Re: New Improvements at Dwyer

The simple answer is No. Somehow Niagara seemed never to focus on growing any real endowment which would form a basis of financial strength until maybe 20 years ago. In today's world, Duquesne has an endowment of $500+/- million vs Niagara's of $120+/- million. The lack of any major corporations in ...

Re: Matt Brash

This should be the play.
What is the expression about” better being lucky than good.”
Glad to see Brash being part of a sensational play .

Re: Iorio story

Iorio will need to be one of the players this year increasing his point production to offset the loss of Hammonds’ 18 pts. per game. I hope Iorio goes from 8 pts to 12 pts per game.
Thomasson is the other key. I think he has the potential to go up to at least 14 pts per game.

Re: 2023 MBB Recruiting

Yeah, I missed his elevation which was incredible. I think I still have the picture from the Index of him stuffing Bob Lsnier.

Re: 2023 MBB Recruiting

An important aspect was the straightness of his jump coupled with the high release. Two hands oerfectly balancing the ball. Seemed simple to imitate, but most kids avoid the basics with something off balance.

Re: 2023 MBB Recruiting

Too bad NU has very few videos of Murph in his days at Niagara. Talk about a perfect jump shot.
I never understood why so many players are not taught the perfect jump shot or for that matter the sky hook shot of Alcindor.

Re: MAAC NEWS: IONA COLLEGE BECOMES IONA UNIVERSITY

Cuomo’s Excelsior program was probably the nail in coffin for many small private colleges in NYS. Somehow he just ignored the fact that private colleges enrolled 40%+ of college students in NYS. At the end, he gave them crumbs to look competitive. I am sure that there is No look back on the free pub...

Re: MAAC NEWS: IONA COLLEGE BECOMES IONA UNIVERSITY

I really do not want to pick on Iona, but every college in NYS will be an University. Evidently, NYS changed its policies in the last year becoming less restrictive on the classification.
This goes along with the general theme in America of not demanding any excellence.

Re: NU lands three transfers/ OOC & AHA schedules complete

Why would the scheduling guru not make the 2 game series with Canisius an away and home game for the 2 teams not 1 hour apart? Is a college hockey 2 game series always at the home of one team with no exceptions?
I think the Pros allow such.
