Re: Is this the new UE logo

I'm OK with the logos, the attempt to get away from misidentification of UE as Evansville Univ. or Evanston Univ. or placing us geographically somewhere near Chicago. I get all that. Regardless of the logos and mascot change, I would like to see more evidence of initiatives that are fueling growth ...

Re: NCAA extends three point line

I'm actually okay with both changes as they sort of cancel each other out to me. Moving the line back to the international distance makes sense to me as this made-up interim distance set by the NCAA never made sense to me anyway. I like the shot clock being reset to only 20 as well as it does elimin...

Re: 2019-2020 Starting Lineup

Givance, KJ, Hall, Deandre and Cunliffe. We won't have an offense anchored in the lane by a one dimensional center like Dainius. All five starters will be facing the basket. Most MVC teams don't have dominating big men so defense is not that big an issue. For the teams that do, Peace will be seeing...

Re: 2019 JC PF Demontay Dixon

I thought Dixon was a good fit back in October and still do, and I think Walter knows what to do to make this kid successful! Deep? Having 13 eligible players is huge, having so many versatile players is a plus as well. We wanted another big man and we got one! Congrats to the kid from Tennessee I ...

Re: 2019 JC PF Demontay Dixon

Anybody know where Evansville University is? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, I like this. He's the stretch 4 that most good clubs have now. When he originally signed with ISU he needed to put on some weight, but otherwise he looked the part.

Re: 2019 F Michael Moreno

How do you know the other 2 schools don't already know? I know when my friend's son committed he told the coaches 2 days before the formal announcement at the school. Regardless give the kid his moment.

Re: 2019 JC PF Demontay Dixon

Demontay was a starter for his team until the last few games. His numbers when starting were good. Not sure why he did not start the last few...not sure if it was an injury or perhaps something else. As most of us know already, he originally committed to Illinois State out of high school but later ...

I agree completely. Pat is great. The Valley has a lot of very strong beat writers.

Re: Everything changes now - New CP article

I just want to finish top half, and more specifically top 4. Get some momentum going for year 3 because that is the year where we keep everyone and lots of valley teams lose key players. Year 3 my expectations will be to win the valley That's my hope as well to finish in the top half. I think that ...
