scott  28-22
magicman  28-22
smedindy  27-23
frodotwo  27-23
augie77  27-23
GS  25-25
NCF  25-25
7ex  23-27
Greek Tragedy  21-29
Captain Joe  18-32

Greg,

In double checking the scores the only error I spotted was the one ronk mentioned in a previous post. He was 4-6 instead of 5-5. making his overall total 29-21.

And you SHOULD be happy with your slate Greg(other than those self inflicted wounds) as your slate's weekly won-loss record was a season's best so far of 57-93. That's a win percentage of just 38%, which blows away my week of 75-75. I'll be surprised if anyone can make up a slate that will top this one. Outstanding job.

Standings after week #5:

Ronk  29-21
FCGriz  29-21
Smitty Oom  29-21
Mr. Ypsi  29-21
The Osprey  29-21
Ryan Scott  28-22
magicman  28-22
smedindy  27-23
frodotwo  27-23
augie77  27-23
GS  25-25
NCF  25-25
7ex  23-27
Greek Tragedy  21-29
Captain Joe  18-32

I am dropping Joe Scibelli because I think he got hurt once again in Saturday's game. I am adding Jon Patron from Plattsburgh State. 

Used Scibelli for the 3 games listed above. Patron's only game in December is on the 30th and I'm not sure if he's playing so he's on my bench for now.. I have 48 games and if I do use him on the 30th I will have to drop a game somewhere else.....which I may do but will figure that out later. Just wanted to make sure he was on my team before someone else decided to take a flyer on him and because I told him 2 weeks ago when he visited the school and guaranteed me that he was coming back 2nd semester, that he was going to be on my fantasy team. ;D

Yes, u wouldn't like to tell him another fantasy GM picked him up, instead; might have negatively affected his return ::)

You are correct about that, ronk. The Cardinals and I need him to be at his very best. Especially since we already have 4 losses (we are presently 4-4) without his talents in the first semester. We can't afford many more losses if we hope to be considered for an at large NCAA bid should we not claim the automatic bid as winner of the SUNYAC tournament. Hopefully with his 18.7 ppg and 9 rpg back in our lineup we will win most of our remaining games. He will also make everyone around him instantly better as the defense will have to account for his offensive talents instead of his replacement.

More importantly, as a life lesson to all those kids that consider you a role model, you just can't lie to them and not have him on your fantasy team.

Yes Greek for sure. The magicman is a legend in Plattsburgh and I can't have my reputation besmirched by allowing that to happen. :D Besides, Jon promised me many good outings as one of my fantasy players 8-)... and I wouldn't want all those points going to one of you guys (or girl).  ;)


Besides, what better feeling is there than to have Patron make a bucket and you stand up and yell, "That guy's on my fantasy team...

I won't be standing up and yelling it out but the fans and player's parents that are sitting near me will certainly know that he's on my team. ;D

Dec. 17  Two teams in action today in Holiday Tournaments
   
Buffalo State vs Bridgewater (Va.) 12:00 PM  The Luck Stone Holiday Classic @ Hampden-Sydney, Va.

I hope the Buffalo State Bengals didn't eat too much at the Buffalo Wild Wings joint yesterday after their win over host Hampden-Sydney. Today the oddsmakers have made them a 5 point favorite over another Old Dominion Athletic Conference foe in Bridgewater (Va). This game will resemble a track meet as both teams like to race up and down the court at high speed. I'm picking the Bengals to win the Luck Stone Holiday Classic Title. Final score: Buffalo State 93 Bridgewater 79.

     
Whittier vs  Brockport State        2:00 PM    Daytona Beach Tournament

The Golden Eagles are 7 points from having an undefeated season. That is the total point difference in the 2 losses they have suffered so far this year. They are currently on a 2 game winning streak after a sweep of the conference's  North Country schools last weekend.

Whittier College is a member of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athleic Conference and bring a 2-4 record into this contest. The oddsmakers think Brockport will win this meeting by a 7 point margin. I think they will win it by more than that. Final score Brockport 91 Whittier 80.

Cedric Harris Centenary (La) vs Millsaps 16, Austin 30

49 total games. Magicman will have to cut a game out.


Rapoza's game against Amherst was cut to give me 48 games.

Riley Naclerio for St. Lawrence was supposed to play on December 15th. He is injured and out for the season and did not play in that game at all. I'm dropping him which means I can add someone with 2 games.

I am adding Cedric Harris from Centenary (La.) for games on 12-16 vs Millsaps and 12-30 vs Austin. That gives me, once again, 48 games.

Cortland all over Old Westbury 90-66 led by Zach Lydon's double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds.

The Red Dragons were listening to my predictions as they made my forecast of a Cortland win by an 87-68 score almost a reality.

Buffalo State defeats Hampden Sydney 95-86 as all 5 starters hit for double figures.

The Bengals wanted to make a liar out of the magicman and I'm glad they did. Should have known not to pick against the Bengals in a holiday tournament but forgot that they always seem to win when they play in someone else's holiday extravaganza.  Keeping the streak alive once again.

Now tomorrow go out and take down the other ODAC team you have to play, Bridgewater (Va.),  and make it a double your fun weekend.

If Chris Downs doesn't stop playing zone I'm not sure I'm going to watch another game the rest of the season.  I am not going to watch this team give up 15 three pointers every single game.  Enough already.

St. Lawrence has bigger problems than that as they have just lost their leading scorer and rebounder for the season.

December 16th    Two games on the schedule for today


Buffalo State  @  Hampden-Sydney        2:00 PM   Luck Stone Holiday Classic at Hampden-Sydney

The Bengals take on the first of two Old Dominion Athletic Conference opponents when they tackle another team of  big cats...the Tigers of tournament host Hampden-Sydney College. The Tigers own a couple of decent wins this year despite their 3-4 overall record, most recently defeating D3hoops #23 Emory University 90-85.

The Bengals have dropped 3 conference games in a row and now sit at 4-4 on the year. They are listed by the oddsmakers as a slight 3 point underdog in this one. I think the Bengals will be up against it in this one and I see them coming out on the short end of a 85-79 final score.

Cortland State     @   SUNY-Old Westbury        2:00 PM

The Red Dragons are 7-1 and winners of 5 in a row. Currently Cortland is all alone in 1st place in the SUNYAC with a 4-0 record and they sit a game in front of Plattsburgh, Brockport and Oswego who are all tied with 3-1 records. Cortland got a little love this week in the D3hoops Top 25 poll as they were mentioned for the first time with 4 points. That 2 point loss to Ithaca College back on the 28th of November is keeping them from a loftier position but they will move upward if they keep winning.

Old Westbury is 3-3 and their most recent effort was a loss to Mount St. Mary by a 77-64 score. Potsdam State beat Mount St. Mary's back on 11-21 by an 84-81 score. The oddsmakers have Cortland listed as a 13 point favorite in this one but I think they win it by a bigger margin than that. Cortland 87 Old Westbury 68.

Oswego State 100  St Lawrence 63

The Lakers were all over the Larries right out of the gate and jumped out to early leads of 9-2, 20-6 and 30-8. The Saints came back to cut the lead to single digits at 46-38 with 1:32 left in the first half but the Lakers got a 3 pointer from Ian Schupp, his 3rd one of 6, that he had on the night and a layup by Louis Avellino to end the period and go into the break with a 51-38 advantage. That was as close as the Larries would get.

The 2nd frame was all Oswego as they doubled the Saints by scoring 49 points to SLU's 25. Oswego quickly went up by 20 points as the lead just kept growing to 30 and ultimately 41 points at 100-59.

St. Lawrence was in trouble before the game even tipped off when they had to play this game without their leading scorer and rebounder, senior big man, Riley Naclerio. The 6'9" forward suffered a season ending injury and without their go-to guy to rely on, the Saints will be up against it for the rest of the year.

Oswego was led by Ian Schupp and Brandan Gartland who both had a game high 20 points. Scupp added 4 assists, while Gartland had 4 rebounds. Jamir Ferebee had 14 points, a game high 6 assists and 6 rebounds, while Tyler Pierre had 13 points and 8 boards. Liam Sanborn had 11 points, a game high 9 rebounds and also tied for the high with 6 assists.

St. Lawrence got 11 points from Pierre Coffy and 10 points from Cam Keely. Keely added 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Ben Crawford had 8 points and 6 rebounds, while Jack Twardy had 7 points and 6 rebounds.

Local product for St. Lawrence, from my neck of the woods, (I can use that phrase cause it's an Oswego State game and NBC Weatherman, Al Roker, went to Oswego State) freshman Kevin Murray, from Plattsburgh's Seton Catholic High School, saw his first double digit minutes of the season and responded with 6 points and 2 rebounds in 13 minutes. I see good things from this youngster down the road.

Oswego improved to 5-4 overall (3-1 in the SUNYAC) and will be off until December 29th when they travel back up North to the same place as they were on Friday...Canton, New York, to face the other D3 team in that town...the SUNY-Canton Kangaroos.

mm--  did not see Naclerio in box score ???

No, I watched the game and he didn't play. I figured he was hurt and missed the game. Later I found out that he had a season ending injury so I will be replacing him. I feel bad for him since this is his senior year. I spoke with him for about 15 minutes a couple of weeks ago when he was in Plattsburgh and told him he was on my fantasy team. He got a big kick out of that. Fine young man and I hope he is able to get a medical redshirt if he wants to come back next year. He should be eligible for one as he only played in 7 games.

December 14th   One game today in the YAC

Oswego at St Lawrence    8:00 PM

Which Laker team will show up tonight?...the one that lost to Elmira 103 (yikes) to 90 or the one that comes into this game having defeated 3 conference teams in a row, Oneonta, Buffalo State, and Fredonia.

The oddsmakers have the Saints winning a close one here by 2 points,  but I'm taking the Lakers to win by a 78-70 final score and stretch that winning streak to 4 games. I do hope that SLU's Riley Naclerio has a big game since I have him on my fantasy team. He gave me 50 fantasy points the last game he played against Potsdam State.  Would like a repeat of that performance tonight.

ESPNU will rebroadcast the Brockpirt vs Mary Hardin game Friday at 4 pm!

Are you sure you wanted to post this on the E8 hoops board? Think you meant to use the football boards. And which Friday? Today or next Friday?

I like that!

C'mon Gordon, that can't be the first time you've heard the Yellow Jackets referred to as Bald Wally, can it? ??? We've been using that moniker for years here on the Pick 'Em board. ;D
