Port Washington line was fine yesterday as I had to reroute to it as well.

Two times on the same possession he has Earlington standing 5 feet from him, with only one defender back, and he insists on taking in himself! Why? Hate to rip on him after the game he had, but he's a selfish player. One time he got in the air under the basket with nowhere to go and decided to just fall out of bounds rather than trying to pass it toward a teammate.
27 fouls called in the second half. 27
Watching the game today made me realize how much Williams would have helped guarding McClung the other night.
Glad to see Champagnie producing again.


I agree he should have given the ball to Duke on the two and one but like many others said he has a scorers mentality and that may take some time. With the way this team misses layups an extra pass doesn’t always help anyway.

SJU is so offensively challenged with poor outside shooting, terrible three point shooting and a non existent inside game that Dunn and LJ make moves to the basket that are obviously forced but what else can this offense do.
Without Dunn on Sat. It would have been a struggle for SJU to score fifty. Who else except LJ can create a shot?

Can we lock Marcellus in a gym with Bernard King and Charles Barkley over the summer?

Who is the guy behind Rutledge and to Moses’s left. Thanks in advance


Thinking Tux was asking about the guy between (behind) Mahoney and Hamilton.
Probably got in the pic by accident.


No I didn’t recognize Lamont Middleton. LOL and I thought Sealy was Mike Moses. Looks just like him



From left to right, Ron Rutledge, Lamont Middleton, Coach Carnesecca, Brian, Mahoney, Shawnelle Scott, Amir Sealey (Malik's Brother), and Edwin Searcy. The highlight of the afternoon was Ed Searcy showing off the NBA Championship ring he received as a member of the Boston Celtics.

Very nice win!

Continuing the CA vs MSG debate from previous years, this year in major games we are:
0-2 at CA (#100 Vermont, #3 Butler- avg #52 NET)
2-0 at MSG (#11 WVU, #73 DePaul- avg #42 NET)

We have loads of MSG upsets in recent years including WVU this year and Nova/Duke/Syracuse during the Mullin years.

Last year we lost to DePaul by 8 at CA (and by 9 @ DePaul), but then beat them by 8 at MSG during the BET. Without that final MSG win we never would've made the Dance. The previous year we lost to DePaul by 17 @ MSG.

More MSG games, please.

Made my Saturday to watch Johnnies beat DePaul...I had been suffering a "Deja Vu" thinking back to last year's 12 - 0 start...Seton Hall "bad calls" = 1st conference game & loss...then all downhill from there...losing 3 in a row had me worried big-time! Putting Heron at 4th position seems to work nicely, get him back into the flow! Beat Providence is the next Order of Business! Go Johnnies!!!

Much needed win.

I don't want to take away from some decent performances, but DePaul looked pretty bad yesterday. At times this year, they have played much better.

The attendance was announced at 6,636. I know it's DePaul at noon, but at that number you might as well host at Carnesecca. I would imagine this is an issue Cragg is looking at and, hopefully, we will see some measures designed to fill MSG seats for the remainder of this year.

I cut through New Hyde Park on Monday to visit my aunt before flying back home, and it looked like there was a bunch of construction nonsense going on there. That would definitely affect Mineola, etc. if something is going on there.

Id like to see the duke drop 10lbs to increase his quickness and get a little more hops. Ive seen videos w/ his trainer and he is getting tons of mid range and 3s up. Its just not translating in a game yet. Hopefully that will come next year.
