Re: The "Oh, What If" team

.....what ifs for UMass hoops have to note that the 2 players most of us would call UMass's greatest both left before hoped-for (but not expected) senior seasons. Would a UMass team led by senior Julius Erving and featuring Al Skinner, coached by Jack Leaman, be the greatest UMass team of all time?...

Re: CFL

Marken Michel put up some good numbers for Calgary last season and apparently had a nice contract. But he was lured away by the Eagles and is showing them some good things recently.

Re: The "Oh, What If" team

Diverging a bit from the original intent of this thread, but I have often wondered what would have happened if Julius Erving had stayed for his senior year. Teaming up with Al Skinner would have been fantastic to watch.

Re: Season tickets anyone?

Can't imagine UMass alienating the current number of hardcore fans (many of whom are likely doing separate donations to the school anyway). Prove that you can put a good product on the floor, then consider making basketball a premium event. BTW, is Danny proving he can pat his head and rub his belly...

Re: State of the program

To back up LS71, Jack Leaman's eight first-place finishes would have been automatic qualifiers for the NCAAs in today's world. We were rather competitive against solid programs in the NIT.

Re: Vote for Cale for the Hobey Baker

Avs grab home-ice advantage with the game 2 road victory. Makar and Samuel Girard were paired together for about ten minutes which apparently has the fans rather excited. According to the link below, they are being called "Turn and Burn". https://www.milehighhockey.com/2019/4/28/18521797/game-two-co...

18-6 lifetime against Clark. Last game was a couple of weeks after I was born (no, there were no ladders to retrieve the ball from the peach basket) http://umasshoops.com/wiki/doku.php?id=opponent_clark And the picture of the cage above shows the keyhole lane which apparently went away in 1951. http...

Re: Lowe & Harris --- best backcourt combo ever at UMASS?

Oooops. I thought we had picked up a nice point guard and that was the impetus for Tre Wood to skeeedaddle. Is Wood officially gone or can he still be a member of next year's roster?

This old thread was a fun read anyway.

Re: Lowe & Harris --- best backcourt combo ever at UMASS?

Seeing the enthusiasm for our near-term guard combo, I figured I could resurrect this thread from a decade ago to show what they are up against. Seems to me we had a pretty good guard combo about six years ago that would have gotten some discussion in this thread.

I think if any of us were asked to name the three best coaches of the past 50 years, we'd all come up with Leaman, Calipari, and Ford. Like the numbers say.
So, who is number four? Bruiser at 54.4% or DK at 53.1% :twisted: :twisted:

What if a coach tells all the players that he loves them like sons and then doesn’t show up for the press conference where they are announcing him as the next coach? How does that one rank?
When you comin home, dad, I don't know when. But we'll get together then....

Where are they this year?

My semi-irregular update look at where the former UMass players are now playing: https://basketball.usbasket.com/team/USA/University-of-Massachusetts/245?Page=4 Sorting on the year column (next to nationality) makes it easier to read. Amazingly, Stephane Lasme is still lacing them up, although with ...
