Re: 2020 Recruiting

Don't know much about Gasperini, but like a guy his size who can hit 71% on free throws. He got to the line more last year even with his minutes down a little. Shot 47 3s in his first season, only 7 in his second season and went 0-3 from distance this year (all with poor %s). His minutes per game a...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I’m really hoping the season goes on as planned because I think we’re right in the mix for the #2 team in the league (I think Richmond is #1 until someone else proves otherwise). Richmond seems a clear #1, and to me SLU is a clear #2. SLU returns everybody, gets a great shooter coming off injury ye...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I do not follow Fernandez starting at all. One, he may not be eligible. Two, his stats were worse than the guy just moved out. Three, he may be prone to foot injuries which could limit both his time and effectiveness. Four, and this is my gut feeling, Garcia is just flat out better. Fernandes is a ...

Re: KAEO: Sean East

they'll need Fernandes ready on day 1. Between Sean, Kolton and Buggs, I thought Sean was best and had the most upside, although it's hard to tell given the injuries. Consensus has Fernandes much better than Sean, but you're replacing a guy who shot 40% on 3s and had an excellent assist-to-turnover ...

Re: Which (likely) returning playing will improve his game the most next year (2020-21)? Pick 2

I think Walker and East are leading because those 2 and Tre improved most during the course of this season, but Tre is so advanced it's hard to see him making huge improvements. He had 58 points in the last 2 games, shooting 69% on 3s; can anyone improve on that? I went with Kolton because his offen...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Not sure any of these guys would fill the role of "backup big" but noted as transfers are coming along here are 3 PFs with immediate eligibility, all of who we've played before: 3.3 PF Tomas Murphy JR 6-8 230 Yes Northeastern 3 PF Kevin Marfo RS JR 6-8 245 Yes Quinnipiac (previously GW) 2.7 PF Arnal...

Re: A10 Tournament

^ Dayton got some tests vs top competition, losing to #1 Kansas in OT and to an excellent Colorado team also in OT. Colorado was having a great season until losing their last 5 straight. OTOH, Dayton won their last 20 in a row and was having a truly special season. Would definitely have brought $ to...

Re: Game 32, 2019-20: VCU (3/12, A10 Rd 2)

does the 7-point spread reflect that UMass is much more accustomed to playing before near-empty stands? :wink:

Re: A10 Tournament

Ivy league cancelling must bug Harvard, though, because they finish 10-4 while Yale gets the title at 11-3. Harvard went through a bad stretch early in the Ivy season, losing 3 of 4. They won both vs Yale, clobbering them in the most recent game last week-end. I think these 2 only had 1 common oppon...

Re: 19-20 Season recap

For sure it was/is a good season. Too early to say about next year, given we don't know who will be on the team, what the schedule will be, etc. But optimism for next season is the highest it's been for good reasons, given we just finished the A-10 regular season with our best record in 5 years whil...

Re: Game 30, 2019-20: at La Salle (3/4)

so much for the possibility of playing next Wednesday. most likely finish is a surprising 8th with a rematch vs VCU next Thursday. Tre didn't look like he had his maximum bounce but he played a great game except for a few turnovers. I wonder if he was coached to avoid fouling. Sean contributed great...

Re: Game 30, 2019-20: at La Salle (3/4)

needed a lot of Tre with Preston and Samba both in foul trouble. Keon making a big contribution off the bench, hitting 3s, taking a charge and leading the team in rebounding (??)

Re: A-10 Regular season

I think finishing 11th and playing next Wednesday is very likely, but this pretty cool site says the odds of that are only about 1 in 5.
