Forgot we have a new scoreboard coming this year. Any word on how it's going to look?

 

What I've been told is substantial and not rinky-dink. Have to believe the $$$ they are spending is with an eye towards using it in a much improved/renovated SEFCU. I believe it goes in next week or week after.

Totally forgot about that bit of news. Great news (again) on a Friday! Maybe it'll look like the Dallas Cowboys scoreboard, just in a 1:8 size ratio lol. I kid.

Didn't Coach Brown at some point say on twitter that it was news to him that we're playing LIU? I took that as a pretty good hint that they're not on the schedule.

Just saw that Siena ranked 91 in average attendance. We averaged lower then 3000 fans. I know we have had this conversation before but this seems to be a good out of conference schedule. Really hoping the athletic department attempts puts a real emphasis on attendance in the upcoming year.

I am not concerned with LCC attendance. As long as they lose it is good.

I think because of your pure hatred of Siena (I do too), you missed the point . Attendance equals revenue, popularity, and much much more. We have had the better team for the better part of a decade. I'm hoping that the administration acknowledges this and are working on improving our attendance because I believe we can average 4000 if we put serious effort toward it. This is an good out of conference schedule . I guess we will see.

Hopefully opening up against a quality opponent helps with attendance. Iona has a lot of new players this season so playing them early might be an advantage as they will probably still be trying to gel as a team.

Should be a great game! High quality and recognizable opponent for the (presumably) season and home opener on a Friday night.

It will be the opener. The college basketball season begins on the second Friday in November. The NCAA is looking into moving that up to the Tuesday before the second Friday in November starting the 2018-19 season.

I haven't seen this posted anywhere but the coaches voted to eliminate the 8/9 game which has not been need the last 4 season as UMass-Lowell has been transitioning to Division 1. Also the playoffs this year will span 8 days as opposed the 11 the last two season. The Quarterfinals will be on March 3, the semis will be on March 6 and the championship will be on March 10.
