Bonas Win , 74-61 over UMass 
 
 
12 and 5 now, but those 5 losses were so bad it doesn't matter. No way to the dance without winning the A10 tourney.
 
Bonnies victorious in 11 of last 12. Impressive stretch. 4-0 league start.

Now the "fun" begins Sat afternoon at VCU.

And those 5 losses are 3 with Osun out, the game he got hurt and played less than 20 minutes and the UB game that he also played less than 20 minutes due to early foul trouble and eventually fouling out

Osun is a game changer for sure. One of the more impactful players I can remember and he is just a Soph. Umass' freshman center was having his way with us while Osun was on the bench with foul trouble last night. Once O re-entered the game he shut him down and we won handily.

 

This team is fun to watch. This Saturday against VCU could be very interesting if Osun can stay on the court. I believe we can win if so.

The UB loss wasn't horrible, it is the Canisius, Ohio & Siena loss that kills their profile with or without Osun.  If they could of won those games they would of been 15-2, 4-0 in conference & sitting pretty strong for an at large,.  I wouldn't count their at large bid dead yet but it is going take beating Dayton & probably VCU once with no other bad losses to get in.  The bubble should be pretty soft this year.

That Rutgers win is looking way better now than it did at the time.  Pretty much turned the season around, too.

That Rutgers win was huge.  Rutgers has a great chance to go dancing.  They are a quality team.  Good resume building win especially on the road.

I love the optimism.

 

I  actually saw a game in the armory once, and I am a Saint Bona Alum (76), so I will not be accused of being a jump on the bandwagon type of fan.

 

The SNUB, from a few years back just haunts me.

 

We are a good young (improving) team, but I am sorry there is no way the NCAA picks us with losses to Canisius and Siena (Ohio, Vermont and UB are good teams)

 

I know how I sound, I'm hoping that we can go 12 - 4 the rest of the way (tourney included)  Dayton is a beast and I figure a few more road losses.

 

That makes us possibly 24 - 9 , in a good mid-major conference and we would not have a prayer of being picked.

 

The middle of the pack "Power Five" finishers would go first.

 

 

 

I hope that I am wrong, but either way the future appears to be good for many years ahead.

 

Go Bonas !

I don't think we're going to be an at large bid.  I think if Osun never got hurt, then we'd be talking.  But, I do think it's like last year - get that double bye, and hope somebody knocks out Dayton, and we've got a chance. 

 

The snub still haunts me, too.  Plus last year, dominating SLU and then having to come back to even have a chance and missing the three pointer.................Should have been 4 Dances in 8 years!  

 

The next two years, though.  We're playing all underclassmen - watch out!

Something in the UMass game apparently.  And, the way they keep injury info even more secret than NHL teams, I don't know if we'll ever know.

LOL on the NHL. I was bummed when they said he was out, not sure it would helped that much today. Awful shooting

That Fatts guy is really good.

 

The Bonnies are something like 1-7 without Osun.  And, that UB loss, he hardly played.  You would hope the team wouldn't be THAT dependent on one player.

On second thought, the Bonnies better win that tournament if they want to go dancing this year.

is he expected to play Saturday against GM?  The only reason I ask is I am going to Vegas this weekend, plan on spending about 15 hours in the Harrahs sports book Saturday & may put some money on GM if he is out of the lineup.

Definitely need to win the tourney.

 

The Bonnies treat injuries like state secrets.  So, I really don't know.  I would sure hope he'd be back by then...........Good luck in Vegas!

I was at the UMass game.  I got clocked in the head and had a bandage on his forehead.  In the second half their center jacked him in the chops.  He played like he had a head injury.
