Came out flat, to many mental errors, and inability to make free throws.

Flat, lethargic, and inconsistent.

While you can make a case that the team missed Peay (who was out sick), a team is only as good as is depth, and I think this team is much better than they played last night. I didn't see a will to win at all.

Well, at least Maine shot better than 50% from the free-throw line ! 13 for 24 (54%) is pretty impressive, especially when Stony Brook only had the same number of free-throw points themselves (13/14, i.e.,93% !) !?

I'd say the head coach has earned himself another multi-year contract with yet another impressive, NOT !, almost win (hey, it was only eleven points at the end, and they even closed to within seven a few times in the second half) ! ? :o :roll:

This team definitely needs to find a way to bring it mentally EVERY GAME.

Wow, watched the recap on Channel 5 and Tim Throckmorton commented on how small the crowd was. It looked like 500 people might have been a stretch. The Alfond w/ that small of a crowd is terrible. Let them play in the pit and have some what of a homecourt advantage instead of playing at a funeral.

At this point you're preaching to the choir. The problem is the damn sky boxes! The athletic department makes a ton of money off from them and to pull over 20 basketball games (men's and women's) out of Alfond would really hurt them financially. While it would help the teams (and maybe help them win more), it would not produce the same revenue nevermind additional revenue. Yes......it seems like the almighty dollar is more important than wins! They better watch themselves though.......you start losing enough and there won't be anyone in the stands OR the sky boxes.

Who in their right mind would want to watch a hoop game from the hockey sky boxes????? They are so removed from the hoop court. Don't understand the sky boxes relationship to bball, please elaborate MJ.

They have televisions in the boxes so you can watch the Celtics or another college game after Maine loses their first half lead. :oops:

To be honest the Pit does need a little work, those old wooden chairs are very uncomfortable. I would hate to spend every home game watching from there. The "pack the Pit" promotion they had going for a few years was alright, because it was only a single game. It would create a better atmosphere for sure though.
