Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

Even through my moaning and groaning I still feel somewhat confident about our chances to win this league. Especially , with the performances of some of the other teams. Agree on Richmond for sure. Even before VCU lost these couple of games, I didn't think they were a huge threat, at least to be th...

Re: How should Hurley handle Holloway?

We had multiple outstanding sequences of help defense by Akele and Iverson that resulted in turnovers or offensive fouls. He had 20 not 30 and fouled out. We handled him fine. I love his routine at the foul line, a little goofy but repeats it and shoots with good form, touch and spin. Impressive pos...

Re: Game 17: Massachusetts, Sunday Jan 15, 2:30pm NBCSN

With all due respect I was right behind the bench upstairs and Hurley coached his ass off today. Many adjustments we have been screaming for are occuring..... We finally threw the home run ball at the end which was good, but I can't blame a HC for expecting his team to make foul shots. 7 out of 8 mi...

Any time you have the ball in transition with the defense running back or even better backpeddling you push. At times this club pulls up and goes into three man weave drill. It's maddening......especially with athletes and the open court skills we have. I expect it will change tomorrow afternoon. Bo...

If URI doesn't flip this around in 2nd half this is a season ending loss. Teams that get beat this badly in their own building by inferior opponents cannot get off the bubble in March. No chance.
