A loss today at home to winless Monmouth would be inexcusable.

Not going to happen. I think we will see a different start to the game today.

They are playing the wrong pregame tape on Eagle 107 (Northeastern) Hope they get the right game. Don’t want to live through that one again!

Would love to see Bruce Moore, Sotos, and Sestina/Newman score a bunch of points. More scoring, less playing.

Was hoping for an easy game, but listening to Coach ND, it sounds like we will be playing Duke today, lol.

If the 3s are not falling, how about trying some twos. Duh!

Other than Sestina, this team looks really bad at home. I have never seen a team play so poorly at home. Luckily, Monmouth is just plain bad this season.

Good news: We’re winning at half.

Bad news: Literally everything else. This game is terrible.

Monmouth is the worse team I’ve seen since we played Northeastern!

I slept through most of the second half. No, really, I took a nap.

Good to win . . .

Much better defensive effort today (after the first few minutes). Monmouth may not be very good, but I think we made them look worse than they are. Now we just need more shots to fall.

The seond half was better in large part because our gaurds drove to the basket more. There’s no inside-outside game that’s for sure.

If a 22 point win could ever be painful to watch, this was it.

Yes a win is a win, but it WAS painful to watch. In the first half on offense the whol team camped out along the 3 point lint. Moving to the inside was off limits.

True. But I think a big reason for that was the Monmouth defense. They were big and packed all defenders close to the basket. Their two centers were both bigger than Sestina and their two PF's a bit bigger than Moore. Guards were big as well. The Bison attempted 34 threes and I think the shooters were open on all of them. The only ones I didn't like were the ones from Jones - and he was wide open also.

Overall they made almost 33% of the threes - equivalent to 49.2% on twos. And that was with two good long-range shooters, Mackenzie and Sotos - making an uncharacteristic 3.of 13, all of them good looks.

In the second half, they were able to get to the rim a little more – which is good. But I didn't have a big problem with them taking the open threes that the Monmouth defense was giving them. One good thing in this game, by the way, was Andrew Funk drilling two second half threes. Despite being a good shooter in practice and in high school, he had been in a miserable slump. Hopefully this will give him the confidence to keep making those shots.

You don’t need any expertise to say that that game was a painful watch, but shifting to the positive...Avi Toomer!! If that is the Avi we see from here on in, that is a huge plus!

I need video of Avis putback because that was just ferocious.

Yes, Avi finally played how we all know he is capable of playing! I've been waiting for a game like that from him.

Having seen him score 40something in a high school game I knew the offensive outburst was possible. Nice to see it happen. Best goal tend I have ever seen.

Avi seemed to be much more aggressive offensively. Is this something that the coaches encouraged, or did he decide to do this on his own?

Nathan Davis addressed the shot imbalance after the game:

"I don't care if we shoot 70 threes in a game as long as we're working inside-out and getting good looks. They collapsed the lane and played great help defense and forced us outside. We had good looks. They just didn't fall."

Don’t know if Avi’s performance had anything to do with it, but his parents were in the house.

Looked like Alexander Rice was at the end of the Monmouth handshake line and sharing greetings and laughs with our coaches and players at the end of the game.

He also spent some time in the bison locker room after the game.

Here's a different view that stays with the action a little longer:
