Yeah, I think that's the best way to put it; "hope".

There is certainly reasons to suggest CCSU could make a significant run up the standings next season (if there even IS a season); Experience, continuity, a league that lost a ton of talent, plugged holes (point guard, rebounding).

Of course, those of you who are skeptical are reasonably so. A lot of good would have to happen for them to sneak into the top 4. But I wouldn't think they'll have to struggle to get into the NEC Tournament next year.

Damn, Donyell is still trying to defend the overuse of the mid-range jumper! This makes me nervous.

Donyell on Twitter; “My question would be. Do you listen to the person everyone says is the GOAT or do you listen to analytics. Cause from what hear so many people say today is. That’s the worst shot in basketball.”

The mid range jumper is good when it is shot by the GOAT (I assume DM is referring to Jordan, who took them with great frequency) because it goes in for a high percentage. Most mortal basketball players do not shoot like that, and for them it is better to attempt a three (for a shooter who can do it at +33%) or a short range shot.
And by the way, imhop Bill Russell was the GOAT!!!!

Bottom line, DM is not a fan of analytics. He’s basically got another year to turn the ship around. I just hope he can do it. Not looking forward to a new coaching staff, a bunch of mass exodus and more losing.

Of course I too am rooting that DM can turn things around. But based on what i have seen my confidence level is very low.
As far as analytics go, they are a valuable tool and I am sure that DM uses them. How could anyone with his experience not?
But I don't have any problem with a coach who occasionally follows his gut feeling.
The only standard for judging a Head Coach is wins.
