Anyone know why Clark only played 2 minutes? I wonder if there is any correlation between how much David and Joe play (get tired?) and how bad they play...Clark needs to see the court more.

 

2 turnovers in 2 minutes probably didn't help his cause.

Unhappiest 11-2 coach and fan board.

Were 11-2. Tough schedule? No. But weve had similar schedules and not been 11-2.

 

Don't count me in the unhappy part. I'm enjoying this season. 

 

Actually I liked that David Nichols had a rough offensive game and we pulled out the win. We would have lost that game for sure last year.

 

Canisius was better than I thought. They ran their offense well and again, the Crumpton kid ate our lunch.

 

Funny the way these end of semester games work out. Our guys are in the middle of their finals, while Canisius players are done with theirs.

Interested to see what the attendance will be for tomorrow night.

Undoubtly, it will be low lot of conflicts this time of the year with holiday parties, holiday concerts, etc., and Disney On Ice at the TUC. My guess around 1500.

It is maac team. If I was going to miss a home game, this would be the one but I will be there

 

 

I was so looking forward to this comment. Thanks Bob!

 

Also, Canisius did beat us out in Buffalo last year.


In Topic: Terrible America East!

I posted this hypothetical in the 17-18 thread, but it's probably more appropriate here.

Think about this when you think of the America East and how bad the league is right now...

Imagine UA has a good game and beats Memphis. Follows with a win against Canisius, then loses by 18 to Louisville. The beat Kent St, then proceed to run through the America East, finishing at 15-1 in conference, splitting with Vermont. Then win 2 conference tournament games, and then lose to UVM in the conference championship.

The team would have finished the year at 30-3, and would probably still not get an at large bid.

Yes part of the blame would be on the weaker schedule (which we all thought would be tough on paper) but in reality the league would have a lot to do with that as well.
 

 

That scenario happens all the time to leagues both good and bad. Last year Monmouth won something like 27 games including a win over Memphis and didn't get a bid. Illinois State is in a much better league, had a win over a ranked opponent and won 27 games but lost in their conference finals and ended up in the NIT.

Judging from their message board, Canisius has been watching us - http://www.voy.com/30982/
