Our frontcourt is so unathletic, but they do work hard. Acuff played all 40 minutes today as well. Ellerbe and McGriff were MIA, nowhere to be seen.

Martynov did not play either. But was shooting in warmups. So I am assuming it is due to the emergence of Randle’s minutes rather than injury.

Were Ellerbe and McGriff MIA completely? Or were they just not shooting in warmups? I would have like to see both in this game. Buffalo did not shoot well, but some of their players were pretty quick and athletic. So they would have been a good counter even if just for a short duration.

Ramy, I noticed that Ellerbe and McGriff were NOWHERE to be seen. KDR was as usual in his sweats and the only players in game uniforms that did not play were Wells, Martynov and Pranger. That was the presumed reason for playing Osojnik alongside Acuff in the backcourt at times and Schnyder's as well while Tyson played buzzer to buzzer.

You make a great point about Buffalo's athleticism. They swatted away many shots and probably got away with a goaltending call or two. We, however, don't have that problem, nobody on our frontline has that kind of hops.

Academics? Covid? Seems strange they would not be sitting n the bench with the rest of the team.
I like Tom Helmer, he's grown on me but...why is he not noticing the same things? He has direct access to the team and the fans rely on him to get answers.

Go EMU!!!
That bet was a winner!

04-rock coincidentally, I bet big to (almost) double down on the previous losses the last 5 games. So I am back in the game…
Nice win for you. I took the under and won on that.

04-cheers

Does the transfer portal mean the "good will be gooder and the bad badder?" 03-weeping

And there isn't much "gooder" in the MAC. Lot of "badder." Ugh!!

This season is as bad a MAC MBB season as I can remember. I can remember 20 years ago the MAC was a top 10 conference.
