Re: Game 17, 2021-22: Saint Louis (1/20)

In DK’s last year he had a freshman manager who was doing some good research in analytics…similar to the stuff that NBA teams were using to try and gain an advantage over their opponents. It took awhile but DK and the staff were interested in having him do some work for them(at no cost) for the fol...

I doubt we go with out fans Fordham is a much smaller gym

Re: New UMass Basketball Podcast

It seems like he doesn't do the podcast very often these days. The last one was on Sept 24? He didn't do a season preview and I'm not expecting an A10 preview prior to the St Louis game. I guess I can't be too disappointed, he's just a fan like all of us and does this as a passion project on the si...

Re: Game 11, 2021-22: North Texas (12/11)

^ That's why I can't figure out why the home/road splits are so bad. Mullins Center crowds are very small, I think probably the lowest they've been since the place opened, and we play plenty of road games in New England with good UMass alumni turnout. It's not a fan support thing, it's a coach thin...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Steadman and Walker are listed as seniors, Buttrick and R Kelly are list as grads on the UMass website. Jones is listed as a Jr. But bc of the covid year, I'm hoping that's why we zero commits as of now. We have zero commits because mcall is essentially a lame duck Didn’t he sign an extension at th...

Re: Game 4, 2021-22: vs Weber State (11/18)

I do think we matchup well vs them they don’t dominate the boards and look to turn you over which I don’t think we do a ton with multiple good ball handlers

It’s a small gym and I’m expecting a very pro UMass crowd so that could be a big advantage

Re: Game 3, 2021-22: Penn State (11/15)

I like that the line-up took a little shape. I'm guessing JG was hurt because there is no reason Kolton plays before him. Getting Steadman back and moving Buttrick to the 4 will really solidify things. I can see the starting 5 being Noah, Rich, CJ, Buttrick, and Steadman. Off the bench I can see JG...

Re: Game 3, 2021-22: Penn State (11/15)

Fun to watch the players giving a solid effort tonight. There were no worries about having to go through Tre Mitchell (and his stepdad coach). With that said, we are still seeing the passing around the three-point arc with limited attempts to get inside. Plus PSU didn't have a dominating inside pre...

Yeah think a-10 is. 2 bid league and that 2nd bid will come from an a-10 upset and bonnies running most of the table
