    The game is not on TV according to Go Mason. If anyone has a link for streaming, etc., please share.
    You can listen here if you are a masochist: https://gomason.com/watch/?Live=292&type=Live

    The Bonnies have wins over GW, GMU, Fordham (twice), and UMass. Losses are against VCU, Dayton, and Rhode Island.

    St. Bonaventure won the first match-up of the year 61 - 49 in Fairfax. We shot 38% from the field and 42.9% from the charity stripe. AJ and Kier led us with 11 points each. Lofton led the Bonnies with 17. They out-rebounded us 44 - 24. Nope, not a typo. They killed us on the glass.

    Stats from the first game: https://gomason.com/sports/mens-basketball/stats/2019-20/st-bonaventure/boxscore/10540

    DP is 1 - 6 against St. Bonaventure, including tournament play.

    Stats - https://gobonnies.sbu.edu/sports/m-baskbl/2019-20/files/SBU_Stats_12520.pdf

    My prediction: Another loss which will drop us to 2 - 7 in A10 play. St. Bonaventure 74 - GMU 60.

    Discuss or not, optimism about any success is pretty much gone.

    Stadium and MASN will be airing the game. And if you are like me (no Stadium or MASN available) use the Pluto app on Roku

    Stadium has a free app you can watch on any device. I watched last night's stadium game on a Roku TV and on a Fire stick TV, which I have done for several of our GW games.

    Mason loses by 15. Paulsen apologist trolls say give him another year. Same old story.

    I am going with patterns on this one. Since starting conference play, we have lost 2 in a row and then won 1. We have just lost 2 in a row, so it is time to win one. Our first win was 76-63. Our next win was 73-63. Following a loose pattern, I predict we win 70-63. Bet the 401k on it.

    Need a win, but I don’t see it coming at Bonaventure. Paulsen always gets worked by Schmidt at this point.

    Good question. If he plays Bonaventure is a lot better.

    Mason hangs around for a lil while... then decides to play terrible defense in the 2nd half and the Bonnies run away with it.

    That sounds about right. It will most likely start at the end of the first half.

    Mason will win tomorrow. It will give us a slight hope that DP has figured things out and then we will lose 10 in a row.

    Season will end after a first round loss in the PIG. AJ transfers, Greene transfers. China claims US/Japan is behind the Coronavirus outbreak, launches biological warfare against all of its enemies, the world responds militarily.

    China is backed into a corner and launches all of its nukes, the world responds accordingly. GMUJim is one of only a handful of humans that survive this ordeal as the cloud of his pro Paulsen delusion protects him from radiation fallout and ultimatley gets the last laugh on all of us.

    Jim becomes emperor of this post-apocalyptic world. Goes on to repopulate the earth creating a race of people who develop a culture of slow moving, unimaginative offensive basketball skill sets. He calls this new world ...... Paulsenstan.

    Is anyone else, including Jim himself, willing to admit that his "Pro-Paulsen delusion" has been quite tempered over the last week, and seems less delusional and more optimism/hope/choosing-the- known-over-the-unknown? Chank may need to find a different post-apocalytic emperor

    I’m definitely in the “this year sucks, next year is everything and I have hope but doubts” boat.

    Its only "everything" if eveyone returns and only jds leaves. Not sure this excuse stands up without Boyd, Keir, Aj back. Otherwise, its basically 2 steps back. And how do u fit everyone on roster with 3 new guys signed.
