Orange Men Face Big Week

Monday, February 9th, 2015

The SUNY Orange men's basketball team's playoff hopes hinge on three key home games this week. Hopefully the third time will be the charm as the Colts' game with Kingsborough has been snowed out twice already. Orange will play Kingsborough on Wednesday evening, February 11, at 7:00 PM. Orange follows that up by playing Thursday against Mid Hudson Conference foe Rockland at 7:00 PM. Orange finishes its week against Suffolk Community College on Saturday at 2:00 PM. All of the Colts remaining games are home in the Edward A. Diana Physical Education Center. Come out and support the team as it makes a push for the Region 19 Playoffs!

New Faces Aplenty for Men's Basketball

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

For the first time in decades a new name will be leading the Colts on the hardwood this season. Joe Detz is the new head coach, and along with assistants Scott Oliver and Jordan Dirago , will be looking to imprint his style of play on the team. Local fans will recognize Detz as the long time head coach at Marlboro High School. Coach Detz also has previous college coaching experience having led the Dutchess Community College Falcons for several years.

Along with a new coach comes a slew of new players for the Colts. Only two players return off of last year's playoff qualifying team. Creshawn Jude from Christ the King High School and Anthony Bailey from S.S. Seward. Both players saw significant minutes as freshman and will be looked to for their battle tested demeanors. This year's team will have a decidedly local flavor with twelve of the fourteen players coming from Section 9 programs. Nine section 9 schools are represented on this year's roster.

Coach Detz is putting his team right into the fire this year with a very challenging schedule. Featured games this year include an early match up with the defending NJCAA Div 3 Champs, Brookdale Community College. Other tough teams on the schedule include division one power ASA and Community College of Rhode Island which is a fixture in the Div two top 20 poll.

Orange kicks off the2013-2014 campaign on Friday Nov, 1 at 5:00 p.m. versus Rockland in a non conference matchup in the Goldberg Classic at Columbia Greene Community College.
