UVM @ Niagara 12/16

Not sure what to think about this one. Niagara has 6'3" guard Antoine Mason eligible this season to combine with Juan'Ya Green. Both are averaging 18 and 15 a game. Mason was not playing last year. Mason's dad is Anthony Mason from Knicks and his brother played at St. John's.

That said, Niagara does not appear to have a lot of size, but they have no shortage of talented guards.

No idea how we fare in this one. If we don't continuously give the ball back to them, I think we'll be alright.

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

The guy that killed us was a big named Devon White. I think he is a transfer
who recently became eligible. Aside from his rebounding and. Blocked shots the
Niagra team shot 50% from 3.

Get some revenge for Hartford today.

Niagra has played some good teams and those scores have all been close. UVM will have to control the tempo and not turn it over to be in this one.

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

UVM will need to get the scoring touch back today to get a win. A 53 or 52 point total (like QPac and Dartmouth) will result in an L. Those games were hard to watch. Need to score at least 70.

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

ugh, $6.95 for a poor-quality video feed. Didn't want to risk one of the "free" feeds today, with what I could find. Hope the Cats will make it worth my while!

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

UVM already with some sloppy TOs (travelling, backcourt violation, illegal screen). Arrgh.

It's 5 to 6 after 7 minutes of play. 52 points sounds a lot right now.

Niagra very good at forcing the turnover. UVM already has 7 to's 9 minutes in.

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

The concept of Offense does not seem to be coming naturally to the Cats at the moment.

17-12 Niagara. I think UVM may have more points than turnovers, but not sure. Cats at least in double figures now for TOs.

Did you get the feed? Niagara "forcing" these turnovers would be very generous.

Voelkel just loss the ball out of bounds dribbling, Voelkel tried to whip a pass into O'Day at a million miles per hour, Kilpatrick lost the ball dribbling....just real sloppy play.

On the other hand, Niagara is making no more than 1 pass each offensive possession and jacking up a shot from anywhere on the court. That's the only reason this is close.

Niagar played just air-balled a 3 by a mile. Rusin tries to take it hard to the hole and gets fouled.

Re: UVM @ Niagara 12/16

I'll take a stifling defensive battle against Niagara instead of a run and gun game any day. Just make those foul shots.

Blue can't help us out at the line. Then he fouls a Niagara player shooting a 3.
