Metropolitan College - Gut check time

Major game at an inoportune time, or, is this just what the doctor ordered? A win would go a long away towards boosting our trajectory. Metro is in first place and throttled Lehigh and edged Navy.

Leave it to Bogie to have me hating a school that I felt completely indifferent towards a year ago... that and our drubbings and Metro owning this league as rookies.

PS I'm declaring Bogie dead in absentia.

PPS BU = Bucknell University forever and always

Could this really be a must-win? It sure feels like it.
Pard4Life

Must win for the chicken littles.  But realistically if we want first place we have to win this game.

Halfway through and the first and we've been down six, then down one, before Metro went on a 9-1 run. We are shooting 33%. Not a good sign.
Pard4Life

Down six at half. Shooting picking up.
Pard4Life

Ok down one! Joey just took and hit his first shot, a three.

Do we normally take - and miss - this many mid-range jumpers?

And right when I say that, the announcers say they've made every mid-range jumper. Not in the game I'm watching...

We have to run after rebounds and contest ….our offensive rebounds is hurting us when you miss the threes.

Big time, much needed win right there!
Pard4Life

YES!!!! That was inspirational! Nice win guys!!
Lafalum

Whew ! This team can drive you crazy.

Whew ! This team can drive you crazy. Rufer and Hinrichs pick up Trist.

Great win! But we need to get boards and get shots earlier in the shot clock. If we don't up our game it will be a long season.

That's what we're talkin about! Way to battle guys!  Go New York, go New York. Happy for Zach!

Loyola just beat Lehigh 65-60.
Can the Colgate transfer team hold up?

2-2 at this point not bad. Thought it would be 3-1 but the Navy loss doesn't seem quite as bad considering what they are now doing and Lindner not playing. Rufer's only bucket the game winner. Home against the greyhounds on Weds.

Nice win.  Stole one when our shooting was off - don't see that happening all too often.  Our free throw attempts are way down in at least two of the last 3 games.  Have not seen anything but the box scores, but are we not going to the rim as often as we did at start of season?  Early in season it at least seemed as if we were going harder to the hoop and not just relying on outside shot.
Kpard

Shot 3 FTs to Boston's 11
seenalot

Right.  Didn't really mean it as compared to other team - we almost always lose that stat.  Meant as compared to our own ability to push it a bit and draw a foul, which I thought I was seeing earlier in year.  

We have good shooters and a good FT % - just seem to be getting to line less than we did earlier in season and wondered if others were seeing same?
Kpard

Yes that does seem to be the case. We are mostly a face up and shoot team, not penetrate and invite contact.

Let's keep the "hating" alive:

SAT scores of incoming BosU mens bball player(s):

'09-'10 - 990

'08-'09 - 955

And remember the "recentering" of scores in 1995 brought a previous 500 in math/verbal to 580/520.  My old guy frame of reference is outdated.

With all the other dissimilarities, makes you wonder why they're in the league.

(Our last study dates to when we were trying to compete in a scholarship league w/out scholarships:

'04-'05 1130
'03-'04  1145)
