Game 23, 2019-20: at Rhode Island (2/4)

Post by MikeUMA » Mon Feb 03, 2020 4:56 pm

Yikes. Another one on the road, and this one's against a serious contender in the league.

We're at Rhody (16-5 / 8-1) tomorrow night. Rhody will show up with the RV tag, they got some votes in the AP poll, put 'em at #30.

At 8-1, they're a game out of first (Dayton), and two full games ahead of the 5-team logjam at 6-3. They'll want to ensure they get this one to stay ahead.

We're in trouble. Pretty much nothing worked vs Davidson the other night. It'll take a Herculean effort to turn it around and steal one in Kingston. The streak of conference road losses looks like it's going to extend to 21. I would love to be wrong.

I think we have a good chance to break the losing streak sometime this season (Fordham, LaSalle) but I don't think it will be tomorrow night.

I'd like to see UMass split their games with URIne.

Rhode Island will destroy us if we implement any sort of full court pressure. Fats and Dowtin will have a layup drill going. I know McCalls reasoning is to take time of opponents possession time but most of the season it has provided super super easy baskets against us. would love to see solid half court defense and even match up zone or something. Something outside the box and mix it up. 1-3-1 zone even though that would expose us on our poor rebounding. Something other than that we have seen so far. I think Tre can have a monster game against Langevine. Our post passes have to be solid and the double and triple team IS coming. We all hope that McCall recognizes this and has Tre and the other guys ready for the one and two pass around it for an open shot. Please!!!!!!!!!!! Hope!!!!!!

It looks like we are at least 10 point underdogs and could be as much as 16.

619 and 620 are the "team ID" when the bet is logged into the system, basically every team has a number associated to it on a given night(s). The over under is 145.5 and Rhode Island is favored by 16.5. -10 is the vig on the line (lay 110 to win 100).

I say it will be a hard fought game but we lose by 12.

National TV game on CBS sports. The last 3 of those (Dayton, GW, Davidson) have been 3 of the worst ever.

I'd like to order a large portion of regression to the mean, please.

I don't get CBSSN so I won't be able to watch this disaster.
