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

I don't know. There seems to be some preparedness and a gameplan, but it's not often effective, and more concerning, it's almost always run with a real lack of force. At this point, I'm in favor of Tony taking over. McCall doesn't seem to bring much to the table for what he's being paid. What makes...

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

Can see how he lost the team his last year at Chattanooga. Very frustrating to watch him being out coached on a continuous basis. Players must be getting fed up.

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

There have been very few games during McCall’s tenure that I have thought they looked out of focus, flat, and unprepared. Normally there is a talent or experience gap, but the team always has fight in them and you can at least see potential and some semblance of a game plan. I’ve always liked that ...

We are poorly coached, bottom line. Every game that is on tv color analysts seem baffled we remain in this useless press. Dr. Giannini being very polite today.
After the first year with an undermanned team I thought we were in a very good position coaching wise. That’s out the window!!!

We give up an absurd amount of easy baskets, and our defense is not very good. I was hopeful allowing Tony B to work on the defense would improve overall team defense.

Can someone explain the plan to improve it?
Maybe a shot blocker at the end of the press

Richards had 11 rebounds and 2 blocks. He’s a 6’10” center. Not sure if he’s highly recruited.

I don't care how good these guards are. You're not gonna win in the A10 with only two bigs. Plus you're gonna have the problem of guys sitting on the bench who will get no meaningful minutes.
I totally agree!!!

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I believe another big is more important than another guard based on tonight’s game

Re: Game 11, 2019-20: Yale (12/11)

The biggest positive I took from the game was the teams attitude. They never hung their heads or sulked. Buggs even hobbled to the huddle to offer encouragement. I really like this group.

Re: Game 9, 2019-20: South Carolina (12/4)

I love how we all knew going in that these last 4 games were going to be tough on a young team. They play their asses off and never roll over but now we’re doubting them. If this was last years team they would’ve quit and got blown out. This team deserves our patience. As the season goes on they wi...

Re: Game ½, 2019-20: Western New England U (10/29)

There was a lot to like, even before the game started - several players (Weeks, K. Mitchell, East, Diallo) practicing ballhandling at the end of warmups instead of shooting; the team actually doing defensive drills in warmups; and, for us old farts, the whole team wearing the same outfits. In terms...
