Re: Game 8, 2019-20: at Rutgers (11/29)

I'm curious to see how effective we are on the defensive end. This is the first game in which we are playing a decidedly better but beatable opponent that we've had time to prepare for (I don't really count UVA as beatable and we only had a couple of hours for Saint John's). Let's see what Bergeron'...

Re: Game 5, 2019-20: Rider (11/20)

^ That's one thing that I really like about this team: they don't seem like the type to putz around with anybody. I thought CCSU might beat the spread by virtue of playing harder than us - obviously not the case. They are humble, they are competitive, and they know that they haven't earned anything ...

Re: KAEO: Dibaji Walker

I know a lot of folks are really high on Dibaji and think he can step in and be one of our best players. I'm not going to speculate on that. All I will say is that if he can give us even 6 or 7 points, make the press better, get a momentum put-back dunk or block or 2 per game and shoot a decent 33-3...

Re: 2019-20 season

We shouldn’t forget how uncomfortably close some of the recent exhibitions have been. Wouldn’t have expected them to be playing very clean in their first half ever. Let’s just make sure we have the energy for Lowell. We’re more talented but we definitely can’t coast around.

Re: 2019-20 season

I will reserve my comments on this season until I see the team play about 8 games. Too many unknown quantities, in my opinion, until I get to see the team play. Of course I will get to watch them at Davidson on Feb 1st. Let's see how they react when they lose a stupid game or two that they shouldn'...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I’ve interacted with Kevin Sweeney a lot on twitter and he really knows what he’s talking about and is not often wrong in his evals. Him calling Garcia the “heist of the 2020 class” means more to me than if he had been a 4-star player with P5 offers. Even if top-75 or whatever people have been sayin...

Re: 2019-20 season

I also got a little more excited about Dibaji Walker. I think I might have been sleeping on him a bit too much. If he is eligible this year I think Marty Sage's 2-2.5 wins is right on. Can't wait for 11/5. I hadn’t been aware he was a great shooter. Tony referred to it as his “greatest strength,” a...

Re: 2019-20 season

Dibaji just posted his pics from the team photo shoot on his Instagram with a caption of “Year 2 of 4.” Hope that means he knows he will play. I figure we’ll have an answer in a few days at the most with the season being so close.

2019-2020 Prediction Thread

I liked what Eldon came up with last year for predictions about the season, so I figured it’d be fun to do it again this year but with some of my own categories: Total Wins: A10 Record: Best Win: Worst Loss: Starting 5: Most Points p.g.: Most Rebounds p.g.: Most Assists p.g.: Best Freshman Besides T...

Re: 2019-20 season

I think this year will be an improvement because of roster cohesiveness, a stronger culture of effort, and the fact that Mitchell is an immediate game-changer, but I don’t think we should expect to be truly competitive just yet. I’m not going to write off a top 6-7 finish in the A10 standings, but I...

From the Berkshire Eagle: https://www.berkshireeagle.com/stories/mccall-feeling-different-energy-level-in-his-umass-basketball-program,586651 This sentence from the article doesn't make sense to me.

About time we did “Massachusetts.” Simple, clean, and handsome. Looking back at the grey ones with sleeves in that video made me want to throw up lol
