Solid start to the Conf Schedule... Part 2 of the 5 part UD In-Conference Revenge Tour... UMass won at La Salle today by 7. Let's keep it going and hopefully hit some more shots on Wednesday.

Game is at 8 PM on Wednesday Night on the CBS Sports Network

Starting Lineup:
G 12 Trey Davis 60 180 SR DeSoto, TX
G 5 Jabarie Hinds 60 180 RS SR Mount Vernon, NY
G 0 Donte Clark 64 188 SO Charlotte, NC
F 24 Seth Berger 68 212 RS SO Seattle, WA
C 45 Rashaan Holloway 611 335 FR Elmer, NJ

Their 3 guards carry the team, all average at least 15 a game, Trey Davis averages about 20 a night. Containing them is the key.

Let's Go 2-0 in the A10... Go UD!

Seems like this year their have been more injuries than in years past, both mens and womens teams, mid majors and majors. Teams other than just flyers experiencing setbacks and challenges. Presents opportunities for those ready to step up.

I agree. And to be specific, can Steve stay on the floor in the first half. AM did say at his radio show this week the 5th foul on Steve last game was not a foul. We need Steve on the floor with KP out.

John Crosby is improving each game. So far, he is playing under control and making good decisions. We need him for 10 minutes per game to give Scoochie a rest and to develop his own game.

Evidently the Minutemen haven't gotten the message on moving screens. They have had four of them. Flyers' defense is forcing them to pass the perimeter with not much penetration.

That last 4 minutes was where UD has faltered in the last 4-5 games. UMass went on a 6-0 run to cut it to and 8 point lead. McElvene scores 2 buckets and it's back to 12.

That's progress.

TommyGola
01-06-2016, 08:41 PM
At least up to this point, UMass is shooting the ball very poorly from outside. Given those averages for the three guards, I thought they might be a real threat from the 3-line.

Big Steve is playing a very good game. His team members need to understand that you can't whip passes to him as you might another guard...two errant passes to him, neither one his fault.

Spacing and ball movement better without Kendall. He might pick up a few things watching this half.

Even the best hands can't handle a hard 6 foot pass in traffic. Steve has good hands.

UD with no real stupid fouls. Ok maybe Steve's first foul.

Points off turnovers = UD 17, UMass 2.

I agree, but AM's MO is not to rest them for most of the 2nd half. I'm hoping it's because he feels it's extra important to get JC lots of minutes when he can. Also, he left KD in there for almost the whole half.

Given the limited minutes for some of the scholarship players, the walk ons will not see much court time this year.

I think Archie sees these minutes as too valuable to get the players that are going to be used time on the floor. Gruden is the first walk-on off the bench obviously. The walkons are there for one reason and one reason only and that's practice. At the end of the season, when everyone is comfortable with being on the floor and their roles, then you give them the appreciative minute on the floor. Not only that, it probably doesn't do the the back scholarship players much good to have the walkons on the court with them at the same time.

Just once I want to see them play the last minute with Gruden, Bonsu, Westerfield, Schweiterman and Dupuy. (Sounds like a great law firm.)

Call a timeout with a 25 point lead and one minute left, and let the guys have a minute in the spotlight. They earned it getting beat up in practice day after day.
