Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

This is the thing about McCall that makes me so damn frustrated. As soon as Navarro gives up the ball you face guard him and deny a pass back to him. Game over. If he brings the ball up and doesn't pass you double him and force him to pass and then you face guard him and deny a pass back to him. Gam...

Re: Game 8, 2020-21: at Fordham (1/17)

The defense really improved today! The effort was tremendous as the rotations were so much better! Coaches have definitely been working on it as the improvements are apparent Dibaji Walker has been playing fantastic defense the last two games and deserves to start just for his D! I hope they keep wo...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Smart already proved himself to be a consistent winner at VCU which is very different than MM. Nonetheless I still hope MM can get us there.

Re: Is MM a winner?

I want to credit MM for yesterday’s effort. I am sticking to my original question and observations but the defensive efforts and rebounding were so much better yesterday. The attempt to stop dribble penetration or at least force it wide was pretty good. Weak side help rotation was better and a relie...

Ok after watching the team lose three times tonight, I’ll answer my own question. No.

Is MM a winner?

So I apologize in advance for this indulgent post but as a UMass hoop fan since 1969 and long time HS basketball coach I have to raise a few points and I’d love to know what folks think. I believe there are strategies that are basic and very key to being a winner and I haven’t seen that yet with MM....

Re: Game 4, 2020-21: Bryant (12/21)

The defense seems so far behind where it should be for a competitive program at this level. The on ball defense is porous, the communication seems absent, the D blocking out and rebounding is uninspired and the weak side help is painfully slow. To hell with the O game if you can’t lock down possessi...

Defense needs to get much much better or we’re never going anywhere!

Re: 2020-21 Season

Maybe McCall will learn and grow enough as a coach during the next couple of years to be a top level coach. It could happen!?!

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I think Gasparini could be a huge bonus if he works hard. He is a man and has experience. Hands look great. Bigger guys frequently develop later. Love this addition! I could imagine him as a 5 and 5 guy in ten minutes PT which would really help us!!
