UVM has tremendous fan support no matter who they play but it would have been cool to see Slick Rick roaming the sidelines at Patrick Gymnasium!I bet it's a single game, not a tourney. Becker has spoken about wanting to play games there, in the past. Albany is playing in the Tipoff tourney there in November.
No date was given, unfortunately. Who knows, could come down to a couple of dates depending on how other games shake out.Is there a date? I wonder what their plans are since the trip to London to play Marist is off.
CCSU has been horrible the last 8 years, do no surprise we had such a poor turnout. We used to draw well when hosting UMass and winningI do have some questions: are we the only game that day, or is this part of a "showcase" of some kind with other games in a single-day, non-tournament setting? If we are the only game, how well does Iona travel? Because as an example, there was a solid Vermont turn-out for the Saturday night tourney game...but hardly any CCSU fans, and the place felt empty. Even if CCSU had an equal turnout to what UVM showed up with, it wouldn't have filled the lower bowl. So it would be cool if it was a day-long thing with other fan bases showing up (there were some straggler UVA and St. John's fans filling seats for that Saturday night game).
they really should just join the AE.... they play at least 3-4 teams in the AE every year, they play Hartford every year. Hartford finds a way to lose every year against them too...CCSU might not have joined the AE as a member, but the Blue Devils are scheduled to play at least 5 of the 10 members in 2020-21:
Nov. 10 at Hartford
Dec. 11 vs. UMass-Lowell
Dec. 15 at Stony Brook
Dec. 19 at Maine
Dec. 22 at New Hampshire
Slick Rick coming full circle; he’s already been there done that when he was coaching BU. Far fall for him to be at Iona, but probably won’t be long until it’s the best CBB team in all of New York.UVM has tremendous fan support no matter who they play but it would have been cool to see Slick Rick roaming the sidelines at Patrick Gymnasium!
It's a little different when Rick was at BU to who is he now. It's a much bigger deal with him coming to an AE arena today than it was when he was just starting out.Slick Rick coming full circle; he’s already been there done that when he was coaching BU.
