Re: Game Thread: Aces at SIU

I’m not going to overthink this. Yes, the 2018-2019 Aces are usually going to lose the battle of the boards and commit several silly, unforced errors. I hoped 3-point shooting from Kuhlman, Feehan and Frederking would help neutralize the team’s deficiencies. It hasn’t happened. From 3-point range, ...

This. It was the Aces turn to take a beating.

Re: Game Thread: Aces at Trees

To me, this team has to play at an extremely high intensity level to have a chance to win MVC games...there just isn't enough talent. When they play at a high level, they have won some games, against some tough teams at that. The problem is they are human and there really isn't any team out there t...

Re: Games of Interest

You could sense in the warmups before the game that ISUr was just not going to have it last night. Lackadaisical is probably the best way to put it. This Redbird team has a tendency that when they get punched early they drop their heads. ISur got it back within 4 in the first half before Valpo went ...

Re: Attendance & other tidbits

I agree. My guess is that UE will be slotted anywhere between 5-7 in the preseason polls next year, with my guess being 7. I see SIU and probably Bradley coming in behind them. Valpo, MoState, and Drake I expect to definitely be ahead of us in the preseason polls just with what they have coming bac...

Re: Attendance & other tidbits

It's highly unlikely that Walter and the redshirts will be picked 1st in MVC preseason polls next year, and if he can finish top five we're moving in the right direction. Turning this ship around is going to be a process. Realistically we are probably a couple of years, and players yet to be named,...

Re: Attendance & other tidbits

I enjoyed the grid. It provides some perception on the MVC, and I can see why our fellow MVC schools would have collectively ranked us where they did. For now, I just snicker at the numbers, because they are a reflection of the Marty era. Take another survey once Walt and staff have another year un...

Re: Game Thread: Valpo at Evansville

I'll say it again.....I see a young Paris Lee in Givance. Having been able to watch Paris from day 1 at ISUr, I see much of the same drive, leadership skills, and defensive intensity in Givance.

Re: Valley Tidbits this Weekend

I wouldn't count out ISUr for next year either even though they lose Fayne, Evans, and Yarborough. They probably have as much talent sitting out this year as UE has in Bruniga (who will now officially redshirt), Fisher, Boyd, Hillsman, and Ndiaye. Fisher, Boyd, and Hillsman all averaged over 10 PPG...

Re: Valley Tidbits this Weekend

Just a quick note on valpo, assuming no transfers they only lose one player but pick up Eron gordon (Erics brother) from seton hall. It will probably be us and them battling for the valley title next year Boy I hope your right. Two Indiana schools battling for the top spot in The Valley would be te...
