I 100% agree that Chaz is what makes UMass go and we definitely have a better shot at winning if he doesn't play. But, we can't discount their post guys who will absolutely poop on our chests all game with the softies (other than Jenkins) that we have down low.
Putney, Carter, and especially Lalanne are no joke. I'm afraid we're going to get destroyed on the glass on both sides of the floor.
If we attack them the way St Bonnie did we can get them in foul trouble. They are not quick in the open court and they were bumping St Bonnie's guards all day and getting called for it. Of course it's GMU so I'm guessing the refs will just ignore it.
