Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

nice chart from "SBUnfurled" twitter within the Collegian article shows odds for tournament seedings based on tonight's results. A UMass win would give us the #3 seed, which would mean a next game Friday vs the winner of #6 vs the Game 2 winner (see below). #6 can be GMU, Richmond or Dayto...

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

SLU is the first team out in CBS bracketology and "next four out" from Joe Lunardi. Senior Night for them. They'll be super motivated, and looking to not only win but win big. Revenge perhaps since we beat them last time, when Santos and Walker came up big. Of course, neither will play ton...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

without the double bye, advancing to the finals requires playing 4 games in 6 days and winning the last 3 in a row on consecutive days. A win Monday changes it to 3 games in 6 days and just 2 consecutive wins in Richmond. probably about 1 in a million chance either way, but that's the goal.

Re: Game 13, 2020-21: at Saint Louis (3/1)

SLU started their ginormous center (Bell, 6'11" 270 lbs.) with French at the 4, where he proceeded to score the first 8 points of the game before Richmond could try to adjust. And their adjustment only worked because (a) Bell can't go very long, and (b) SLU didn't hit outside shots early so Ric...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

Can't change what happened this year, so lets make this tourney the new starting point and go on a tear. If we're healthy, I believe they can go far can't be 100% healthy because Dibaji is out, and his D was missed @Richmond. I think we always have a chance, though, because there are 7 guys who can...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

St Joe's ran over Dayton, starting the game with a 15-4 lead and scoring 54 in the first half. The weird season gets weirder. Maybe we caught a break not playing the Hawks :shock: and La Salle blows out Duquesne 85-65. I'm starting to think the bottom A-10 teams could be dangerous. Only VCU and Bona...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

I really don’t think we can complain much about the scheduling. After playing St.Louis next week we still did not play St. Bonaventure, Dayton, or VCU. we didn't play St. Joe's or GW either. Of A10 teams, only Fordham is rated lower than those 2. I don't mind the St. Louis game scheduling, even tho...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

I wish Walker was still playing. His D would have helped tonight. we sure missed his D. Tre and Noah looked rusty, and one of those nights for Carl (3 of 13, 0 for 6 on 3s, 1 for 3 FTs) Dyondre becomes the 7th guy to lead the team in scoring this season. A different leading scorer in more than half...

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

Finally game day. I don't expect much, but at least hope we can get the rust off and the injured players show they're fine. Dibaji will be missed (assuming he's out as reported), I'm reading that Richmond's fans and coach are unhappy about the schedule changes. I'm not pleased that this game was mov...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

The league is trying their best to get Richmond into the NCAAs. I caught a little of the GW game yesterday (where they beat URI, furthering the argument that we've only beaten weaker A-10 teams), and the announcer talked about the protocol for return after a pause. I didn't listen closely, but thou...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

But why are they making us play on Tuesday instead of Wednesday? And why are they giving Richmond a free victory with St Joe's? Maybe they're just trying to even things out because our 6-2 record is based on beating some crappy teams. That actually makes sense to me. The league is trying their best...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

^
St. Joe's is a very different team with Daly healthy. Today's result makes the La Salle wins over Richmond and SLU look even worse for those 2, and cements La Salle in the Wednesday tournament games with GW, Fordham and St. Joe's. But I agree it's of little/no consequence

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

St. Joe's game is off. Instead, we get at Richmond Tuesday and at St. Louis Sunday February 28. Kind of got screwed, as Richmond was supposed to be in Amherst and not 1 day after a covid pause. And St. Louis was a home and home, so naturally we go there. Oh, well, mostly I guess we want to play. htt...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

not sure I get this yet, but at a glance it seems that if UMass plays 1 more game in February, we'll be seeded by winning %. If not, it depends on whether all those teams that have played 11 so far get 3 more games in. If we get the St. Joe's game in, we're all but sure to be seeded by win %. I don...
