I'm glad we won but we won't beat anyone decent if we play like this. I'm not talking about the shooting, we know that there will be cold games and hot games. We were very sloppy and committed a lot of unforced turnovers. We also need to learn how to defend without had-checking.

MM has about a week to work on the mistakes. The Holy Cross game concerns me because of the style they play. Until tonight they had only lost to Providence and Michigan. Harvard beat them by 11 tonight which surprised me a little, but they shot lights out and killed HC on the boards, 40-21.

Lets remember we've played 7 games in 21 days, just getting back from LV. Team now has a week to recoop. Tonight looked like a team a little tired with tired legs and some tired minds. Legs resulted in some poor shooting, especially early and late. Tired minds resulted in sloppy turnovers.

Lets give Quinnipiac some credit, their press slowed us down in the second half and mucked up our half court offense.

Chatman appeared to be hurt or in the dog house as he hardly played in the second half and did not look that into it on the bench.

Love Pierre more and more I watch him. Kid was puking in the back hallways and as soon as he walked onto the bench he was cheering on his teammates and continued to do so throughout the 2nd half. Also, gutted it out with a some big plays.

Scooper, which syllable you accentuating?

I'm going with 87, he's pretty much right on most things
Emphasis on the first syllable, Quinn’ ih pee yack.
Given that LS71 grew up up the road from Quinny I was inclined to Google it. Sure seems like the emphasis is on the Pee. I do know that every time someone on the radio mentions one of their polls (a case study in how to make your University relevant - become a pre-eminent pollster) they emphasize the Pee.

Regarding Chatman, he limped off the court early in the second half and never returned.

^Best Post EVER!!!

Yeah, I friggin LOVE Carl Pierre! He's only a sophomore and is just going to get better. Of course, I am a little biased as I was also born in the greatest god damn city on this planet - BOSTON!!!

Nice to see Turner-Morris getting time out there. I think he will continue to improve and we will need him this year and down the road.

Will we ever see Unique McLean again??? Something tells me he has LIU Brooklyn written all over his face. To go from regular 30 mpg to regular DNP has got to be tough.

Chatman looked like he had a bit of a limp. Probably needs some rest.

Anyone know if the transfer from Vandy has eligibility beyond this season or if he just has the second half of this year?

UMass is getting nothing out of big players Chatman, Diallo, and KTM. Bad sign for the future.
Not sure what should be expected. Other than tonight and the foul problems against Nevada, Chatman has looked pretty good. And, KTM is slowly getting more meaningful time. I also like that Diallo is at least seeing the floor and getting some experience. I think McCall is handling each well and their contributions are likely to increase over the course of the season.
Yeah, I agree. Diallo has been pretty good defensively, a little passive on the offensive end, but I think it's natural for a freshman. I like him, pretty athletic kid. I think Chatman and Wood have looked good. Both are at positions of need right now so they're more noticeable. But I like this class of freshman a lot. KTM is coming around. Not a ton of minutes, but he's getting better. Just keep improving

Love to see more KTM. Has a great motor and cannot be pushed around in the paint.

Took awhile to get things going but once they did I thought they looked pretty good. They got it up to 21 at one point, which was nice, but they weren't really able to put the nail in the coffin at any point. I liked that they kept them at bay.

Need to clean up the end though... that reminded me of what we witnessed over the last many years... need to close out these games.

I've been working in the Hartford area for a long time. Most often I hear people pronounce it with the emphasis on the first syllable. I found this on You Tube. It seems like there's a subtle emphasis on the pee:

Game could have gone better but I won’t cry over a win. Disappointed to hear about the people yelling at Pip and Laurent during the anthem to take their hoodies off and calling them pieces of crap though.
Yeah what was that about? I saw John Walfish mention it on twitter and thought that it was just a few jackasses, but it's gaining some momentum on twitter now. Even Ryan Bamford is commenting about it. Really really bad look. Tough to have 70% of your gym empty, and then the ones that do show up are being idiots to the players. I know it's just the vocal minority, but unfortunately the kids pay attention to this stuff. Can someone who was there weigh in more about it, or is that basically the gist of it?

I watched the replay at midnight. You certainly get different thoughts than being there, maybe influenced by the announcers. I thought the announcers did a good job. They have done enough games that they know the team and even made a point of showing/talking about Randall West.

Here's my take after watching it live and on TV. Our D was very good in the first half, but Q helped by missing shots after starting 3/7 from 3. We had open threes in the first half but 50% were air balls. Wow! We were sloppy with the ball for the entire game, but it was magnified when Q starting making baskets and drawing fouls at the end of the game. Q was also sloppy with the ball which bailed us out a few times.

Holloway, LP and Laurent had overall good games. A lot more good than bad.
Clergeot, Wood, Pierre and Cobb were about 50/50, equally good stretches and bad stretches.
Not much help from Chatman, Diallo and KTM. They hustled, but didn't accomplish much.

^^ During the National Anthem, LP and Laurent kept their hoodies on. One or two (I don't think it was more than that) "fans" yelled at them to take down their hoodies and respect the flag. They also yelled some other things that I couldn't make out but along the lines of "go play somewhere else if you don't like America" or something like that.

Neither the players or MM reacted to the yelling and it was back to business once the game started. This will live on for a while and I expect an official response from the AD or MM regarding this to try to put it to bed. We can't have these guys yelling at every game.

I'm sure others may have heard more than I did so feel free to comment.
