December 25th, 2020 - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Just a big thank you to everyone who is enjoying the game and making it fun for me and the rest of the participates. I know 2020 has been a difficult year for most of us and I'm hoping the game helped alleviate some of the isolation/cabin fever. Have a wonderful Christmas season and with a bit of luck (and maybe a successful vaccine rollout), 2021 will be better.

January 18th, 2021 - A Pedestrian Loss - St. Bonaventure Bonnies
St. Bonaventure lost to Occidental College 81-76 at the Reilly Center before a small crowd of partisan supporters. Occidental jumped out to an early lead and stayed out in front for the entire contest. SBU has now lost 4 straight games and 6 out of their last 7. To say they are in the doldrums would be an understatement. Sophomore guard Damon Bishop, who’s nose is perennially out of joint, once again put on a clinic for poor shooting. Turnovers destroyed any chance for St. Bona to get back in the game.
The lone highlight for the Bonnies was the sterling play of junior walk-on Johnnie Pedersen. Pedersen scored 31 points and hauled down 18 rebounds in a valiant effort.

January 17th, 2021 - Peter Pfeiffer becomes 1st 4-star signing! - Massachusetts Maritime Academy Buccaneers
Peter Pfeiffer aka The Pepper Picker aka The Pied Pfeiffer has signed with MMA. He's a quality JUCO PG who has held opponents under 38% from the field. He'll like start next season, but Nicolas Longoria has been fantastic and Kent Adkins is solid as well. Seeing the growth from the FR has given me hope that my team will soon be very competitive in the conference schedule.
