Re: KAEO: Sean East

In his twitter post he thanked his teammates and friends for helping him get through the last year and that he doesn't know if he would have made it without them. That immediately got me thinking that he was homesick, or never really felt comfortable in New England, so maybe his transfer was inevita...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Another year in the weight room shouldn't hurt either

Re: KAEO: Sean East

Nobody called Bradley a powerhouse. People have used words like good and strong to describe them. In the last 20 years they've been to the dance 3 times (I'll count this year since they won the conference tourney), and made a Sweet 16 appearance, as well as having seven 20-win seasons. UMass in that...

Wasn't the Bradley gym used in the final scenes of Hoosiers? A classic old school type arena.
Maybe, but my memory is telling me it was the gym at Butler University

Re: KAEO: Sean East

Good for Sean. As others have said, closer to home and Bradley has a really good basketball program. They won the conference tourney the last two seasons and would have been dancing this year if not for the shut down.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I think this whole discussion about Gasperini is kind of hilarious. What we needed was a backup center to give Tre a breather. What we got was a backup center to give Tre a breather. At the very least, he's 6'10" and has three years of D1 experience. We saw what Tre could do with Djery as a backup,...

I think you guys are all missing the point: Len did an incredible job formatting that so the columns line up and we can actually read it. Well done Len!

Re: KAEO: Sean East

The problem for Sean was going to be minutes and I’m sure after what he saw what he can do (2 A10 ROW and being one of the best players early on) he didn’t want to end up in an 8-10 minute a night role. Unfortunately there just isn’t a role for him that will keep him happy minutes wise. At PG even ...

Thanks IV. Those that missed it and aren't tuned into the social media side of UMass basketball should watch.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I liked Samba -- he seemed like a great kid and he was a good UMass representative, the kind I want to have at my school. Did he have it all put together on the court? Nope, but there was some potential and I wish it worked out differently. I also like the kids we still have and hope it works out a...

Re: KAEO: Samba Diallo 2018

Best of luck to Samba! That young man had such an interesting journey and was a nice piece to the team-building puzzle. Every team needs a guy like Samba and I'm disappointed we won't have him around. I don't know the circumstances regarding his departure, but this guy has talent and knows how to wo...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I love Carl, but from what TJ showed last year, he might be better than Carl at almost every aspect of the game. Shooting-TJ, playmaking-TJ, rebounding-TJ. Not sure on the defensive but Carl isn’t great on that end. I think Carl’s ideal role is hitting the 3, and we’ve been asking a lot more of him...

Re: Which (likely) returning playing will improve his game the most next year (2020-21)? Pick 2

I could see him as a 6th man instead of a starter in a scenario where Weeks is totally healthy and ready to contribute from day one. With a starting PG (Garcia? Kolton?), Weeks and Pierre, Tre, and McCall loves Diallo (which is fine by the way. Offensively limited, but a bear on defense, can reboun...

Re: Which (likely) returning playing will improve his game the most next year (2020-21)? Pick 2

Santos started the last nine games of the season (when we went 5-4 in conference and were within a questionable call from 6-3). I don't see why he wouldn't start next year. I share your admiration for him and expect him to be a real force this coming season--if there is a coming season. I could see...
