Re: Super Bowl Sunday

Like most games that season , it was the freshman game that generated the most interest . Two of the three best freshmen in the nation going head to head , a stark reminder of the dramatic decline of NU basketball over the years . Of course Pistol Pete Maravich was regarded as the best freshman . I ...

Re: MBB AT ST PETERS JAN 22

With Noah as the main ball handler he has to hit those free throws , if not he'll be a liability late in the game when NU has the lead . As many close games that NU seems to play , they don't have the luxury of missing free throws . Glad that they were able to get back in the win column , hopefully ...

Re: Niagara at Air Force : 9.00 pm

Even when NU was winning , it seemed as though they were always being out shot every game . It's only a matter of time before that comes back to haunt you . Hopefully the defense steps up in game 2 and we come away with a split .

Re: MBB AT RIDER JAN 20 7PM

It seems every game we play comes down to the last minute . On the positive side , it was great to see Iorio have a good game . It was a disappointing loss , but NU has shown they can play with everybody with exception of Iona .

Re: New MAAC Tourney Site ?

I like the idea of the earlier rounds being played on campus . Attendance is usually pitiful unless it is hosted by Siena in Albany . Also , playing on campus will increase the chances of the MAAC sending their best representative . The regular season games will take on more importance .

Re: Marist @ Niagara : Noon ESPN+

The announced crowd of 711 was off by about 600 . Dave you're absolutely right about a loud enthusiastic crowd making a difference . I recall a time when visiting teams dreaded coming into " The Student Center " because of the crowd and atmosphere . NU's crowd was truly their " sixth ...

Re: BENTLEY AT NU JAN 14 5:30 PM

I don't understand their inability to be a dominant home team . This series would have disappointing if it had been on the road , to get dominated as they did by a bad team at HOME is unacceptable . It just seems every time it looks like the program has turned the corner , they always stumble mighti...

Re: HOCKEY HOSTS BENTLEY FOR WEEKEND SERIES 5PM FRIDAY

In reading other message boards of schools using Flo , reception is very spotty at best . Not even close to ESPN + in overall performance . You would think that a conference trying gain influence would do whatever necessary to expand their exposure .
