Huge game....
Both teams reeling a bit.
Northeastern is really undersized with Tomas Murphy out, they play an all guard lineup. Yet their game with WM was tied with 13 seconds left. All with Jordan Roland having a horrific shooting night.
Bill Cohen is an amazing coach.

Zep vs. Roland will be fun.
Bounce back game for Grant and Brevin?
Can the bench continue it's momentum.

I'd feel better about this if NU hadn't been backed up against the wall. They have had a week to prepare.

Its gonna be tough but I think we hold on to win.

These are must wins for hopes to finish as high as second. As inconsistent as any support for Riller is I think even with 2 wins second will be difficult. NU will not be worn down from numbers as they play as deep as the Tribe. When the get their big man healthy I doubt we beat them. Right now our best chance.

Well that was a disaster. So many good things in this game, from the first-ever triple double, to Sam and Zep coming to play after being non-factors in Williamsburg, to a good crowd, to a 15-point lead, all wasted by carelessness with the ball. 10 turnovers between Riller and McManus. Such lazy passes (including the one from Brevin on a critical possession) that just fueled Northeastern.

Props to NU.
They came in with their backs against the walls and played like it.
We played like we were on cruise control.

Sometimes I wonder coming out and shooting hot is almost bad, because it seems to kill the effort and focus on all the other aspects of the game.
Were we not prepared for them trapping and overplaying the passing lanes? Didnt seem like it.
Brace continues to be a cougar killer. That dude murders us from that crazy on the ground shot he hit a while back, and Roland made a serious consideration that he belongs in the top guard in the CAA not Grant.

Grant triple double? Terrific... But he also was a turnover machine leading to tons of NU runouts and he continues to be fascinated with these off balance fading two point shots with a hand in his face(I assume that this is being done strictly for the scouts in the audience kind of like Jarrell and the threes last year). There is no excuse for Grant to be shooting under 50% against a squad that trots out an all guard lineup. Sorry.

Green light Galloway has plummeted to earth now that the competition has stepped up.
and Jaylen Mcm... Not going to criticize him. He is what he is. Coaches should have recruited over him long ago.

A lot like the game we played 3 years ago when Brace made the fall-away buzzer beater. We were up 16 that game, 15 tonight. We had a 14-0 first half run, that game we had a 18-2 run. Northeastern had a 13-0 and a 10-0 run that night, they closed 26-11 tonight.

From 6:27 to 3:09 nobody scored. We were up 5 at that point. They had to get buckets on some of those possessions and they couldn’t.

Different team except for Riller and McManus, but eerie to see the coincidence.

Riller needs to go into last year’s mode. Trying to do too much on the court. Great to see the triple-double, but at what expense? We have the players to play that way.

This team not that good. Miller and Galloway pulled another half game act. Both disappeared second half. How the hell does Riller have 6 more rebounds than any of our frontcourt
Our front court is lazy period. Just hope they can hang on for as high as a 4th place finish. Play like second half tonight and might not he that high. Flat gave this game away. Refuse to blast Riller. He can not do everything when he has no support like second half tonight and whole game against the Tribe

LOL.

Hot shooting is a bad thing.
We should Bench Riller after a triple-double.
Miller sucks after a 20 point effort.

How quickly we forget the Herrion and Wojcik years....

This is amateur sports. Crazy %%&@ Happens. Relax
