Darth- Since we don't the extent of his ankle injury( high v low, or 1,2,3 degree), I'd be quite hesitant to put him on the floor with the entire CAA 2019-20 season coming up. He is a major cog in determining our success this season.

Discretion is the better part of valor- a solid philosophy in coaching. RICE- recovery is the goal.
Keep the faith kick butt go Hens

We score down low with ease on our first 2 possessions then completely abandon it chucking 3’s.

Just chucking up 3s. Why abandon the game down low so quick?

This is a complete team. Finally!

Great to see Mutts and Goss play well down low.

Darling is a special talent. Kid can score in a variety of ways.

Great ball movement and sharing of the basketball.

And they play defense too.

This is gonna be a good year!

Really nice win. Started chucking up the 3s in the first half and then made the correct adjustments. 50+ points in the paint.

Tuesday will be tough.

There are loads of reasons to feel good about this squad. They deserve fan support.

Martin, despite disappointments with transfers out, just may have made transfers-ins vs. transfers-out, an overall plus.

Let's just beat St. Francis on Tuesday, then get home for us to see them in person.

But, But, But we got smoked in the PennState scrimmage!!! Have some of you forgotten?

Somewhere this season It will again be wise to think before drawing season long conclusions. We’ve got a damn good basketball team that has a long season ahead. I’m going to enjoy the whole journey; ups and downs.

Really nice road win in a place where we have struggled historically. And to win on a night when the 3's weren't falling is even more impressive. Especially good to see both Mutts and Goss play well in the post. How great would it be to be undefeated heading into the Stony Brook game the night before Thanksgiving??? Let's take care of St Francis and get back to Newark for some home cookin'!!!

Yeah, only the 7th time in a million years that we have won there.

I attended the Penn St game and was one of the posters who felt the team had a little too much pre-season hype. Penn St, I feel, was undervalued pre-season and is coming off a 15pt win at Georgetown. I want to see how we do at St Francis....other than this game and Nova, not much on the schedule to say that was a good win.

St Francis, despite losing, played @VCU tough and @Richmond went to OT. They are athletic and have 2 senior guards like UTSA who can score.

Mutts really impressed in the Lafayette game...played in control and used his athletic ability to score. Darling, despite Lafayette taking away the 3, showed his all-around game. He is not that fast or athletic but he knows how to use angles, change of pace, etc. Reminds me of a pretty good player in NBA (and not saying Darling is even in his league but similar styles) and that is Curry.
