Wow another loss and some rally bad basketball. Our team leaders aka miles wright were no shows and we demonstrated some awful coaching once again. I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt to McLaughlin laatbyear but we are in the midst of another disaster. We are poorly prepared and poorly coached. Are you kidding Brown is that much better. Just shows that mike Martin can recruit and coach and McLaughlin can’t no mor excuses about work together and work hard. We are a bad team with zero o leadership and not going in the right direction. Harry what have you done?

The Brown fans have the exact opposite take from the game as you did.

I would feel that way if I were a Brown fan as well. My point is despite the second half heroics we give up giant leads and should have adjusted in the first half. I’ don’t believe Brown is more talented and Dartmouth could have gone inside much earlier based on scouting them better. Brown is a young team and we let them dismantle us in the first half. So yes we can give credit for the comeback but it’s ultimatwly about who wins the game and we aren’t doing that much. 3 Dicision 1 wins to bad teams and one Division 3 team. Our ability to charge back indicates talent but why aren’t we able to play a full game. I would argue we need leadership on the floor which is very inconsistent right now. It’s very frustrating because I do believe the league is wide open but we aren’t positioned to take advantage of that. Our team simply isn’t ready to play when they step on the floor. Is that on the coach? The captains? Our seniors? Maybe all three. Our freshman and sophomores have talent but we don’t seem to be able to pull it together. Kudos to Emery for a great game. Chris Knight and Andrease as well What happened to Wright and Barry? Teams with good guards shut us down and we don’t adjust fast enough. Same story last year

We are literally two plays away from being 2-1 in league and toasting McLaughlin as a basketball genius.

But alas we are not and instead are 0-3. We can cheer the comebacks but the poor first half play and inability to put a full game together is the issue and bottom line. This isn’t coaching genius it’s poor coaching

Tighter NCAA transfer rules and Dartmouth could be anywhere from 2-2 to 4-0

With Boudreaux, Knight, Rai and Jackson on the floor, and Barry shooting three pointers, Dartmouth would have been formidable indeed. However, even without Boudreaux, they are good, play hard and are getting better every game.

You are what your record says you are. We could be good but we are not good and we unfortunately can’t put a full game together. That has now been the case for the past 4 contests. I hope we figure it out because we do have talent and the league is not that strong overall this year with opportunities for everyone There is definitely something missing with our team chemistry or desire when we start games. Our defense is still a major problem and a lot of that has to do with effort while on the floor and changing defensive schemes to make up for short comings which is coaching reads. Glad to see our freshman contribute

Our guys have not given up on themselves. They are getting better every game. I see more good things happening. Knight, Jackson, Rai, Emery, Sistare, Johnson and Barry---good guys and good players. Go for it! Wright's repeated "disappearances" are unacceptable and he should be permanently "disappeared".

Worth noting that Wright now routinely draws the opposition's best defender. Used to be that when teams collapsed on Boudreaux, he'd get open looks from 3 and uncontested buckets. No more.

He still brings it on D every game, and has improved statistically across the board.

If I'm reading the Dartmouth website correctly, Wright is 14 of 39 from the floor in the four Ivy games thus far played (Harvard, Harvard, Brown and Yale). He bageled the second Harvard game.

It also appears that he's playing almost the whole game.

I haven't focused on his D and therefore have no reason to doubt what you said. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll pay attention to his D next Friday and Saturday..

While Miles has some good defensive games he does not play good defense the entire game. He should be a lock down defender but he picks and chooses when he wants to play hard. He disappears and isn’t reliable yet plays major minutes. It’s not a new issue and has been the story of his career. Miles could be an outstanding defender but it’s apotty. Yes I agree there’s been some improvement but not enough for a senior in my humble opinion.
