  1. That is funny you say that, cause I used to (loosely) keep track of Barazza & Johnson's +/- to the annoyance of my buddy. Despite the 1 time he dropped double digits last, Barazza NEVER made it in the black. Johnson was not much better either.... That would be a great stat to see for everyone on this team. Who would have the best ratio this year?
  2. Nice! Hopefully we can stop giving up so many easy baskets. In theory I like the full court press and the trapping in the half court but I thought against UMBC we gave up way too many points with passes over the top that led to layups. We can't afford that against a team as good as BUMA. But Gilliam was cherry picking the whole game, right? If UA got the offensive board he would have been well out of position. Yeh...he leaked out the second our shot went up thus beat us down the court a couple of times...had we gotten some offensive boards it would have been a 4 on 5.
  3. I agree with you on Johnson, though I am not sure why anyone would be harsh on Gifford. At times on Sunday Gifford played better than anyone on the court for UA (other than McRae). From the start of the 2nd half until he checked out with 13 minutes left, he busted his ass blocking a shot, taking a charge and making 2-3 solid passes. I think his limited rebounding stems more from always always starting each set from the top of the key (out of position by design?) than getting outworked down low. Granted the guy is tall & unathletic, but I wouldn't lump him in the same "no heart" g
  4. Now this is not meant to be anything more than a question. I do not claim to be a xx & oo's guy, but..... why not take Johnson out of the equation all together? In all honesty, what does he bring to the table? He looked horrible last night, repeatedly getting burnt but Moore time and again. Why not let Ambrose run the point w/ Tartt backing him up there. Johnson is neither a threat to penetrate or create his own shot, so teams key on defending the perimeter on Harris / Ambrose, who then have to resort to having to get "handed" the ball in order to start the set....It's the same

  6. That's Clanton for UCF.. Not Gavin. Did anyone else hear the announcers on the UCF audio feed during the break? about Albany - "We should be absolutely destroying this team. They are terrible."
  7. everything McRae does should be from 12 feet out. he scares me when he gets the ball in the low post
  8. it's not that we have no defense, American is just good at moving the ball quickly and finding the open man. There is so much movement away from the ball on their side...refreshing to watch. It also helps that they aren't missing anything.
  9. what offense... we scored 27 points. According to the AU announcer Johnson 7 Harris 6 Ambrose 4 McRae 4
  10. Will America East refs call that a carry? This is a guard league, so no carry called on that UA72. Now, the header pic of Metcalf above would most certainly be an "Over the Back" call in the AE. Nice pickup for UA. I think after this year we all want a tru PG with a solid Basketball IQ and ability to distribute the ball. It looks like from the little info available that that is what we will be getting. Welcome to UA Mike.
  11. I would take the over on 25 with your lineup any night
  12. I would guess that he is the guy with the handle "I Rock the Cape"...just a long shot
  13. D, I didn't take the count so I can't tell exactly how many were there but IMO there were around 3K there. I was there and the place looked a bit more full then usual. I've also rewatched the game 2 times and I thought the crowd was solid....heck there were probably 100-150 Bing people there. The Box Score on ESPN shows attendance of 3409 for the Bing game...
  14. From the TU Blog - "Raffa seemed to enjoy his first go-around with the vocal Patrick Gymnasium crowd, especially when some fans screamed for a traveling call after Raffa scored on a fast-break layup in the second half. “I feed off the crowd a little bit,” Raffa said. “There are a few trash-talking, but you can’t do nothing about it. I’m just playing … I just waved and smiled. That’s about it. But it’s a good atmosphere to play in.” I was sitting on the Vermont side right behind Wyland and the play by play guys. After the "three step" layup the UVM fans were getting all over th
