Re: Vs Holy Cross @ The Det 7 PM - 12.1.21

Right now, both Kenpom and Torvik project us to finish 5-13 in the league. I'd take the over on 6.5 wins, quite frankly. 7-11 would get us into the NEC Tournament, and I think that'd be a nice jumping off point for next season. So you're saying we have a chance! I like your optimism! It is encourag...

Re: Vs Holy Cross @ The Det 7 PM - 12.1.21

Great game! this team is going to get better. The front court of Snoddy and Brown could be the core of a NEC contender in a year or two. I know Snoddy is kind of a hybrid 2/3/4 but he seems to be able to hold his own in the paint. Right now I like this front court better than last year's. On one ser...

New Britain State Teachers College (as they were called by the media) Yes, that name was commonly used by the general Connecticut public. But that was never the official name. At that time it was Teachers College of Connecticut . According to Images of America: Central Connecticut State University ...

As a whole this could be a great recruiting class.

Re: Vs Fordham -1st Home Game at The Det! 1PM 11.28

-CCSU-4: yes Jayden Brown looks to be the best freshman big man since Corsely, although that may be a tough comparison to live up to. His presence in the lineup changes this team. He is tall, has some bulk, and is very athletic. I expect him to be an NEC force in the paint, and he is going to get ev...

Re: Vs Fordham -1st Home Game at The Det! 1PM 11.28

Tough loss. One thing, with 15 seconds left in the 2nd OT and 6 points down, why does Scantlebury take a lay up? I mean the game is probably lost, but you have no chance if you take the layup other than hoping for an old fashioned three point play. But the Fordham players smartly stayed away from hi...

Re: 2021-22 NCAA scores/updates

Didn't Central beat East Carolina from the American Conference (albeit the worst of the conference) during the DM era? Tyler Kohl had a great game. Also, haven't there been wins over A-10 teams other than UMass? La Salle during the Vinales era? And the one time Central got UMass into Detrick it was ...

Re: 11.23 @ Maine

Nice win!
I am impressed with the freshman. Especially Snoddy and Jayden Brown, also Sweatman, who is playing like he belongs here. He reminds of that little PG that Mount had a few years back.
Tre Mitchell put the game away at the foul line, nicely done.

Re: 11/20 - vs. SFU (Senior Day)

I know you are what your record says you are, but this team is a lot better than the record indicates because they really suffered by having a year off, and it took awhile to get back in the groove. The team we saw yesterday was a very good NEC team and the team that opened the season was a crappy N...

Nice way to end the season! Zoppi with a FG for the last play of the game.

Re: vs NCSU at Mohegan

In a recent interview with Sellers, (I think it was linked to on another thread) Pat said that there were some players out for medical reasons. Illness? I don't know. But that might explain some of the players in sweats or absent.

Don't attract her attention, because if she does anything it will be to go down to D-3.
