Another ugly one. Elon did not deserve to even be close in this game, they had 3 points halfway through the first half, yet they had the ball down 2 with a chance to win. That would have been one of the worst losses in our D1 history if we lost that game from 15 up with 5 to go.

But as Dabo would say, a win is a win is a win. Gotta gut it out in the CAA this year.

He Who wants more playing time needs to practice his free throws. Can't go 0-for-4

Lot of blame to go around. Do not think he was even in game when we blew 13 points of a 15 point lead in less than 3 minutes

I think coach nailed it on the head during his postgame interview.
The COVID disruptions to staff, players, etc it really disrupts the ability to implement things.
Add the uncertainty of who will be available on a given day.

Eye test tells you right now we are not as good a team than we were a month or two ago.

The lack of guard and shooters seems to have slowed the tempo offense. Raekwon and Babacar have to be able to more consistently hit a three to really function in this offense. Though it appears both are getting better.

This game very important for tie breakers. Win this and we have tie breakers over 2 teams to stay out of play in game? With JMU ineligible for tourney only bottom 2 teams will play in.

We’ve beat 3 bottom half teams in a row but 2 on the road and in 3 different fashions. Even the Russian kid looks more comfortable now. We have a tough finish to this season having 7-10 games on the road but I’m wondering if the team is starting to figure out how to win. Big test next Sat up at Trask.

I think his time is limited by his aerobic ability, as in he gets winded pretty quickly. Dude had lost like 50 lbs in the last few months but he was gassed after 18 minutes of play.

That’s a game that if it was played 100 times with how we played, we maybe win 2 or 3. But that was one of them. Down 8 with 5:18 left and still pulled it out.

Huge to get the tiebreaker over Elon and W&M beating them twice each. With the way this season has gone anybody with a bye could legitimately win 3 in 3 and it wouldn’t be surprising. Maybe Elon but pretty much anyone else. NU and W&M are the two worst teams.

It's so weird to be on the other side of these conversations for once.
To be the team that is deeper and can rebound better. It shows we can survive the off day by our "stars" something that has sunk Earl's teams in the past.

Having a guy as skilled as Farrar just sitting on the bench patiently waiting is such an asset. Patiently is the key, cause we have all seen guys fester in Earl's tenure.

How many years of eligibility for Goodwin? Feel like the kid has had three different careers.
