Metropolitan College

Neither team can hit the ocean from the water's edge.  The Pards continue to launch 3s that don't hit much of anything.  Down by 1 with 12+ to go.

We're the better team but just not hitting.

If only Fiacco could hit those close shots under the basket.  She never has been able to do it.  But she's a defensive machine.

gotta make foul shots!!

This loss makes it very difficult to climb above 5th place.  That probably means no home game in the playoffs.

18 secs to tie or win. Looked like a cluster ___.  Did we have a time out left?  What was the strategy?  Lousy coaching job there?  Win or tie that game. You got a missed foul shot gift from BU.  A mess of a final possession.

Andy, yes the game could have been won on the final shot. We had a TO remaining. Personally, I don't like to call a TO in that situation, it gives the defense time to organize. Even with a TO, there is no guarantee we get off or make a shot. The bottom line is, if you only shoot 32%, you are not going to win a lot of games. This was a total team loss.

Ok, but a TO to get everyone on the same sheet. At least to get a good shot. A mess of a final possession to tie or win. Home court, get it done!  Urgency, do something!

Nontheless I kind of like this team and their work ethic. I nominate them to be the only winning team this year. I have done no analysis so maybe its more of a wish or a hope.

Baseball picked for last, men's lacrosse picked for last,softball picked for last and  w lacrosse middle of the pack. But hey we sold out Yankee Stadium… oh yeah that's next year.

Let's see administration how do you define a successful athletic department.?
I guess athletics is sort of like the college newspaper, or student council, we have it and it functions…sort of!!

It has taken me a few days to process what I feel was a devastating loss.  As was said above, it was a total team loss - and to to a weak team at home.  The Met College coach must have gone to school on LC.  Homan was shut down completely and, as often has happened to the women's team, the shooting was atrocious.  The problems at the point continue - great point guards win close games (and we don't have one quite clearly).

Tomorrow night is a must win followed by a long bus ride back from wherever Loyola is (I know it is somewhere in Baltimore) in potentially horrible weather.  They should have postponed the game until Thursday or Friday rather than playing it at 5.

Disgusted.
