Lets stop babying Paul Newman and get him in the game. Give the big three (Foulland Thomas, Brown) a rest and start Newman, Sotos and Meeks with Robertson and Moore in there too. Make it a little closer game.

I assume you’re talking about Paul Newman the actor and not the lightly recruited freshmen center playing behind the PL POY?

American will once again be without starting center Mark Gasperini, who last year was one of the league's top few freshman. He has missed the entire season with a concussion.

American needs more than Mark Gasperini

On a separate note the thought of seeing any zone is out the window. If we didn’t use tactically in OOC play it’s a foregone conclusion in PL. The way we defend the strong side of the court should fit well against American and HC because of what they try to do. Colgate and Lehigh really with the only personnel that can try to exploit. Defensive numbers should really improve from here as rotations will look a lot better. That’s all I can see from here. Still tough to win on the road, and you still have to compete hard every time out but I don’t see many bumps in the road from here.

Not to sound too optimistic but I think its going to be a runaway here. Their goal has always been the Patriot League so they will be on their game and Foulland had a breakout game last week and it will continue tonight especially with their center out. Zach and Stephen Brown will play well also. I'd like to see Bruce Moore do well and of course Robertson also. Tonight may be a good chance to see Robertson do his thing and I hope Newman gets some minutes. New season starts tonight!

Paulie, I have yet to see Bruce Moore play well. It would be very nice to see it happen. He seems to have all of the tools.

I don't see Sa'eed Nelson shooting around, I wonder if he's hurt.

Toomer walking without crutches and without the boot, that's a good sign.

With Nelson out, no reason we don’t win this game by 20-25 without breaking a sweat. A little sloppy early.

Good close out of the half.

Any word if there will be a Roku app to watch games this season?

What a difference the Conference schedule makes! It's great to hold anyone to under 80 points - let alone under 60. It wasn't a thing of beauty but we're finally at .500. We won't win them all but this team should cut through the PL like a knife through warm butter. Especially if we get MacKenzie and Toomer back.

The area of most improvement fr us, which enabled us to hold them under 60 was our free throw defense.

Nana Dunking, Zach bulling his way in, Brown with his soft jumpers...Even Birdsong try as he might is going to have a hard time making this an exciting year. They will win the League, with a Paulson asterisk included, next year its back to PL .500 so enjoy the ride.

That's a long way back. The last time the Bison were .500 or worse in PL play was 2008-09. Counting this season, BU will have finished above .500 in 24 out of 28 seasons since the PL was formed - usually well above .500.

While next year's team clearly will not be as good as this year's team, I think the talent is there to contend for a top spot in league play. Few teams in the league will have a better starting lineup than Sesina, Mackenzie, Sotos, Toomer, and Moore - and the bench should be fairly good. Biggest need is a solid backup center.

Yes, I firmly believe next year will bring another PL Championship. I don't see them being much less talented than this year's team.
