Team preview: Stony Brook
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Having been a Division I men's basketball coach for more than a quarter century, Nick Macarchuk is sure of one thing: You are never sure of anything.
"I thought we were going to be good last year," said Macarchuk, whose team endured separate losing streaks of five and six games before winning two games in the conference tournament (including a quarterfinal upset of top-seeded Boston University) before finishing 10-20. "I still think we have a chance to be good, but you never know with injuries and everything."
