I would not be surprised if they do get blown out somewhere along the way. We are going to see a lot of zone in the A 10 games so if we have another game where we go like 2 for 20 or worse on 3's that will happen. As several have mentioned the next streach of six game can be rather tough. I will be happy with a 3 - 3 outcome, any more wins can be considered a bonus.

Some one of you guys can answer this for me. The last time I went to a game at least almost two years ago there were tables on the home season ticket side for the media people and even part ways behind the basket on the north side. This year I have noticed no tables and a bunch of people sitting in chairs almost court side. Has the program got that bad that the media don't cover us anymore? I doubt that so where do the media sit these days?

One other thing I noticed in last nights game. We had a male cheerleader. From when I started going to the FB games back in the mid 60's there always were male cheerleaders and then when the present coach took over she did away with the guys. Are guys going to join the cheerleaders now? A lot of college teams have mixed cheering squads.

In addition to that location go to the athletic site and click on BB. When that comes up on the top there is a TAB labeled more. Click on that and you can get all of the info from the very first BB season. The only thing is I clicked on the STATS and it could not find the older info.

Also, Mike and co. keep an excellent database of player stats on the site we're currently using: http://umasshoops.com/wiki/doku.php?id= ... cs_history

Not sure top three are as far ahead of the rest of the pack as we once thought. However, we could still finish anywhere from 4-10. Depends on injuries, maturity of the frosh and more consistent play from Rashaan and Donte. The upside is huge and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it comes together.

I think UMass is absolutely capable of becoming the fourth best A10 team. The A10 is pretty weak this year and none of the top three (URI,Dayton, VCU) is anything close to dominant.
