Re: '18 MA PF Chris Doherty

Any potential since Doherty is so young for his grade that he would commit and prep a year? I've never seen him play but obviously a lot of people are extremely impressed by him. Young for his grade? The kid is like 19. He is a great Massachusetts D2 HS player, not sure he will be a contributor on ...

Re: 2015-16 Starting Five Predictions?

Shaolin, I hope you are right. Of course I have truly no idea what GW, Dayton, and Davidson recruiting class has so I'm just going on what I've seen from VCU and how I think Smart's departure will effect them for at least one year. I think they will be back in future years, but you don't lose a coac...

Re: Poll: Does Dan Hurley arguing calls help or hurt the tea

The one thing we don't see in this whole conversation is how Dan relates to this officials before games or off the court. As a coach there are plenty of officials that do hold grudges against you, as Billyboy said "they are human", however most do not and most coaches and officials have go...

Re: 2015-16 Starting Five Predictions?

Really? With VCU dropping what 3-4 teams do you see being pretty much locks, if only 2 would shock you. I am afraid the A10 as a whole will be down and that will really hurt the RPI this year. I am not sure there will be lots of quality wins to get.

Re: 2015-16 Starting Five Predictions?

Agreed, consistency and clutch. How many games were they up 2, 3, or 4 and could have iced games in the last minute only to miss a FT, usually the front end of a 1 and 1, and then have a clutch 3 hit against them? I'd be ok with 65% as a team, but have the ability to hit them when it counts. We can'...

I think you guys are over analyzing this. I really don't think his actions during a game are A. that bad and B. effect any decisions made by officials.

Agree with the starting five mentioned above.

That will limit the depth needed in the bench and some of these freshman can ...

Re: 2015 NIT 2nd Round: @ Stanford - Sunday 9:30pm ESPNU

I think the intensity is great and you can see it in the way this team plays defense. A team is truly the reflection of their coach and this team is no different. I would much rather deal with the issues the refs have when DH rides them then deal with a team that lacks grit and intensity.

Re: This team keeps getting better

What I really like are the scores, the offense always takes a while to get in any new system. I like the fact that they are holding some pretty good teams to lower scores. It's not like they've played terrible teams, or lost to Bryant. They are just very inconsistent on the offensive end and that wi...

I think it's very interesting how different this year will be from last. I think the majority of us over-estimated this team last year and this year it seems the opposite. Let's how the results are the same and we are all wrong again and Rhody suprises us in a good way this year.

Re: Rhody Picked to Finish 15th in A10

It's so tough to get a handle on any predictions when we really don't know half the team and how they are going to transition. I think we all have faith in Danny and his coaching staff but the league is stacked this year and the unknown is so tough to predict.
