Happy to get another road win. They cut down on turnovers and shot pretty well outside of CP. Good to see East get his groove back a little bit.

I know Tre isn’t shooting a great % from three but his shot looks soft and he seems to have a lot of them rim out.

Very nice win. Hostile environment with no breaks from the refs, it was still never in doubt IMO. This year they’ve firmly separated themselves from the dregs of the league, and are probably in the back of the “middle of the pack”.

I expect they will be hanging around the 4-5 spot next year in conference.

Great to get another road win. "Just" beat Rhody and we go to .500 in the league!

so much for the possibility of playing next Wednesday. most likely finish is a surprising 8th with a rematch vs VCU next Thursday. Tre didn't look like he had his maximum bounce but he played a great game except for a few turnovers. I wonder if he was coached to avoid fouling. Sean contributed greatly, as did Preston. Another game overcoming very bad shooting from Carl.

Nice win! I thought Fran Dunphy was excellent as a color commentator.

Interesting comment about free throw shooting from East during the post game show. He said they've been holding each other accountable ...after shootarounds they shoot free throws. If a player misses one he does 10 push-ups, misses two he does 20, etc. 8)

Not a perfect night from Sean, but still very good. His A/TO was 8 to 4 and that's not bad. If he can give us 18 and 8 we are in good shape. Preston is just the freakin energizer bunny out there. Keon's best game in a while and Tre is just a beast. He's there when the team needs him.

A GREAT WIN!!!!!!!

Very pleasing. Santos, East and Clergeot all had nice games. Tre put up the numbers, made key plays but, oddly, didn’t seem all that dominate. Shows you how great he is. It’d be nice to get Baptiste back. His minutes help.

I do think they could have taken it right at Lasalle more given the size advantage. Kind of an odd game. Road win. 8th place. How sweet would it be to knock uri off the bubble?

A road win, unless it's against the Springfield College JVs is a good win at this point. It's great that East and Clergeot made significant contributions; hope it continues.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Knowledgeable, yes.
Exciting, no. He was putting me to sleep.

Really have to love what Preston has brought to the A10 season. He should absolutely start at forward for the rest of his career at Umass. He has the hustle of Samba but is much more polished.
