Yale will be tough... They are supposed to be very good and desperate.

Starting off the season @Creighton and @Wisconsin. They didn't make it easy for themselves.

KenPom has this a 4pt win by UA. Considering the home team gets a 3pt bump, this is basically a tossup. Gonna be another tough game.

We have a chance to start off the season 3-0. I don't think that's ever happened before in the D1 era.

Went back to 2001/02 season, you're correct.

We have a super solid team...probably one of the top 5 teams we've ever had talent wise...so getting an early start and getting ahead in the win columns will be HUGE for later in the year. OOC is meant to test your mettle and develop your ability to win, etc. If we can win 65-75% of these games, that'll be GREAT and will definitely be a nice spring board into conference play where, realistically, only UVM stands in our way.


GO DANES!!!

The Memphis and Louisville games will be tough. :)

 

Just keep playing well and improving in OOC!!

Yale took out their frustrations on South Carolina State tonight with a 30 point win.

OT: Stony Brook now knows what it's like to give up a big lead in 2nd half against UCONN. Were up 9 with 5 min to go and let it slip away. Not quite the same talent level on this UCONN team though 😁

Yale comes into tomorrow night's game with two key injuries:

 

Makai Mason: foot, out indefinitely

Jordan Bruner: knee, out for season

 

Still shouldn't be overlooked though, they're good.

 

Also a random note: Kenpom ranks it as the second best game of the day out of the 50+ being played. I find KenPom doesn't do that well of a job accounting for injuries though.

Tickets look like they are plentiful again with a quick look at the site. The place filled up late for the Iona game. Hopefully we get a similar late rush today. Yale is one of the better home opponents on the schedule, even if they are missing some key players. 

 

Didn't we miss getting to see Mason at home 2 years ago as well?

I believe you're thinking of Justin Sears.
