    UMass would be foolish to not get the ball to Holloway every time down the floor. At 6'11" and 310 pounds the kid should have a field day in the post. UMass by 10.

    I wish this game was later in the season. McCall's teams usually get worse as the season progresses. What a horrible hire.

    And we'd be crazy to try to collapse on Holloway once he gets the ball deep in the paint. Just cover up the damn shooters and let Holloway score 30 points!

    UMass is a team we should definitely go small against and use Holloway’s size against him.

    Spread the floor and put the UMass bigs in mismatches trying to guard out on the floor. Should be a layup line.

    I guess you haven’t watched the last 3 games.

    Guilty as charged, but I don’t think it is relevant. If you are saying, on a relative scale, we should go with our smaller line up, well yeah I get your point. I wouldn’t call a lineup even with Calixte in it big, though. We seem to have a small lineup and an even smaller lineup.

    I get your point and don’t disagree, although
    6-8, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4 and 5-10 is actually a taller lineup than the one we played with last season.

    Gotta get this W. Their big man is big but is not good. AJ and Greg both get up and defend him.

    The A-10 updated their website, this is a premium game.

    That's hilarious. Even UMass and Mason fans don't think this is a premium game.

    Fun fact: Umass' has former Hewitt protege and former Jacksonville coach Cliff Warren on staff. Brad got rid of Cliff Warren in Jacksonville.

    This should be more of the type of game that Mason should be able to win. But never know with this group. I'll stay positive though.
