Re: Game 15, 2020-21: St. Louis (A10 Rd3)

Ronnie went from 0 vs SLU last Monday to be the leading scorer today. Need those early 3s by guys like him. Keep the ball moving and keep up defensive intensity

Re: Game 14, 2020-21: Saint Joseph's (A10 Rd2 3/4)

Just catching up on what's being said, and like many posters I was hoping the first half wasn't a total fluke and this wouldn't be one of those games where the lead gets squandered. Carl took care of that. 3 3s in the first minute of the second half, and that was it. Dibaji played! No wrap on his wr...

Re: Game 14, 2020-21: SJU/LAS (A10 Rd2 3/4)

SJU and LAS both looking pretty good in their first half. lots of different guys hitting 3s. announcers saying they're both finally healthy. I'd feel a lot better about tomorrow if Dibaji was playing

Re: KAEO: Preston Santos

I can't express my best wishes for Preston as well as others have here, but want to add my voice to the chorus supporting him for his courage and what sounds like good decisions to help work things out so far. Lots of people rooting for this fine young man; hope he can know that and hope it helps.

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

^ "What have you done for me lately" mentality. We've owned LaSalle this year. Sure St. Joe's is playing much better but they are still 4-14. 4-14 but in St. Joe's last 3 games, since Ryan Daly's return, they beat Richmond, Dayton and La Salle. Only the Richmond game was close. Our last 2...

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

how much is it that they're freshman? how much covid pauses (which everyone says is way worse for underclassmen)? how much is Coach McCall lack of ...? We should find out a lot more in 3 days, when we'll likely see a red hot St. Joe's team. UMass gets the extra day to prepare and needs that win to h...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

nice chart from "SBUnfurled" twitter within the Collegian article shows odds for tournament seedings based on tonight's results. A UMass win would give us the #3 seed, which would mean a next game Friday vs the winner of #6 vs the Game 2 winner (see below). #6 can be GMU, Richmond or Dayto...

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

SLU is the first team out in CBS bracketology and "next four out" from Joe Lunardi. Senior Night for them. They'll be super motivated, and looking to not only win but win big. Revenge perhaps since we beat them last time, when Santos and Walker came up big. Of course, neither will play ton...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

without the double bye, advancing to the finals requires playing 4 games in 6 days and winning the last 3 in a row on consecutive days. A win Monday changes it to 3 games in 6 days and just 2 consecutive wins in Richmond. probably about 1 in a million chance either way, but that's the goal.

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

SLU started their ginormous center (Bell, 6'11" 270 lbs.) with French at the 4, where he proceeded to score the first 8 points of the game before Richmond could try to adjust. And their adjustment only worked because (a) Bell can't go very long, and (b) SLU didn't hit outside shots early so Ric...

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

Can't change what happened this year, so lets make this tourney the new starting point and go on a tear. If we're healthy, I believe they can go far can't be 100% healthy because Dibaji is out, and his D was missed @Richmond. I think we always have a chance, though, because there are 7 guys who can...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

St Joe's ran over Dayton, starting the game with a 15-4 lead and scoring 54 in the first half. The weird season gets weirder. Maybe we caught a break not playing the Hawks :shock: and La Salle blows out Duquesne 85-65. I'm starting to think the bottom A-10 teams could be dangerous. Only VCU and Bona...

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

I really don’t think we can complain much about the scheduling. After playing St.Louis next week we still did not play St. Bonaventure, Dayton, or VCU. we didn't play St. Joe's or GW either. Of A10 teams, only Fordham is rated lower than those 2. I don't mind the St. Louis game scheduling, even tho...

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

I wish Walker was still playing. His D would have helped tonight. we sure missed his D. Tre and Noah looked rusty, and one of those nights for Carl (3 of 13, 0 for 6 on 3s, 1 for 3 FTs) Dyondre becomes the 7th guy to lead the team in scoring this season. A different leading scorer in more than half...

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

Finally game day. I don't expect much, but at least hope we can get the rust off and the injured players show they're fine. Dibaji will be missed (assuming he's out as reported), I'm reading that Richmond's fans and coach are unhappy about the schedule changes. I'm not pleased that this game was mov...
