Hanging around but I never have a good feeling when you get good offensive nights from your best offensive players and are still losing. No one else brought a thing on offense.

Exactly.. this is why this team is flawed.. obviously we are missing TJ but he need an upgrade in a few other spots

Welp whaddya know...another ugly win. I’ll take all of them I can get. Don’t think that’s a vintage VCU team especially given their health but man these kids played hard. Got just enough from dudes not named Carl and Tre. Also stayed pretty poised.

Nice win.

I'll take them all at this point. This team wouldn't have won this game last year. Great to beat VCU no matter what they are like. Rising in the standings!

We are a reliable 3rd scorer from being really good team and taking that next step.

If I hadn't watched the game and you told me Diallo, Santos and Walker would get zero points (until 2 at the end of the game) I would have said we'd lose by 25. Great win UMass! Keep it going!

Obviously this goes off track, but to that point here's the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjPu1GTm-p8


Gordon was in his jock trying to prevent him from getting the ball, but once he did he backed off. Then he was a step short and Sampson and Put's help D was atrocious. Failure on so many levels with that play.



EDIT: You bastards... ok I went and looked. They win that they are 11-5 in conference and the 3rd seed (I think... tie breaker in their favor over GW and they split with St. Joes). First game ends up being on Friday instead of Thursday and they play the winner of URI-Dayton (Dayton would have fallen to the 6th seed). God damn it.
Not to bring the thread back off topic especially after a nice win, but I stumbled upon that video a few weeks ago and it frustrated the hell out of me. What was Putney doing? He didn't contest at all.

I honestly don’t know what an ugly win is. I don’t. Never have. Can someone explain? Serious question. Do teams in the NBA win, say, pretty because they score lots of points or hit a higher percentage of shots?

More importantly, have we beat a single decent team this year? Seems like every win has been against a team that “doesn’t impress me” or is not as good as previous years etc. A pattern to be sure. Poor urine just escaped with a win at Fordham after we won ugly and failed to dominate that same shitty team.

College hoops, so confusing.

Great to beat a team that's given us so much grief over the years, and super to rise in the standings. Excellent games by Tre and Carl prove to be enough. Off nights from Dibaji and Preston, but enough contributions from Sean and Keon to get the W. When was the last time we saw a 3-game win streak in conference? Must be 100% out of the tournament's Wednesday play in game now.
