Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

Everyone needs to take a long, deep breath....Patience, folks. Um, yeah, have you read the last page or two of posts? Nobody's panicking or calling for the coach to be fired. What I'm reading is actually some civil discussion on the current state and future of the program. I'm seeing things like "k...

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

To be clear, I'm not calling for McCall's head, not even close. What I'm saying is that the losing has to start taking a toll on these guys, and of course losing Sy and TJ hurts, but we still have talented players out there. What I'd like to start seeing from McCall is winning a couple road games an...

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

The jury is still out on McCall, but I think most here like the talent and potential on this team. The question for me is how much longer can they take a beating and still keep their heads up and stay invested on a day-to-day basis. At some point, they need to start winning games. I look around the ...

Re: KAEO: Samba Diallo

He definitely wore the mismatched sneaks at the Mohegan tournament. I remember talking to a couple UVA guys about it.

Re: KAEO: Samba Diallo

I think I heard somewhere that it's to remind him of his journey from his home in Senegal to the USA. Not sure why it's a home/road thing though.

Re: Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

Pretty much what I expected. Facing the 15th ranked team, favorite for A10 player of the year (and maybe national), and in their sold out gym, never had a chance. Move on and see what we can do against a good St Bonaventure team in Rochester, not Olean.

Re: Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

And maybe McCall gets these guys to play all out (or stick with the few who will) for the rest of the game as Dayton takes their foot off the gas pedal.

Re: Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

Some on this board have called out Walfish for slightly less than stellar reporting, which I've been mum on, but today's game preview has a major whiff in it. https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-faces-tough-test-vs-No-15-Dayton-31914234 FAB FRESHMEN — UMass has relied heavily on its freshmen.

I wonder how many highlight reel alley-oops Toppin is gonna get against our press.
Ugh, thanks a lot. I hadn't even thought about that until now. Can't wait!

Re: Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

I certainly don't expect a win, and I'll be pleased with anything remotely competitive as Dayton is on another level this year and they have a tremendous home court advantage. I am, however, reminded of McCall's first year and the game they played up there. Holloway and CJ Anderson were suspended, t...

Re: Game 15, 2019-20: La Salle (1/8)

I'm pleased with the win, and although it didn't look great down the stretch, these guys are figuring out how to put a win together. I'll give them credit for making their free throws down the stretch, maintaining that two+ possession lead, and not giving LaSalle a chance to tie or take the lead. Th...

Wonderful. I'm glad Carl got his 1000th (plus) in a win. Winning feels better than losing

Re: Game 15, 2019-20: La Salle (1/8)

Add another 3 for Pierre. 1 to go.

Strike that one as well, what a way to get 1000 for the Captain!

Re: Game 15, 2019-20: La Salle (1/8)

Mentioned by Capezona in his player thread, but we're on 1000 point watch tonight. Carl needs 14.

Scratch that, he just got a bucket, 12 to go.
