I'm happy he's doing this this year.
So Miami and Seattle is right next door right? What about BC never leaving their house.

He mentions that rest of the story. I just liked the other quotes.

UMass shooting 24% (8-33) in the first half.

With the score 39-26 right now, I am really, really hoping that they put up a serious fight over the last 15 minutes at home. I will be very disappointed if they roll over at home in this game.

From 42-37 with 11:32 to go, BC went on a 20-9 run over the next 9 minutes.

I think that qualifies as rolling over

I would say so too. I really wish it showed in their play that these players care if the fans like watching for them. Can anyone say that they clawed like thier lives depended on it over the last 10 minutes? Remember: "no" is not an option for a team that believes in its coach. "No" is not an option for a team that wants people to devote the expense, time and emotion required to be supportive fans. Was that one experience after beating uconn enough for these guys?

I can handle losing to BC at this point. I didn't expect to beat them. But I didn't expect them to allow themselves to be embarassed at home. It's the same as the Miami game. I'm MUCH more disappointed in the performance than in the result.

dissapointing.

i was at the game and that's all i have to say. i was dissapointed in how everyone played (TOO MANY TURNOVERS!). they all looked half asleep.
i thought maybe we had something during that 7-0 run but anthony's 3 only capped it off... we shoulda gone somewhere with it.

i probably won't be able to go to the temple game but i better come home hearing some better news than this

Somnolent play for much of the game - no movement, esp. when AA was in there in first half. A couple of cursory runs at it, but BC quickly put them away back to 11+ deficits.

No energy, Ball movement lacking. Lots of Offensive rebounds and second third shots by BC. Lasme and "Big Deli" did very little in there - BC was much quicker to the hoop.

Ray got mad and energized a couple of times.

Disappointing effort - blown chance to re-engage fans.

Maybe it's just me, but it gets real old having to read the same old bullshit from DS after every loss.

Hey Webster - why don't you expound on what a great coach Steve Lappas is? That will make for much more upbeat reading.
