Re: Team Coverage

Things have gotten a little quiet from Aces Basketball Land. Question for the board.....is there going to be anymore surprises like that of Williams this coming year? Have not heard anything on the eligibility front for our transfers and new recruits and was just curious.

Re: Breaking!!! Lance Wilkerson fired!

Compare Lance Wilkerson's gracious parting statement with that of Marty Simmons. Oh wait, Marty is still writing his. Maybe later. It's just impossible not to like Lance Wilkerson. I can't speak to the financial situation but money aside this is a bad decision. I sure would love to hear with specif...

Re: Breaking!!! Lance Wilkerson fired!

This does not pass the smell test. Lance did the work of at least 2 people, and the quotes in Hickey's article smack of hiring someone in the future to "align with development"? I'm not buying the budget cut slant at all. If I guessing, there will be another couple of people in the athlet...

Re: Game Thread: SIU at Evansville (Senior Day)

No comments on last night from your friendly neighborhood 5th grade YMCA coach, but I do have a question for the blog. In watching our games, MVC games and others, do we seem to sub more than most or are we about average? A bit on the high side for the MVC. Aces are 4th in the MVC in bench minutes,...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

We won how many games down the stretch? And read again....other than one game......who have I placed blame on? Players...not coaches. Again, and as others have posted...this blog is for those that can post about the state of the program (past, current and future). I could care less if Watson or Walt...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

The argument has existed for 25 years...the Aces have been in the wrong conference and playing in a league in which they could not compete in...then 1999 happened giving everyone hope...then for the next 20 years no post season appearances in the N tourneys...very rarely a winning conference record...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

Problem is in 20 years....we haven't had many .500 records either. Should we have deserved more looks.....not sure. Does the Valley this year....not sure our winner deserves a look. Wichita and Creighton were class of the field for a while and deserved to be. Loyola? Played great ball when they need...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

We may be young, we may be inexperienced and we may not have the most talent.....but some of the things we have watched down the stretch have nothing to do with any of those. I will say it again, and stand by it.....basketball is basketball......you dribble, you pass, you shoot, you rebound and play...
