Game 25, 2019-20: Dayton (2/15)

Post by InnervisionsUMASS » Tue Feb 11, 2020 4:03 pm

I didn't see a thread for this yet... close it down if one already exists.

One of the top teams in the nation is coming to town and they bring with them one of the top players in the nation. Should see a good crowd there due to those things, I'd imagine.

I'm curious to see how the Toppin-Mitchell rematch goes. We know how good Toppin is and it seems Tre has really found his groove.... could be a battle of epic proportions!

I wonder if Baptiste will be a factor. I didn't see the previous Dayton game--or maybe I repressed the memory--so I don't know how he looked against them. The Djery who showed up against Mason was magnificent. If he plays like that against Dayton, it will be a game changer. What if they get Toppin into foul trouble?

Can they win it, well, I guess. UMass, UMass, yes, yes, yes!

They'll have to play well and almost mistake free if we are to win. Dayton is talented, balanced, and can be very good defensively. We'll have to have our best game to beat them, but what better time and place than Sat at the Bill

IMHO for us to win we'll need Dayton's cooperation. They'll have to come in flat. And yes, we'll have to play our best game of the season. Then it could happen. However, if we play our best game of the season and Dayton plays an average game for them, I think we lose.

Dayton wins by 14. That's good. Had URI beaten them they would have come to Amherst really fired up. We need them to be semi-comatose. :)

7 technicals tonight. Hopefully all the fire UD had for the near future was used up tonight.

Or maybe VCU will look past us and to their next one: at VCU on Tuesday the 18th.

Any little edge, we need it.

had this in another thread but appropriate for here. I am amazed that McCall hasn't brought some of his Florida Experience to us. Grants team plays like the Gators back when they were dominating basketball. dont often get the 6th ranked team to our court. Hoping for a huge crowd

Should get a good crowd, just hope they're all still there by the end. Better be ready to play from the jump or it'll be over early. Dayton is for real

Dayton is a freaking freight train right now. Hoping for a respectable effort at home, probably going to be 15+ point dogs.

Kind of sucks that the biggest crowd of the year (unless we have a good stretch before the URI game) is going to be for an almost sure loss. Hopefully they prove me wrong and give Dayton a good game.

Dayton is one of the few better teams that UMass has had success against.
