Re: 2020 Recruiting

^ Just like McCall was going to go back to Florida after his first year. It's UMass Derangement Syndrome.

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

First game of the year for me, first game of his life for the kiddo. Still haunted by when they throttled us in the 2010/11 season. Granted we've already avenged that loss but still... Hoping for a strong effort from start to finish and maybe we can get Sy back for this one too. Good game to get his...

Re: 2019-20 season

But 5th out of 6 in a strong basketball conference like the MAC means they will be a very tough out.

They're underselling the home court advantage we'll have @ Harvard tbh

Re: 2019-20 season

^ Definitely. We will probably be favored in our next 2 games, but very well might be underdogs in those next 6 games you listed (the first four will impact the last 2 vs the Ivies). 9-4 OOC would be terrific but 7-6 is my guess. Under .500 would be disappointing.

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

Eventhough we dont look like a team full of freshman.. this early I'm still scared to say "should be a comfortable " Definitely scary to use the phrase should be comfortable with a team full of freshmen. However, this should be a comfortable win. This is the worst team we have played to date, proba...

Re: Dan Shaughnessy

A little fun personal story, for me at least. We were at my brothers high school playoff hoops game against Newton North in I want to say 2009 or 2010 and Shaugnessy was there either covering it or maybe he knew someone with a kid on Newton. Either way I'm there with my dad and I notice him and I sa...

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

Thanks for the synopsis Mike - should be a comfortable W for our guys. Is this part of the Mohegan event or is it just a coincidence that they play at both us and ASU?

Re: KAEO: TJ Weeks

What a terrific role model for these freshmen to have. Carl Pierre is the quintessential UMass recruit and absolutely perfect for this team. TJ obviously has no conscience about shooting - nor should he - and getting up all those shots is only going to help. Love the work ethic.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Someone from East's hometown posted this in the Facebook team page. Crazy that a kid who played so closely with the #5 Overall recruit in the ESPN Top-100 2018 rankings (and a Celtics lottery pick) wasn't recruited at all in HS. Then he goes to a prep school for a year, gets stronger and now he's w...

Re: Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

I like the thought that it is positioning of the press... Should have been fairly easy to find out, if they had 2 guys up front then it was positioning of the press (2-2-1), if they only had 1 then it was diamond (1-2-1-1).

Re: Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

The bright part to me about the last 3 games is that in every game there have been areas that NEED to be improved on... But the team still finds a way to win. The press is only going to get better. We're hardly getting free points from it, maybe 1 or 2 buckets a game, but it speeds up the pace of th...

Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

Work his way back to fitness? He has played all off-season, in the VI games, in the "secret scrimmage" and in the exhibition vs WNE. He's not coming back from an injury. The worry-o-meter is officially pushing into at least the orange, heading towards red.

Re: Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

Northeastern are -1.5 point favorites. No question this will be our toughest test yet. Northeastern is licking their chops to complete the Massachusetts trifecta beating us, BU, and Harvard. Moved to -2 around midnight and NE is currently -2.5. Definitely going to be our toughest matchup of the OOC...
