Five years in, one would think we’d have an answer to the full court press. Wouldn’t ya?

Congrats on the win. CCSU is 1-0 in NEC play for the first time since ....

Impressive offensive output. Gotta put it to bed, get a good night's sleep and do it again tomorrow. This schedule is going to be an adjustment for everyone - players and coaches.

Lots of positives for the team to build on.

Per CCSU game notes ...

• CCSU collects its first win of the season, and its first road win.
• Central wins at FDU for the first time since Jan. 10, 2019 (103-96, 2ot).
• The Blue Devils open NEC play 1-0 for the first time since the 2017-18 season (72-68 vs. Saint Francis U). CCSU has opened the last two NEC seasons 0-2.

Wasn't FDU picked for first in the NEC?
Positives:
Points in the paint
Three point shooting
Offense in general

Negatives:
Foul shooting
Defense, not terrible, but there is room for improvement

They were indeed but was that before or after those two kids decided not to play the season?

Tell the truth now...wasn't everybody thinking of which way Central was going to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory?
It sure was nice to see a Central team get a lead just before halftime and then tenaciously hold on for the entire second half. I like the way they had a big play response every time FDU made a run at them.

Points in the paint and good three point shooting is a nice combination! They feed off each other.

As has been noted, last year's team was a pretty good three point shooting team and a year of experience has made them better (hopefully).

Realistically, going into this I would be very happy coming out of FDU with a split, but wouldn't it be nice to win another one tonight?

100% Hill on all accounts. Free throws and turnovers are a bit of a worry. Hopefully they can get a handle on both. Question on my mind is, how well does DM need to do in the NEC to be asked back.

Don’t forget. We have an afternoon affair today and not evening game... 4PM

Blue Devils in the Grey "CCSU" jerseys :)

Slow start for Central - need to make some adjustments early.

Looks like they are going to try and beat us inside. Probably a good idea.
