It's not A10 ball if starters aren't in the dog house.
This is the time of year in a college basketball season when coaches and players on struggling teams get squirrely. The coach begins "holding players accountable" or the players begin being lazy or get crazy with iso ball. Things can go sideways or in some cases teams pull together for a run.It's not A10 ball if starters aren't in the dog house.
Probably, if I lived nearby.Im not trying to be a dick but would you want to go watch La Salle?
Ah, the late Jerry Jeff Walker, the pride of Texas and Oneonta (not Olean) NY.It is all a matter of taste. Sometimes I decide to listen to Jimi Hendrix sing Red House then Eric B & Rakim do a little Paid in Full followed by some Jerry Jeff Walker crooning Mr. Bojangles and maybe some Willie talking about Whiskey River. Of course I had probably smoked some cheeba and need to go to bed. La Salle students might have busy nights like me.
I’m not arguing against anything you said, but I thought that the Big 5 was a big deal in Philly?paul, I can't tell if you're being serious or not. La Salle is a moribund college program in a pro sports town with a largely commuter undergraduate population. Sports fans in Philadelphia are concerned with the Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, Flyers and Villanova (in most years). Temple is on the edge of the radar as was St. Joseph's a decade ago. Being the 4th and sometimes 5th best college basketball program in a city is never going to draw interest, even from most of its alumni. Sports fandom is like that in all the major cities of the northeast. St. John's doesn't generate headlines in NYC any longer and Fordham hasn't done so in about 50 years. Boston College, in the vaunted ACC, draws flies to most games. The other D1 basketball schools in and around Boston can't even do that. People in suburban MD are still interested in Maryland basketball, but less than they used to be. The rest of metro DC doesn't give two figs about college basketball. That has something to do with Georgetown no longer being Georgetown but that doesn't explain it all. DC, like NY, Boston and Philadelphia, is almost an exclusively pro sports city even though it is cursed with the Redskins/WFT/Commanders, Bullets/Wizards and the recently dismantled Nationals.
Comparing a school in Spartanburg to the most minor player in Philadelphia is apples to oranges.
