    Down 44 - 26 at the half. It is obvious that we have a LONG way to go before we will sniff the top 4 in the league.

    For a team with no size, G Mas sucks at shooting from behind the arc. Kudos to DP for only trailing by 18 at the break. Can you imagine the deficit if PH was still here?

    The call on Boyd was what made me post that. The man is standing there and two RI players leap over them to rebound the ball and Boyd is called for something. But overall it's just been your usual home team slant on driving plays. Every time we drive, no foul. RI drives and they go to the line over half the time. But maybe thats our fault for not flailing when hit.

    Its obvious that GM has a lack of talent. At first I was somewhat taken by the announcers critique of GM, but really they are right. Some of his comments, no idea what they are doing on offense, their defense is pretty much non existent. Turnover after turnover. They just commented how RI is getting easy basket after easy basket.

    I just think DP may be a good coach, but I think he and his assistants can't recruit worth a s.. No coach can win with non competitive players. And yes I think Paulson talks a good game, but has shown little results. Does anyone really think this team is making progress?

    Shooting 34% overall. Just 17% from 3. Out-rebounded by 8. The announcers just killed us. Basically said we are a joke and anyone can have their way with us. Sigh.

    The announcers definitely wouldn’t be welcome on these boards.

    58 - 32. Damn, this ugly. We totally lack elite players.

    When is Paulsen's laid back defense going to start paying off?
    By George. and Walter like this.

    We are soft. Need to recruit a different type of player.

    It was bad enough to be a 17 1/2 pt. dog to a “powerhouse” like URI, but this is just plain embarrassing. I’m calling the AD office first thing Tuesday morning to voice my displeasure.

    I don't see anyone with a mean streak. Have to agree on this count.

    These announcers didn't do their research. So playing Louisville, Auburn and Penn State isn't testing ourselves?

    Yeah - not watching the game due to factors out of my control today- but I was thinking that mean streak was going to have to come from Jaire this year. So far, he seems content just shooting threes and staying under the radar. That is going to have to change if this team is going to have any sort of success in conference play.

    Again - not watching - but, how can you call a 6-7 team untested?

    Ouch - tough game but this isn’t surprising. Rhode Island is a finished product and the best team in the A10. #1 Villanova down by as much to Butler right now.

    Hope we can narrow the lead and cover.

    These announcers have mis pronounced names so many times today.
    College students are taught to do research, these student announcers could take some lessons.
