    Agree on all. More specifically, in order to win this evening I think Mason will need to:
    (1) hit at least 12 3's,
    (2) allow UMD < 25% of available offensive rebounds,
    (3) have less than 10 TO's,
    (4) hold UMD to < 25% shooting from "3" and < 45% from "2", and
    (5) shoot > 50% from the field overall.

    Agree- UMD is only shooting about 27% from 3, but I suspect it’ll be their bigs that will kill mason on the inside and on the boards. They also can’t have long lapses of not being able to score on offense. I think its just going to be a typical power 5 buy game beat down.

    Tickets are $5 on Stubhub FYI. The final push I needed to leave work early and head up.

    Doesn't seem like many people there...Mason crowd should be pretty audible.

    I'd be surprised if the BTN announcers spend any more than 30 seconds talking about Mason.

    Greene needs to hits threes AND make better decisions.

    Gotta quit it with the dumb and-ones. We bitch slap people’s wrist on the way by. Just f*cking hit them and make sure they miss.

    That said, not bad so far.

    Don’t worry shitbirds, lots of basketball to go. Don’t give up hope of a big loss you can finally celebrate.

    Doing enough to hang around. First four minutes of the second half will be key, need to come out swinging.

    also, can paulsen teach our guys how to attack a zone? I guarantee after seeing our film any smart coach in the A10 will go zone from the get go, we can’t figure it out.
