Re: KAEO: Sean East

Its a good program but MVC is lucky if it is more than a 1 bid league Also goes from a really big public school in terms of enrollment (30K ) to a small private school (5K) which may be what he wanted as well. And the MVC has been pretty much a one-bid conference. A10 isn't way better but of the tw...

Re: 19-20 Season recap

14-17 with some very winnable games that were losses.They played their best basketball down the stretch which has not been said in like over a decade. Each season you can do this exercise but their record could easily been 18-13. Four losses either came in OT (StL/Yale) or lost in the final minutes ...

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

He was actually at UMass for four years, he redshirted his first year and transferred as a grad student for his last year of eligibility. During the VCU game he sat in front of us behind the UMass bench and it didn't appear he was paying close attention to the game. He spent time talking to other pe...

Even with an injury redshirt year, if Buggs transferred out he would have to sit another year, right?
yes.

He could prob apply for a waiver and have a solid case to play elsewhere next season.... should he transfer. And we know the NCAA would give him a speedy decision.

Re: Game 28, 2019-20: VCU (2/26)

Great win last night. This might be the game we look back on as the game that took them to the next step and the last time we see only 2,462 at a home game in a while. I am not on to piss about officiating but the game seemed to be officiated in an odd way. Esp the one referee, Leslie Jones who just...

Re: 2019-20 season

^ If we beat VCU, there is an outside chance we could jump them since we would have the tiebreaker. They play GW and Duq. at home and play at Richmond. What are the chances of them losing 2 of them? Of course, we need to take care of business on Wednesday. That's a lot of optimistic speculation. A ...

Re: Game 27, 2019-20: at Fordham (2/22)

They lost last week VS Dayton in a game they played pretty good... they won today in a game that was ugly... take the ugly wins all day over pretty losses.

Re: Serious Question

Here's a serious question. When was the last time we saw this team playing better at the end of the conference schedule than at the beginning? Starting with Duquesne, we have played well in 6 games and only had 1 clunker (Davidson). Now we just have to learn from yesterday on how to close out games...

Re: Serious Question

I'm hanging my hat on their are a young team, only one senior who is a role player that gets about 10 min a game. Their freshman and sophomores play a ton so getting the experience this season will help next season and beyond. It is the first full year McCall has had all his own players so allowing ...

No love from ESPN 'experts' but Umass is at least part of their top games of the weekend.

Re: 2019-20 season

Harvard odds seem too low. Only a 6% better odds of beating Harvard than Virginia? I'd put the Harvard game at worst in the 30-40% range.

Re: KAEO: Randall West

Did he play three years ago right away after they added him to the team? Or did he get a few practices in?
