Blew another 11 point lead. But still a well played first half. Now, can we finally put two good halfs together.

Stating the obvious....these fouls are killing us. As much as I say don't leave it to the refs, they are calling a different 2nd half game. BS!

We just beat a team that had only lost 1 game since November, fellas. Not too shabby.

C.B.’s best wins have come against Hofstra. He owns Mihalich!

Bench points 51-0 and outrebounded them 44-29. Wright Fortman is very good and I'm glad he's a senior. Hawks really played great tonight overall.

You shot better with the teams having about the same amount of every type of shot. You defended twos great. Cacok was the best player on either team, and everybody you had who attempted more than 2 shots played well or okay. You didn't have guys have bad games. JWF and Buie didn't shoot well. Buie made other contributions, but I would say JWF had a bad 30 point game, and Tareq Coburn also had a bad game. Pemberton shot well but had 4 fouls and 5 of Hofstra's 6 turnovers. You had 15 more rebounds, and the only other team to outrebound Hofstra that most was Maryland. The last CAA team to outrebound Hofstra by at least was 15 was you at the same place on February 10, 2018. The last CAA team to outrebound Hofstra by more than 15 was Towson by 18 on February 12, 2015.

Beating Hofstra should give us the tiebreaker over any team we split with

If we can put together a streak these guys can get out of the playin rouns

Easily the best win of the McGrath era. And the win was definitely from a coaching strategy. Toews playing in the middle of their zone created a lot of problems for HU and O'Connnel on JWF forced him to drive more than he wanted and really made him earn his three point shots.

Last four games we have given up 79, 81, 70 and 69 points against top scoring teams(74.7 ppg avg.)
Prior four games we gave up 104, 77, 89 and 88 to some of the worst offensive teams (89.5 ppg avg.)

We are still last in the CAA in PPG allowed. BUT, before these last 4 games we were allowing 88 ppg. We have now dropped to 81.1 ppg. That is a signigicant move in the right direction in such a short span.

Three big strategic changes i've noticed.

1. A definite slow down in running the clock in our half court offense. We run off the defensive rebound if it's there, but we are really working the clock in our half court set.

2. Switching on defense. Instead of going through/around screens, we are switching, which is stopping drives and is reducing our need for help side defense.

3. Regular Press. Eats some clock and forces the opponent to run their offense in a shorter period of time.

Games played into the mid 70's is to our advantage. Our half court offense is really very good with the combination of post players, outside shooters, a great passing PG and Cylla who can hit mid range jumpers, drive and hit from 3.

It took all season, and maybe too long since winning the CAA tournament will likely require coming out of the play in round., but the coaches seem to have found the right strategy for this team to win.

Not sure where we would wind up if we can win these next three games on the road. But, for the first time in the past two seasons, this team looks like it SHOULD win. Wouldn't be surproised to see O'Connel on Riller against CofC and UNCW coming away with the W.

Final note. MAN i'm going to miss seeing Cacok at Trask. Easily my favorite player to ever put on a Seahawk uniform. Ecstatic he was able to walk out of Trask for the last time with a win like that.

You should have seen Cacok's grin from ear to ear after his break away dunk to end the game. It was priceless.

O'Connell was really good last night, on both ends of the court. Contesting shots and finishing nicely at the hoop all night long.

It was big that we survived the first 4:00 with Etoroma and Kalina in the starting lineup; it was 7-7 at the under 16:00 Media TO when those 2 came out. O'Connell's alley-oop in that first 4 about took the roof off the arena.
