Thought we had to hit 3's to have any chance but TM is proving me wrong!

WOOOOOHOOOOOO, 11-0 run, you got these fookers right where ya want them. Now KO their sorry ass in the second half.
Keon, please stop shooting bricks, you are killing any offense.

They took at a lot of quick, bad threes for most of that first half and Virginia was getting pretty much whatever they wanted on offense. UMass stopped taking those bad shots — Keon made a great pass to CP for a good, rhythm three and Tre attacked the hoop — and their defense settled down a bit and boom right back in the game.

Will be surprised if they manage to pull this one out — I just think VA is too good and disciplined — but they’ve already shown me something in how they react when they get punched in the face.

The game isn't over but holding their own against a top 10 team shows me a lot.

Ya, I expect UVA will win this by 12 or so but I love the way this UMass team plays. They will almost certainly get better as they play better competition and will be a tough team to play by the end of the conference schedule.

Probably jacked up at the start which may have caused the early misses. I think they see they can compete and I think 2nd half they play their game.
I think they're in this to the end

Feed Tre 'till they stop him, and Carl & TJ bury 3's.

This is the first UMass team in a while that really enjoy watching play even when they are losing.
I totally agree.

This has been one of the better officiated college basketball games I've seen in a long time.
