Coach, I assume you watched the game and saw how much bigger, quicker and athletic the Georgetown team was especially their bigs. When you are outmatched like that I think anytime Maine had an open look they should take it regardless if it was a two or three. Unfortunately many possessions were 3's that were forced because of the shot clock and the failure to create any open looks. The overall stats would be skewed because of this.
I was impressed with Aaron Calixte and his ability to beat his man and get to the hoop over the bigs as well.

I agree Er and Lowndes look good as well and Fleming does seem out of sorts but continued to scrap and had a rebound where it was blown out of bounds incorrectly :(

The guys at halftime were basically laughing at Maine because of the average height differential. Total mismatch.

Fordham does play East Tennesee tonite in the Bronx.

Maine plays Fordham on Thursday but I think Maine could beat these guys.

basketball_guy: Fordham plays Maine on Saturday at 2:00pm not Thursday nite as you have posted twice. Both Fordham's and Maine's schedules has it Saturday.

Fordham lost to Eastern Tennessee tonight 82-77.

Fordham's coach is the coach from Eastern Kentucky that recruited Maine's Nick Mayo.
