    I can't seem to get back into the article  that 1st mentioned the quotes from CB about Doherty but he also did say that it was a personal family matter.  Hope it's not a serious illness of a family member for example but that could explain why the young man needs to focus on other things than basketball.

    I agree, nysteve, and sincerely hope it’s not a family member or personal illness. Here’s  a link to the article by Pete D., in the TU — Will’s quote is right at the end of the article.

    Not sure but why is he no longer on roster? Leave of absence wouldnt constitute removal from team. May be just speculation but based on his high school accolades and recruitment, riding the oine behind hank, lulka and hansen probably doesnt sit well with him. I assumed he left school based on obvious removal from roster.

    However, Will said it had nothing to do with academics, nor nothing to do with basketball, that it was a personal matter. (??)

    Nothing like playing against UML to get the offense clicking. 

    Congrats to Can Healy for breaking the program single game scoring record.

    Cograts to Fruscio for a nice move. He took a charge (but called for the foul) and probably should have had an and 1

    Nice to see Schafer on the floor

    Hope deSousa isn't out for long.

    “The Frusc” mic-d up... 🙂...

    The TU lists the attendance at 3,891. That improvement in spectators and a win will hopefully strengthen the team.

    In the Gazette article,  Kelly said it was a “sell out.” That must be the capacity with the one set of bleachers now closed.

    Overly irrational? I disagree. Clark is only interested in 'getting his'. That's evident by his A/T ratio (1.16) and his atrocious 40% FG percentage. For a guy who 'attacks relentlessly' his % should be much higher due to presumably higher percentage shots. He's too stubborn to dish it out to the open guy when defenses collapse and instead turns the ball over a TON in the paint as he gets blocked, etc. His A/T ratio should be 2:1 based on the fact that he should be dishing the ball out to the open guy or cutting guy when defenses collapse on him.

    I'm done with him...hope Brown walks him at the end of the year. Just another me, me, me player. Can we get more Hooleys and less Nichols' up in here?

    IMHO, late in the game,, I think they played much better “team” ball when Miller was at the point. There was one play in particular in today’s game—at about the 8:40 mark in the second half—where Rizzuto (I believe it was him) was wide open off to Clark’s side and calling for the ball as the shot clock was ticking down. Instead of passing, Clark kept dribbling and heaved up a last second desperation shot that didn’t even hit the rim.

    Not sure I've seen SEFCU this empty since the CIT game a few years ago.

    Really the department should be going to every school and youth basketball program locally and giving out free tickets to every local player. Give them enough for their parents too. Seat them in the student section. Get more people here and make a few bucks with parking. Maybe get some new fans. Give away 5000 tickets, but only the first 1500 get in free. Or something like that. While the students are out of town it's a no brainer.

    Completely agree — Marketing 101!
