Re: Game Thread: Cardinals at Aces

My Two Cents: 1. Solid Crowd..continues to build. Crowd got into it as we made a nice run to end first half and start the second half. Crowd was just under 5,700 and is just a start to what we are going to see over the coming months and years with this staff and direction. 2. Toughness..we won this...

Re: Game Thread - Kentucky Wesleyan at Evansville

I’ve been watching Aces games since the 1950s so I’ve seen a lot of teams, players and styles. I’ve attended all the National Championship teams games and except for a tour of duty in the military I’ve seen the best the Aces had to offer and the worse. While we are only three games into the season ...

Re: Game Thread - Kentucky Wesleyan at Evansville

I was wondering when PRB was going to get on here with a backhanded compliment. Well done good sir!!! I will remember that we “do not have a ton of talent” on this team “right now”. :roll: Certainly not intended that way. Just called our team for what it is. A seemingly good group of kids who play ...

Re: Game Thread - Kentucky Wesleyan at Evansville

Here’s a bright spot on tonight’s game. I saw two Freshman guards who are going to be impact players in the future. Newton and Givance showed me why McCarty brought them on the team. They are the kind of guard I see on other teams that are a pain in the ass. They can drive, pass, rebound and finish...

Re: Will the Aces finish last?

Pretty good analysis overall. I'll stick with my initial thoughts. 1. ISUr - Toss-up between them and SIU. 2. SIU - If Bol was more proven to be back, could see them above ISUr. Love Barry as a marketer for the conference, but not a big fan as a game coach. 3. Loyola - Good top 4, but not sure beyon...

Re: DeAndre Williams

Imagine we found out today - for the first time - that DeAndre signed with us and has 3 years of eligibility starting next year. We would be ecstatic. I have no problem grinding this season out and waiting to roll out DeAndre, Cunliffe, and Art all at the same time. I agree completely! We all need ...

Re: Illinois St.

Sorry, one last thing. A number of players who have left ISU in the past were shown the door by Coach DM, so he has certainly dismissed players before

Re: Illinois St.

Wow, where to start. While I am a ISU season ticket holder I am a UE fan. I am certainly not making excuses for MY. I get frustrated at times with the lax attitude around player issues as well at ISU. However I also know that what is reported on or is conjecture on message boards is not always factu...

Re: Illinois St.

Greetings all. Definitely will be interesting to see what happens from this. It's a bit strange to me that this is being classified as a hit-and-run by many, but his charges yesterday were misdemeanor and not felony as you see with most hit-and-run accidents. Maybe that's based on the amount of inju...
