Game ½, 2017-18: Springfield exhib (11/3)

Post by MikeUMA » Wed Nov 01, 2017 1:49 pm

Exhibition game versus Springfield College is coming up Friday night at 7 at Mullins.

Not much in the way of details here...
http://umassathletics.com/news/2017/10/ ... llege.aspx
... other than that it's a free admission, and the ladies are playing an exhibition of their own, starting at 4:30.

The official Schedule page says the game will stream on the A10 Network. But if you look on the A10's list of broadcast events, our game isn't listed. Springfield's schedule has a video link for the game that redirects to the A10 Network.

I sent a tweet to UM about it, let's see if they respond.

MM said that Turner-Morris is medically cleared and will play Friday. We now have 8.5 players (I'm counting Frankiln as .5 since he didn't play against Siena.) I also saw that we added another walk-on, but waiting for NCAA clearance. I have not seen any info on who it might be.

I'm glad to hear MM say something about Unique as he's pretty much gone unnoticed thus far. If he can be a significant contributor that's a big plus.

“We have to work on (the zone) a little bit more. It’s a way to steal possessions. It’s a way to change pace,” he said. “In the scrimmage I thought our press was good. It was able to cause some problems. Unique is a problem (for opponents) up there because of his athleticism and his ability to move.

Is this game going to be a free watch or will we need to subscribe to watch?

The video stream is now listed on the events page (as is next week's game vs UML).

From what I see on this page...
http://www.atlantic10.com/liveEvents/liveEvents.dbml
... the games without a label are ours. (More great work there.) But they are marked as Premium, so my guess is they'll need a subscription.

The 4-month UMass subscription is only 30 bucks. That's not terrible. Producing and broadcasting isn't free, it's not reasonable to expect to watch it for free.

Spent $30 bucks this morning and all I'm getting is a message that says flash is not compatible with my browser. WTF?
