Re: AUSTIN PEAY

I've never seen a college team give up 24 offensive rebounds before. And they only lost by 8 points and had it down to 2 at 72-70 with five minutes to play! Just think if they had only given up a horrendous 17 or 18 offensive boards - they probably would have won the game. Still like the fight in th...

Re: MOREHEAD STATE

Great win at Morehead for the first time in 5 years! Being thin on the bench hurts when two of our starters get in early foul trouble, but it’s giving guys like Balogun valuable minutes in crucial situations. Brown is playing better and dishing some great assists! But he still makes foolish drives a...

Re: SIU Edwardsville

Awful shot selection in the first half. They have no business shooting 3-19 from 3-point range.
I realize we’re down another player, Cruickshank, who does shoot well from outside, but that number of shots without working the offensive sets is ridiculous.
All that and we still have a 30-28 lead!

Re: SIU Edwardsville

Key phrase - “no letdown”. I hate to be negative, but a run like this either runs out of gas or runs into a superior opponent. Other times, the momentum and confidence built during a run allows a team to beat a superior team. You just don’t want to see a subpar effort against a lesser opponent, whic...

Re: EASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY

We had all five starters in double figures with Brown having an off night - only 12 points. The EIU announcers on ESPN+ identified one of the biggest improvements; half court defense. Those dunks given up in the full court press still look bad and we gave up some easy dunks in the half court D. But ...

Re: EASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY

EIU was pretty good when we played them in Richmond and they've gotten better. But EKU has improved as well. I think coach AW struggled to find a rotation of players that would work together on the court early on and now he's found that. He's actually limited to who comes off the bench due to injuri...

Re: SEMO - Admiral Ackbar

An ugly win, but still a win. Got out-rebounded by one on a horrible shooting night, with almost all of the offensive rebounds coming in the second half. After the last three years, ANY win is good, regardless of how unattractive it is. Now, let’s see if we can keep the mojo going on the road at EIU!

SEMO - Admiral Ackbar

This has all the markings of a trap game. SEMO is dead last in conference play.
This is where we find out how well AW can prepare his team.

Re: UT Martin

I didn’t even know Hicks was hurt. AW has to use Balogun more and Anderson will get more minutes, too. Maybe this will force Balogun to get better faster, who knows? He’ll have his share of hard minutes, no matter. At least it’s fun to watch some of these bench guys emerge. Good win. We need to keep...

Re: UT Martin

This team needs to learn how to rebound, then it will learn how to win!!!🤣🤣🤣
