Like what I see so far. We need to defend and make the 3, if we want to win this one.

My connection is fine, but I'm actually at ESPN. I guess that helps. :)

Had ESPN3 on the screen via my Apple TV. Got tired of listening to a pro Hartford Hawks broadcast with two homer announcers so I turned it off. If you’re out there Bruce and Marc, this fan misses you guys! Haven’theard an actual CCSU game since they abandoned theBlue Devil Radio Network. Game 1 and I’ve already given up. Never thought this would ever happen.😒

CCSU staying in this - down just 4 at the half.

That was a nice surge before halftime. Team appears to have solid depth and Hicks looks like he has a clue this season.

Around the NEC ..

Wagner getting torched in South Orange to The Hall.

Mount down just 10 at the half at NC State.

Saint Francis drop the game at Buffalo 82-67.

They could have folded and did not. Good sign

I'm looking forward to see what adjustments we make in the 2nd half.

I'm not convinced Gallagher and the Hawks are a legit AE contender this year.

I see this game coming down to a bucket in the final minute - I hoping we are on the right side of this one.

Oh ... and we have to do better from the charity stripe.

50% from the FT line won't cut it.

Is it too early to complain about refs?

For you? Never. ;)

But if we can't hit FTs it doesn't matter.

I like our odds in any game when Kohl is the most talented player in the game ...

Oh yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed the first 6 minutes, but I gotta tell you I'm starting to have a lot of faith in Donyell.

He's recruited a bigger and more talented team than Hartford and outcoached Gallagher. Central wins this one by 8 points!

I think the Blue Devils, as a program, right now are in much better shape than Hartford, Sacred Heart, and Quinnipiac in just his 3rd season.

Still, this team is a work in progress and they need to fix some fundamentals like FT shooting. But damn, this is a fun team to watch and follow.

When Kohl plays within the game, he can flat out dominate. That should give some of the newer guys a chance to play into themselves.

On to Georgetown ... and I'll be there there!

What a TREMENDOUS team win! Haven’t looked at the stats yet but boy was that entertaining to watch! Good team basketball and DM sure did make the right calls when it counted. Batiste is still awful at the line so get that out of your heads lol. There was a Bruce siting at the table but alas no microphone in his hand :-(.

This team truly is a team. Bute was PUMPED at the final horn! Great game! Heart still beating fast! Going home to watch it again!
