Some on this board have called out Walfish for slightly less than stellar reporting, which I've been mum on, but today's game preview has a major whiff in it.https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-faces- ... n-31914234
FAB FRESHMEN — UMass has relied heavily on its freshmen. Mitchell, Carl Pierre, Sean East II and Samba Diallo have combined to account for 66 percent of the team’s scoring this year and 83 percent of all Minutemen points over the team’s last five games.
Wait, what? Is he saying that Pierre and Diallo are part of the freshmen group? Also, Diallo is at 6.5 PPG (97 total), which puts him at 5th on the team, and way below Mitchell, East, Pierre, and even Weeks who hasn't played in over a month. If you're putting Diallo in that group, you should also put Keon, who has 1 less point on the season than Diallo. This reads like an excerpt he yanked out of an AP preview and inserted in his own without actually reading it.

It's poorly worded but he used a period after the word "freshmen" which ends that thought. He knows who the freshmen and upperclassmen are.

Wish I wasn’t reading this right, but I am... Dayton are 19 point favorites.

Horrible camera clarity.

2 on Samba, not good

They just called Sean East, Sean West. Later it'll be Sean North

On the radio pre-game Jay says something like hate to see Dayton go on a 14-2 run and get the 14K+ crowd going... but there it is Dayton off to a 14-2 start.

Plenty of time for UMass to get it going....

Little shell shocked to start this but you know what, fuck it. Nobody is giving you any chance to win so just put your head down, focus and play hard, just see what happens. Show what you got

One of the few places I’ve seen UMass play. It’s a tough environment, and Dayton is already covering the spread. :evil:

I hope UMass can achieve that level of consistency again.

Welp this is a slap in the face so far and shows you how far we still have to go. Dayton is a really good, veteran team but we are making them look like Tark’s UNLV team out there.

Jeesh. No one can create any offense, turning it over and the defense is a mess. We are just a young, overmatched team and we aren’t playing very well. Would be a win to lose by less than 30 at this point.

How come the color guy can see that the press isn't working, but MM can't and still does it?

Can we have Kolton run the point this half and see how that goes?

Maybe with Toppin out we can stay somewhat even the 2nd half. Then we'd just lose by 26.
