    he hit the bench w two fouls and then they’ve been sticking mostly with an AJ/miller or Aj/mar front court with a little Calixte

    I'm sure it has a lot to do with the fact that every St. Joe's player launches 3s, including all of their forwards.

    It's also nice how we constantly do something good (XJ forces offensive foul), then a series of bad t hings right after: Greene illegally screens and then turns it over on back to back possessions.

    Another one: Greene extends the lead with a 3...force a missed shot, gives up the offensive rebound, then AJ Wilson offensive foul and giving up 2 shots the other way, and now another and-1.

    Just so much lack of poise and discipline.

    preach, and yeah I suspect that’s why he’s not out there. They need some athleticism to get out on shooters quicker.

    Against the worst team in the A10, their star player on a bum ankle and we need last minute heroics to win.

    Really doesn't help when you get 4 points out of your 5 spot, and your starting point guard goes 0-3 from the floor. 15 TOs also doesn't help...

    Hartwell had a good game off the bench, though.

    Really doesn’t help when you have terrible coach either. Call me crazy, but that’s the real issue

    It was good to hear the crowd get into it once Mason finally woke up.

    Well, it was nice to see a win at home albeit against a really bad team. I'll take what is given to me at this point.

    Had a good time at the game and seeing many familiar faces around the arena at brions and in the gold room. I’m glad the students showed up but man, there’s a culture issue in terms of cheering and standing up. It’s basketball not a movie.

    anyway, they looked much better in the second half than first half and got the win. Happy to see that. I liked the AJ/Miller 4 and 5 combo a lot and Mar had some nice fill in minutes at the 4 as well.

    I’m glad to see Hartwell hit some key shots down the stretch and that Greene found his rhythm in the second half as well.

    it’s certainly been a struggling conference season to say the least. I look forward to seeing the guys in person again at Fordham.

    I'm just happy to walk out of Homecoming with a win in front of a decent crowd, regardless of the competition. I also like the small lineup in the second half. It's encouraging Dave actually knows how to adapt in-game.

    It's just too bad Oduro and Calixte can't carry over their unused fouls against Dayton. They both might end up following out in the first half against Toppin Tuesday night.

    AJ’s stat line today: 13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 blocks, 3 assists

    Amazing how much he has improved in one year’s time.
