Yale are 6.5 point favorites AT Rhode Island

After the Archie Miller hire, this is mind boggling

SLU was down 16 to Utah State with 4 minutes left and almost pulled it out. They got it down to 3 with 14 seconds but USU hit its FT's. Jimerson had 28.

Tre Mitchell on if he remembers playing against Saint Joseph's while at UMass:

"I don't know, but I was probably going to work though. I was going to work in the A-10. I was running the A-10 for the couple years I was in there. That's why I left."
Agree 100 per cent ! TB contributed but he appeared to have thought he was better than he was ! Sounds like now , he was too good to play here !
Wow what a delusional quote. TB and Tre's mom definitely didn't do him any favors in the advice department. He was very good here but I wouldn't say he was running the A-10. Yowza!

^ We all know who was running the A10. It was Tony Bergeron, at least he was in his own mind. :lol:

The comment is super douchey, but he's getting the last laugh being a significant contributor for Kentucky so far.

The quote was def very douchey... the content certainly had some accuracy, but it's unfortunate he said it the way he did.

When 7'1" Freshman Aaron Bradshaw returns from injury (#5 rated prospect 2023) Mitchell will have his minutes diminished.

St. Joe's looks like the class of the A10. Watched them take a very good Kentucky team to OT, and now watching them smack Nova around in the 1st half. No idea how they lost to Texas A&M Commerce. Really no idea. They look like a top 25 squad.

I'm not buying GMU, Loyola, or VCU. Not sure what's what with GW.

They're still up big in the second half with only 2:30 to play (up 14).

Joe's wins by 13, and they look very very good.

Watch out for St. Joe’s as this might be the best team in the A10. Did not see Kentucky game, but was surprised by what they did on the road at Rupp by going to OT. Tonight, I have been watching the St. Joe’s vs Villanova game and this team plays fearless with guys who can shoot (Reynolds’s, Brown, Greer) and play great defense. Enjoyed watching this team play at the Barclays for the A10 tournamen last year so not a real surprise. Anyhow, they should get votes in National Poll, but they way it works is that teams with 5-2 records from the major conference with 0 quality wins will always trump the deserving mid-majors with quality wins. . As you may know, Lynn Greer III is the son of Lynn Greer who played for John Cheney at Temple 20 years ago. Hopefully, Dayton can knock off SMU for another quality A10 win tonight.

They lost to a horrible team earlier in the season - they shouldn’t get votes yet. That said, I agree with you that they are good. We need to figure out how to guard guards or we’ll get torched by Reynolds.

Agree with bad loss. But they have proven with OT loss at #16 Kentuck and win at #19 Villanova that they are worthy of votes. Concerned that Reynolds, Greer and Browns in addition to athletic Fleming and mammoth 7ft Asiango will crush us at home.

Yesterday was a good day for the A10. St. Joes over Temple was the headliner, but 9 wins, 2 losses is a good day.
