The "dudes" here are getting a little grumpy. Gametime can't come soon enough! (Sorry LS, couldn't help myself 8) )

:lol: :lol:

Curious to see if the D is cleaned up tonight at all. I'm sure that, and FT shooting, were big focuses over the last two days of practice.

Weather is deterring me. Bought the ESPN+ package. UNH looks small and young. Two first years from same TX town.

Recent history is excellent under Herrion.

Improved defense is what I'm hoping to see -- didn't really turn Lowell over all too much, would be nice if are able to get that part of the D going along with better communication and a little more intensity at that end. Offensively we scored 83 against Lowell and didn't shoot particularly well from the line or from deep so I'm not so much concerned with that.

Still way too early to really be concerned with anything I guess, but hoping the d steps up a bit.

UMass 81 UNH 67

Side note: I always wonder what if Scott Drapeau had stayed back in the early 90s...ok maybe I don’t always wonder that but it does cross my mind every so often.
I don't think he even stuck around at UNH.
He played a couple years at UNH and was really good. I think 20+ PPG, 10+ RPG and was their conference player of the year one year I believe...
From econ's recent link:

Am I allowed to bring a change of clothes since I can't bring an umbrella or will they be considered a weapon with my ninja skills?

Seriously though, looking for a good 15 plus point win tonight.

Should be fun watching the folks who had their umbrellas confiscated on Tuesday get pissed when they walk up to the doors soaking wet, only to see them letting people in with their umbrellas :lol:

5 team fouls for UNH this early. Hope we keep driving to the lane. If we're shooting 1 and 1 by the 12 minute mark, could be a long day for UNH

A real mismatch - UM 39-20 with 447 left in half. Holloway dominant on O.

Sounds like maybe 1500 people there.

Great to see the team respond from game 1 by playing much better D and FT shooting. Also when's the last time we had 4 guys that were legit shooters??

i like tre wood getting real minutes. he needs to calm down on the offensive tip, but defensively i like what he was doing. he could be fun to watch.

obviously terrific defense that half.

Captain, I really like trey wood. Kid is going to be a very good pg here, super, super quick, strong, and good court vision. I really like all 3 freshman. Nice to have at least 4 legit 3 pt shooters too. This team will be tough when they gel

Anyone believe Holloway's 310 cited weight? That said, he is dominating down low.
