Re: Game 15, 2020-21: St. Louis (A10 Rd3)

The two factors of getting blown out by them earlier this week, and then blowing out St Joes so guys should be rested seem to be factors working in our favor. SLU won't have such an easy time with us tomorrow, but they're still a damn good team so I don't know if it's enough to get us over the hump....

Re: Game 14, 2020-21: Saint Joseph's (A10 Rd2 3/4)

I read in the Gazette that the team has received ticket allocations for the game and they've given them all to family members. That is tremendous. What a difficult year for everybody, and the families finally get to see their guys play ball. They should be hyped. I'm hyped. Get the W and keep the li...

Re: Still Confident in McCall?

I voted no, I am not confident in McCall. That comes with a disclaimer though, as I'm not confident in him right now, but as a young coach, I am hopeful that he will improve. I haven't given up on him yet as there have been glimmers that he can coach when backed up against a wall with a shorter rota...

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

New season starts!! lets hope we can string a couple of wins and go out on a good note that will help keep these guys together for next year That's certainly the hope, but after multiple Covid pauses, cancellation due to violent overthrow of our government, scheduling changes, and finishing the reg...

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

Do we see some of the big lineup with Tre at the 4 and Uncle Mark at the 5 to combat their physicality and control the boards? I'm looking for Ronnie, Cairo, and JG to come out and have a big impact in tonight's game. All three of those dudes are tough and not afraid to mix it up inside.

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

I don't have a lot of good memories as a UMass fan against SLU. Aside from Carl Pierre's "soft as summer rain" game winner last year, SLU has been a bad opponent for us, and really some heart breakers. For a trip down nightmare lane: https://umasshoops.com/wiki/doku.php?id=opponent_st_loui...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

Good call Len. I forgot that the finale against SLU that year cost us a tie for first place. I sincerely hope that the pauses and inconsistency of this season haven't taken the guys focus or heart out of it and they approach Monday and the tourney as hungry as ever. There is a real opportunity here ...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

The only comment I have about last night's game is about Dominguez. I've been pretty down on him this season, questioning his minutes at times, but he was very good last night. A lot of his points came on easy layups from good passes, but he was active and finding those open spots. We see guys stan...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

I'm reading that Richmond's fans and coach are unhappy about the schedule changes. I'm not pleased that this game was moved a day earlier and down there instead of in Amherst. Wondering why Richmond is unhappy. https://www.a10talk.com/spiders-take-on-minutemen/ Right, what exactly do they have to c...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

he's gotta have a feel for who's locked in, who's sucking wind, and how to find and sustain rhythm. I came here to say just this thing. If ever there was a game for McCall to figure out who has it and who doesn't, tonight is the night. He can't keep his favorite players in the game if they look off...

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

I think I saw somewhere that the players have started a petition to let them practice. Being in complete lockdown and not being able to practice is a killer. If anyone has a link to that petition and can share, please do. Being able to workout and practice together would be tremendous before they he...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

^ I'm pretty much over fairness at this point. Regardless of seeding, I'll just be grateful that they're allowed to play in the tournament and hope for the best. If a season ever deserved an asterisk, this is it.
