The first place Metro college fellows are at KSC @ 2 PM today. They will be a hand full for our youngsters. Let's protect the home court!

We were just outmanned. Klinewski had a career high I think and Lindner had a nice game but after that we showed very little.
I don't know why we don't/can't defend the 3 point line that well? It would be better to give the opponent a layup, that's only 2 point!
The stretches closing both halves killed us.
FOH has his work cut out for him.

If Lindner or Klinewski miss any time, well that can't happen.
There is nothing behind them. This team not only doesn't have depth, it can't put together a starting five.
The rest aren't consistently capable or (putting it charitably) are too young.
The note on protecting the home court is interesting.
Chipman and VBK emphasized that. There was "The Streak."
Now that stuff is ancient history. Kirby is a friendly venue for visitors.

Many of today's top players for BU - Alston, Hankerson, Havener, Fanning, and Goff - played major minutes in 2015 when our senior laden team destroyed them by 25 in the playoffs.  What a difference a few years can make.

The real home court advantage was in the old gym. That place was a pit! The KSC advantage went with the old white curtain.
Every team want to hold serve on their home court.

Agreed. The court lighting was so poor that following a game at Alumni Gym Joe McKinney of St. Joseph's (who went on to coach in the NBA) refused to schedule another game there ever again saying "It's so dark on the court that you could develop photographs out there."  You all do remember photographs...Smile)

Yes, and the student fans sat so close to the sidelines they could pull and poke at the players ( and did) inbounding the ball. The place was packed and hot. Did see some great basketball up close though. Can remember Bill Bradley hitting what would have been threes today in overtime to eventually beat us.

(also can remember the fist fights to get into the gym to register for next semester classes. No one wanted saturday classes and tried to reduce the number of 8 am classes) The snowflakes of today have no idea. ( we also had 5 count 'em 5 classes a semester, a foreign language requirement and two lab course requirements)

Absolutely!
My all time favorite was the entire student section chanting "The Ref eats $#!t" after a bad call.
You will never hear that again!

In the 80s, the Theta Delts used a chant at Kirby you probably won't hear again --

"The ref started AIDS!"

This was also during the Queenan/Polaha era at Lehigh, which resulted is a string of chants, in the following order --

"Queenan Sucks! Queenan Sucks!"
"Polaha Sucks!  Polaha Sucks!"
"Queenan Sucks Polaha!  Queenan Sucks Polaha!"

Ah, kids . . .

lafalum: I remember the days of Saturday Classes and 5 courses very well.  Willie Watt's Shakespeare Course was given at 8am on Tues, Thurs and Saturday morning.  It was always packed because Willie acted out the roles in the plays.  It was great entertainment even when half the class was hungover and the the other half went to class in their pajamas.  Watt loved it when guys brought their dates and girlfriends to class on Saturdays.  He was born performer!
