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

Very curious why most top teams in the league got 3 games this week and we only got 2, especially with them moving the Richmond game on us.

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

Well this is a wake up call facing a top team coming off the break. They’ll at least know what level of play it will take to contend in the tourney. Need to finish strong and then be more competitive with SLU

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

I’m glad they took Mark G out even if Tre is still on the bench, he is killing them on D. Not playing bad other than some blown coverages on D, Richmond is hot and the refs aren’t doing us any favors. Richmond is a great offensive team.

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

No Tre or Noah in the starting lineup. Maybe our secondary guys get a good feel for the game early on and it turns into a positive. Hope they aren’t on a low minutes restriction tho.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

If Tre is going to play in the league, I think it would have to be as a floor spacing 4 man. Off the top of my head I'm thinking of Paul Millsap as someone with similar size and ability as Tre who made a career in the NBA (Millsap is a better rebounder and defender but Tre has more raw offensive abi...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

I did see some speculation that the league wanted at least a week from the last regular season game to the tourney as an extra COVID precaution. I believe the rationale would be a sort of week long quarantine prior to the tourney begins to reduce the chances that a team comes in with a positive case...

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

Agree with a lot of the comments that logistically they definitely could separate the team from the rest of the students and continue the season, and I’m sure Bamford and McCall would be instituting that if they were able, but that decision has to be above their pay grade. If they did it for MBB the...

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

It sucks but the team quarantining individually for 2 weeks is obviously more of a safety precaution (in theory) than continuing to practice and play. Unless they moved the team off campus completely, but they need to keep up the “student athlete” thing so I guess that’s not an option. If covid is r...

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

Really bummed for the team. Not too surprised though, this was probably inevitable when they brought back all the students to campus. There’s an article in the collegian today about how that frat by Isenberg has already had 2 packed parties that were super spreaders. These guys work their asses off ...

Re: Game 11, 2020-21: @ Rhode Island (2/6)

Loved the short handed effort and toughness but absolutely brutal end to the half. Those are the losing plays UMass needs to stop making to take the next step.

Here’s MM’s chance to hold onto a 2nd half lead in a big game.

Re: Game 11, 2020-21: @ Rhode Island (2/6)

Definitely going to need a great shooting night to have a chance. If there’s ever a time for CP to get hot, it’s now. I will say tho, all the pressure is on URI now. They are having a tough season, coming off a brutal loss, and will be looking to get revenge on their rival who’s playing without thei...

Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

Losing sucks way more than winning feels good. Lol We should know haha. We're not even the worst A10 fanbase in New England for this. Sometimes I'll check out the URI board after they have a bad loss, and man do they get hateful. At each other's throats, personal attacks, just downright miserable. ...

Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

I agree with the above, TJ needs more playing time as the season goes on, and those minutes will probably have to come out of Carl's. If Carl isn't hitting the 3, he's not a guy that should be getting huge minutes on a top-tier A10 team. And I think the D has been good lately and again in the Fordha...

Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

Couple thoughts... - Great game from Mark G. He did exactly what he needed to do, and they likely lose that game without him - JG has got a lot of talent but he hasn't figured out the college game yet. If the game slows down for him a little he'll be an excellent A10 player. - I thought the effort a...
