Re: 1/6 | George Washington Colonials | 4PM

The playing time will be a game to game thing. Berry cannot keep up with quicker bigs so his playing time will be less against those sorts of teams. GW had some size but is slow and therefore our bugs were highly effective

EC seemed to get a lot of rebounds too. Fatts has hit the wall. He'll play thru it. The defensive intensity was there the entire game. A little lackluster but a win. Akele and Preston helped tonight in their limited minutes.

Joseph ski I don’t know for sure and that is an important factor. Regardless of what the season ticket deal is, I think it is a neutral game. I believe the UConn situation in Hartford is similar and I’m not sure how those games count.

I think we should try to do the home/home Mohegan thing every year, with new P5/high level opponents. The casino gives teams coming in a reason for their fans to travel. We get a home court advantage, at a neutral site. To me it's a win-win for us.
