Re: 2021-2022 Season

^ From an article in "Mizzou Basketball": ”It was kind of robotic and stagnant,” he said of the spread pick-and-roll system. “It was really easy to guard at times. At times there wasn’t the best shot taken.” Modern as McCall’s offense might seem, it remains a pattern-based setup, and oppon...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Do we really know why Tre left? For me, that's one of the biggest unanswered questions of the off season. Ronnie posted a few comments and they gave us a clue on his thought process. We have all speculated about Tre but as far as I know, Tre has not said anything. What did he post? I'll look for th...

Re: KAEO: Greg Jones

I have spoken with 5 or 6 of my friends who follow UM BB regarding Jones. Granted none of them are scouts, but they are all avid fans and have a pretty good handle on college BB. Not one of them can figure out why we used the last slot on Jones. I certainly hope he plays great and makes me look fool...

Re: 2021-22 Season: Defend the Trophy

Announcement from UM Hockey on Taylor Makar:
https://umassathletics.com/news/2021/6/ ... 21-22.aspx

I hope he doesn't put too much pressure on himself and I also hope we (the fans) don't have unrealistic expectations. There's only 1 Cale Makar.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Our front court is scary uncertain :shock: Agreed. We need 4 of the 5 front court guys to play better than they have in the past, either here or at their previous stops. None of them are proven scorers or rebounders in DI except Steadman. Here are their DI career averages: Walker 4.6 points, 1.9 re...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Looks like Rothstein made a mistake on ours - he has Duquesne listed as both home and away, but we only play them at home. The one we have away appears to be Dayton (we're on their schedule, but they don't appear on ours). You are correct about us playing at Dayton and being home to Duq. I'm not su...

2022 Northfield Mount Hermon (MA) F Luke Hunger has received an offer from Massachusetts.
Don't know how good he might be but you can't teach size (6'10, 250). He's from Montreal and picked up an offer from Miami (The U) in May.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Just saw this video of DD. Not sure where or when it was taken, but he doesn't look like the DD we saw last year. There are lots of questions to be answered with this years team. I'm hoping that DD and Dibaji can step up and provide some interior scoring and rebounding. In the past they have tended ...

Re: KAEO: Greg Jones

Found a video of him at SCSU. He wears #1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TWYdGmBiMo From his SCSU bio. It seems surprising that he didn't do better at JMU. We need rebounding and interior defense so I'm hoping Greg is a late bloomer. Before Southern Connecticut State University: Averaged 2.2 poin...

Re: Recruiting -- 2018 and beyond

^ The news behind the news is that he is no longer Minn. property and can make a deal with any team. After last year's performance there will be a few teams trying to land him which ought to lead to a bigger contract. Now we know for sure why Matt is coming back.

Re: KAEO: Greg Jones

Is this the right guy? https://twitter.com/i/status/1400888702159753221 I don't think so. Our Greg Jones is from the Bronx, played sparingly for 2 years at JMU and then 1 year at Southern CT. He is 6'7, 220 and averaged 13.8 and 7.6 against the likes of AIC, Adelphi, St. Michael's, Southern New Ham...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Good move by Bell. Or maybe a bad move if Jim is his replacement in waiting. Pete Thamel @PeteThamel Sources: UMass plans to make former head coach Jim Reid the interim defensive tackles coach. Reid is the former head coach at UMass, Richmond and VMI. He’s worked with the program recently as an anal...

Re: 21-22 Season

If the other 4 freshmen get here, Verdi will have the deepest team he has ever had. We have 7 returning players, 2 transfers and the 4 newbies for a total of 13. He has never had that many players as far as I can recall.
