Re: Game 2 : 4:00 PM -Niagara at Manhattan-ESPN+

Didn't tune in. I'm not convinced they learned much from last year. Certainly they are not playing like veterans/upper classmen in a conference that's not exactly stacked. Was the FG% due to taking too many bad shots? In the past, lots of 3s got jacked up vs. driving to the hoop and hitting the open...

Re: CELEBRATE LEGENDS

Nice to know he's still out there, loving life. He came a long way from Seaton Hall HS on Long island back in the early 60's. Hubie sounded like he was ill on the broadcast- very hoarse. Hope he's OK. Love the way he digs layers deep on a game and sees it all, like only a former coach can. Thanks J ...

Re: MBB FFD GAME TWO / Gazette Story

We saw a few instances of very good defense and that can be built on. Three point shooting was impressive. The better D 1 teams go inside-out on those shots to free up the shooter for an open look. If the team can establish one or two men with decent post moves, that can draw double teams and more o...

Re: MBB MAAC OPENER AT ST PETERS DEC 11/12

Poor free throw shooting, failure to hustle in some key moments. Disappointing finish, but they hung in to the end. They should have won. Offense seems a bit iffy so far.

Re: MBB MAAC OPENER AT ST PETERS DEC 11/12

What's the story with "color" commentators and grammar? The broadcaster on the telecast is killing the English language. I noticed it last night too. Don't know if it's the same guy or not. And it's not just college games. Brutal! Let's hope the Purple Eagles shoot better tonight.

Re: SU over NU : The knee

Not a good thing and not thought out. Wondering if there were a military veteran on staff if they'd allow this. I'm not a veteran but am currently the president of our community military support club. We aid & support Georgia veterans, active duty and families. Some veterans we have or do suppor...

Re: 2020 Schedule

Great that there's a scrimmage before a Div I game. Some schools did not or will not get that chance.

Re: MBB NATIONWIDE / MAAC Schedule

Stags have a player named Cruz that looks pretty good, even against a tough team. Don't know how many points he ended up with, but had some very nice moves at the hoop and at least one very nice pass inside.

Hoop Practice Status

What is the time frame for mens' practice sessions? I assume they've started. Any info on what's going on there?

Re: MBB NATIONWIDE

The article on Arizona states that head coach Sean Miller stands accused of not supervising his program. And, it's alleged that he paid monthly cash installments to his center, Ayton while he played there. This could really blow up on the program.
