Chris Sullivan, the assistant coach for Fisher, was on the halftime show for the football team this past weekend and mentioned that the outlook for Fisher is bright for this coming season. Bringing back all but one player, and apparently there are "several recruits that will compete for time, and see the floor".

I have no other information, but it got me excited for basketball to start. Would love to see Fisher get back to that elite level they had several years back, but we will have to wait and see.

Can't wait!
GO FISHER!!!

Fisher has updated their basketball roster for the coming season. 5 new freshman, and what looks like an AU transfer (Pep? - Curtis Marshall). Coach Kornaker was on the halftime show of the Fisher football game this past week and mentioned three names as incoming freshman who may see a lot of time. Jake Hicks (6'5 Guard from Shenendehowa), Tyler English (6'4 Guard from St. Mary's/Lockport), and Tyler Farrell (6'3 Forward from Hilton).

I don't know much about any of them, but if they all see significant time Fisher could have some good size guards to go with Chaz Lott and Keegan Ryan. Those two are the anchors of this years team I am sure, but Stefan Bock and Kindard will play a role as well. I have heard a few interviews with the coaching staff and they all seem to be optimistic about this team, so it should be interesting.
GO FISHER!!!

I think Fisher is the preseason favorite to win the E8 this year. The Ryan kid should improve considerably over last year and if he stays healthy the Cardinals will be team to beat...on paper anyway. ;)

Ditto to what the "Magic 1" said ;)

Apparently the E8 Coaches agree with you, as they have Fisher #1 in the pre-season poll. Stevens in at 2nd.

The D3hoops season has kicked off! Naz lost a tough one to Rochester in a game they could have easily stolen at the end and were up by 3 with a minute and a half left. Alfred played great and beat ESF by a large margin. Stevens lost to Brooklyn by 15. Interesting that Evan Klimchak isn't on the Stevens roster, that could really hurt the guard play for Stevens. Hartwick beat Farmingdale State by 17 and came back to Laker Hall the next night and lost an ugly came to Oswego State. Both teams didn't shoot well in that game. Elmira will be a surprise team in this league after a big win at Oswego and watching them against Farmingdale State. I think like last year they will surprise some teams at home and get better throughout the year. Ithaca lost to Skidmore in both teams season opener.

Not a huge fan of Fisher starting the season so late this year (11/25). I would have liked to see a game around now.

Name doesn't ring a bell and Pep got well acquainted with the squad last year. Checked rosters from earlier seasons and the name didn't appear. Perhaps a transfer from Alfred State, although last year's Pioneer roster did not include said Curtis Marshall, who perhaps transferred to Fisher from Texas Tech....?!? Pep is thinking y'all might want to check on his eligibility.  ;D

Fisher finally gets underway tonight against what looks like a pretty good Oneonta team. Should be a good early test. I am really interested to see the starting 5 for Fisher. I am sure that Lott and Ryan will be in there, but with the incoming freshman looking to get some time I am interested to see how Coach Kornaker puts them together.

Tonight should give a pretty good idea of what Fisher has this year.
GO FISHER!!!
