Re: Has our media finally arrived?

No connection to KJ, just the latest example of Marty recruiting talented high school players and trying to force round pegs into the same one square hole. Relegating power forwards into backup centers is another. I just get tried of posters blaming our guys for lack of talent when in fact they are...

Re: Has our media finally arrived?

There's some interesting questions here the media could consider asking. The only question I'd like to be ask is, Why does KJ cross mid court stop and observe? This kid has played his whole life faking, faint, quick step, blow by, spin, break down defenses, score or dish out. He looks like he's pla...

Re: What the Aces need to do to avoid the play-in game

Unlikely. I believe the most likely scenario is 0-4 to finish the 6-12 in conference like I predicted earlier this season. However, most winnable will be @Northern Iowa, followed by Southern Illinois, @ISU, then Loyola. I don’t see any way the team gets out of Thursday at this point.

Re: Mo. St game

On a serious note, MSU is the only team that we have a winning record against under Marty. Not taking the two new ones into consideration because Loyola has only been in four years, and Valpo is a HL team right now. That means that under Marty, they have beaten them in games that they shouldn’t hav...

Re: Mo. St game

Just Need other guys to step up and help Taylor yes his stroke is back but Blake is a senior and needs to have himself a game again after being quiet against Valpo if DC can have himself a similar game that he had the first time against Mo State that could give us an advantage if we had Dru I think...

Re: 2018 KS C Darnell Cowart (JC)

I didn’t know Marty was trying to bring football back. This kid is as big as a left tackle. If he has feet like a left tackle, might not be a bad get as a 4/5 hybrid.

Re: Ramblings on a Sunday

The other night during the I'll. State game the announcers noted UE's dominance of having the leading scorer in the MVC, Besides Colt, DJ, and now Ryan, I think they said we've had a top 3 MVC scorer for the last 10 years. Yet we tend the hover at the bottom and can't make post season. What's the m...

Re: Game Thread - Aces @ Illinois State

Thought about it, and have a few things to say here. First, the boys played tough without Dru, and should have WON this game. Illinois State is not as good on court, and their role players are not having the career years as they did last year. This is now two games against this team they should have...

Re: Down the stretch

Just curious here, but why spend that money to play in the CBI or CIT when it could be better served being used elsewhere? I mean, a few grand in the recruiting budget or coach’s pocket (assistant) would be better than beating (or even losing) to a NJIT in a tournament that would mean absolutely not...
