Hadn't seen a game thread about this yet.

4:30pm EST. It's on national TV, USA Network - (no more NBC Sports Network :( )

It's been forever since I've seen UMass on TV, generally, their results are better when I watch them play so yay for that.

ESPN gives URI a 58.2% of winning even though it's at our place. URI is #95 in the Sagarin ratings.

I don't have much insight into their team as I haven't seen them play yet.

Weather is going to be super cold. They're calling for 10° temp (-3° wind chill) and 10-20 mph winds at game time. I'll be there, but I don't expect to see a whole heck of a lot of others, even though it is a rivalry game.

Thanks to Signman, I'll be there and am bringing a buddy. It is all about being good with 3's with this team, as they will throw them up regardless of shooting success, 15% or 48%. Looks like much of their scoring comes from the 2 Mitchells - at 6 foot nine and ten respectively. Could be a mismatch for us down low.

For TV they are saying USA network which is carried on streaming on FLO SPORTS. Can't record the gamer. My daughter is taking me out to eat foe my 85 Th birthday which is on Monday the 17 Th. Same goes for the women's game at 4:30 on ESPN 2.

^^ I'm not sure what Flo Sports has to do with USA Network. I don't think they're a partnership.

If you get USA through your TV package, you should be able to use that to authenticate to USA's stream. Works for me.

This is the first of 4 games we have on USA thru the rest of this season.

If we can't get this one tomorrow, things could go from bad to worse. Our games after that:
1/20 vs SLU
1/23 at SLU
1/26 at La Salle

SLU is 10-5 and poised to contend for the league title.
We suck on the road so any away game is a challenge.

Gotta get it tomorrow or we'll be lucky to draw 2k the rest of the season.

You can also download the USA app. We may be needing it for various sports now with the NBC Sports channel gone.

It's also Noah's birthday. A win would be the ultimate birthday present.

URI are -2.5 point favorites. I think that’s a good sign for UMass after our recent play.

UMass takes it down with our first big conference win of the year! Let’s go

Happy bday Berkman !
