Re: Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

The way last couple years have gone I was very worried about the direction of the program. Seeing some of the talent on the court now gives me a lot of hope. It's not difficult to picture Mitchell, East, and Weeks being star players in the A10 in the coming seasons. The fact that McCall was able to ...

Interesting to note, it seems that Roland rarely looks to pass the ball, he's never once had more than 4 assists in a collegiate game, despite playing 30 minutes a game last year.
Doubling him at times sounds like a good idea as well.

Re: Game 2, 2019-20: at Fairfield (Bridgeport, 11/9)

This team has a lot of potential. The way East, Mitchell, Diallo, and Weeks all played today in their first road game is extremely encouraging. The half court offense seems to have a very long way to go. The group doesn't seem to have a clear plan of attack offensively when they're not able to get o...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I found a few more full games of Sean East. In the first one he's playing against Oak Hill Academy and the #1 PG in the 2019 class, Cole Anthony. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2qLJ9HmAyo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TI0r5k2JMM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tMYpR3UG10 There is enough here ...

Re: Should McCall be given a third year

The real question isn't "should be given a 3rd year?" Of course he should. Mostly because he deserves an opportunity to do the job (UMass was never going to be "fixed" in 2 seasons) and financially it makes no sense to remove him. The better question is what expectations are there for him in year 3?...

Re: State of the program

Hopefully Pitino is still toiling away in Greece at this time next year.

He might be our only hope of putting a decent product on the floor at this point.

also if you saw that play, Pierre broke for the corner before Clergot or whoever was inbounding the ball had the ball in his hands...the ref was still holding it so why Pierre broke so soon is the question...once he did that the play that was drawn up was over.
Great coaching! :roll:

Re: Game 32, 2018-19: vs GW (3/13, A10 First Round)

How do we call timeout in a tie game with 6.5 seconds left (after inbounding with near 11 seconds left) and then come out of the timeout with 0 passes and a 30 foot fadeaway 3? From the coaching on down this season, the performances were pitiful and embarrassing. I sincerely hope the program can at ...

Re: State of the program

Is there anything to look forward to with UMass Basketball right now? What should I be clinging to for 2019-20?

The facilities are nice. The school is good and beginning to be recognized as such.

Neither of those things make the basketball team watchable though.

Re: Game 28, 2018-19: Dayton (2/26)

This UMass team is just so far away from where we all want it to be.

I've decided I'm going to have blind faith that McCall can do something- anything- to make this team better next year. If not, we probably have to reboot again. :(

UMass should fire McCall and try to lure Pitino home.

AM I RIGHT??

Re: Game 23, 2018-19: Fordham (2/6)

i think that's pretty much a given. I just hope we keep the expectations high, that next year he needs to do some significant winning to stay on. I don't want more excuses that the transfers didn't work out, and if he loses some players he's starting over again, needs 2-3 years to get his new team ...
