Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

Nothing easy about this game tonight for the Flyers. Illinois St is a pretty complete team. Carmichael is a beast at 6'9" 240+. Have to stop him and a guard that they have that is avg almost 18 ppg. The Redbirds don't have a marquee win yet (UAB and and a pretty bad Drexel team being it so far) but they played at Louisville and darn near pulled it off. Close lose to Northwestern also.

Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

Most people (not on this board) forget the 20 point thrashing that was teh UC game last year before the brawl. I think UC wins in similar fashion tonight. Take the bearcats, give the points.

Lot of different faces for X this time around. How about for UC?

Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

UC has basically everyone back except Gates. Our guards are going to have to shoot well and the bigs need to rebound for X to have any chance.

Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

oversimplified, but I think it's all about rebounding. A strength for UC, a huge weakness for X. Hold our own on the boards and have a shot.

Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

ktabz16 - you are oversimplifying. I have been to two games and watched the others. I can say with certainty that one thing has not changed: the shot selection against the zone is atrocious. In fact, there has been no evidence whatsoever that DK has given the team any instruction/offense against zone defenses. I fully expect any UMass opponent that chooses to play mostly zone defense to win the game.

I am pretty sure that as long as 304 other D1 teams shoot a better percentage from three, the Minuteman Nation will have a long wait.

Really like the way Will Cummings and Khalif are playing so far. Need them in order to be a dangerous team.

Re: 12/19 A-10 Games

Early reports are that the Bonnies received a nice gift basket before the game, including many fancy lotions. I don't know why they all tried them out before they went out though.

Bonnies up, 27-15.
