ouch, down 10 at half, and the cats dunk with a fraction of a second left for the momentum.

before that, vt went on a 20-6 run while we missed six long balls.

The abysmal FT shooting of this team drives me crazy. Very hard to win big games on the road without hitting the free ones.
And the lack of a low post guy aggravates me

Also, I think coach is playing too many guys. Needs to go with 8 or 9. Too many random lineups doesn’t facilitate having this team play well together, IMO.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

He is still trying to find his starting and bench line up.. I am not sure what to make of this team.. Is it the lack of quality play makers or is this coaching. either way. This team is so unpredictable and in disarray

Yeah, not playing cohesive. Could easily be 0-4 after today. 1st 2 conf wins very lucky. I really think that this team has loads more talent than last year’s team, but just not playing well together. Of course, we’re missing Woodhouse who was last year’s glue.

I know I’ve said it a thousand times but ... there goes Akwasi with his fourth foul at the 17 minute mark of the second half.

The Sturdy 3-Ball experiment must stop. He needs to get back to his post game, which he was effective with, the 1st half of last season.

Lax been saying it all a long. Sturdivant needs to stop shooting the 3 ball.  He just create more turnovers by doing that..
I noticed the last 2 years. Sturdivant starts off hot them goes totally cold in the 2nd  half of the season..

really saw a lot of good from saintel today.  he's talented with the ball in his hands and driving to the hoop.

That is about all the good i saw today.. If Yeboah constantly gets himself into foul trouble, this team is finished.. I really thought Ochefu was a better player. I guess not. Just another project and a dream. Like Petris..

Not surprised  by Vermont well balanced and well coached . A very solid  team as our guys continue to  struggle . I think we win Thursday with Binghamton coming here.

Twenty point game if Vermont hits its free throws. TBH threw up brick after brick.

For me, if Sekunda is going to lead the team in minutes, he’s gotta get more than four shots up. 4 points, 0 rebounds, 1 assist, 0 steals, 0 blocks. That is a lot of running around with very little production.

Free throws 32 to 8 in Vermont’s favor.

" Free throws 32-8 in Vermont favor"..............  Why is that?? Because our guys are not driving to the basket.. I would like to know why!. I am beginning to think coach Boals is not drawing up the plays to do so.. I just dont know yet.....

Ochefu moves much better than Petras, although we have not seen much evidence of whether he has a post game. At a certain point I wouldn't mind seeing the underclassmen get more minutes, including Macenzie and Long.

This may not go over well but I am not sure (unless there are recruiting benefits) there is much value in playing over your head in pre-conference play. They are not realistic games that enable you to run normal half-court sets (which is what it looks like SB needs work on), or even defend good half-court offenses (considering the ease in which Albany and Vermont were able to consistently get good looks.)
