  1. I'm not sure whether this thread's primary theme is to support Will's record or to fire Benson. Quite frankly, I am all about the school, its reputation and standing. The deed is done. MB should be talking to donors, the players and the public. Better yet, this national search has to be done expeditiously and a new coach introduced. I hope the new coach will see the wisdom of defining a role for Jon I.
  2. Need to get in rhythm...so far so good. AC- better passing!
  3. Sorry for the late review. We are a better team when Tuna (Hank) is in against smaller teams. He defends well and we saw some determined moves in the opening minutes. Now don't go hostile, but I think he would do a credible job shadowing Lamb. Clark is the tale of good and bad play. We need him, except when he enters me zone. When we need a charge, no one better. This was apparent the last half of Columbia and in the Maine game. Keep it up. Cam had an off shooting day, but most of his 3 point shots were made when he was open. Healy so made a couple of nifty passes to Hank.
  4. Bad shooting and no offensive rebounding was the story. Regarding rebounding: we simply are not in position. Lowell had three or more crashing versus our one, typically on the short side of the rim. Our offense has a lot of wasted motion around the perimeter. 3 point shooting was maybe 50-50 of reasonable open shots versus being defended. But.. no one following shots or having bigs to rebound. Definitely a humbling game. Guess what? The lanes and underneath was open. Lulka did a good job. Malachi showed his talent on defense. He made a 3 and also made one strong move to the
  5. My take. We went stale once Clark was sitting. Hated to see Lulka patrol from the perimeter. Little penetration until.. Clark re entered the game and became an effective foul line post. I think getting the ball in that position was something new( and good) , which may explain the poor shooting. Surprised he didn't take it strong to the hoop ever so often. Give Healy an open shot and he will convert. Glad to see him and the other guards attacking the boards for rebounds. Both Lulka and Hank must get stickier hands and stop putting the ball to the floor when a strong move up will do. Lul
  6. We were an inch from the turning point. I'm not frustrated because our goal is to get shaped up for the AE playoffs and I am confident that we will make the final 8. Hank, Rizzutto, and de Sousa earned high marks. Healy demeanor shows determination with hard nose defense. CB made some great moves. He kept de Sousa in and wow we saw some flashes. De Sousa can be a monster on defense as well. When Hank is on the floor we are different. He patrols the rim area. Last night he got 6 offensive rebounds, which is so important with a 3 point shooting time. Quite truthfully, he should keep H
  7. I'm new to the board but have followed our team for years. Regarding defense: I cringe when our 5 is above the foul line and our point is left with their 4 or 5 underneath. Hank moves well but his game is patrolling near the hoop. Trying to trap out front should be the exception, not the rule. Can't count the number of times our bigs leave their post only to have the ball dumped in for an easy layup. Also, BU moved the ball well. No unnecessary dribbling... led to solid looks. If we play zone, need to move faster- Can not allow easy three point looks. BU was exceptionally hot in the
  8. Well, in the TU today, Joe thanks everyone except WB. This is not a slight against WB. Joe needs a family feel which is not part of business of the Div I basketball. Good luck to Joe.
  9. This is not a zero-sum topic. Congrats to UMBC. UA is not lessened. UA can use this to get over any hump that we seem to place in front of us when playing up. We can beat Vermont et al. What UMBC showed me was 40 minutes of staying to plan. I don't think Maura was more than 3 feet from his assignment all evening. You bet Muara bothered them. That was the plan. Coach Brown should have the same take away, IMO.
  10. My hat is off to UMBC. Had a game plan and stuck to it for 40 minutes. Game shows that there are no excuses going forward. All teams can be beaten.
