Re: Rhody and A10 in the Top 25 Polls: 2017-18

We should not move down much as a result of losing a game in Olean when we had multiple legit shots to force overtime. Unless of course the whole thing is a sham.... Cartel. We'll drop four or five places. And speaking of shams, I can't wait to see Li'l Kevie's ballot. I would give 2:1 odds that Mc...

Re: 2/20 | La Salle Explorers | 7PM (CBSSN)

Whether it is must win or not, I expect Rhody to roll. Explorers were trending toward a top-100 RPI team when we met them in early January, but they have fallen apart a bit since. And they're in a tough spot Tuesday with a URI team coming in feeling like they have something to prove. They are in the...

Re: 2/20 | La Salle Explorers | 7PM (CBSSN)

Depends how you define "must win." Certainly if they lose, the season is not over and the most important games of the season are still ahead of them. So it's not a "must win." But, I can anticipate what the world in which we lose on Tuesday would look and feel like, and I'd prefe...

Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

I still don't like trying to protect a lead with 4 or 5 minutes left. All you end up doing is forcing a shot as the shot clock is about to expire. I'd rather keep doing what we're good at and go for the throat. If we're up 3 or 4 with a minute or so to go, fine. But I think 4 or 5 minutes is way to...
