A very nice win and well played game. Dawn is their leading scorer and he shot 100% from the field (2-2). This shows how much AA took him out of the game. I thought Jeff played his best game of the year, I do think, however, that Maxwell and Bowers will both be starting soon (if not already) with Vi...

Rudy. I think some of your analysis is incorrect: Padilla you listed as a DNP. He actually played in all 35 games and started in 7. Travieso played in 28 games but got limited minutes. Dingle played in 31 games and started in 7. He actually was starting at the end of the year in the92-93 season and ...

Let's look at game coaching the last 2 games - in both instances Umass up by 1. In BC game we have the ball in Cconn game they have the ball. With BC needing to foul (or we can run out the clock) Gabe Lee an 18% foul shooter is left in the game. Chris Chadwick is on the bench. He is certainly a bett...

White Rhino, if a job opened up in the country and every coach in the A10 applied for it who do you think would be the last (or possible next to last coach) considered? 13 wins with this schedule is worse than 11 wins with last years schedule. What I gathered from the recent football report is basic...

Innervision, I could not attend last nights game, although I attend many, many, games. However I would suggest that rather than criticize those who did attend, you should vent your anger at the multitude of those who no longer go or care. Anyone who still spends their time and money should be commen...

VoxPop let me tell you with certainty, if this team does not improve significantly, Lappas will be gone. Based on the fact that we have already lost to 2 terrible teams we are certainly not doing anything any better. No matter how many good players you have, and saying we have more talent now than b...

Mother Theresa, you said that Art Bowers was the 4th best 1st year player. I assume that you mean you think that Freeman and Maxwell is better (and I question your assumption of Maxwell as better than Bowers) then who is the other ahead of Bowers.

If you went solely by statistics, then Bowers shouldn't start - 31% from the field. Thus statistics, especially this early and so similar, shouldn't mean that much. I thought that Maxwell played better today. The problem we have with the 3 spot, in addition to lack of shooting, is poor rebounding. T...

I thought that this was easily the best played and coached game of this young season. My only criticism would be that Lee should not have been in the game with 21 seconds left. Chadwick should have been in - since BC had to foul, or we would run out the clock, we could have got him back in for defen...

I was there for Al's last 2 years and I loved everything about his game. More than anything else he was a great team player.

WE should expect to beat BC. They lost Bell & Sidney and have injuries in Hinnant. A close loss is not a positive thing. We should not get to a point where we are happy to stay within 10 to a mediocre team. No finger pointing - just wins!

Lap was wise to play AA all 40 minutes. As he mentioned he made a mistake taking AA out after he got 2 fouls in the Hartford game. We simply are too inexperienced on the perimeter without him. If Chadwick, Bowers, and Maxwell are out there together we have 3 freshmen. We need AA's experience. With u...
