Trying to listen on radio. Shaky reception. Perhaps it's just my equipment.

Got to make free throws in the final minutes. Great comeback but should have been easier, Too many missed free throws.

Fire Martin! LOL

Nice win. This team will be fun to watch. A lot of upside in this group.

Nice win against a higher ranked team in KenPom ratings. Hens at 255 and Oakland at 186. Southern Illinois is at 220, so we should get the W there. Big test is Sunday against UTSA (144 in KenPom). Come out of the Sunshine Slam 2-1 Delaware is in a good position. But come out 3-0, and Delaware may be a force to reckon with in the CAA this year. Here are the CAA's rankings in KenPom for comparison:

Northeastern 132
Charleston 148
Hofstra 149
Towson 153
JMU 227
Drexel 235
William & Mary 239
Delaware 255
UNCW 266
Elon 333

Good win for the Hens! Now let's hope they bring it again over the next two days.

Southern Illinois just took down UTSA 72-60. Went on an 11-0 run to start the game and never looked back. Did come out slightly flat after the break, but overall held their own. Should be a good game tomorrow between the Salukis and Hens.

God I hate that. KA 0-7 from the field too. We'll have cold shooting nights understandable....but cold free throw shooting is inexcusable. 2-0 start though I'll take it
GO HENS!!
GO WOLFPACK!!
GO FALCONS!!
GO FLYERS!!
GO PHILLIES!!

Looks like they are playing in an empty warehouse...maybe 15 people in attendance. And I’m not kidding about that. This is the best early season tournament we could find???

But these are good teams from mid Major conferences. Don’t fans want to see them play? LOL ..... For sure I agree with you fin. And I agree with you also that the OOC is lousy, especially the home games. But this is how MI plays it. Glad the Hens won though.

Definitely quite funny to see some on here defending the indefensible...but that's par for the course for some of the normal chuckleheads. Not sure why we just can't be honest and call it what it is???

I see the "sunshine brigade" is out early today!! :D ...... Disappointed that we didn't lose. Some people are just never happy unless they are miserable. :lol: And a lot of them post on GoHens.

Oh right...sorry about that. Let me quickly get back to the “Delaware Way” mindset...

Non-conference schedule is awesome
Love the Sunshine Slam Tournament
WDSD is top notch
Coach Ingelsby is worthy of Coach of the Year consideration
This team has Final 4 potential

I promise not to say anything else that could possibly be construed as critical of all things Blue and Gold. Really, really...

2-0 is probably a tad early to make an evaluation of the season ahead. The first response to a win, any win, may be indicative of the internal bias of the poster.

Nice win, let's do it again today. I couldn't catch all of it yesterday, but there was nice resilience shown. The more they play together, the better they will get. Goss had a good game. Mutts got himself frustrated, trying too hard. He will be good, just needs to calm down a bit and maintain control. Cushing looks like he will be more of an asset.

If we can get 1290 in the tailgate lot :shock: , we can follow along after the football game. Go Hens!
