Re: Wagner

Was Berryl coaching last night? Tough tough loss again... ugh... No, Reeves was in charge. This was one that got away. They had an 8 to 12 pt lead for most of the game and then the first 6 or 7 minutes of the last period were scoreless for Central. I really cannot blame the coaching, Central just s...

Re: Wagner

Agreed JJ, the win was nice. Especially since it was a double header win. But the problems still remain for both the MBB and WBB programs.
After all they shot 46% from three, and that is a rate that cannot be maintained.

Re: Wagner

Taking a lot of threes and making a high percentage (24 shots, 11 made for 45.8%) won the game. Krishnan was a spectacular 5 for 8 from three. They need to take and make threes. The team is making threes at a 34% rate for the year. That is pretty good . It is the equivalent of shooting 51% for two p...

Re: @ FDU

Predictions: 1) This team doesn't win a game for the rest of the year. 2) Multiple players announce they are transferring out at the end of the season 3) CCSU and DM come to a "mutual agreement" to part ways at the end of the season. That looks like the direction toward which things are moving! Num...

Re: Patrick Sellars

Hi ktuck, Hopefully the powers that be forgave Pat for that violation years ago.. No need for him to be forgiven, he did nothing wrong. The NCAA exonerated Sellers. see: http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/blog/_/name/katz_andy/id/6631709/after-chinese-exile-ncaa-cleared-patrick-sellers-gets...

Re: Patrick Sellars

I think that Patrick was the pick for many here, maybe even the majority, to be Howie's successor.
But the problem is that nobody expects Central to be looking for a coach next season. Maybe the season after that, but then who knows if Sellers will be available or interested?

Re: VS SHU 1/15/2020

hi CCSU 4-3, Okay, we have to agree to disagree! I am not going to push this point after this post. I am not a BB expert, but have watched enough to recognize a problem when I see it. As in football the athletic skill guys look a lot better when they are playing behind big men in the trenches. The p...

Re: VS SHU 1/15/2020

Yes, i have not noticed a lack of hustle. Just the opposite, the players are giving a max effort right until the inevitable end. It is more of an eyeball test, and right now I am still seeing good effort. But yes, losing can wear down on the psyche of a player. That being said, I do think that Centr...

Re: VS SHU 1/15/2020

Halftime: 22 points Down 12 reb in the first half. That is a rate for SHU of +24 rebounds if they can keep that pace for the 2nd half. SHU has more Offensive Rebounds than Central has defensive rebounds. In other words when SHU misses a shot more often than not they get a 2nd shot. You don't have to...

VS SHU 1/15/2020

I have gone to many games at SHU, but then we had at least, an outside chance to win. Does this team have any chance of winning tonight? It seems to me that the 2019-2020 Blue Devils when playing at their best.... are good enough to lose by single digits. They seem to be able to hang in there for aw...

Re: I know things are bad

I was sitting with some people and we were having a conversation which had the tone of most of this thread. A lot of frustration was expressed, myself included. And as the final seconds wound down a nice lady whom I did not know, was apparently listening in on our conversation, came over to me and s...

Re: I know things are bad

Rebound Margin per Game...... -8.7 (Overall) -------------------------- -9.7 (Conference) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- That is really bad! These so called "Power Forwards" are getting dominated in the interior. And yes, the three point d...

Re: I know things are bad

BB, You are right Kohl was 6' 5" but he was a better PF than anyone there now. He led the team in rebounds. He was an exceptional talent in that he really could play four positions. Too bad, there was a big negative side. Again, it is not all about height. If you note, I wrote about the "eyeball" te...

Re: I know things are bad

Yes, I heard that too. The announcer was puzzled and asked why is Central sticking with a 2-3 zone instead of a 3-2? and he commented how LIU was content to just pump in threes. But I think the bottom line answer is that Central is too small, especially with Wallace in a boot. They are basically pla...
