Penn

NIce win against a team that has historically given us a hard time. Liked our rebounding effort and the contributions by underclassmen. Scott had a good game which we will need from our seniors.!!

Nice job! Stayed home but we watched stream.  Best I've seen Monty play on O. Some amazing stuff around the basket.  Nick was Nick.  We all needed that one!

Scott Barr is a good addition to the broadcast.

Six rebounds for Nate. Four with six or more and four in double-figures for points. A great effort. Team rebounds about even.

I've learned to never count out an FoH coached team before Patriot League play (and really, before the Patriot League tournament). But that's a tough task right now.

Penn is certainly better than us (but not unbeatable), and I can't really get a read on SFC from their schedule thus far (losses at BC, Saint Louis and Louisville and a win over a non-DI). But I think we've got two "show me" games coming up at home. I'm not even saying we need to win them both, but I'd like to see a team that can make some noise come January and beyond.


Well, I'm satisfied with that. To be honest, if you told me that we would win one of these two, I probably would have picked SFC.

Yet another reason why I'm a guy on a message board and Fran is the head coach of the Leopards. Roll 'Pards.

I think you may have let the Princeton debacle affect your thinking too much.  LC was actually the favorite today (Pomeroy, Massey, Sagarin, and others).

It was a good basketball day. Hope there is some carryover.

I'll be very disappointed if we do not beat St. Frankie. I was at the UH vs St. Frankie game on Sunday. They either did not have a very good shooting night or they are not a very good shooting team. They basically won that game from the FT line. (UH did not shoot FT well at all and it cost them) They have 2 nice guards who are quick and like to get to the rim, but, otherwise I'd be very disappointed if we couldn't handle this at home.

On a side note, I was reminded as to how we are very spoiled by FOH's effectiveness at coaching "in game". Watching these two team's coaches was very interesting at times.

The stats I was looking at were a 52-point loss to Princeton, an eight-point loss to a La Salle team that Penn beat by double figures and a team that was a Nick Lindner-fueled miracle shy of being winless going into Sunday's game.

Silly me.

You don't have the kind of time 137 does. None of us do.

Actually takes very little time. Simply requires reading things between plays of football games instead of staring at 11 guys huddling up.  In the summer, reading in lieu of watching the pitcher walk around the mound for 30 seconds between each pitch.
