Got nervous for a second, thanks to the CCSU team for the tweet. Was rushing home and freaked when I saw some interview and not the game.

Must come away from here with a win. Next game is a L so let’s get the dub!

Again with the opportunity to bury a team in the first quarter and we miss like five shots in a row. Killing me.

Wow - Central looks great.

Amazing how much bigger and deeper we are than the Rattlers.

Assuming these guys are ranked lower than we are...

Loving Colman and Krishnan.

FAMu is going to finish the season with a 300+ ranking. This isn’t a good team, but we are playing very well tonight.

Have to work on the turnovers, but a lot to like from Central. We are 9 deep which is some we haven’t see ever.

Very sloppy 2nd half, but this game has never been very close.

Give FAMU credit for their hustle and defense. This a is a learning experience, but still feeling good about this game.

I am beginning to think that getting off to a hot start with a huge lead and ending up with a sloppy game letting the opponent back in has become an MBB tradition at CCSU! ](*,)

The fact that it even got to single digits with over three minutes kills me. Announcers were annoying as hell. Basically begging for Florida to win. DM has got to find a way to limit the turnovers. Can never just win going away.

Need a point guard next year.

Great first half. God awful second half.

Really hope DM remembers to take Batiste out of a close game towards the end. Horrendous free throw shooter.

Glad we went 1-1 in Jamaica, should have been 2-0.

Not excited about this team just yet. Love some individuals but not sure if they are a home game NEC team just yet.

Much closer than it should have been, but let’s not kid ourselves CCSU was in control from the opening tip. We let them get close, but had more than enough of a lead to not make me sweat too much.

This was a good game for Central. You come home with a win and a lot of stuff to work on. This team will have to learn to control the ball better and hit FTs.

I rather win ugly, than lose pretty.

We saw what we all knew - that the quick PG is a problem for this team. FAMU seemed to be playing with 4 of them on the floor at the same time. The word coming in was that FAMU played great defense, so we saw that.
It seemed that Central thought the game was over with 10 minutes left and almost let it get away.

Krishnan was impressive! He did a great job on their leading scorer. So he is not only a three point shooter. The more I see of him the more I like!

Kohl is a beast!

DM needs to work on breaking the press, because after this game they are going to see more of that. This was a turnover nightmare!

But hey! a W is a W, and if you did not watch it you would think that it was not that close....19 pt lead at the half, and 14 at the end.

That W bumps us up to the upper 2/3 of D-1 teams. Highest we’ve been in a while.

Have a lot of great shooters, but really have not shown a good defense this year. Foul shooting killed ccsu against Austin Peay. And way too many fouls in the games this year. Team has a lot of potential if they can improve in those areas. GO BLUE DEVILS !!!
