I agree, I thought he played well in the limited time he got. It appeared that once he realized he wasn't going to get the minutes, he lost his confidence and was a little tentative. Definitely think he had the talent to contribute, they just didn't find a role for him. Too bad, from what someone pr...

Fatigue could also play a part in missed free throws. Someone mentioned that Lap is not a big fan of weight lifting during the season, which I would disagree with. Don't have to work out to bulk up during the season, but lifting will increase stamina & should help with late game/season fatigue.

Interesting, I didn't actually know that scholarships are year to year. I thought once a school offered you a scholarship, you had it until you decided to leave or was kicked off the team. How common a practice is it for a school to not renew a kids scholarship? Makes me wonder if someone like Kyle ...

So you actually get everything paid for, for 5 years per the scholarship?

Was wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. When a player comes in as a partial qualifier and has to sit out a year, but can earn back his 4th year of playing eligibility if they graduate in 4 yrs., do they get 5 years of scholarship?

People will show up if the team plays hard, is consistent, and starts winning. Believe me, this team starts improving, winning some games, and is exciting, the stands will fill up fast. I unfortunately attended UMass at a time when they were the worst Div. 1 program in the country (79-83). You were ...

Guys coming in look to be pretty good players, and I agree that everyone should try to forget about what already happened and look with a little more optimism to the future. The team needs to feel their fans are behind them no matter what, and this can only help the team attitude. Sounds like Freema...

I'd take Delonte West in a heartbeat. The kid plays under control, is aggressive, and plays with good confidence. Just goes to show that player rankings don't always give a true indication of a guy's talent. Heart and passion is often overlooked. Jury still out on Brennan, don't know if I like his g...

UMass96, I appreciate your rethinking your previous comments, and agree that the other board tends to get bogged down in personal insults that seem to have nothing to do with hoop, and sidetracks any good discussion. I am in favor of giving Lappas support for next season even though I agree that the...

Wow, never thought of that choice. I would love to see a guy like Ty Weeks come back. Think it's a great idea to give an alum a crack at a job like that, but it may be too soon for a job like this. I would think that he could use a little more seasoning. However, we have Lappas for now & we need to ...

I wouldn't say everyone on the other board is a "mindless idiot", there are occasionally some good points and discussions.
