Bad southern trip and bad game tonight when it comes to beginning play prepared. That falls on the coaches. Last 2 seasons a step forward and now a step back. Recruiting just ok, no good bigs ever (try New Zealand) and lathargic play from guys who had improved only to fall back. Come on Gate!!!

They really seem to be struggling now and I don't know if a lot of improvement can be projected in conference play.  I hope I am wrong.

Freshman Will Rayman with 34 points, a record that beats that of Adonal Foyle, in 10 point road victory over Lafayette!

Thanks Coach Langel, your coaches and team.

Go 'gate!

The team played smart ball and Rayman is something else.  Go Gate!

Sorry, but when are we going to address the real issue?  Langel is not the answer.  He has shown that he cannot build a team that can complete in the league.  Time to give someone else a go.

Glad there is some interest in hoops. I expected better, but I have concluded it's a lack of talent. Why? That's not an easy answer. I have watched nearly every game this year in person or on tv. Langel is not the answer? Who is? Langel and staff are giving their all. Watch them during games. They coach.  I'm not sure the players are comprehending. Or capable. Apparently  Krmpotich is gone and I suspect there might be other players who can't or won't put forth the effort Langel and staff demand. Maybe the coaches aren't selling 'gate to recruits. Regardless, let's give Langel and staff support and resources to turn this around. Go 'gate!

I'm a hoops fan too and have watched most the games this year and it is easy to blame "lack of talent," but ultimately it is Langel's job to recruit players he can develop.  Any school offering full rides should be able to bring in players that can eventually compete as this level.  Where are all the players he developed?  Losing to some of these schools is embarrassing.  Langel will probably be around for a while but if Gate was serious about producing a winner, they'd ditch him...

Matt signed a contract extension last year at the same time they let Nicci go, he's here for another 3 seasons minimum.  We also finished near the top of the league the last couple of years and have won a few games in the PL tournament (I think, not looking up the stats).  This year we also graduated our best player in Tillotson who I'd say developed significantly on Matt's watch.

So yes, I'm not happy with the results this year but "change the coach!" every time a team has a down year isn't particularly realistic, especially when you're dealing with a sport like hoop where we're a traditional doormat.  I actually liked Emmett a lot & thought he got a raw deal on the way out of town... but that's not Matt's fault, and he has had the team playing competitively the last few years.  Here's to hoping he gets us back there!
