  1. I agree with those saying we should not run kids out of the program. There are already enough spots to fill with JUCOS, we don't need anymore. All of these players have desirable traits and the ability to improve. If some of them returned to their freshman year form, this team will improve. If they had played as well as they did their freshman year the team would have improved this year. Now I would love to see a larger step forward than that, but they all have plenty of room to improve. I do think its interesting though how a lot of posters are writing that Rizzutto is one of the kids who should be back no problem, no questions asked. A lot of people here wanted him bolted to a bench halfway through and said he isn't a D1 player. He struggled, but played through it and improved. Same thing a lot of these kids will have to do all off season. Improve!
  2. Last years stats mean nothing as there have been numerous complaints about all the players and their stats this year and their regression. If the stats are facts, I would take Hansen over all of them. He is much more productive in his minutes than Lulka was this year in the minutes he played. Lulka Played the first 3 games then nothing for a while. As stated earlier, we will have to agree to disagree. Give me Hansen ALL DAY against ANY of our other bigs. He will make them ALL look foolish
  3. Name a better option at the 4 or 5 spot. Even in the beginning of the year before all the injuries.
  4. If they are going to give up a scholarship on a one year guy shouldn't they let the guy play extended minutes? If you are going to give him a scholarship knowing its only for one year then you must have identified him as an impact player that is going to move the needle for your team. Otherwise, why do it? You have to let them play. Besides, he is significantly better and more athletic than any other big man on the roster even if he made a mistake every other 4th play.
  5. Someone mentioned in a post that Hansen that has been mismanaged this year. That was on full display last night. He played excellent! I thought Clark was great too. A couple rushed shots but who else would you rather taken the shots? The kid has guts and plays hard.
  6. I think Foster was used completely wrong. He was a talented player who was handcuffed in his time here. He was an impact guy on both ends.
  7. I have always been against the JUCO heavy route we take too, which is why I felt better about this roster going forward. Unfortunately like most of you, I don't feel good about it today. Our starters and core are mainly 4 year guys. Healy, Rizzutto, lulka, hanks, Desousa, hutchinson. Dougherty was a 4 year guy who was supposed to be solid. Thats a lot of 4 year guys getting significant minutes. I thought finally we restocked with 4 year guys who will develop and hopefully lead us into the next good run. Doesn't look like that will happen sitting here tonight. Things could be different next year, and I hope they will be. As for the extension part, not sure how you could extend anyone at this point in time. Unless a real crazy run comes in the tourney and all these sophomores show up and show up big, I think any extension would be tough.
  8. Sadly, his quote at the start of the year was something like, "only people who can score the ball will be in the starting 5. We need scorers on the floor" He has 1 scorer and the rest are complimentary pieces. The one scorer leaves this year and then what do we do?
  9. This offense is brutal. Maybe it is a great coaching job because we are in third place?
  10. A few things to add... I am not a numbers guru and don't dig in to the stats at the highest level, but has Desousa really regressed? I don't think he has lived up to expectations, but I hesitate to say he has regressed. There was a reason he didn't see the floor a ton last year, and he had highs and lows when he did. I am interested to see what next year brings for him. I know many of us are interested to see what next year brings as well. It is probably an all or nothing year. Live and Die by the three is going to make for nights like what happened against UMBC, and also UML. The bigs are pretty brutal on the offensive end. The dropped entry passes into the post are brutal and have not corrected themselves. I know we are in good position to stay in the top half of the league but we hanse't beaten any of the team in the top half. We are essentially the best of the worst, that concerns me. As for Eli and Click... As far I know no one banned them. They can begin posting again whenever they want if they choose. They were HYPER critical on so many levels of these players, people commented on the overall feel and climate of the board, they didn't like it so they took their ball and went home and never came back. Its interesting that people didn't really name names, they just discussed the overall negative and personal vibe of this board, and those two (who smashed and criticized the players harder than everyone) got angry and left. Can dish it out, but can't take it.
  11. Hopefully this is the every game dry spell happening early tonight. YIKES
  12. I go back and forth on this. Yes, we are much better if he is healthy, but staying in the 3 spot would be huge to avoid Vermont until the end and grab that home game for round 1. If it were a team below us in the standings, I would say sit him. For this one, if he can play I think he needs to play. We need to steal this one on the road.
  13. Gotta come out and get up on them early. Don't want to play even or from behind. Defense and rebounding will be key.
  14. I agree here. I have been pleasantly surprised with Hank this year. Plays his role well, doesn't try to do too much and gives the team quality minutes and effort.
