The Curse of the Greek

So is it even worth it to play our games in Agganis Arena?

Let's see, since it opened last year, we have gone 2-3, beating only Vermont twice. Here are the games there:

W Vermont 61-55
L Northeastern 63-48
L Michigan 51-46
L Rhode Island 48-38
W Vermont 43-41

Granted, we schedule our best games at our new palace, so these are the toughest home games on our schedule. But we have only scored over 50 points once!! That's not good at all, I mean even with our offensive woes our team does average 57 points a game. Maybe it's the new rims, but for all the home-court advantages that come with the larger crowds, etc., we should be doing a little better.

Let's start to change that today versus Maine.

I don't think we have any home-court advantage when we play at the Greek. The place is usually dead silent, like it was for a good portion of this game, and it's just not as intimate an arena as the roof was.

I also get the feeling that the players like the roof much more as well. It's what they're used to. Matt Turner used to love playing in the roof, and said that he missed it when the America East Tournament was in Walter Brown Arena, over the ice. I think that once we get back to the roof we'll do much better.

sorry guys. I love the agganis, love it. It is just beautiful. it was plenty loud for the Vermont game last year, and michigan game this year. And the roof isnt loud, because normally no one other than you 2 and me is at the freaking games. THe players will hear you more, but it isnt loud...
