Re: NOLA DUO GONE!!!!!

This ESPN early Top 25 preview says the same thing, about Jarreau possibly testing the waters. I'll admit that I didn't watch any of their games this year, but his numbers on paper don't seem to support he's going to have much of a shot at the big time. Didn't make any of the AAC all-conference tea...

Re: Pat Kelsey

Winthrop won their conference tourney this year and got an automatic big to the NCAA Tournament, which was then cancelled. I find a bit of schadenfreude in that.

Bringing this up today because this is the 3rd anniversary of Kelsey getting cold feet and no-show'ing at our press conference.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

We should be hearing about the A-10 season winners today. Strong chance that Tre will win Rookie of the Year. Our last RotY was Rashaun Freeman was in 2003-04. Comparisons... Freeman won Rookie of the Week 7 times. He did it back-to-back to open and close the season, then 3 scattered throughout. Ray...

Game 32, 2019-20: VCU (3/12, A10 Rd 2)

VCU wrapped up on Friday night, losing at Davidson. They finished 18-13 / 8-10, but over the past month they lost 7 of 8. UM, on the other hand, went 5-3 over our last 8. Thursday at noon at Barclays. NBCSN has the TV and the streaming. https://www.nbcsports.com/tv-listings http://stream.nbcsports.c...

Nice win! I thought Fran Dunphy was excellent as a color commentator.
Knowledgeable, yes.
Exciting, no. He was putting me to sleep.

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

Rhody is getting smoked at home vs Dayton, down 25 with 7 minutes left. Rhody's bubble may have already burst, regardless, according to the First Four Out that's running on CBSSN right now.

Re: A-10 Regular season

69MG: I think you're right. R2L83: I think you got the VCU and UMass winning scenario a little off. We're locked into 8th or 9th. The deciding factors: VCU (8-9) at Davidson (9-8), Friday at 9PM on ESPN2 Rhody (12-5) at UMass (8-9), Saturday at 7PM on NESNplus/ESPN+ A. If Davidson beats VCU: Davidso...

Re: A-10 Regular season

Updated our surrounding teams in the standings, with all the relevant results... 7. Davidson 9-8. Host VCU on Friday, expected win, 10-8 finish. Even if they lose and we win both of ours, they own the tie-breaker vs us, we cannot overtake them. 8. UMass 8-9. We own the VCU tie-breaker. At Rhody on S...

Just looked at their stats. It seems Clifton Moore isn't even listed, so I guess we don't need to worry about him.
No worry because he's out this year under the transfer rule.

Calling tonight a likely loss as a 1 point underdog and -105 on the moneyline is certainly something. It is almost the very definition of a coin flip.
I'd love to be wrong, and I hope I will be. But given our road woes and Djery not being available to give Tre a rest, I don't see it.

Re: Game 30, 2019-20: at La Salle (3/4)

I hope Diallo and Pierre match or exceed their earlier game with LaSalle. It would be great if we could get a big game from Carl again. He scored 20 in the home game vs La Salle. But in the last 10 games, he has single digits in points more often than not. Also, his scoring average at home is doubl...

When do they announce the league awards ? At the tournament in Brooklyn? Absolute lock on ROY!
Last year they announced the season awards on Tuesday 3/12, the day before the tournament started.
