Game 8, 2018-2019 Quinnipiac 11/28/18

Post by 69MG » Sat Nov 24, 2018 4:52 pm

Not much to say as we should win this easily. I did notice 3 familiar names on their roster and I recall recruiting interest in all 3.

Kevin Marfo - Committed to GW, played 1 year then transferred to Q. Sat out last year and starts for Q this year. 4.3 points, 10.7 boards.
Travis Atson - Committed to Tulsa, played 1 year then transferred to Q. Sat out last year and starts for Q this year. 9.7 points, 3.7 boards.
Matt Balanc - Freshman at Q. Has not played yet.

Yeah, we should beat them easily. Just like last year.

Good point. Check out the FT stats in the box score. Also, LP and Pierre. That won't happen again.

If they play with the same energy Wednesday that they did in Vegas, UMass will win easily.

If they played like they did the week before, it’ll be up for grabs.

I’m looking forward to the game!

Don't underestimate Quinnipiac who is coached by Baker Dunleavy, in his 2nd season. He has some impressive young talent. They are better than Lowell, UNH, Howard and APB. Should contend to win the MAAC.
Hire Matt McCall!

Double-header on Wednesday - The women play North Dakota at 4:30 pm. I don't remember if it was at North Dakota or at North Dakota State, but last season's game against one of those two teams included fisticuffs.

The poster says the men's game starts at 7:30 pm, but the UMass Athletics web site has the game starting at 7 pm.

NESN has the game listed at 7 pm

Sounds like McCall seems to think the team may have turned.a bit of a corner since the Howard debacle. We shall see. They should drub them pretty good if they really have found the switch. Q beat that awful UNH team by six. That’s not good.

I think 12 is a good number... This has backdoor cover written all over it as UMass has shown a propensity for letting their foot off the gas when the game is no longer in doubt - both in wins and losses.

^
although in last week's game vs. So. Illinois, they kept the foot on the gas and turned the 20-pt. lead into 30, never really letting up. Depth helps with this.

Right... SIU ended the game on a 10-1 run, Nevada a 12-3 run. They did a good job closing out UNH and APB though. Just saying a 20 point win with 2 min left can still wind up a 10-12 point win by end of game. Not really uncommon among other schools as well so probably shouldn't have made it sound like a UMass specific thing - more something that stood out to me in both Vegas games.

Has anyone noticed if ESPN+ still has the game if it's also being broadcast on NESN? I'm going to the HC v Harvard game and I want to watch the UMass game on ESPN+ replay, it usually is available immediately after the game.

I'd love to be in Amherst, but I can't get out there during the work week.

^ I'd have to imagine it is. If you're paying $4.99/mo for it, they won't take in to account the fact that it's being televised somewhere else.
