Over the last 43 years since Jack Leaman retired, here are the 9 coaches winning percentage that followed him: Wilson 9.4%, McLaughlin 28.6%, Gerlufsen 39.6%, Cali...

Re: Game 15, 2021-22: at Davidson (1/11)

looking at the box score two things really stuck out: 1. Trent shot 10 three-pointers. Made 2. This is why I hate 5th-year transfers coming into your program. They are there to get their stat line to try to get a pro contract. Since Thanksgiving Trent is shotting at a 37/24/69 clip. Pass the ball T...

Re: Game 14, 2021-22: Duquesne (1/8)

I agree with all of the comments posters have made about the offense but offense isn't the issue. It's the other side - DEFENSE. Why did Duq. make most of their inside shots and why did we miss a lot? They had 2 guys defending the rim and most of our shots were contested. Once #23 (Spears) got by R...

Re: Game 14, 2021-22: Duquesne (1/8)

TOO MUCH DRIBBLING.Need to have an offense that passes the ball around to open up open shots. No stupid cross court passes. Yup, simple coaching. Back in the day with my 3rd and 4th grade and 5th and 6th grade travel teams I would have them scrimmage with a flat ball. Can't dribble...need to pass. ...

Not accurate. They were ranked in the mid and early 90’s and I believe in 80’s.

Re: Game 14, 2021-22: Duquesne (1/8)

From what I understand, he has one more year left so after this season they will have to make a decision, extend him more years or fire him. No chance they will let him come back as a lame duck coach. Plus he'd get no good recruits to commit if he was in a lame duck year. He is already out the door...

Re: New UMass Basketball Podcast

John Leonard was a nice person albeit pretty quiet. I think both he and Lappas would have stayed here forever. I think Leonard still lives in Amherst and kudos to him for getting his older son to play hockey for a college that let him go. John McCutcheon was a wonderful person. I think he was under...

That’s what I remember as well. I don’t think he had a choice to stay.

Re: Game 13, 2021-22: at Richmond (1/5)

^ 8 man rotation is where most teams are. Maybe 9. McCall has never realized that. He gives too much PT to too many instead of having them earn it in season as players graduate or move on step into the role. His criteria for earning playing time is not self evident to the public. The amount of trans...

Re: 2022 Recruiting

I guess that my objection to mostly using the portal is that maybe some of the players know that they are just renting themselves to UMass for a year. We read about so many guys going to their third or even fourth school. Last night we started five from the portal. I don't follow the national colle...

He is not close to a dime a dozen. He was a top recruit nationally.

Re: New UMass Basketball Podcast

McCall isn’t trying to rely on transfers but 5 of the top 6 player minutes are to transfers. Sorry but you’re not even factually making sense. McCall like any coach has been taking transfers in to improve the team and his rate is no different and may even be higher than Ford. The reason Ford sticks...
