In Topic: [MBB] Game #30: 2/24/18 - 7:00pm - vs Maine

Yesterday, 12:10 PM

Ordinarily, I'd have a rant about how spoiled we are to be complaining about how unsatisfying NCAA tournament appearances and 20-win seasons are but I suspect you guys are just trying to irritate any Bing fans who might be reading our board.

 

BTW, a bunch of us were at our most recent NCAA tournament game against Oklahoma. Buddy Hield played right to the end and it was a six point game with a minute left.

 U may think I'm crazy but if I'm Brown I may bring in 2 5th year Srs unless I can get a can't miss JUCO player. Season not over , just food for thought.
 
 
I don't think you're crazy but I'm not sure we need multiple 5th year guys.
 
Our two best regular seasons - 2015(1st) and 2016 (2nd) we had dynamic scoring guards coming off the bench and both were freshman. 2015 was Wheeler Baker and 2016 was Joe Cremo.
My thought behind the 2 proven 5th year guys is this ... we have Cremo and Nicols's. Name the other 3 starters that you feel very comfortable with?

X-No
Campbell-No
Clark- if still on team . No
Conway-No
5 freshman -No

A proven JUCO? Maybe.
I'm not a college coach but if I were Brown u have 2 very good senior guards. There will be very good 5th year guys around . U sell the crap out of those two .

 

I just don't think we can lose sight of that fact that the Nichols-Cremo-Campbell back court is going to have two seasons with 20+ wins. If we had some punch coming off the bench we'd be having a different conversation now.

Coach on post game said Joe was sick (did not elaborate) @ 1/2 time and entire second 1/2. Said we missed a lot of wide open shots, sign of tired legs. Said umbc had a week off before this game while UA has played 3 straight on the road. 

 

 

It sounds like an excuse but that was apparent down the stretch. UMBC was fresh and we faded. It didn't help that against Lowell we didn't put the hammer down and rest our starters but had to battle until the end.

 

Coming into this year with the number of guys we were bringing back it looked like we "only" had to replace the production of Dallas and Mike Rowely. 29 games in it's apparent we haven't done that. Other than shot blocking with Foster, we're more or less the same team we were last year and are going to end up with more or less the same regular season result.

A lot like the Bing loss where we faded late.
