Re: Game 6, 2019-20: vs Virginia (Mohegan Sun, 11/23)

I'm in Section 118, Row C. My recollection is there is not a bad seat in the house. There is also a Court Club gathering after the game at the Bow & Arrow Sports Pub.

Re: Game 6, 2019-20: vs Virginia (Mohegan Sun, 11/23)

The stated times for all of the games would suggest the arena will not be cleared out after the second game Saturday. It's not like CCSU is an attraction worthy of separate admission. And I believe there are other entertainment options on the property. :twisted:

Re: Defending National Champ games

I agree with Arkansas because of the way the game started. When Arkansas took the floor, their players just stood around, held their arms up and invited the crowd to admire them. Then Roe got loose off Camby's opening tip, flushed it 2 seconds into the game and the Civic Center went absolutely nuts....

Pretty obvious that UVA will try to pound it inside on us and take away our perimeter shooting.

First things first, though. Let's take care of business against Rider, which is no gimmee.

No problem with the no comments on Chatman, these seem like sensitive issues that require some privacy.

Re: Game 6, 2019-20: vs Virginia (Mohegan Sun, 11/23)

Tonight's match-up against Vermont ought to be interesting since the Catamounts are 4-0, with three of those wins coming in the road...including handing St. John's its first loss of the season in NY this past Saturday. Vermont is a legitimately good mid-major program. I'm glad they're not on our sc...

Re: Game 4, 2019-20: Central CT (11/16)

The thing you worry about with a young team is they are always capable of losing a home game they should win, so hopefully they will take care of business against CCSU and Rider. It would be nice being 5-0 going into Mohegan and the tough part of our OOC schedule,

The response from the campus administration (Swamy and Bamford) has been appropriate. Ignore.

Re: Game 2, 2019-20: at Fairfield (Bridgeport, 11/9)

We had five freshmen playing big minutes in their first road game and they still won. I'll take that no matter who we were playing. We're only two games in but I am optimistic it will only get better. East could be the first pure PG we have had since Chris Lowe. Chaz was really a combo guard.

I don't like public obscenity. This from somebody who drops frequent F-bombs in private conversation. I guess I'm just a (choose your obscenity) old fart.

Re: Game 2: Southern Illinois - 9/7/2019

There's got to be some kind of happy medium. I remember when the PA system was barely audible and the stadium was a morgue. However, after one game, I can honestly say I wouldn't have bought tickets to the Commonwealth Club if I had known I'd be inviting deafness. Maybe part of it is the absurdity o...

For the first time ever, I am happy there was no coverage of a UMass game in the Globe.

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

I picked up tickets for section 117, which are center court, bench side, upper level for both days. The price gulf between upper and lower level was too much, so I went with upper level. I've never been to a game at that arena, so maybe they'll let folks scoot down to the better seats if it's empty...
