CCSU only down 9 points at the half. Not bad.

Let's see if we can put together a respectable 2nd half.

No adjustments at the half and waits to be down 19 before calling a time out. WTF is the matter with him???

5 minutes into the 2nd half we're now down by 21 :(

We get exponentially worse after halftime. Is it just too much for the young kids or are we getting outcoached?

Granted, Vermont may be the best team we played so far, but this is a theme in all the games played.

We were able to get two quick fouls on their 6’11 kid, it appears we were not prepared for his return. Plus their guard is LIGHTING us up.

So Coleman out, Wallace out, Krishnan out...would this come under the category of "worst case scenario"?

What scares me the most is, how can you field a team that can’t shoot? Seriously? 25%?! On the year they can’t be averaging more than high 30%! They made 20 shots all night. Smh. Tomorrow is the barometer for if we can win a d 1 game. Columbia sucks. They got two guys. If DM can’t make a game plan to stop two guys then we’re not going to win any games , maybe Conn College and I swear if they showboat beating Conn College, I’m walking out and handing my season tickets to Brian and I’m done.

Polar opposite feelings in one day, football makes me happy, basketball ticks me the hell off. Someone fix this train wreck please.

It's not that they can't shoot, they just take terrible, low-percentage shots.

When your offense revolves around dribbling and not going anywhere, it's tough to get good shots. Watch other teams...the ball moves immediately after it's caught. Central is the easiest team to defend.

Confused. Not a stats guy (yet) so not going there but they took the same number (roughly) of threes and twos yet made half as many of both.Stats for the game were very close as well. Are you saying the threes or the twos are low percentage? I did notice one of the warmup drills concentrate on that mid range jumper you hate. Agree on the ball movement part. It’s hard to watch. Maybe if the EE is so proud of their alum in the coaching ranks of div1 hoops, they can get Calhoun or hell even Geno to coach our coach.

Tonight’s game should be super fun without Coleman, heard he was on crutches. Does anyone know when the semester is over and if Krishnan got his gpa up? 😑
