Gally filled up a bit. Most of the students are sitting in the sidelines. Let's hope for a better half.

We laid an ugly egg tonight on home court. It’ll get tougher on Sunday against Qpac. It wasn’t just our size disadvantage, but more lack of energy.

This is exactly how the last few years went. No energy. No driving to the hoop. Too many 3 pointers due to laziness. These are 18-22 yo young men, playing on a very familiar court. W.T.H. !!!?? Why is the team regressing? Even if outsized, it's OK to box out.

Would like to hear from attendees and players. What was the body language like on the court and bench??

Man, John Dunne can really coach defense. #15 ate us up inside. Had no answer for him. Hurt that Kuak was in foul trouble. Couldn't count on his inside presence on both ends of the court. Definitely a different energy level to the team than we've seen throughout the season. Combine that with a poor shooting night and it was the perfect storm.

Rough night. Marist was tougher and more aggressive on both ends.

Dunne's defense was perfectly suited to stop Niagara's screen action at the top of the key. NU's guards were swallowed up every time they peeled around a screen.

NU didn't really get anything going consistently until it went with five guards and started driving baseline in the second half.

Thanks Mike and Suge for the game reports. 1065 was the announced attendance last night . As mentioned , when our shots are not dropping, this team becomes very vulnerable due to our lack of size which leads to few if any second looks.
