UVM @ BU 1/8/13

Case gym Tuesday at 7pm. Will be a good conference road test against BU. Need to play with the same level of intensity on defense as Albany game and take care of the basketball on offense. Our big men will be key in this game- they need to step up when Irving/Watson get into the lane (which they will, let's not pretend they won't) and on offense hopefully we can get shots inside and wear down the Terriers. Need to make sure Papale and Robinson are defended closely as well from 3.

Should be a good game. Sam- don't know yet whether I can grab food/beer before the game. Our nanny is out of the country right now so I might be going with the fam. Will let you know. We should do that at some point though, it's pretty long overdue at this point.

Re: UVM @ BU 1/8/13

After watching BU run out of gas and blow the lead vs. Hartford, while on winter break, and having no other commitments, I'm pretty nervous about this one. I expect a UVM win, but will be there cheering regardless.

BU sucks, but so does UVM. UMO will win the conf title over SBU

Home court advantage, I'd have to think.

Road wins are tough in conference.

If we play like we have been playing, I think we win, but our challenge has been maintaining our effort and intensity. We're probably due for a letdown.

Re: UVM @ BU 1/8/13

I've never seen us not bring intensity against BU. A UNH or a Binghamton? Definitely. But not being ready to play BU? I haven't seen it.

BU is probably our true rival in mens basketball, and given this is the last time we'll be playing them on Comm Ave for who knows when again, I can't imagine we don't bring the effort and intensity.

There's a lot of different ways we can lose this game, but I don't believe not being ready to play will be one of them.

I'd be very disappointed if this was it for BU-UVM. Remember, when they were in different hockey conferences for many years, they still met every year in what was usually the home opener for one school or the other. Maybe they could have a similar arrangement in hoops, hopeful alternating with the NU game (so home-UVM, road-NU then home-NU, road UVM in alternating years). That was the arrangement with UVM & RPI most years in hockey.

Re: UVM @ BU 1/8/13

I think BU has to force a lot of turnovers or make a lot threes to pull out the win.

This season has been a little disappointing due to the number of close losses and blown leads lately. Hopefully they can play a full game and get the W.

I would be as well- I see no reason why BU/UVM wouldn't want to play each other every year in hoops. But, I felt the same way about Northeastern and they didn't play us again for 6 seasons post-04-05, so I have no idea how it will play out.

Re: UVM @ BU 1/8/13

I would hope that BU would bring the attitude of a wounded animal backed into a corner...but who knows what their mindset will be. Do they think they have nothing to play for now? Will they just pack it in? I really would like to see them fight & claw all year to try and get back into the race and I'm sure the coaching staff will try to instill that in them, but will it work?

This game will give us a pretty good gauge because if they lose this one, they can kiss the regular season title goodbye...

Even if they blow the regular season title, BU should be pretty motivated to get into any postseason tournament, even the CBI or CIT. They have to go at least 9-5 from here out to be even eligible. Dropping another home game this quickly would really put them on the brink.

UMBC, Bing and Stony Brook are far enough that they likely don't want series with BU anyway.

Never said they wouldn't, simply said it was the last meeting on Comm ave between the two as America East or inter-conference rivals.
