[MBB] Game #16: 1/3/18 - 7:00pm - vs Hartford


Recommended Posts

 

 

 

Harford normally shots 32% from 3, shooting 73% tonight.

Seriously??? Youre going to go with that?! Every single person knows what Hartford does!!

 

Mid major top 25 lmao

"I'm going with that?"

 

Dude, I posted a stat that's it lol.

 

It was a fact that at that point in the game they were shooting lights out.

Interesting stat to choose since nothing that Hartford does from deep would surprise anyone.

 

UA piss poor play was clearly a fact.

To me it appears we really don't have that strong personality which could be this teams achilles heel. I'm am not sure if that can be developed. We definitely don't have a get in your face type guy, e

We need someone who will deliver that a hard foul, get in someones face and show some fire. An attitude where we wont back down from anyone. Maybe its just the players coach recruits. Hes always said

Some of you guys have had blinders on. This team has been avoiding disaster for a month. They very easily could be 8-8 or worse.   They rarely show any urgency and believe push comes to shove their

Luckily, the America east will always be a one bid league. Make it into the tournament and we have a shot. Although, a pathetic showing like tonight, will hurt us come tournament home court advantage time. Vermont wont lose many.

Wonderful. Well go 10-6 in the 5th worst conference in basketball. Go to the tournament as a 15/16 seed again and lose.

 

I probably have these unrealistic expectations of what this program can become. Need to stop thinking big and scale back to the smAlbany mentality.

If we played like we did against Louisville, we would have smoked these guys by 30. We played WAAAAAYYYYYY down to our competition.

 

Biggest reason why we lost this game is because we got beat on the boards AND we allowed a lot of open shots (and some that were well defended which still went in). We rarely get out rebounded and we rarely only get 28 boards. All other things were largely equal. This loss was 100000% about effort. Nothing else, nothing more. The refs sucked and had a bunch of head scratching calls where officials on the other side of the court were calling the fouls but the guys who were standing right next to the play didn't blow the whistle (makes no sense to me) but that isn't why we lost.

Looking at the stats, it appears that Hartford out-rebounded us 30-28 and shot 13 for 13 from the free-throw line. They also had 9 blocks!! But we made eight 3s to their nine 3s, so it really cannot be said that three-point shooting led to this loss. Rebounding and blocked shots really stand out.

 

Hartford is not a bad team. They are very active offensively, set a lot of screens, and move without the ball, often cutting into the lane or into the gaps. To beat Hartford requires lots of effort. This is not a team, IMHO, that we just show up and beat by 30. They beat us up on our own floor.

Hartford stinks... Go look at their ooc results. This an embarrassing loss.. Through and through. There are no moral victories here...

This somehow feels worse than the quarterfinal loss to them.

They also play a bit rough inside with that Irish kid and Attia. Clearing out with elbows, etc. That's what had me incensed when Stire was called for 3 fouls on basically one trip down the floor. On the third one he took a charge to make a point and was called for the block instead. People were LIVID at that call.

Any swelled heads and dreamy readings of press clippings should be gone like the wind. Nothing like a first conference game a$$ kicking to get some focus back. Fantasies of waltzing through the AE schedule were just that. I’m sure CB will tear some new ones with the film from this game and use it as a motivation from here on out to March. Let’s see how they respond against UNH. If they cough that one up like last night’s hairball then we will know we are looking at pretenders.

I was hoping CB would say after the game that the team has the flu because that's what it looked like to me. No energy and not much effort. For a team that's been clear they have championship goals it was a surprise to come out of the gate like that.

 

Credit to Hartford. They played like it was the AE Championship game and Gallagher coached like it. They probably already had their scout from last year and implemented it.

Problem is, I believe he's been tearing them a new one on defense and there's no more to tear. They just refused to defend, specifically the guards. They were getting WRECKED last night off the dribble leading to easy drive and dish opportunities. They were flat out gashed last night.

 

Based on one game only and not everyone having played yet but right now UA's defensive efficiency is DEAD LAST by a huge margin at 115.4, Hartford is in 5th place with a defensive efficiency of 102.5. I post these numbers to illustrate just how BRUTAL of a defensive effort this was.

Yeah, I was amazed that Carroll could play like he does for 37 minutes and not get whistled for a single foul.

my opinion in this game, Hartford clearly bothered our guys with their sneaky length and toughness. I also felt once Hartford got up 20, they clearly stopped playing to win the game and started trying to just run clock which helped us get back in the game. I had little problem with the calls once I saw the replays, outside that bogus block on Stire. His issue has always been that he rides the guy he covers all the time and we have to hope he doesn't get called for it... practice this AM will prob. suck big time for the kids but something has to light a fire for these slow starts...finally bit us....Charles did foul on the 3, which is too bad because the shot was going to be missed and was and we would have had a chance to take lead and if we had, I expected we would have won. Hats off to Hartford, hate to say it, but I liked how they ran their offense until that 10 minute period when we made that run....I expect this loss will end up being a positive...GO DANES!!
