It makes sense because Davidson has LITERALLY made 88 threes tonight, folks...Schmidt getting outcoached. Embarassing stuff.
At least St. Bonaventure doesn't harbor neo nazis like davidson does!
It sucks getting killed on national TV, but if I had to pick a game to lose out of Davidson/Richmond/Duquesne, I'd take this one because I think Davidson has too much ground to make up for the tiebreaker to come into play. Davidson still has to play Rhody, @Dayton, @Richmond and VCU.Squandering the monster gift we got Wednesday. Not surprised. We dont match up or play well against good shooting teams. 20 minutes still. We can't keep going one and done though.
There's nothing to say about tonight, so let's make things interesting: do you guys dare me to fight Bill Russell in a North Union roundabout in sub-zero temperatures tonight?
We can’t deal with them until a few things happen-View attachment 148
Hey ESPN...fuck you for this “matchup predictor.”
Of all the teams in the a10, I care the least for Davidson due to several reasons: 2016 a10 quarter loss with the infamous Sullivan dagger, constantly raining threes upon us in every game they play vs us, reaping the residual effect of Curry and getting unwarranted love from the media, underachieving in the OOC fucking always somehow, being an international team, and playing in the gray area of cheap holds, pushes, and screening without getting called for that shit.
Grady has not had a great year, but he surely wants to light us up in the RC a la the 3OT game during his freshman year. JAG will complain at every possible moment if a call goes against him. Lee needs to be closed out on (as does everyone except their Austrian national). I’m just going to pray that they miss tomorrow night and don’t back cut the shit out of us. If Carter Collins or some other guy (Jones) start hitting threes tomorrow, I’ll lose my shit.
But I digress...Go Bonnies!

I agree with this. As much as I don't want to rewatch that one, this isn't Dayton/VCU when a calamity of pre-game errors meant we never had a shot. We had a full squad at home with an essentially sold out crowd. Davidson exploited the same damn weaknesses I drunkenly explained after the Duquesne win and soberly confirmed before tonight's game after checking with That Nerd KenPom. Our style of defense is ferocious, but even when we play man, teams can shoot over us with the way we rotate. If a team like Davidson (who is always good at 3s) or VCU (who strikes gold and hits a bunch of 3s early) starts clicking, we are dead in the water.I don’t think we should burn the tape on this one. We need to figure some things out against teams like DC and VCU if we expect to do anything meaningful with this sophomore class. Let’s look at this performance and make sure everyone has a change of attitude.
I wouldn't play Sen. Planutis unless Winston had 3 fouls in the first half or was about to literally cough up a lung. Move Welch to the 4 or maybe try Carpenter/Ikpeze. Bobby is an absolute liability on both ends.Game over. Hopefully I’m allowed to react and say it was one of the worst bona games I’ve seen —post soloman. Planutis should have a consistent red light on offense and well-worn position on the bench barring a “break the glass scenario.”
The numbers nerds and wannabe coaches here will disagree with me, but there’s an element of bad luck involved when teams shoot like that against us. Davidson has quietly been shooting the shit out of it and getting production from their young guys... they’re rolling.Bill- I Respectfully disagree that effort wasn’t an issue. Sure, we came out punching, but what did we do beyond that? We came out punching and expected it to be enough, and when they punched back we got knocked on our ass. And when they punched a second time, we metaphorically lifted our wrists up to protect our faces and accepted the ass beating.
Once it became a double digit game, it was over. We reverted to a scared, one on one and/or hurried 3 point style of offense coupled with a defense that simply wasn’t working. Effort is a relative term- maybe we were still trying Hard, but we shriveled up to a form of play that wasn’t getting it done.
I think I love our future, but fuck, man. The jay and posely eras - we suffered some bad ones, but never allowed ourselves to get truly embarrassed like we did tonight. And that’s the third time inside of a month that we have gotten shelled like that.
What has me most befuddled though is, why the fuck is this just us, seemingly? I get why we’re a bad matchup. We’re not athletic enough to totally dominate their discipline with athleticism, and not disciplined enough to match up with their discipline: But how in the fuck do other A10 teams who would, In theory have the same issues, beat them? Duquesne is a near perfect example.
I understand a lot of this is just spewing frustration but fuck, man. This one is sticking in my ass, and hard to shake.
