Really nice win. Pretty limited offensively out there but they competed defensively. That’s the biggest thing. And they didn’t turn it over much and did great on the glass.

Credit to the starting five for their efforts. And then nice to see Chatman and Tre get some minutes. Weren’t always great minutes but they did some good things. I thought McCall did a good coaching job today.

The trick is competing like this and protecting the ball like this consistently. And as we’ve seen this year that seems to be a hard trick for this team to master.

Hopefully it’s a start though (feel like I’ve said that 87 times already this year - that’s the concerning part.)

Great effort today, I hope MM doesn’t back off.

Pierre showed strong leadership today, I watched as he interjected between Baptiste and Laurent who appeared to have a disagreement of some kind. Fun watching him develop his game.

Diallo came to play today, hopefully he is getting more confident with the leg.

McLean does the things no one else wants to do.

Keon played much more under control today.

Baptiste needs a mean streak, but all in all a good game.

Keep it going next week fellas!

Love how MM is trying to get the crowd to it's feet. Problem is there is only 500 people there.
The crowds have been shit recently, but this one was pretty decent. Official attendance was 3,878 and people were getting involved.

One of the most exciting games in the McCall era that I've been to. So glad I ended up going.

you obviously weren't there! One of the largest crowds of the season - close to if not over 4,000, and loud over the last 4 minutes.

Karl Pierre is a consummate team player. Works to improve his game, unselfish, and someone who will be the cornerstone of this team.

Absolute clown show they are not even in their own locker room. That half seemed to be more about Davidson's lack of playing then Umass. Expect a different second half out of Bob's boys.
I admire your commitment to bashing McCall even when it makes no logical sense.

I dont watch the games anymore but very interesting box score. Is it a coincidence that we played our best without Pipkins? I dont know how MM rotates playing time from game to game but it looks like Laurent, Holloway, Kieran, and Cobb have had their PT greatly reduced. Suprised to see Unique with so many minutes. If it works dont fix it.

Glad to be wrong on this one! Figured it was more than 500, but looked fairly sparse from the few shots they showed of it. Glad they got 4k. Maybe showed the team a little what it can be like if they play hard and win.

Nice to see when got to campus at about 12:45 there was legit traffic. I knew then there would be more than 2K today. I think it was the 2nd largest crowd of the season.

Good win. Funny to see them exiting/entering the court from the old way.

I almost never ...and I mean never complain about officiating in any sport, good teams overcome bad calls but today that taller ref who looked like Lavar Ball was atrocious.

Much bigger than that actually. And it was great when those there actually stood and gave them a boost. I enjoyed it

This was a throwback game to last year. Davidson has a lot of talent but we played hard today, limited mistakes, and offensively moved the ball well. Its clear to see who MM thinks are the hard workers on this team, and I love how he stuck with them. Thought Sy and Tre also filled in well. They played for the front of the jersey today, and MM was as intense as ever.

And I agree, the officiating sucked. It was like they gave Davidson every opportunity they could to win it.

Nice to see Unique get ample time. Kid gives more than it looks on the stat sheet. Constantly on the boards and under control.

Keon had his best game, and not just for that final big 3. Under control, defensively went after it, and got others involved

I love what Baptiste brings. That big, inside defensive presence is huge

CP12, what can you say. Kid was money today.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Samba is a player. Get this kid as much pt as possible and get his confidence high because he can do some things out there. Rebounds well, defends well, incredibly unselfish. Type of player we need

Nice job all around. Thoroughly enjoyed this game
