Rhode Island has 24 points. 17 are second chance points. They finished the half on an 8-0 run. Gotta feeling we’re gonna be watching the Friday games at the Arch.

And then we get 3 fouls in one Rhode Island possession
They had 7 fouls a little before the 13 min mark and Birds had 1. By 12:45, Birds had 4. These guys are going to make sure the numbers look even.

Figure out how to crash the boards, play defense with our feet- and move without the ball on offense and we can be solid.

Yeah. That means learn to play basketball fundamentals. McChesney gets the ball on the block. Spins left- rather than pump fake and go strong, he decides to spin back right into a double team. Lol
He really needs to turn that potential into production.

He isn’t an inside player. Someone should have been working with Sissoko the last couple years on his inside game. He has the body!
I know it’s “early” but when you don’t rebound, foul too much, shoot poorly and turnover too much it’s hard to compete and get W’s. Need to see improvement in at least one of these soon eh

One problem that I see consistently is Pedon wants to play thru the lane and the middle the problem is, is the bigs aren't really talented. Liam isnt a post, Kotov is a liability on offense, Petrakis just wants to shoot 3s, Schmitt is too slow. If Pedon wants to turn this around he is going to need some bigs who are productive and right now we don't have any. We are getting outrebounded by 19 (46-27) and Rhode Island has 19 offensive rebounds and there bigs are mostly freshman.

Let's hope these guys continue to work hard as a team in practice, shore up their fundamentals, show some pride and show everyone how much they can improve. Not sure what the ceiling is for this team...but there are definitely plenty to work on.

That's been the issue for the past 4 years .. no inside game at all

Editing .. except partial season with Chatman
