    We also need guys who drive to score for that to happen. It also really helps to have played with guys to have foresight into knowing to expect that.

    Only Harris and Thompson really drive to score, and a seal only is beneficial if you’ve beaten your man off the dribble, which Harris really struggles to do.

    Furthermore, we can’t overstate how much defenses are packing it in against us.

    I think we’re all really underestimating the impact of not just how much we lost, but how much we rely on continuity for execution.

    It’s not being negative to point out that we shot really well from three and they shot poorly and we still lost by 8. That’s a bad sign for the rest of this season; we may not make 11 threes in a game the rest of the year. I’m excited about the future of these freshmen as much as anyone, but there’s not much reason to think this team isn’t just flat out bad this year.

    Getting bent out of shape about someone pointing out a stat that conflicts with your suggestion is weak.

    I can’t really disagree here with anything you stated, just missing some of the smart BU basketball we’re used to. The lack of practice has really set us back.

    I do think Tate probes the drive though and a seal would help immensely. Not to mention a seal on the rebound. Former teams often had guards snagging the rebound. We don’t seem to have the height or athleticism to rebound by the bigs—but they have respectable behinds, use ‘em. AC was a champ at that.

    Also—the Star really likes the “worst 7 game start in forever” narrative which is annoying. When have we ever played Nova (and started conference play) 3 games in? Not to mention a 3 week layoff, kids coming back from illness, and 2 practices in 3 weeks. Context, please.

    Didn’t mean for it to come across that way- I’m with you though there was a lot of good that came out of that game regardless of score

    Let me tell y'all about Jersey...I dated a chick from Jersey for 2 years. That's all you need to know about Jersey people. :)

    Your threshold for trashiness is measured by their willingness to associate with you?

    In this case, it’s accurate. Birds of a feather! :)

    Surprisingly, Title’s posts on here lately have been cogent, timely, and generally spot on.

    I think he recognizes the young talent we have. He's always been good about that. I would also agree with others that until LJ can recruit a Big East 5, conference wins will be an uphill battle. It will be interesting to see if Wilmouth can develop into a Kam Woods kind of rebounder. He's been really solid on the offensive glass so far.
