Re: Game 20, 2021-22: George Mason (1/30)

^ The Fairfield game earlier this year only had 1,322 per the box score. That has to be darn close to a record low, although I can remember a few mid-week day games and some snow storm games that were very sparsely attended in past years. There was a game in either 2012 or 2013 versus St. Joe's tha...

Re: Game 20, 2021-22: George Mason (1/30)

We still have a bunch of guys who'll remember blowing the chances to beat them last season. Hopefully they'll be fired up to get the W this time. https://umasshoops.com/wiki/doku.php?id=game20201230_george_mason Could be flirting with another record low crowd in actual people in the building tomorr...

Re: Game 19, 2021-22: at La Salle (1/26)

Tom Gola Arena at Matt McCall court.... Feel bad for La Salle fans, their team stinks, poor guard play, poor coaching. When the lead went from 16-7 there needed to be a time out or something. La Salle's last couple of possessions when they step on the end line is just bad coaching. Not to give our e...

Re: Game 19, 2021-22: at La Salle (1/26)

^

Juice my guess is he is in the concussion protocol he will be out at least tonight and probably Sunday based upon the university’s protocols.

Would think this means more time for Garcia but I’m sure we’ll see the offensively challenged kolton Mitchell more.

Game 19, 2021-22: at La Salle (1/26)

The 1-5 Explores will play host in their high school gym, to the 1-5 Minutes. La Salle has lost to Fordham (bad loss), VCU, BONA, UR at home and lost on the road to Rhody. The most noteworthy part of the Explores season was this (lame) smoke machine. https://www.crossingbroad.com/2021/12/get-pumped-...

Re: Attendance figures

I think for lack of student attendance, it's a cultural thing just as much as the team's struggles. A kid who's really into college basketball and wants to be a "super fan" isn't going to go to UMass. School spirit at the high school level isn't as big in Massachusetts/New England as it i...

Re: Attendance figures

There HAVE to be enough sports management majors/courses that could bring ideas to the forefront as class projects and/or interns for credit. We are pretty distant from the campus daily experience and I think the first step is some research on the student opinions and attitudes on why attending gam...

Re: Attendance figures

Not sure mason is a fair comparison as the number of students who live off campus is like 75 percent of their population. This is about umass. Guys who still go to games , has the in game entertainment improved at all? Is the band playing new songs? Besides basketball are your kids or grand kids hav...

Re: Attendance figures

There should be at least one game in Springfield. Maybe even Worcester. No one outside of Amherst even knows there is still a team playing in Amherst. (Obvious hyperbole). Seriously, the cage is not the answer. The answer should include a way to get fans to the Mullins center during winter session....

Re: Game ##, 2021-22: at Fordham (2/28)

Just saw that Fordham is still not allowing fans and will re evaluate the situation on January 31. So it looks like no fans at our game on the 28th. Too bad. I love pre game, half time and post game beers at Dagger Johns downstairs. our game is not until february so maybe 500 people will show up. W...

Re: Attendance figures

Every wintersession home game should be at the Cage. Throw in one November/December game as well when the students are still on campus. Figure it out with the Mullins.

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...
