    Wow, and I thought they'd reduce the number of available tickets due to Covid. About what I'd expect during a normal year...

    I used to like G Mas men’s hoops. They are a freaking continued disgrace.

    Norfolk State just did us a huge solid. No way to excuse that BS when it comes time to decide whether to extend or fire Paulsen.

    There was a point there in the second half up 14 where I let myself think alright, maybe we're working with something here

    That's on the short list of worst losses of the Paulsen era. Just awful.

    Beat me to the punch on that one. I’d have guessed around 150 tonight, tough to tell the side of the court we sat on though.

    Went to Brions before the game for a few beers, I feel for them the pandemic has to be crushing them, only 6-7 people in the whole place. They’d be a great candidate for the Barstool fundraiser that’s going on for small businesses right now.

    @Patriotsince81 if you can broker a phone call, submitting a video for some assistance (they’ve raised over 6 mill for restaurants like brions) might be a great move Brion. That place looked rough tonight. Jack sticks still good but the burger was 10x worse than I’ve ever had at Brions

    Awful final 15 minutes of the game. Maybe the worst loss I've seen from a DP coached team.

    Going into A-10 play, I think DP needs to shorten the bench. I'd start the following players and have them all play 30-35 minutes per game.

    Starters

    Kolek
    - Best player on the team right now.
    Greene - needs to get more consistent although his whole career has been marked by inconsistency (shooting 18% from 3 - just awful)
    Miller - needs to step up his game on both ends of the floor and play like a team leader
    Wilson - It's his 5th year in the program. He needs to get his head out of his *ss and play like a top-tier A-10 player
    Oduro - second best player on the team right now (because Miller has been absent the last three games, including his performance today)

    Bench

    Calixte
    - spot minutes for Oduro/Wilson
    Johnson - spot minutes for Kolek. (XJ is shooting 11-20 on FTs and 32% from 3)
    Hartwell - move Kolek to SG when he comes in for Greene (JH is shooting 26% from 3)
    Haidara - spot minutes for Miller/Wilson (the kid plays hard and brings energy. He has a nose for the ball while rebounding - limited on "O")

    Polite - The game needs to slow down for him. Watch and learn.
    Henry - If Oduro and Calixte get in foul trouble, he's in.

    That's it.

    The season starts for real at UMass on Wednesday. It's put up or shut up time.

    Was just talking tonight with another poster. We want Javon to run the point and TK to play SG. XJ and Hartwell take too much away from different lineups to play them together and I want JG to fill the role. Plenty of handles to do the job. Rest of everything I agree with perfectly. Would almost rather have Polite play than Jamal at this point. Even though Polite can’t shoot and is extremely out of control. He and Daddy playing together and pressuring the ball handlers is a dream “havoc-like defense”

    Good point regarding Greene at the PG and Kolek as the SG.

    I think the Daddy/Polite combo can be effective for a few minutes of "energy/havoc." I think running them together for extended minutes has diminishing returns.

    Definitely. Can’t expect them to score much but could cause a lot of turnovers and some fast break points

    All I can say is LOL. This is what happens when you constantly recruit sub par a-10 players. Once we lost to Belmont, that was it for any hopes of being a contender this year. We will be in the bottom half of the standings every year moving forward under Paulson.
