Brockport State 93 Oneonta State 83

The teams jockeyed back and forth through the early part of the period and were tied at 16 with 11:18 to go. Brockport then went on a 14-4 spurt that put them up by a double digit 30-20 lead. The rest of the period saw the lead vary between 7 and 13 points before the Golden Eagles went into the break up 50 to 40.

Brockport quickly built the lead to 15 points, 3 minutes into the period and maintained control throughout. The Red Dragons cut into a 14 point lead with a 9-2 burst that brought them within 7 points at 65-58 with 12:47 left  in the game. Not quite 2 minutes later the score was 74-60 and the lead was back to 14. It reached as much as 20 points, as the Eagles had an answer for every Oneonta thrust. If it wasn't Clifton Lyerly with a flurry of points, it was Cordell Torres or Devon Gavin. If it seemed like they scored in bunches, it was because they did.

The Golden Eagles
Lyerly was the leader for Brockport once again, and captured scoring honors with a game high 24 points (10x16 fg, 0x3 3's, 4x8 ft). He got his first double-double of the season with another game high total of 11 rebounds. He added a pair of assists and 2 steals.

Devonn Gavin was close behind with 21 points (9x15 fg, 3x3 3's). 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist.

Hamed Shamseldin had 14 points (4x14 fg, 3x8 3's, 3x4 ft), 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.

Marcus Blythers, had 10 points, 5 blocks, 4 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists.

Cordell Torres had 9 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists.

Jake Mitchell was 1x1 from the field for a 3 pointer and his first points in a Brockport uniform.


The Red Dragons
Dwayne Freeman scored a career high 22 points (9x14 fg, 3x5 3's, 1x1 ft), with 2 assists a rebound and a block

Lawrence Coleman had 21 points (8x14 fg, 2x4 3's). He had a  team high 8 rebounds and 3 steals.

Mikey McElroy had 12 points and 7 rebounds.

Frankie Kelly chipped in with 3 points, 8 assists, 4 rebounds and a steal.

Freshman Harrison Deegan scored his first SUNYAC points with 7 points in 5 minutes of court time.

Both teams had similar shooting percentages with Brockport  hitting 37x76 (48.7%) and Oneonta shooting  29x61 (47.5%). The Golden Eagles were 8x22 from long range (36.4%) while Oneonta was 7x17 (41.2%). The Red Dragons were quite a bit better from the line making 18x22 free throws (81.8%) to only 11x24 for Brockport (45.8%). Oneonta won the battle of the boards as well, grabbing 44 rebounds to 36 for the Eagles.

I stated in my review of this game that Brockport had the stronger bench and would come at the Red Dragons aggressively and in waves. Their bench outscored Oneonta's bench 36-19 and the Brockport defense was a big factor in this game as they created 25 turnovers to only 13 for the Eagles. Brockport had 13 steals to 5 for Oneonta. The turnover differential resulted in 25 points for Brockport to only 13 points for Oneonta. That 12 point difference mirrored the final score's 10 point margin.

Brockport remains undefeated at 5-0 overall, and 1-0 in the conference will host New Paltz on Saturday at 2:00 PM.

Oneonta falls to 1-4 overall, and 0-1 in league play. They will travel to Geneseo to complete their weekend road trip for a 2:00 matchup on Saturday.

Colorado College with 4 All Americans? Interesting.

And Trinity also with 4.  Also interesting.  8 from those two in same conference.
They were able to get the SID's from their conference to vote apparently.
Some odd selections all over the board.

If you're interested in studying revenues, expenses, and scholarship dollars for all college sports, I'd recommend the EADA analysis.

Maybe it's just me, but that pink font color over the black background is really hard to read.
That's not pink, it's fuchsia. Just like my shirt! Pink...hmpphhh.

I thought it was only women who like complex names for simple colors.

I can speak about my current D-2 experience at Central Washington.

I used to be a critic of D2 but now I work for a D2 school. In some cases the athletics scholarships do help students afford college when they could not before. Few scholarships are full scholarships, but every little bit helps. The conference up here used to be NAIA before they moved over, and they didn't want to give up athletics scholarships for recruiting purposes. The student athletes here, for the most part, are pretty serious about their grades and degrees too. The instagram pages of athletes during commencement all show them beaming with their caps and gowns.

A lot of the D-2 schools don't have big endowments that they can use for scholarships. It's a different world at state schools that aren't the behemoths, and NCAA D-2 is a lot more structured and cleaner than the NAIA.

The mission here, at least, is to turn the hidden gems and first generation students into scholars and life-long learners. Affordability is the key here. We're trying not to use as many transfers as we have in the past - though the University as a whole does get a lot of transfer students from community colleges in Washington State. But our AD wants more emphasis on freshmen instead of transfers unless there's a true need at a position.

It's not like you're going to get a lot of exposure playing football for a D-1AA school, or hoops for someone like Niagara or Canisius.

However, not all D-2 schools can use all of their scholarship allotments due to budgets. I don't know of a D-1 school that doesn't max out in most of their programs. Maybe some don't. But it seems only Alaska - Anchorage has the ability to use a lot of their allotment in each sport they offer in our conference. (Thank you, Division 1 hockey - though Alaska - Fairbanks also has D-1 hockey and doesn't seem to be able to utilize their allotment.)

Conversely, Western Oregon made the D-2 final four in hoops last year and is usually ranked last in aid given to men's athletes.

Anyway, that's long winded. I know in the Midwest, there's a lot of choices in colleges, but I think the D-2 choice is one of dollars and cents for the athletes if the schools have similar academic programs.

Not sure why they say they would have more expenses in Division III, unless they are in an area no where close to Division III schools - but in the south there are a lot of DIIIs.

What people don't appreciate is that across all NCAA divisions and sports, the base budget to run athletics is very similar for all schools. The differences for many are in how much they want to put into athletics or not. The budgets start to change in DII and DI when the scholarships are added to the budgets. So D1s who are starting to struggle will transfer to D3 because they can drop the millions of dollars of scholarships from their budget and suddenly they aren't underwater anymore. It is the biggest reason Division III continues to grow from D1, D2, and NAIA looking for the same athletic experience, but without the massive financial burden.

And please stop pretending I don't understand the Division III landscape. I work very, very hard to educate myself and then inform people of what is going on in the Division. You keep trying to pretend, apparently, that I don't know anything... yet, I don't think you could find anyone in this Division that feels that way. I do far more than just cover basketball in this division and your constant attempts to disrespect me and what I know is getting annoying. Maybe I should just ignore you for my own sake, but I had to at least say something before I do.
