#105734 [MBB] Game #21: 1/18/18 - 7:00pm - vs UMass-Lowell (5th Annual Coaches Cure CF)

Someone (even the past) wanted Brown fired!? Boo that man!

Short memory. Even last March our resident manic-depressive Scrabbleship said the loss to UVM meant the clock has reached midnight for Will Brown. (He hasn’t posted since)

Remember it took him ten years or more to get his record up to .500. Lot of doubters even since then, eve after he got the rep for winning the tournament

They also play a bit rough inside with that Irish kid and Attia. Clearing out with elbows, etc. That's what had me incensed when Stire was called for 3 fouls on basically one trip down the floor. On the third one he took a charge to make a point and was called for the block instead. People were LIVID at that call.

Yeah, I was amazed that Carroll could play like he does for 37 minutes and not get whistled for a single foul.

With his outmanned Pittsburgh team well on its way to a 77-51 loss at Louisville, Stallings was overheard getting into it with what appears to be a Cardinals fan or fans.

At least we didnt pay our guys $100,000, Stallings yelled,

Why didn't WB call his last timeout after the missed free throw? Maybe they could've drawn up a play for a 2 pointer and get it to OT. 

Said on the radio, then you have to inbound vs. their length with 6 seconds left. In the past he often lets the veterans play instead of letting the defense get set.

Out rebounded L 52-37. Trouble is you only get offensive rebounds when you miss your shots.

Do we play JMU next year? If so, consider it a 60pt loss. Even if we field a great team next year and win 8-9 games. JMU, as presently built, could probably hang with some of the BCS teams for a good while. Freakin Juggernaut.

Griffins shot 10-12 to start, we held them to 37% over the last 30 minutes or so.

Attendance 2500 was late-arriving but better than expected

We were near the bottom in blocks last year too.

I think John Wooden said blocks are a result of making up for defensive mistakes
