The chance to add a proven guard to the mix of what we have coming back would be amazing. We didn't have that much depth at the back court last year so Maitland could really make for something special.
The other nice part about Maitland, he's already got a win again Siena (last year's CBI)
First off, congrats Click. We can start calling this the Click Clack Invitational now.
Also, the ugliness of last night's game wasn't all on the officials. Carolina shot 57% from the free throw line and 4-27 from three. Watching 23 missed three point shots and a bunch of missed free throws isn't fun no matter what the refs are doing.
Compared to last year's Villanova - UNC game which was amazing. Both teams shot over 50% from three and much better from the line.
Kind of surreal to watch a UA signee playing on ESPN in April and having the announcers talking about your program. Thought Healy played pretty well against a high level of talent. The difference in the frontcourt was pretty apparent Montverde has some good CAA/A10 guys and LaLumiere had a front court that looked like it could play in any of the power conferences.
With the exception of the last week, I thought this was a fun season because we were so young coming into it and expectations were kind of low.
Looking back, in the 2000s I thought we had some good players and good teams that dropped off after certain guys left. In the 2010s I think we have a good program and have shown we can win when the faces change.
Where do I buy a ticket? Do I get my own season seat I normally sit in?
Also, how many rounds in the CIT?
How would any of us know that yet lol. I'm sure an email with the information will be sent out by Athletics. I mean maybe Wednesday knowing their history of communication hah. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow.
As for rounds the link I posted has that information.....

All good lol. It just seemed ppl were getting on him for what he has been doing all year that's all. Agreed they need to harness it, but I guess I also saw others on the team taking the passes and not putting up shots or missing open looks. So I'm not shocked David took so many shots...even if they were forced. I was surprised we didn't have more ppl on the team stepping up to the challenge to score.
Great point. There were a lot of times today where there were six or seven seconds left on the shot clock and they gave the ball back to Nichols to make something happen.
I'll say this. We've had some great guards here, guys like Jamar and Mike Black. Neither of those guys lead their team into the conference championship their soph year. Nichols has.
This is the 10 year anniversary of our 2007 win in Burlington in the AE Championship. I forgot how good that 2007 Vermont team was. They went 15-1 in the conference that year, Beat #14 Boston College and won 20 of their final 21 games until we beat them.
