vs VCU we were awful when Tre was out. Not sure if it's the same tonight, but probably, and vs a team of Richmond's quality playing in their gym that's a lot to overcome.

Against a team like Richmond, the team can't go on 4 to 5 minute scoring draughts like they tend to do.

These announcers are the worst homers we have had all season long.

Turnovers and lack of O are killing us, melting early.

What a disaster. We are giving up too many open shots and they are shooting over 70%.

With the way we've played offense this could get out of hand.. I mean we had a barn burner at the end of the VCU game and the VCU point total was in the 40's.. think about that.... i think we will have some good moments but a 75-55 loss isn't hard to imagine.

One good thing the announcer did say was that we are a bunch of talented freshmen but Richmond is a talented junior and reds hirt junior team.

They’ve been playing well. I am not going to be discouraged. This game changes nothing other than the fact that it sucks giant moose cock.

I don't know why we continue to press full court. Getting beat on it pretty bad. I shut the sound off so I Don't have to listen to the announcers any more.

It was to be expected but it does put on the pressure for more wins to stay out of the Wednesday round of the a10 tourney. Wednesday's game is the one that really matters. I do wonder if the coaches can do anything at half-time today to change the momentum.

Richmond is really good. Lot of guys that can do do a lot of things. It’s discouraging but given the way we’ve been playing as of late and how good I think Richmond is, especially on offense, not nearly as discouraging as the other blowout losses. We were overmatched by their offense and don’t have the horses to keep pace at the other end.

Hopefully they can get at least one of the last two...a sweep would be great but that’ll be tough.

Saw LaSalle beat SBU today.

Yeah didn’t love the effort but I do think Richmond is the clear #2 team in the A-10 and we were overmatched pretty good.

Now we have to watch who the women play in the opening round of their A 10 game on Tuesday.
