Game 13, 2017-18: Maine (12/22)

Post by LS71 » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:39 am

I hope the team isn’t taking Maine as lightly as members of the of this esteemed organization seem to be doing. :shock:

The tip is about 7 1/2 hours away and other then a few posts threatening melt downs if UMass loses...nothing.

The 3-10 Black Bears have only 1 D1 win...that against Quinnipiac.

The building will pretty empty given the weather, time of the game and the fact that students are home for the holidays.

That said, one the post game show after Georgia State, MM said the players aren’t leaving until Saturday, so there’s nothing else for them to do but practice and get ready for today’s game.

I expect a big win for UMass today.

Best wishes to everyone here for the happiest of Holidays!

I'll be making the trip out for this one. Early release helps, but this 4pm situation is terrible.

I'll be there +3. I expect the guys to play angry in this one and that ought to be enough for the win.

Maybe we can snag a few floor seats if the place is empty. They ought to let people sit there if the place is empty

I was let out of work early, so I'll be able to make it. Looking forward to seeing the guys bounce back.

Looking forward to the team looking good while resting Pipkins in the second half.

CJ 8 assists at the half, nice!

If he’s lucky, maybe there’s a couple D2 scouts in the stands and he’ll pick up an offer or two :)

10 assists by CJ. 5 more and he ties the UMass record. 6 3's by Pierre. 2 more and he ties the UMass record.

If you got assists for letting your guy blow by you or be wide open for a shot.. CJ would have about 30 assists.

CJ could have a double-double without scoring a point.
