Suggested poll question: Against which opponent will UA score its first conference victory in 2018?

Better/hopefully happens Wednesday. Uvm and sbu already up two games in loss column and we are two games into the ae slate. Lose Wednesday and top 2 seed probably gone. Uvm isn't gonna lose many games in the ae and sbu will be up 3 in loss column. I thought we'd compete for the #1 seed and home court in playoffs. Right now they look like the 9th best team.

 

There is very little time to turn the season around and be a contender. #1 seed may have already been lost.

Well losses to 2 crappy teams, and UA stays in the Mid-Major Top 25, but falls to 23. UVM gets back into the rankings at 21

 

I expected worse.

 

As I mentioned in another thread, I don't care about the rankings, but they can help attendance (especially students) and seeding when the team puts it together and and dances into March.

OT: media is going gaga over this kid Trae Young from Oklahoma. He is more inefficient than David. Today he scored 48 but on 14 of 39 shooting and 7 TO. Other day he scored 20 on 8 of 21 and 12 TO's. Kid is shooting way too much but will be a one and done and top 5 pick.

Haha. The guy has a couple games where he doesn't have video games numbers and casual observers are all over him. You conveniently neglected to mention his 12-12 from the FT line..8 assists..5 rebounds..and 2 steals. Still had an offensive rating that game of 117..which is kind of great.

He is a talent but even his coach said after the game that they need to move the ball more. When he gets the ball, no one else touches it enough according to his coach and the pundits on ESPN. He has 4 other D1, power 5 scholies on the court with him.

Well that is odd. The new College Insider mid-major poll moved UA up one spot to #20. Since the last poll we beat UMBC and Umass-Lowell but also lost to Bing. Thought that loss would drop us out of top 25. UVM is at 14.

I think that's because the voters are still voting by what the team can do as much as recent results. That Poll is voted on by other mid major coaches. They know a great team can hit a rough patch.

No idea where to put this, but I have watched it so many times this week I feel like I have to share it on this board as well. This is how the game is played. I made my 8 and 11 year old watch it multiple times and I can not wait to make my sons team watch it on Friday night.

 

One of the best TEAM possessions I have ever seen.

It was against former LCC coach to boot.

I saw this on twitter...that was pure mastery and very rare at any level of basketball. That was beautiful!

The most amazing thing to me was the timing of the play. The slow down at the beginning to start at just the right moment, then pass after pass only to have the dunk with only 1 second left on the shot clock. How many teams would have stopped the movement to get a shot off with 5 seconds left.

 

Just amazing. I know it is "mastery" and I doubt we will see that talent level at UA, but I would like to see the team make some more passes and get the defense more on their toes.
