Re: 2019-20 season

I really like the way they are playing, but these last 4 are just brutal. VCU may be in a rough patch but the last 3 included at (bubble team) Richmond and at (very good) SLU and home against #3/4 Dayton. They are almost certainly looking at UMass as a game to get back on track. I fear a L. Then we ...

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

One question and one observation: 1) who on the team is going to be driving the ball inside? East is the only guy who has shown the ability to do that at least somewhat consistently and his shot is very hit or miss (more miss that hit for awhile now). You are correct. Fordham had the lane absolutel...

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

I just don’t understand why we hoist up so many 3s and especially early in the possession?!? Rarely is an early 3 a good idea except sometimes in transition. Getting a good look at a 3 is not that hard later in the clock and after trying to get a higher percentage shot. Especially against Fordham, ...

feels like a long time since UMass held an A-10 opponent under 50 points, but it didn't seem like great defense yesterday. Fordham missed open shots, mostly 3s.
I thought the D was good. Those 3s Fordham missed were very deep and low percentage. The Minutemen weren’t giving them much else.

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

I bring it up just to point out how dumb the whole thing is.. it's a non story. TB pisses others off because hes a little intense but most of all successful It is interesting people describe him as intense. Today was the first time I have seen him “live,” but he seemed almost mellow. Maybe he was i...

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

The more I think about the game the more satisfied I am. They could not buy a shot- and Fordham had something to do with that- but they did EVERYTHING else well. Rebounded and defended well, limited turnovers, and hit their FTs. A lot of guys stepped up in different ways. That was a good road win; I...

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

Exactly. It was troubling how some got sucked into that nonsense. Today TB was about as subdued as one could be on the bench. If he is anything like some of us, he is just intense and nervous about the game. He quietly consulted with the players and there were lots of check-ins and head shake acknow...

Did Preston get hurt?
He was limping during timeouts.

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

Samba played great. His steal and dunk was the key play. I liked having Clergeot out there. He brings an edge to the team that is important, particularly in a grind it out game. Looked like Santos might have twisted an ankle or had a minor injury. I don’t think he played the entire second half and h...

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

Shooting way off and these refs kind of suck. Good news is that CP seems in rhythm and there’s no way Tre goes scoreless in second half.

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

I think this game will be a good barometer for really just how much we’ve grown up as a team and how much McCall has grown up as a coach. Yes, but just picture if they lose, which is quite possible even as Fordham’s record is terrible. All the recent good feelings will evaporate and this place will...

Re: Game 24, 2019-20: George Mason (2/9)

“Carl stopped me, that big-brother role — he (Walker) said, ‘I’m not hearing you, what’s up with your energy?’ I wasn’t talking, I was playing hard but I wasn’t fully engaged into it, almost going through the motions. He said that to me, and he said right then and there, ‘when you get the ball, go t...
