Woah, slow down there buddy. I'm not sure if we've beaten anyone of significance just yet. Long way to go to be in the conversation with the 2015 squad that went 24-8 (12-4), won the CAA Tournament, and included a regular season victory over UNC.

I meant to throw "start to the season" in there.

Sorry 2015 ladies if you're out there... no disrespect. lol

First SJ is a she, and now this? Get your sh*t together man! 03-lmfao

For accuracy's sake, yes, this year's team is off to a better start than the 2015 squad. That team started 4-0 before losing to Sacramento St.

I don't feel like going back through the records so I'll just assume 5-0 is our best start in school history, considering the '15 squad was the only one in our history to make the NCAA Tournament.

Huge match @ Duke tonight at 7!

Further, I'm not solely interested in reading about men's basketball. There's plenty of sports at UNCW to cover. Our volleyball team is currently having a great season, and perhaps their best of all time.

What I really enjoyed about the last person in the position (Alex) was his attendance at games, providing quick pre and post game/match videos and sometimes interviews. It felt like we were a part of what he was reporting on, and it developed and cultivated a genuine excitement about whatever event was taking place.

I don't think any of us are meaning to say she's not good at her job. Just casual observations on some of what really seemed to work well from a alumni and fan perspective.

Don't disagree. Alex was awesome but was way out performing his pay check I'm sure with the podcasts and such. Almost like he was building his resume for another job...

All the more reason to over perform.

It is getting to the point that (at least the Gatehouse papers) none of them have decent print editions. Friday night high school games are not reported in the paper until Sunday. What crap. They would much prefer people to subscribe to the online versions. Cheaper (for them) that way.
