Does anybody know if there's a UMass section, or which side the UMass bench will be on?

Thanks Mike! I was only looking at the Webster Bank Arena seating chart. That's helpful.

So..... ESPN 3 or ESPN plus.....? One you need cable, the other you don't. Not a minor detail for fans wanting to watch the game

I thought ESPN3 was included with cable internet. ESPN+ is $5 a month but also of course requires internet.

I get ESPN3 with xfinity.. so the Fairfield site says ESPN3.. ESPN says the game is on ESPN3 and umass says ESPN+.. so maybe it's both but I know who I'm going to believe.

Either way ESPN + is worth the 5$.

Yep, agree, but doesn't mean one gets ESPN 3, or does it?

UMass are -3.5 point favorites.

+1 that ESPN+ is a must own for a college basketball fan, great deal too.

Where are you getting ESPN3? I don't see that in the umassathletics.com schedule.
ESPN +
I think you need a cable subscription to watch ESPN3 so your standard ESPN+ monthly subscription would not cover it, unless something has changed for this season.
It may have cause I just checked my ESPN+ app and it has us listed tomorrow. Looks like + and/or 3 will have it so that’s good.

They are definitely a team that excels on the defensive end of the floor. They have strong older guards that don’t do much outside shooting but want to muscle their way to the rim. Key to the game is you keep their guards out of the paint and force them into the UMass style of play. They are not equipped for the up and down style that UMass is looking to impose. If the game speeds up UMass by double digits.. if it’s a half court smash mouth defensive battle then it’s anyone’s game

If we bring energy with the press they will be forced to speed it up. Also if the guards want to bull their way into paint there will be a lot of charges if our rotations on point.

^ I would assume we don’t see him return until we hear from the program. Also still no news on walker but seems St Johns and others are starting to put more pressure on the NCAA around Cleveland State
