Ithaca loses some firepower along with Mullins retiring, but I bet they'll be fine with Burton at the helm.  They won't miss too big of a beat.    Next year is going to be interesting.   RPI and Hobart should be top dog, and Union only loses one player.  I can't imagine Skidmore will be as poor as they were this year.   My alma mater did not have a great season but they were quite young and affected by injuries all year, including one who was supposed to be the starting center.   Doesn't hurt to have the last 2 LL rookies of the year in the starting squad next season.    I'd keep an eye out for Clarkson next year too.

I believe this infusion of youth will propel Ithaca to becoming a major player in the LL/East Region for years to come. Between the campus and facilities at Ithaca, there is plenty of reason for top D3 prospects to consider playing basketball for the Bombers. I believe recruiting took a bit of a step back the last couple of years there; maybe this will inject some life into their recruiting efforts.

Ithaca is definitely a beautiful campus and located with some great scenery.

Nice to see some more local talent commit to SLU.    https://www.nny360.com/sports/highschoolsports/high-school-basketball-macaulay-brothers-commit-to-st-lawrence-university/article_fb363596-002a-505f-bceb-c154db0769f1.html    I was hoping Downs would try to recruit them but I thought they might get some lower end D1 offers or get snagged by Coach Bechtel at Potsdam.   One hallmark of any good SLU team in the past has usually been a local face or two on the roster.  Bardeschewski in '98, Sharlow, Shaver and Augliano in '07, J. Sharlow, G. Sharlow and Parham in '09 and '10 etc.

There's a pretty big haul of fresh faces coming into Canton next year.  Now at least 4 newcomers next year by my count, not including the minimum of 2 that were part of this season's recruiting.

Some Liberty League action tomorrow night with Clarkson making the trip to Burkman Gymnasium.   I've had my guesses as to how many players SLU would have for this year and I was largely right.  There are only 8 players on the roster.   Several players that did not get much playing time last year which is what I thought would be the case.  2 starters from last year, with Hicks being the most notable roster inclusion.   He did a post grad year though so I can see why he wouldn't want to take a whole year off.  With the amount of recruits coming in next year there is going to be a pretty big roster next season.

Sean Burton resigns from IC effective immediately, per The Ithacan. That seems less than great.

He never coached a game, right?
