UMass are 10.5 point underdogs.

With the way we’re playing lately, I don’t see why we can’t cover.

How about because they are a veteran talented team with a great coach playing on their home court?

^oh don’t worry, I totally understand why Davidson are heavy favorites. But I think we can keep it close.

Just remembering, they had that quadruple overtime on Wednesday. That changes the balance a little bit.

I don't buy into that too much. These are 19-22 year old kids, I'm sure their legs are just fine after a couple days off.

Just bought our tickets for the game tonight. We will be sitting in section 10 5 rows up. I will be wearing my UMass sweatshirt and hat. Looking to bring home a win

Why are we 11 point underdogs? Because our only road win was a 62-60 victory over Fairfield. I don't know if we can win this one but if we play like we did in the last 2 games we have a chance. We just can't let Grady and JAG go off for 45 or 50 between them and they are certainly capable of this.

I would be very surprised if they pulled off a win. They have played better the last two games, but sustaining it - especially on the road- is a big step up.

This is the game we bust thru and pickup a road win. Balanced scoring, tenacious D, and rebounding from Tre, Samba, Preston, AND Carl bring it home. This is the game they all put it together and play well. Minutemen by 7. :shock:

That doesn’t help. Dude is Super tough and worth picking up a few charges each game.
