Game 32, 2017-18: vs La Salle, A10 Rd 1 (3/7)

Post by uz2b-len » Tue Mar 06, 2018 5:23 pm

I think it's gonna be a dogfight. I like that we have Randall West to throw at BJ (so to speak). That's an asset we didn't have in Philly. I'm really looking forward to watching the game. From the UMassAthletics game notes:
The game is set for a 6 PM tip-off and will be televised by Stadium. Matt Martucci (play-by-play) and Tim Welch (analyst) will have the call for Stadium. The game will also be streamed online for free via the Atlantic 10 Digital Network. On the radio airwaves, the game will be broadcast on the UMass Sports Network anchored by flagship station 105.5 FM WEEI and online via the TuneIn App. Voice of the Minutemen Josh Maurer will be joined courtside by former Minuteman Tim Collins.
I can't figure out if the a10 stream is the same product as the Stadium broadcast. Any thoughts on that? Any reason to prefer one production over the other? I've had sporadic success with both. Wish I was there. Where are they gonna be next year, anyone know? Any game watches anywhere?

Beat LaSalle and they'll be on NBC Sports on Thursday. Call me crazy, but I don't think there's anybody in this league that they're not capable of beating, except maybe St. Bona - who is my pick to win the tourney and has a chance of making it to the Sweet Sixteen.

LaSalle open up as 5 point favorites. I think it’s going to be a difficult game to win, it will come down to coaching and basketball IQ, not athleticism or skill.

I do think the winner of this game will also go on and beat George Mason.

I am not expecting a win, but think it can happen. If they do pull it out I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a mini run... that said..

Best case scenario:

UMass runs the table and wins the tournament.
Our championship victory is over SBU
URI loses it's first game in a bloodbath to Dayton
UMass and SBU are in the tournament, URI misses the field of 64 and goes onto a 2nd round exit in the NIT.

Anyone going to this game?

I'm leaving work a little early and going to buy a $7 ticket on SeatGeek. It's a suite ticket, but I'm assuming I will be able to just move to the regular concourse.

If the guys have fun and play inspired ball like they did on senior night we will win this game. Use KTM and West to give BJ hell and make sure Malik stays out of foul trouble to give us a solid scoring effort. Need Unique to crash the boards hard and CJ to go for 15 pts/7 ast/5 reb.

I believe we are a dangerous team in this tournament. It's difficult to play as hard as they did to finish the season when you have nothing to play for. Senior night showed what this roster is capable of when they do have something to play for. Coach McCall will have this team fired up with a "new season" mindset.

Anyone know if they will in fact be streaming it over Facebook? Weirdly enough my TV picks up Facebook videos from the phone - used it to watch Tom vs Time - and it's preferred to plugging the laptop in via HDMI.
