    I don’t see them winning any games in the Big East this season if they continue to play like this. If l (and it is big if) they defeat Stony Brook, it could be their last win of the season. What a shame they committed to Coach Cooley long term. He will stay as coach but recruiting, already difficult, will be even more of a challenge.

    This is my last season as a season ticket holder. It’s way to expensive to watch a mediocre team at best. Very disappointed in the coaching and the team, especially the seniors.

    He had two high ranked players enroll two years ago, duke and reeves. Let’s see what they can do starting and playing most of game. Go with youth along with watson, holt and young. Gantt first off bench. Then white and Diallo but they have to show ready to play. If our umass transfer can’t run offense and continues to take bad shots, just send him to end of bench. He has not delivered as hoped. Nothing to lose at this point.

    Why is PC considered to be a school where it is difficult to recruit? Seems like a nice school with good facilities and the Dunk seems like a nice place to play. What am I missing?
