Almost got to the 50...

That was one of the crappier opponents I have seen in awhile from talent to coaching.

Hope Buggs is ok...man he’s had some bad luck with his knees.

Baptiste, Keon and Samba were the biggest positives for me.

That was fun to watch after the pain of the other team! Too bad more people don't go to the games.

Great to see that they blow out lesser teams. Really good sign. Great win!

Plenty to comment on in what was one of the biggest blowouts I've ever seen, but I'll just say I hope Buggs is ok. It really didn't look good when he went down and you just hope that regardless of when he comes back, that it isn't too difficult a road back. He came back to the end of the bench for the last couple minutes and Carl sat next to him for the remainder of the game.

Great. They moved it back to 1 and I was watching the FB game waiting for it to cone on at 3:30.

Not really. They did keep it within reach for about 2 1/2 quarters but did not generate any kind of consistent drives to score any TD's. Surprised that West played most of the game.

played a very good game, stayed within themselves vs a crappy team. let's win the next one!
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Kenpom says UVA 3rd, UMass 192nd after the win today. A distance.

This team is loaded! And this is without K. Mitchell, Sy, and Walker.

1. Duh. UVA is the defending national champ. Obviously there is a divide between UMass and UVA
2. After 4 games it might be a little early to put any stock in statistical rankings, don't you think Econ? I'd wager that UMass will finish higher than they are now (not top 100, but higher than 192). In fact, they'll probably rise in rankings just from playing UVA, regardless of outcome. Start paying attention to rankings after the OOC wraps up.

This was the first game this season I got to watch in its entirety. Sure, CCSU, is a woefully bad team but this UMass team is just fun to watch. I'm sure they will get exposed against UVA but I don't care. It's been quite a while since I watched a UMass team beat a weaker opponent so thoroughly. I will remain a fan of the press even if/when it gets exposed by stronger opponents. These kids will get better and better at it as they continue to play it and against a crippled opponent like CCSU they were incredibly effective.

This team has talent and is fun to watch. If they all stay together, they'll be very good in a year or two.
Sean East is a Beast! Love the kid's game. Keon and Djery had excellent games. Djery had several blocks and double digit rebounds. Was hoping they could get him 10 pts for the double double.
Keon carved them up with several nice drives and hit some threes. His best game this year
The E sho, best show in town
