.500 record would be a victory, next year.

I would be extremely excited the following year.

I'm very interested in the recruiting class but I hope we bring them along at an appropriate pace.

I think Clergeot and Pierre are going to be playing 30 minutes a game. Probably close to that for Diallo and Chatman too.

I'm not sure about Diallo just because of his knee problem.

What do we know about the knee, other than he missed end of last season? Anything?

I don't remember any details.

I think he had ACL surgery his senior year of high school, and then missed time last year with issues in the same knee. I hope he's able to fully recover and not have it limit him through his entire career.

It's more than missed time. His season was shut down because of recurring pain and I believe he had a second surgery to try to clean thing s up.

I didn't know he had surgeries. That is not good.

UMass at Fairfield confirmed for Saturday, November 9.

Venue is TBD. It may depend largely on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) schedule and the possibility of them using Webster Bank Arena that day. The Sound Tigers' season schedule hasn't been released yet. The Stags use Webster for some of their home games.

He had surgery for the torn ACL his senior year of high school and some follow up this past March due to pain in the knee. No info here on exactly what was done. That's why I think his minutes could be limited.

So we've got 9 OOC games. That leaves 4 more to be scheduled, right? So far there's 4 tough teams (Yale, Virginia, ASU/St Johns, NU), 3 moderate (Rider, Rutgers, S. Carolina), and 2 light (Fairfield, Central Conn). That's a pretty decent schedule. Two more light and two moderate teams would be a nice balanced load.

I think a .500 record this season would be a huge achievement. I think a 12th place finish in the A10 means one more year for McCall to improve...if 20-21 isn’t good, he’s gone.

The article mentions that Dudley is playing for the Lakers. I didn't know he was still in the NBA.

^ I'll give Lowell credit for a pretty ambitious road schedule. From the above article:
UMass Lowell hasn't released its full 2019-20 schedule yet, but the non-conference portion will feature some marquee names.
The River Hawks will play road games at Michigan, Ohio State and UMass. The exact dates of those games will be announced later.

Wait, what the heck is a sound tiger? Or are they the tigers of Bridgeport Sound, in which case, is there even a sound at Bridgeport? According to Wikipedia, a sound is deeper than a bight and wider than a fjord, so you know, whatever that means.
