Did any one else hear the guys calling the game say something about the A10 distributing money to it's conference schools for being affected by the pandemic ? I'm gonna go back and see if i can find when it was mentioned but i thought i heard something like each school would receive 1 million.
It is 100k and it covers testing which has been very expensive but effective in limiting the spread of the virus.
hopefully they can get back to being competitive at some point.
When were they ever "competitive" in the A10? They've had 2 overall winning records in 25 years in the league, and only 2 seasons above .500 in league play, including 13 years with under 4 league wins.
Was checking the other day, and I think the only a-10 teams they have winning series records against are Fordham and Duquesne. I think they’re maybe about even with the bonnies
"I love to devote my time to hoping this basketball program maintains status quo and remains eternally mediocre. Everything is *always* fine."
Our 3 point shooting for last three games is 39-87 for .448
Our 3 point defense for last three games is 15-72 for .208
Really great numbers. Thanks for sharing.
The shooting is getting better as Jig and Ayinde are getting into the lane more, IMO. This opens good looks and good dish opportunities. Jack is shaking off some of the rust on the 3 ball, Scott is doing better with converting catch and shoot open threes versus 3s off the dribble, and Sherif and Cliff are making threes. When you have penetration and four good scoring options in the game, good things happen.
On D, Ash is doing a better job with lineup combinations and keeping players fresh. They are buying into his defensive intensity philosophy.
We won't have these spreads forever, but if we maintain a good positive margin between the two metrics, we will succeed. I like the trend and hope the positive margins stay up.
