The wait is over for Stony Brook

by - Published March 12, 2016 in Columns, Your Phil of Hoops

Stony Brook is going to the NCAA Tournament.

At long last, the program that’s had the regular season titles, then so much heartache in the America East Tournament, is a winner.

And at long last, a few things can come to a stop, too.

The Morning Dish – Tuesday, March 1, 2016

by - Published March 1, 2016 in The Morning Dish

Where has the 2015-16 season gone?

The presence of a leap year day yesterday did nothing to convince us that the past four months have absolutely flown by. If anything, it only enhanced that feeling, as conference postseason honors started trickling in at the same time that we started checking out the brackets for the first conference tournaments that kick in starting…today?

Super Tuesday, indeed.

The Morning Dish – Monday, February 22, 2016

by - Published February 22, 2016 in The Morning Dish

This weekend was just what California needed. Although Sunday was not the bigger game of the two for the Golden Bears, it was still important all the same, and their already strong NCAA Tournament candidacy got a big boost this weekend.

Washington State was within striking distance of the Golden Bears at the half, down just 40-31, but Cal blew open the game as the second half went on and routed the host Cougars 80-62. It capped off a sweep of the Washington schools on the road, and for a Cal team that had struggled on the road, this was just what they needed to take care of any remaining knocks on their resume.

Scanning the Nation Notebook : On Kyle Collinsworth, USC, Southern Illinois and more

by - Published January 27, 2016 in Columns

If you haven’t seen any BYU games yet this year, you should. In fact, you should see as many of them as possible. The end of Kyle Collinsworth’s college career is near, and when it’s finished college basketball will lose one of the truly unique players it has had in many years. It’s not just the triple-doubles (10 of them, easily an NCAA record now). We’re talking about a player whose game is especially unique in this era of basketball with its share of ball stoppers, serial dribblers and ball-screen specialists who have perhaps never even heard of a V-cut.

The Morning Dish – Monday, March 9, 2015

by - Published March 9, 2015 in The Morning Dish

March is the best month of the year for a reason. College basketball has the conference tournaments and the grand-daddy of them all, the NCAA Tournament. The NIT, CBI and CIT add to it. While the last four are the big ones, especially the NCAA, the conference tournaments provide plenty of lasting memories as well. There, teams play with everything on the line, especially in conferences that will only send their champion to the NCAA Tournament.

Enter this weekend. We had the Ohio Valley Conference giving us another memorable championship game on Saturday night. Then on Sunday, a day where three automatic bids were handed out, it was a semifinal game in Baltimore that provided us with an instant classic.

Despite a hit on the bottom line, Stony Brook’s transition continues

by - Published December 16, 2014 in Columns, Your Phil of Hoops

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – It wasn’t the kind of tale of two halves that anyone would want, much less one that came in having lost two in a row. Indeed, as conference play gets closer, a coach would rather his team get more consistent. And for Stony Brook, the way the roof caved in on them in the second half of Saturday’s loss at Providence was not good no matter how you try to slice it. Still, it’s part of a growing process this team has to go through.

“For 27 minutes, we were pretty good,” said head coach Steve Pikiell.

The Seawolves were within 49-44 after leading at times in the first half. It was after that point that Providence took over and won it convincingly, going on a 10-1 run as part of a bigger 16-3 run from which they never looked back in the 79-61 triumph.
