Re: 2021 HE and NCAA Playoffs

What a night!! And a special congrats to some of the people who stuck with the program through some really hard times and helped revive it, like Meff, Rocks, Wardy and a bunch of others that I would remember if I weren't half in the bag! You guys deserve this!

Re: 2021 HE and NCAA Playoffs

Unbelievable! This is a gritty team that does all the little things you need to win. Even with Lindberg returning, Murray should start Saturday night after this heroic effort.

Re: 2021 HE and NCAA Playoffs

Love it! One of the commentators (not Barry) said he thinks this is a more complete team than the Makar group two years ago.

Re: 2021 HE and NCAA Playoffs

I'm surprised there's been only one defection from the basketball tournament so far. BTW, Bemidji leads Wisconsin 4-1 and the ice looks terrible! Complaining about the ice is in the DNA of every hockey fan from MA. It’s what we do. Especially us UMass fans. The Mullins still needs another compresso...

Re: 2021 HE and NCAA Playoffs

Does anybody know anything about Lake State? They were a huge program when Jess Jackson coached them to two national championships, but that was many years ago. Looks like they have rebounded the last couple of years, but I still know nothing about them. There aren't a whole lot of national TV games...

Re: Georgetown - 25 years ago tonight

The Georgetown game is Number One for me. Number Two was beating Georgia Southern for the D1AA NC in Chattanooga.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I have to say I was always a little uncomfortable with putting all of our eggs in the Woodstock basket. I'm not sure it's really healthy to rely on one recruiting source.

Re: Game 15, 2020-21: St. Louis (A10 Rd3)

It's a tough matchup. SLU is bigger, more physical and more experienced than UMass. But our backcourt is faster and I think we'll be much more competitive this time if the guards can force the tempo and open up some space. DeGray really struggled against their bigs and hopefully he learned some thin...

Re: John Chaney passes

It was a heated rivalry but I always respected Chaney. There wasn't a phony bone in his body and you always knew where he was coming from. I would argue that we hated Mike Jarvis a lot more. (Older members of this board might remember that we called him "Satan.") RIP Coach Chaney.

Re: Game 7, 2020-21: Rhode Island (1/13)

^ Neither was I. And to think I was at a packed Hangar filled with pre-spring break St. Pat's Day revelers before the game. The virus could already have been floating around for all I now know. I look forward to returning to the Mullins ASAP but I'm sure it won't be reopened to the public until they...

Re: Dee Rowe

Dee and Jack were fierce rivals on the court but they forged a great friendship off the court. Tom, I really miss those days of New England basketball before the Big East and A10 (nee Eastern Eight) broke it all up.
