Snow Day

So I wake up today and there are 2-3 inches of snow on my car. My immediate thought was that maybe tonight's game would be canceled. Maybe We would have an extra day to prepare, but we don't. And the game is on for tonight. Hopefully we can figure out a way to get a win. We have a habit of being up double digits, but not being able to maintain the intensity that got us the lead for the entire game. Maybe we can rectify it tonight because the players didn't have class today as the semester is over. Something's got to give.

That being said I would like to give a shout-out to Brother Bilaal as it is his Birthday celebration tonight in downtown Red Bank.

Oh and I do apologize for the hiatus, things get kinda crazy around the holiday season.

It's a Cold, Cold World

So, we lost again this past Saturday. We played at Quinnipiac, which means that I had to drive up to Hamden, CT to watch us play a good first 10-15 minutes, and then play like crap for the rest of the game. If, and I know that it is a big if, we can play with intensity for a full 40 minutes, we will win more games than we lose this year. That being said, we haven't put together a full half yet. We just have to get mentally tougher, however you do that.

We have a game today, at home, on TV, against FDU on the MSG channel for those of you interested and have access to this channel. I will be that tall guy on the Monmouth University bench, if you are looking for me.

Did I mention that it is cold outside? Stay warm people.

League Play

It starts tomorrow. A new Season. Practices have been more more energetic the past couple of days. More so than I have ever seen this year. It is actually good to see. This comes on the heels of getting our asses handed to us on Tuesday by Seton Hall. They hung 101 points on us. 101. When I was at Maryland and we played Monmouth, we didn't even score 100 points. And that was the year we won the Championship! I mean seriously, 100 points to Seton Hall?! Seton Hall?

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, I am really excited for league play to start up. I think we have a really good chance at being really competitive this year. If we make it to the top half of the league and get to the NEC tourney, we all know how tournaments can turn out. So it all begins this Saturday at Quinnipiac. Pray for us. Until next time.
