#104404 [MBB] Game #12: 12/12/17 - 9:00pm - @ Memphis

Posted by Dane96 on Today, 12:13 AM

This is, unfortunately, one of those games where David goes Gung Ho and shoots us out of the game with stupid shots. Love the kid but sometimes he relapses into what looks like maybe HS habits and doesn't play within the team offense.

Edit: Joe isnt doing much better from the floor, all things considered.

 

You're kidding, right?

 

Without David taking those shots...we'd have lost by 15.  

 

He simply missed buckets.  Definitely some blame to go-around in a winnable game that the guys will rue...moreso than the Monmouth loss (maybe)...but the blame doesn't lay at David's feet.  

 

Simply put, Charles, Cremo, and Campbell didn't have particularly great evenings.  Can't win against an AAC team without those guys.  If even one of them had been on...we may win this thing.  But, the reality is we missed shots that we generally make...and Memphis was long, which definitely had an impact around the hoop (11 blocks). 

 

Live.Learn.Move on.

Their message board is really very funny.  

 

Side note: I'm done with the America East and Siena boards. It has been overrun by arrogant and annoying Siena and UVM fans, both who happen to have green as a uniform color.  I can't even read or respond to them anymore.  Click, I don't know how you do it.  They are non-stop annoying. 

 

Fixed it for you.

Eff 'em.  For 20 years...yes, when we were DIIi and DII with aspirations of moving up...people kept saying, "watch out...you keep it up with your arrogant attitude...and quickly you will become irrelevant.".  Well, that's a made up quote but similar statements were made.

But no...they kept the arrogant attitude.  One specific person: the Siena public address announcer who I happened to work with at the Albany Firebirds. Total buffoon.  

 

So I say again...

 

...Eff 'em....and no more cow-towing to them.  

The days of the "measels" team, Mike Deane, Bob Hewitt, and Fran McCaffery are over.

Is this team the first half team or second half team...? Can't figure it out. Someone is going to smack them down to reality soon... Hopefully not Saturday.

 

Grumble.  Stop stealing my lines.  You're dead to me...

 

:D

Shouldn't it just prompt you for your cable provider login? Should be location independent after that I thought.

 

ESPN is blocked in Canada. Bastards.  ;)

 

I use a VPN to go through my cable provider to watch my cable.  Even with that...ESPN says i am geolocated outside of the US.  Their international player only works in the middle east, europe, and africa (because there are SO MANY tv sets tuned into ESPN in Africa...WTF)

That was a solid, come from behind victory.  Gut check answered.  

 

And yes, it did come through loud on ESPN 3.

Me thinks our heads got a bit too big.

I don’t want to hear the tired excuse. That may be true. But a lot of this is lazy...not tired. This Salnave kid just played 4 OT’s...and he’s playing like his life depended upon going hard all game.

Our players are sleep walking.

Stire should apologize to his teammates after this one.

The replay was pretty clear. Definitely a mere foul...but on Quinn...he hooked and elbowed Charles. How they didn’t see it on the replay, I won’t understand.

These refs are insane. Quinn just elbowed Charles and they call it on Travis?

David Nichols just put on a display. (Forgetting that shot under 1 minute). He was making unreal plays look easy, both passing and shooting.

And, Matt Conway just provided an unreal boost on the defensive end. Kid must have had 4-5 defensive rebounds with Stire and Foster out with 2 fouls apiece.

UNH getting in over Delaware is for one reason and one reason only: to keep the streak alive.

 

Total travesty.
