I watched the meeting. It was basically about what Niagara is doing to upgrade facilities and the academic success of all the student athletes. They did not touch on the individual teams. They gave Jason Lammers a shout out for the quality academic work the hockey team did as well as the other teams. The graduation rate is at 95%. They also discussed the direction Niagara was taking with diversity and student engagement in activities on campus. All in all it was a good commercial for the university. It seemed to be scripted by Callen and Gray.

Special mention was made for the Women’s swim team winning the MAAC. The first NU championship in 10 years. This team was a disaster just a few years ago, so the new coach did a great job.
Also a shout out to Jada and the Womens BBall team. Nice mention of the new lockers for the both basketball teams.
Overall, I thought it was well produced as a good Infomercial for NU Athletics. Approximately 75 minutes. It is posted on the NU web site.

Remember a few months ago I said NU needed a training facility that was the "crown jewel of the MAAC" and that it could help revive NU athletics?

Well it's now confirmed that St Bona is acquiring funding for $15-20 mil basketball practice facility - which will make it one of the best in the A-10.

I guess my assessment wasn't far off - only an hour 45 to the south off.....
