Re: Game 18, 2019-20: George Washington (1/18)

Coach McCall officially needs to win me back at this point.

Re: Game 18, 2019-20: George Washington (1/18)

Obviously game 5 of the season is never a “must-win,” but this is one of the ones that we really do have to win if we want to realize our dreams of getting out of the Wednesday game in Brooklyn. The La Salle game (check), this one, St. Joe’s and Mason at home are maybe the only games where we will b...

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: vs St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

It’s also a game where we need our secondary scorers to show up. They are good enough in prep and on defense to slow down Tre, Sean, and Carl. Guys like Samba, Keon, and Dibaji will need to capitalize on their open looks.

Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

Ready to move on from the Dayton game and set sights on this matchup with the Bonnies in Rochester. Even though it’s not at the RC, it should still be a very tough environment with ~90% Bonnies fans. All things considered though, this is a winnable game. Bona is 112 on Kenpom while we clock in at 17...

Re: Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

I might have Samba guard Obi primarily, though we will obviously double often. With his leaping and rebounding ability, he is the closest thing that we have to an Obi of our own. I think he would have the best shot at preventing offensive rebounds and monster put-back dunks. He’s also fast enough to...

Game 16, 2019-20: at Dayton (1/11)

Going to be a tough one to say the least. We will probably be something like fifteen-point dogs and I’m thinking we should be proud if we can keep it single digits. There is no way around the fact that the Flyers are just really, really good right now. They are 12-2 with their losses coming against ...

Re: Game 15, 2019-20: La Salle (1/08)

If we play as hard as we did against Saint Louis, we should be okay unless they just can’t miss or something. I think the overall attitude of these players are good enough to keep us focused on business.

Early line is Akron by 9.
Akron was -9 against us a few months ago and that worked out perfectly fine

Re: Game 13, 2019-20: at Akron (12/30)

Well said. If I had to guess the line it would probably be Zips -6.5, but if we limit turnovers and hit 3’s, it’s not much less than a 50/50 game.

Re: Game 13, 2019-20: at Akron (12/30)

I think this one could go either way but I am not going to expect a win vs. a solid team on the road. They need to show me some road toughness before I can do that. I welcome that happening with open arms, but since we are where we are: Zips by 4.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Seems kind of like Sy + a good handle from the videos that I watched. I would feel a lot more comfortable if we had this kid so it isn’t just Tre, Dibaji, and Samba in the front court next season. That still wouldn’t be an outstanding group as far as rebounding and interior D but it can be good enou...

Re: 2019-20 season

Fair enough to the last two comments - but I stand by what I said about we should win three of the home games with La Salle, GW, Joe’s, Duquesne, the games at Mason and Bona are very winnable - neither team is great they are both probably finishing in the 5th-8th range - and then I’ll be a realist a...

Re: 2019-20 season

^^^ I said we may look like that year in terms of the number of bodies. Said nothing about talent. If this team wins 6 games in the A10, it will be a successful season, next year will be huge for coach McCall. I guess I’m just not as down on us as you are overall. I think we could absolutely win 8 ...

Re: 2019-20 season

Wow...this season appears to be rapidly disintegrating. Chatman gone, buggs out for season, Mitchell still out, still no decision from NCAA on walker, and TJ’s illness/injury sounding worse and more serious by the minute. Might be time to lower the win projection from 13 to 10/11. We may soon look ...
