Wow. One night at the Cheetah Lounge and you're pretty full of yourself.

Re: Around the League

Merry Christmas to all you derelicts.

The Spiders are giving you an early Xmas present by being on the bottom of the league. Don't get use to it.

Re: Around the League

Somewhere around the 30 minute mark is Jimmy Martelli. There is some interesting St Joe's/Philly stuff if anyone is interested. Pretty cool stuff about his dad in 1985 as a SJU assistant, his mom winning 3 national championships and Jimmy playing high school ball with Jameer Nelson.

Re: Around the League

Oh, forgot to mention how Bona was really impressive on Saturday in dismantling UMass. UMass played a far from perfect game, but at some point you just have to tip your cap to the other team. Iím not sure if Bona is always going to play that well, but the game they played against UMass sure looked to me like it would have beaten a typical game from every A10 team.

I was a little worried about a let down after the Syracuse win but they came out focused. Save for one bad stretch, they played a really good game. I would expect this kind of effort in every game. They know what they need to do.

Re: Around the League

^ I was hoping for a let-down after the Syracuse win, but I didn't really expect it. Effort-wise I agree that they'll probably have it for most, if not all, remaining games. My angle was more directed at the level of play and not the effort. Like I said, UMass wasn't perfect and that Bona team is really good on a normal day, but I'm not sure they can bank on that type of performance in every game. Adams and Mobley were on target at a very high percentage on some very difficult shots. Don't get me wrong, whatever a "normal" Bona game looks like is still likely very good, enough to beat most A10 teams having a good game, including UMass.

Yup, but those are the old uniforms. We had a fund me drive to raise 420k for new uniforms. Now with the power U logo.

I hear you. That was the first game where both Adams and Mobley were on at the same time. Jay's first few games back from injury he was still getting his game together. based on that, I dont think they are banking on that every game. They have the 11-2 record because they dont rely on 1 player carrying the load. To me, that is the biggest difference from last season. Bonnies relied on Adams/Mobley way too much and it bit them a few times. This year it is way more balanced.

Re: Around the League

Bona picked up 2 more points in the AP Poll, and is 32nd this week at 7 points.

Bona lost their votes in the Coaches Poll... because they had such a terrible week coasting over UMass, I guess?

I thought that was a designed play by Mason. If Keir improvised that, I'm really impressed.

Re: Around the League

To be perfectly honest after our performance in our last two games(Dayton & St Joe's), I have no expectations in today's game. I don't expect us to win. Three losses in a row takes the air out of this season.

By the way, I was looking at this afternoon's schedule on NBC and the 3 games on from 1:00 to 6:30 are Bad! LaSalle @ Duquesne, St Louis @ George Mason & GW @ Richmond! The league has definitely dropped in quality. Sure hope our programs can rebound quickly in the next couple of years!

I guess I can see why Bona fans have their doubts about you.
