Hoping to see the players really scrapping for the ball on defense and improved rebounding. Scoring will come but we won't be competitive in many games without improving those areas. We have a full bench this year, use it!

We are -15.5 point favorites.

Should be an easy win. Keyword: should.

I expect big things from Pierre and Clergeot tonight. Pierre because he was MIA in the last game, and he seems like the kind of guy that is extremely motivated. Clergeot because he seems like the dirt dog of the bunch. I'm sure McCall will look to him for some intensity tonight. However, if McCall is as good as I think he is, maybe I shouldn't expect big things from any single player, but a real connected team effort.

I will be there +1, so I know there will be at least 2 in attendance tonight.

Hot take.... Pipkins won't be the leading scorer tonight.

Game has been pushed back 15 minutes due to on-court equipment issue. There are ladders behind the basket at which UMass is warming, which is not normal.

But now we have begun.

Missing open look after open look.. guys still seem confused on where the ball needs to go at times. Pierre has the shanks right now.

Apparently we are this bad. On another note the A10 is also really bad this year like last year. I hope both us and the A10 can turn it around.

It would be nice if the Carl Pierre from last year was playing.

literally the only positive thing from the half is that they have 15 team fouls.

Being out of sync is one thing, but routinely losing 50/50 balls is most disappointing. I'm not too concerned because I think we'll see a lot of improvement throughout the season, but it's just sad that the team doesn't look like it has much fight right now.
