Re: 2020-21 Season

Another good article from the gazette provides a lot of context for gasperini struggles early on https://t.co/Kb1T2SD3lt

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

This is the thing about McCall that makes me so damn frustrated. As soon as Navarro gives up the ball you face guard him and deny a pass back to him. Game over. If he brings the ball up and doesn't pass you double him and force him to pass and then you face guard him and deny a pass back to him. Ga...

Re: KAEO: Preston Santos

^ The point may be that he is not in the UMass people finder, so I am guessing that he can't practice/play until 2/1 because he is not enrolled. it's 2/2 - any Preston sightings? He's in the People Finder as of 8:51am EST on 2/2/2021. McCall said he finished the fall semester at home earlier in the...

Eligibility doesn’t matter this season

Re: KAEO: Preston Santos

Fwiw he shared the Fordham highlights on his insta story and it isn’t the first time he shared his teammates or other Umass basketball related stuff which points to me that he is still interested in the program

Re: Game 8, 2020-21: at Fordham (1/17)

^ It's painful to watch Gasperini on the court. I don't know if he's been like this his entire college career, but he really just doesn't belong out there. We'd be better off with DeGray at the 5 and/or go to a zone when Tre needs rest. He hasn’t dude scored 15 vs George mason but he got Covid and ...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Currently we have 3 spots to fill as I believe if Pierre and gasperini choose to return the spots don’t count

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

I would go with who I thought they should have hired the first time around and that is Caputo from Miami however I’m bias a bit here as I’m friends with his brother

Re: Game 6, 2020-21: La Salle (1/9)

I also liked not starting Garcia and Noah together as it prevents both of them from getting early fouls (not an issue today anyway). Also, I agree that the extra size helped. Now the question is "How do we stop Fatts and Sheppard?" I agree also thinks it allows Garcia to come off the benc...

Edit: Toward the end of the clip, we see #2 (back of him) take a lefty jump shot. Preston is #2. Is it possible that's him?
That was Dibaji

Re: 2020-21 Season

Twitter has a whole series of tweets from Nick Lorensen, a writer for "Mid- Major Madness". Comments from McCall, Mitchell and Pierre on A10 Media Day. This one caught my eye, shocked me and brought a smile to my face. There is no reason for Carl to over-hype this: Nick Lorensen @nlorense...

With this year technically not counting we could have no scholarships left if cp and gasperini decide they want to stay

Re: 2023 Recruiting

We just offered Mackenzie Mgbako from NJ. My first thought is why? He has multiple offers from high major programs and UCLA also offered him yesterday. Do we normally just throw offers out and hope one sticks or do we have some sort of connection with him? https://247sports.com/Player/Mackenzie-Mgb...
