Re: Bahamas Trip

For what it's worth, of the candidates for the shooting guard spot, Lamar Norman looked pretty good. Is Mike Hughes hurt, he didn't play.

The other shooting guards were 1 for 14 from 3. Were they using the new 3 point line?

I just took a picture, captioned it and tweeted it. The entire process took less than one minute. I’m sure they could find time to do that 3 or 4 times a week.

Pure laziness.

Not arguing.  But, maybe KD put a gag order on this trip, only written post game articles, no pics, highlight clips, etc.  At least we got a post game wrap up article.   https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/cool.png

They were using all FIBA rules which also just happens to be the distance of the new college 3 point line.

They also used quarters and 24 second / 14 second reset shot clocks


I hate myself for loving you. Quoting me without the expressed written consent of the National Hockey League is prohibited.

Wondered about that. The team has been in the Bahamas since Monday, they were allowed to practice for 10 days before that. Yet no reports or updates of any kind on preparations, activities, experiences, game previews, just a post-game report. Does sound like Keith is keeping a tight lid on things. Compare that to the women's team which has had updates all summer on players' offseason workouts, coaches' recruiting trips, players' birthdays, Dan Burt throwing out the first pitch at a Pirates game, coaches goofing off around campus, etc. Draw your own conclusions.

Without checking Twitter, Instagram or any other social media...the University websites at Texas Tech and Georgetown seem to be handling it the same as DU.  Initial announcement and game summaries.  Not sure why it is so low key but unless someone really dropped the ball...this seems planned.

Re: Bahamas Trip

It still doesn’t explain why there were no original posts from Duquesne mbb from 7/10/19 to yesterday.   You don’t have to post about the tournament if there is some sort of self imposed blackout.   

However isn’t social media to promote the team?   Going dark for nearly a month is silly.


The person who run the women’s team social media just does a better job.   I like seeing things about the new players and birthdays, etc.  I like seeing practice pictures and funny posts.     It gives the fan a connection to the coaches and team.   In other words, it promotes them. 

A novel idea.

I’m not bitching for the sake of bitching.  I want the team to do well and gain more fans.   The school has to do their part.

Re: Bahamas Trip

It's a fair point, A83. On Facebook, some folks were wondering why the women's team has their own Facebook page while the men's team just shares the GoDuquesne channel with every other Duquesne team. In any case, the women's team has a far more active social media presence. If the men's team had a strong following beyond a handful of students and alumni diehards, I wouldn't really care, but obviously we don't and could use all the promotion we can get. GoDuquesne has spent the summer promoting merchandise featuring the new logo, the NCAA women's volleyball championships, the fall sports team's schedules and talking up the new bowling recruits and awards won by DU tennis players and swimmers. Not a word about men's basketball.
