Re: Game 1, 2018-2019 UMass-Lowell 11/6/18

Really intrigued to see if Alex Rivera gets early playing time as a freshman for Lowell.. I was personally really high on him when UMass was in the mix at some point.

Re: 2018-2019 Schedule and beyond

^ Nevada also lost by 20 in their game and they will be top 10 most of the year. Different lineups are used things are tested.. and if I remember correctly we used to often win tehee games and then end up having bad years

Re: Season tickets anyone?

I am pretty sure the exhibition will not require tickets. In the past it was free with open seating.

I’m sorry but are we using SienaSoup as a legitimate source. :lol:
Haha bingo.. I wouldn’t look to far into the accuracy of the statement.. also these scrimmages are often used to test & try things out.. Especially with this many new players it will take time to gel

Re: Season tickets anyone?

Re: KAEO: Preston Santos

^^ yup.. I feel like McCall does not go for the “best possible player” to add to his team but however finds the best player that fits what he wants to do within his system

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Hoping we snag this one.. I believe Buffalo & St Bona were also really high on him... if Oats & Schmidt & McCall all believe in his talents he will be a steal

Re: What will we look like in 2018-2019?

McCall did mention at the golf tourney that Keons goal is to be the best perimeter defender in the A10. You cant teach an attitude like that. Reminds me a bit of DG as someone who takes pride in playing D and wants to excel at it.

Re: Djery Baptiste

I believe it’s when first semester is over and he officially graduates he can join UMass. So sometime mid/late December he should be joining the team.. my guess is either Farleigh Dickinson or Georgia will be his first game

Re: Djery Baptiste

Can’t teach size like that.. will be a very physically imposing presence especially in conference. Seems like an amazing kid as well, saw that he won some SEC community awards. And moved to the US when he was 15 from Haiti, taught himself English from listening to George Strait country songs. Also s...

Anyone headed out to Vegas for the two games over Thanksgiving at the Orleans against SIU and hopefully Nevada? I should be in attendance and wanted to see if i'd be seeing any other maroon in the stands.
Yup will def be there, looking forward to that trip and cashing some winning UMass tickets
