Re: Week # 10 - Games of Interest

I agree on Fatts taking to the hoops and he is a good foul shooter, so why is he taking so many threes? On both his three point attempts in the SBU game, he was wide open, so maybe the competition is on to his game. As for UMass, both Pipkins and Carl Pierre can hit the three and they have taken a c...

Except Pipkins can knock down threes and Fatts doesn't. In the Bonnies game, Fatts was 0-2 from beyond the arc which brings his record in the nine games since rivalry week, when he put in 5 of 12, to 5-32, 16%. Fatts' playing time is averaging 18 minutes per game, well below the PT of Dowtin and Rob...

I have been consistent on this issue from the beginning - a practice facility is a key ingredient in a top program. And frankly what I think is irrelevant because what counts is what Coach Hurley thinks, what the players think and most important what the parade of recruits think.
