I wish in playing the game they had worked more on their offensive sets and passing. I wasn't looking for a take the game over highlight film for Matt Lewis. This game was not about winning, it was learning to play with each other and the plays. There was too much watching Matt Lewis breakdown lessor defenders for my liking.

I think part of the opportunity was wasted, but getting another game in yesterday was certainly good for the team.

Very fair point- too much one on one and not enough set plays. I do think if we expect Coach B to be a set play kind of coach we are going to be disappointed. The team will play sounded offensively and I think the big difference will be defensively compared with the last few years but I think his style is to let guys play free on offense get up and down and he’s not going to play conventional post basketball.

Instead of set plays I should of probably said ball movement. I recall one possession we really passed the ball around. I would of loved to see coach B say, 5 passes before any shot (less transition baskets). The guys need to learn to play with each other. How to pass and receive from each other. Need to learn to play as a team with ball movement. This team needs to be so much more than live or die watching Matt Lewis.

Oh what depths we have stooped to. One of the players on that team said it was the first time he had ever ridden on a charter bus! Wanted to know if the windows opened so he could spit his tobacco juice out.

Haha. Alice normally travels their 25 players in 4 of these loaners from the Pippa Passes, Ky junk yard. Knees to chin for 6 hour road marathons. Freshmen have to drive. Dems da rules.

haha

We had that car, if that's an Olds. '84 with a big ol 403 eng. (I think it was) in it. For a complete boat of a car if you jumped on it she'd scoot. All while getting about 12mpg.

Had a guy I knew in HS that went to a local junkyard, bought a retired Caddy hearse for 50 bucks. He stuck a new battery in it, couple tires, changed some belts to get it running again.

Filled the tank with gas and drove it all the way to Key West. He parked it in a beach front parking lot and lived in it for 2-3 weeks, sleeping in the casket cabin...

Yea, he was a bit off. 04-cheers

One of the cheerleaders was heard to say, "What a hoot! Spit on the floor like the rest of us!"

I wonder how much JMU paid this team to travel and play?

Maybe we don't have enough guys on the team to scrimmage?

Just seems very strange

It was strange. Maybe Mettlen can do another article in how This game came about. The article on the Maryland DOBO calling our DOBO was Interesting when we were teased by a big game and then had it cancelled just as quickly.

There has to be some connection to Alice. Nobody knew she existed until the game was announced a few days ago. What would be even more interesting is how many “no” answers is JMU getting for every “Yes” in the Wild West of scheduling.
Perhaps we see one or two more good gets after Christmas.

Christmas said it was good to play against someone other than his teammates.

Alice was on the way home from a game at Coastal Carolina.

The game happened, another (better) one is tomorrow, time to move on.

From what I understand, JMU just wanted games because we've had so many canceled and Alice was driving through on the way home from another game. It might just be as simple as they were in the neighborhood and both teams wanted to play somebody.

Agree on needing more good games. If we can play ODU and one of Richmond/Mason, all of a sudden, this would have been a decent OOC schedule.

Nobody knew she existed?

C’mon.

After Marsha, she was the most beloved of the Brady bunch. Just didn’t know she could put up a game of hoops too.

We all need a good housekeeper...

And Dukester, they aren’t NCAA D2, they are NAIA D2. About as low on the totem pole as it gets.

This was according to a radio announcer. Google tells me NAIA divisions are dead this year.

In reality the label did not matter (to me). I was just saying I don't care that we were playing a real bad team......

You sure it was her? I thought Alice didn't live (t)here anymore.
