Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Go to the Rams basketball forum. Pretty interesting. Potential coaches & of courses discussions about todays game. The frustration basically mirrors this board.

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Yes IronDuke,
They are extremely angry.  As I said on another post, they have been used to winning over the last two decades, unlike DU basketball.  If by some strange reason RI would lose to Duquesne, they will want their coach fired immediately!

Friday's matchup against VCU ought to be a good one.

If you really believe what you’ve been saying I’m sure you could find some unheard of odds on the Dukes to win the tourney.

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

We are actually up at half time. I think we have 14 transition points vs zero for RI. Most 3 that are going in look like good shots? Fairly aggressive defense. Primo is looking like a Norm Nixon, at least in this first half.
Hima looked good early, but got cheep fouls then had to sit. Go Dukes. Win this one.

Larson should not be shooting at all.

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Game slipping away. Not as aggressive on defense. Dukes down 2 scores in second half, and unless they run that transition game from the first half, likely won't win.

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Now Hima should be in 3 plus minutes left,, RI is out rebounding us 100 percent right now. Larson should be on the bench.

2 minute left. Hima on the bench, why. We need rebound, we are not getting any now.

 +10000, same for LaSalle and GW. So that's what, bet $100 to win $10000? Rhode Island's only +3300

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Oh well, good try.  Just need something, anything from the paint.   Dambrot better hope Spears and Johnson stay.  And he can add some beef inside.   Next few weeks/month will mean a lot.

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

A 6-24 record and now 45 years since an NCAA tournament appearance. If you watch Letterkenny you probably want to go about as crazy as the hockey coach about now. "F**king embarrassing (kick the trash can)"

Re: Game Thread - University of Rhode Island Rams (A10 Tourney)

Didn't get blown out but otherwise a good microcosm of the season. Pretty tough to win in basketball when you A) have no inside game B) are one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the country and C) are one of the worst teams in the country at defending the 3. When you look at it that way, losing this game by only 2 points is practically a win. Glad to put this season to bed, but I agree with the other posters, it's going to be an uphill battle just to get this team back to double-digit wins, never mind competitive in the A10. They're just bad in pretty much every facet of the game.

Hima is so been mismanaged by Dambrot. Yes he is raw but what an upside. What garbage on the floor. Next year will be another cluster F….. Dr Evil is stealing. Enjoy your 1 million dollar salary. Criminal.Disgusted as a Duquesne alumni.

Hima hits mid court jumpers over everyone, but like today, rarely get's a chance unless, like today, someone gets stuck under the hoop and feeds it out to him. Then he hits it. He can hit that shot all day. Nothing is ever set up for this guy. Notice, we scored 14 transition points in the first half, instead of holding up to set up a half-court play. Second half, we just slowed down the game to half court and get out played? That's the story of the whole season.

I probably shouldn’t say this.   But your darlings Gormley and Harper hired him.   So are they are stealing?

I give both a pass on the hiring. Gormley new medical school. Harper raised money for the Cooper Center.Also football program getting closer to a balanced budget by scheduling power 5 schools. Let’s face it Dambrots job as well as expectations was to win a championship. Tired of his excuses. Did Covid only affect Duquesne mens basketball? I along with many on this board bought into Dambrot. This season was indeed very clairvoyant as to the future under Dambrot.
