😢 tears. Tears because this is an actual topic 

He did get a three.  Team should be embarrassed.  First win by UMBC at UA in 11 years.

I know I'm not smarter than you so there's no way I can explain it. There were a ton of moments that made no sense. UMBC is improving as the season goes on but we looked woefully unprepared tonig

Against my better judgment.. I'm going to explain my point of view on thing and then disappear again. On occasion I'll log in because people still dm me but it will be pretty rare unless I decide to c

This staff has done Jack sh*t when it comes to recruiting since sanders and singletary. The staff didn’t even have to recruit Cremo as he was going there no matter what. He helped them out there and h

I agree. I have given the team the benefit of the doubt but not next year. Someone on this board (too lazy to look it up) tried to say we are an above average team . We are a slightly below Division 1 team .

Click said this 10 games ago but he is 100 percent right . EVERY SINGLE PLAYER needs to be recruited above. This coaching staff should say every single starting position is open. 

I cant name 1 player that has really improved over last year . Not 1. Someone please help me on this because that's on the coaching staff. 

De Sousa and Hutch with 3 points( a 3 by Hutch). That won't cut it with Clark and Healy also off.  Recipe for a big loss.

That brings up something I have said before that also keeps my promise not to criticize individual players.  The homegrown coaching staff has got to go.  None of those guys are challenging CB, they are yes men, and they respect him so much that they can't say  "coach, this isn't working.  You need to try this.  It worked at my last program."  Oops, wait, UA was their last program.  That's the problem.  

While I am at it, for those fellas here that are UA Lax fans too, notice who the two asst coaches for Marr are?  Two former players and the program has regressed.  Coincidence?  They challenging Marr?  They coming up with new ideas from another program?  I say not.  Nice to be loyal, but in D1 athletics you have to change when times get tough where loyalty may get you fired someday.

Not defending them cause tonight they were awful, pretty sure healy, clark, desousa and rizzuto are all good recruits. Looking back david nichols, travis charles, stire and cremo were all studs recently. Especially healy, kind of comical were in third place in league and people are commenting we dont recruit talent lately? what is it then all luck!? That being said- what is UAs offensive identity? UA doesnt run much and when they do their forwards screen and almost force double teams on the guards. Would team be better with more forced ball movement and hate to say it but less threes

Also to say UA doesnt recruit talent is absurd i think were second to third best talent wise in entire league and except for year after cremo and nichols bailed last minute, ua always has talent under brown. When i say talent i mean compared to rest of the america east, always a top 5 talent team. To say ua hasnt  recruited well is absurd. Did you know a sophmore set the school record for scoring this season LOL!

I'm not saying they are not talented. I'm saying they are not progessing. These guys got a ton of minutes as freshman and I would like you to please name 1 player who has gotten noticeably better from last year to this year? Please name 1. I'm not trying to be an @ss I really mean it. Back it up with facts. 

That's my complaint. Just because you are a good high school recuit means very little as a sophomore.

I tend to agree with progression with hank, i think rizzuto has been disappointing but at least has cane on lately and is a good defender guy you win with. Clark has improved, healy despite a few bad games has moved towards a star, lulka has regressed but could he just be injured.? Desousa has regressed but also has been injured. Team is young but even with loss tonight is still in third place so yes could use lack of improvement but also perspective is key. This is vermonts year then stony brook then thirds up for grabs— recruiting wise program is in great shape whether browns back or not. By the way, will amica is a stud as well.

I love facts: I believe Clark's decision making is slightly better this year but if you look at is STATS, they are basically the same from last year. (I like him and he is our best player). A 40 percent field goal player as a sr. 

Healy STATS are actually slightly lower. Although hurt (and I understand that) , he was a better (statistical) player last year. 

The rest are the same or lower. That's kind of my point, they are not improving and if you look at the FACTS everyone will see that.

They’re young, they’re injured blah blah blah. It’s either put up or shut up next year. Take the purple glasses off for one minute please.

Haha, i can sense your frustration. I guess if you expected them to win the league you can be upset. They are in third place. They will be ok. Its a long season. They didnt play well tonight. They are young. They will be fine. Brown will be back next year, unless he chooses to go elsewhere. They will be a top five team again next year and will also have bad games next year too. They will also have good games. Perspective is everything. Program is solid.

Did you call Stire a stud?  Solid role player at best.  6 points and 5.5 RB’s per game.  And, at least according to others, Cremo wasn’t really here because of recruiting.

Can someone smarter than me explain the end of the first half?  
 

First w Hanks on the line shooting a 1 and 1 we have nobody rebounding?  Nobody?

Then with fouls to give we and 5 seconds left we let a guy into the lane to score?  Why didn’t we foul?

No disrespect, but a top five program in the America East is not saying much.
