Re: Has our media finally arrived?

Even if only 100 shell out money to see the Aces, they shouldn't have to hold their noses watching Marty's stale, archaic, nepotist offense.

Re: Aces @ UNI

Your statement was about Coach Crew’s time here at Evansville. You can’t include his stats at Army to fit your narrative(that is a different animal). BUT if we are going to do that, you would have to include his run at St Louis where he DIDNT run the motion offense (he ran what is widely called the...

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

It doesn't give me great pleasure to say that unless Ryan Taylor drops in 40 per game the rest of the way the Aces will be home in time to watch the OVC Tournament at the Ford Center. After 11 years of stubborn Marty's boring, antique system, winning Arch Madness would only give UE cover to extend ...

Re: Mo. St game

I didn't see the game, and refuse to go back and watch it, but there is no question the officiating this year across the league has been horrendous. The refs may have affected the game yesterday, but they didn't lose it for us. If anyone is going to think that, then you might as well say we beat Va...

Re: Mo. St game

Reading this board is comical. The ups and downs some of the posters go through. Some of you need to get away from the monster drinks and not post till 24 hours after a win or loss. A win Sunday will have everyone feeling great and avoiding Thursday. Refs had ZERO to do with the outcome. ZERO. Mart...

Re: Mo. St game

Win or lose, the Aces play a boring stale brand of basketball. I can agree that Marty has made the most of an injury plagued year but it doesn't make the style less boring. Yes, we don't have the greatest athletes in the Valley but what amazing athlete would choose Evansville over 300 other schools?...

Re: Mo. St game

Refs stink to high heaven today. But that MO St dunk in the last 30 seconds where Blake never left the floor or raise his hands above his waist to contest it stunk even more. All spectator. No excuse for it.

Re: Game Thread Valpo @ Aces

Wins are good. But in this fan's opinion, this was your typical grind it out, boring Martyball game. Dribble dribble dribble until Ryan gets free on a cut. Ryan Taylor is a handful for sure and there is no way the Aces would have won if he had taken less than half of their shots. We won but it was u...

Re: Ramblings on a Sunday

Some interesting advanced stats metrics. Per 40 minutes of playing time: Blake Simmons (2013-14) - 11.5 Pts, 3.7 Reb, 2.7 Assists, 1.9 Turnovers Noah Frederking (2017-18) - 11.1 Pts, 3.2 Reb, 2.3 Assists, 2.0 Turnovers We play at a slightly slower pace this year as opposed to 2013. The offensive ef...
