[MBB] Game #22: 1/21/18 - 2:00pm - vs UMBC

Recommended Posts

Last Up: W (70-62) vs UMass-Lowell

Next Up: vs UMBC (13-7, 4-1 in the AE...only loss coming to UVM. Beat UNH, Maine, UMass-Lowell, Hartford)
TV/Streaming: ESPN3 (link currently not available)
Local Radio: 104.5 FM
Squeaked by UMass-Lowell. Was a close game for much of the game.
Next 5 games, starting with UMBC, are all going to be super hard and if we play like we did against Binghamton and UMass-Lowell...we could lose all 5.

Didn't really stop Thomas tonight but he has no supporting cast. Lyles on UMBC can light it up and has some help. Could be a long night.

Going into yesterday UMBC had the most made 3s in the nation out of any NCAA team.

 

They have 4 guys shooting over 45% from three and Lyles isn't one of them.. he is only shooting 40%.. (that's like having 4 Cremos on your team + Lyles)...

 

This is could get brutal quick if we don't figure out a way to defend the 3..

Yeah, I'm callin this a loss before it even starts. We are notoriously horrendous guarding the 3 or at least it feels like it.

I try to be level headed and always call it the way it is. I think we win this game tomorrow. UMBC does not defend and I believe Nichols plays better.

 

I think at home we have a real shot. Don't be surprised when we win this game tomorrow. With that being said , don't believe for one second it means we are fixed.

Depends on what Albany team shows up and if nichols can give us anything positive. Bad Albany shows up the one that can't score nor defend and umbc will win by double digits. I don't have a lot of faith right now... Hope for the best but not expecting it.

 

As for umbc not defending... Through 5 games umbc is ranked #1 in defensive efficiency.

Two keys in my mind:

 

1. Nichols has a solid game especially shooting

 

2. Travis doesn't get in early foul trouble

Lol...love how u make crazy statements...ex) saying we were all wrong after a half of the Maine game.

 

I understand they are #1 through 5 conference games . 3 of those against basic Div 2 Maine ... Div 2 UML...and Hartford shot 6/25 from three and missed SEVERAL wide open 3's. Believe me they are not very good defensively.

 

For the first couple of weeks of the season Vermont's RPI was in the top 10. Do you think Vermont was a top 10 team? Of course not.

 

We might get beaten tomorrow but it won't be because of the lock down defense of UMBC.

If you are gonna quote me... Quote me correctly... I never said we were all wrong. Fact of the mater is they are 4-1 and have a defense statistically significantly better than UA... And if you are going to write off their defense because they played uml and Maine... What's our excuse being 4 spots below them and giving up 53pts to Maine in a half... If they aren't good we must be a complete train wreck on D. On offense they are also ranked ahead of us.

 

In case you haven't noticed... This Albany team is not good right now.

P.s. I said none of us know anything... Not that I was saying this albany team was back. I meant that none of us have any idea what team will show up from half to half (case in point Maine in the second half) let alone game to game.

I gotta agree with Click. They played the same teams as us and had WAY better showings. Nuff said.

 

Not a guarantee we'll lose but if we do, I can't say I'll be too surprised. UMBC is better than us. Right now.

I never said Albany was a better team then UMBC right now. I stated UMBC is not that great on D. But if you believe they are the best team in the country on defense (or anywhere close) then I can say nothing to change your mind.

 

I could have done a better job conveying my point which is if you pick a small sample size, a person can twist stats anyway they want to. Ex) I'm not a political person but read an article yesterday that stated Obama did more for the Stock market then Trump between months 6 through 9 of each of their first terms . Lol.

 

Now I'm the words on Click, (quoted correctly I think). LETS NOT SUCK TODAY!!!!!

They beat Maine by 5..and had a 7 point halftime lead. We beat them by 18..and had a 1,072 point halftime lead (I think).

I'm glad we have this game on our schedule now. Home game against a top third preseason team that has played well so far..both in OOC and AE play. It's a chance for us to show if we're on track to still be a top third team in the conference after a rough start..or if we are likely to be middle of the pack. Will be a good test. If we play well..we have the talent to win comfortably. If we play like we did against Hartford, UNH and Binghamton..we'll lose.

The 12-3 occ UA will win this game FACT. The 3-3 AmEast UA will win this game HOPE. We have been able to handle Lyles in the past and I believe we will do so again. I know it is a new supporting cast and not the same UA as in the past; but the past two years, UA at low points in their season went TO UMBC and beat them handily. I believe we will do so @ home today.

 

I believe Nichols is close to getting back on track. He had a good game vs brook; so-so maine, bad bingo. Against mass he was only 3 for 10, but had two threes down in the basket only to spin out & rim out, and was definitely fouled on a break away (not called). He could have easily been 6 for 10 with 20 points. I believe he will RISE to the occasion today.
