Outside of 3pt% that line doesn't look that bad to me.
Orating over 100. FG% over 50%. Decent rebound percentage.

#106595 2017-18 Season

Posted by godanesgo99 on 13 February 2018 - 06:44 PM

Best win of the year will be against a team that currently has an RPI of 43, and that game will be played on either March 6th or March 10th.

UA typically tries to make more foul shots than their opponents take.

UA was 8-11 from the line. UVM was 20-20 from the line.

This was the difference in the game. UVM even misses 1 or 2 of those free throws and the strategy and final minutes have the potential to play out very differently.

Full week off now to right the ship. 8-0 in the second half to finish the conference 12-4.

I thought Foster looked very good last night when he was in. He missed a couple of layups being too strong, but I thought he looked great. Then he threw a pass away. Not sure if it was his fault with bad timing or what, but Brown pulled him at the next whistle and I don't think he went back in. I know I am not at practice every day, and I know no where near what he does, but I haven't been a fan of his substitution patter all season. I feel like he has taken a page from Patsos and pulling bench players after any mistake and not letting them get into any rhythm while allowing the starters to make mistake after mistake but he sticks with them.  This is kind of why I wished that Joe missed a game with the injury. It would have forced WB to add 35 minutes to the bench minutes and we could see what they can do in the game situation. I don't think it would have made a difference last night. A loss is a loss no matter how close or how far. 


I'll say it again, that prayer 3 at the end of the shot clock was the dagger that ended the game.

Ball game. Blocking foul that looked like a charge to me.

Not really sure how that wasn't a charge. Not sure how he could have been more set. It was the lucky 3 at the end of the shot clock that ended the game.

I think it was because Costa came out of the game the play before, then the time out, he couldn't go back in until a play had occured. Once you leave the floor you can't come back in until some time had rolled off the clock. 

That's not what I remember but I haven't re-watched the game.
1) Costa checks in
2) One play is ran, Costa is actively in the game
3) Whistle is blown for <some issue>
4) Team comes back out onto the floor, NO SUB CHANGE
5) Costa is told he can't be on the floor, Cochran comes in
Costa never 'came out' until he was forced to come out. As far as I saw from my seat.
It was odd...I was focused on the refs/Brown the whole time it was going on.
Just rewatched it to see of my memory was correct. Anderson and Clark check in with 9 seconds left, hoping to be the one who fouls to not get anyone else in trouble. After the foul, Cremo checks in for Anderson with 6 seconds remaining. UMBC calls time out. After the time out, coach sends Anderson back in for Charles, but no time has come off the clock, so he can't re-enter enter the game until something comes off the clock as he was just taken out of the game. Coach puts in Cochran instead.

Also, hopefully we get good news on Cremo's injury. He walked off on his own, went into the locker room, but came back out to the bench a few minutes later. Didn't return to the game. The team will need him Wednesday.

Not much to say, other than the defensive intensity look pretty darn good today. UMBC is a fast paced good shooting team. Even if they were having an off day shooting, holding them to under 40pts is damn impressive. This UA team gave up 50+ in a single half, against Maine of all teams.

Hopefully this was a coming out party and not a used up everything in the tank before Wednesday's big game.

I'm not ready to jump off a bridge yet. How many days before the fire Will Brown calls start coming back. Jeesh. A $ienaty start to conference play yes, but do we really have this many fair weather fans?

At least wait till we get blown out by UVM to wave the white flag.

#105656 Re-calibrating expectations on the season...

Posted by godanesgo99 on 16 January 2018 - 12:18 PM

Since the team had 12 Non-Conference Wins, the poll seems to indicate that the majority of votes feel that UA will end the season with a conference record of 8-8, 7-9, 6-10, or 5-11. 


At least we have low expectations for the rest of the season.

Anyone giving any thought to the $ienaty scheduling?  Bussing it out and back to Orono,

and then being back on a bus a little over a day later heading to Bing? 


I mentioned that before, and it would have been a great explanation for the poor effort, if it werent for the Hartford and NH games that had the same issues without the travel. I am sure all that time on a bus didn't help, but I am not sure it can be used as an excuse at this moment.

I started the season with a 13-3 conference prediction, which is still possible, but I'm not thinking the team has the heart for that. I'm adjusting to 11-5. A split with Vermont, and one more head scratching loss.

I'll still give Brown the edge in the conference tournament, but my hopes of watching 3 games at SEFCU in March are pretty much gone now.

Could happen if we win out, including beating UVM twice, and someone else beats them, but I'm not holding my breath. Pre season I thought NH would beat them in NH to end the conference winning streak, but I'm now thinking that the best chance for a UVM third loss would be at UMBC as UVM plays there for the opening of the new arena.

Not giving up hope yet, but confidence is definitely shaken.

I wish i could blame it on the Maine to Bing travel, but we've seen this team play like this against Harford and NH.
