After a little consultation with "my guy" I believe there will be a Benjamin hanging on Umass tonight. Looks I will be avoiding the "Don't" tonight at the casino too!
In Matt McCall I trust!

As we all have experienced in life, we can't control the outcome of events, only our own actions. Keeping that in mind, I just want to see the team play with the energy and smarts they showed against Davidson. That may not be enough to win unless Pierre hits 5 three's or someone else scores 20+ points. But it will mean the program is heading in the right direction.

Cobb is out as well with an ankle injury.. could be 2-3 weeks.. I expect Tre Wood to have a big game close to his hometown with extended minutes

Have to make more free throws and be more careful about letting them steal offensive rebounds, but other than that I’ve been pleased

I think this might be the most one-sided reffing we’ve seen all year

I think neither team would want to hang that half in a museum. Up 8 and then those last four minutes were brutal. Not good enough to turn it over and give away free points.

Hanging around though. I think we will the whole way.

^yep. Looks like we're in for a rock fight in the second half. Play tough, play smart, get the W.

Man, this officiating blows. It is going to be hard to win when we are playing with 3 dudes. Fuck. Not cool. The boys are playing well, too.

16 fouls on UMass, 4 on GMU. Nice.

These refs are either dirty or incompetent. Fouls are at 16 against UMass vs 4 against GMU.

When they showed the replay of Clergeot's "foul" defending the fast break layup he didn't touch the guy in any way. The shooter put his hand in Clergeot's chest, however.

Zero fouls called on GMU at this point in the half. 4 for the game.
