Djery, PLEASE flush it everytime you are within 4 ft of the hoop. Smash that f%÷×king rim

I dont really question the Minutemen’s effort, but, damn, Davidson is playing out of their mind. Wow. They seem to have recovered from the 4 OT game quite well.

I meant they'd break out the next road game :oops: :oops: :oops:

Don't think you can press Davidson, they're too well coached

Welp. We took our two steps forward and now we are taking a big one back. Sure Davidson is shooting the shit out of the ball but they are getting whatever they want against us.

Until we get to a point where we are playing defense with any sort of consistency, it’s gonna be like this I think. Whether that consistency comes with experience, better coaching, better players, I have no idea, but shit this can be depressing.

I feel like this program should have a shrink for its fans.

Press or not, nothing worked. That was rough. Hope they give a good effort in the 2nd half and put this one behind them. Davidson is an absolute buzzsaw tonight. I still think the new rotation has us pointed in the right direction.

Right around like maybe 10 minutes in when we switched to zone - when some were playing zone and some man. Tre had to foul I think and you could see him say - what the F are we doing.

You watch these guys and they are good but McCall can't coach to save his life- there is zero spacing on offense, this seems like day 1 stuff.

Amazing to watch a no name well coached team. Is what it is i really like watching any team that plays fundeme tally strong. At our level we should strive for that. Jealous of teams with that character. Watch a lot of basketball and besides Tre we are very medicore. We can claim talent but until they compete for wins we atre just very below average

This is why I don’t like MCCall. No team should be this bad for an entire half. Played zero defense. FYI, in his UMass career, his teams have won THREE road games total and zero A10 road games.

Umass way way overwelmed. Keep hearing how young they are BUT we should never been down 30. Cant keep making excuses. Our talent is not competitive in A10. This group can post all you want about how good our guys are but until they really compete they will continue to be bottom 4 of the league. Part coaching part talent Umass has. Either way very very underwelmming. Sorry!!!!!! Sucks to watch

I always thought defense was a matter of effort and it looked like our kids were trying but seemed lost on defense. Did they not recognize what Davidson was running? Were they not prepared by the coaching staff? Where was the in game coaching adjustment? We got torched by a kid from KOREA! Can't wait for the second half.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.
