Re: Our coach

This is a powerful story. As the father of a son in his 20’s battling leukemia, this is inspiring. It’s also sobering to know that this disease can strike anyone at any age.
I would also add that he will always be battling this. I hope and pray he stays healthy.

Re: Transfer from West Virginia

And I would consider Brown a #2, more than a #1. It’s exciting to see new talent coming in, but I’d like to see at least one more forward and preferably two more.

Re: Recent Activity

He’s just been hurt so often and inconsistent when he’s on the floor that I think it’s best for both parties that he move on.
I think Balogun has huge upside and has three years left, so he’s going to gobble up more minutes, plus there are other big men coming in.
I wish him well.

Re: Trevin Wade

Can I ask a question that may have been answered somewhere else. How was it Curt Lewis was academically ineligible for the whole year? Could he not have retaken the ACT sometime during the school year and passed it? Or is there a cutoff for eligibility and he didn’t qualify in time? And does anyone ...

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

How about just hitting some foul shots to crawl back into this?

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

8:00 left and it’s just a 10-point game. The defense has dictated the pace they wanted, but just haven’t converted on the offensive end. Can they break through by hitting some shots down the stretch and steal this one???

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

It’s certainly early 4:39 left in first half), but this is the most aggressive defense I’ve seen Eastern play all year.
Gotta hit some shots!

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

We could play our A+ game and at least potentially still lose. Part of the problem I see it is that our success is often predicated on putting other teams in positions when they panic and make mistakes. Belmont just doesn't do that. They're so disciplined! This is a great point. I think we shot a b...

Re: Belmont OVC semis game

I would agree on defense. Less pressing and concentrate on half court. I don’t know how you change offense so drastically at this point and get the ball out of Brown’s hands. Even if you design it differently, Brown has to comply. I don’t see him doing that unless he’s on the bench. I think running ...
