Re: Game Thread: Trees at Evansville

We all know we need to be patient and are being spoiled a bit by wins over Ball State and Loyola at home and a few close losses on the road vs good competition. It is becoming "less likely or less expected" that we will lose because we do show signs of being a pretty good team. Walter has ...

Re: Attendance

Second in the Valley in home attendance. 5059. Illinois St. 1st at. 5092. And were 1 game under 500 I don't think anyone who predicts we will lead the conference in attendance next year would be going too far out on a limb. Heck, we are only 33 behind Illinois State and finishing second this year i...

Re: Game Thread: Trees at Evansville

Agree, tough loss. We simply did not play as well as we did Tuesday. We had too many turnovers, too much standing around and we had no answer in the paint on defense, especially when DC was on the bench. He is our only 5 and when others have to play that spot, we are flat out weak on defense in the ...

Re: Pitt transfer Peace Ilegmah

I agree about not holding a scholarship. Any of a number of things can happen that can put a strain on a team if you don’t use all the resources available. Thirteen spread over five positions does not leave much of a margin for error. I’m not advocating giving one just to fill it. The recipient mus...

Re: Game Thread: Trees at Evansville

I see we open as a 4 point favorite. I would not have figured this a month ago, let alone nine months ago. I hope the weather is only bad enough to keep some of the Tree fans from making the trip only to see our Aces put an L on their resume. Would make for a long day for sure. If we can get 7,000-8...

Re: Big crowd Saturday?

The unfortunate fact is the weather is going to scare fans from both TH and Evv to not show up unless there is a change before Saturday morning. Hope it warms up sooner and starts to melt off..otherwise we will not get to the 7,000. Too bad.

Go Aces ! Beat The Trees...

Re: Game Thread: Loyola at Evansville

I bet we haven’t seen our best game of the year or our worst game of the year. I’m going to keep that in mind the next time we watch an ugly road loss. Consistency will develop in time. Right now, I’m going to use the highs to stay ecstatic about the future and take the lows in stride. The directio...

Re: Game Thread: Loyola at Evansville

Goes to show that home court can be a big advantage. Bro-in-Law said that We had about 5000 at Ford, including a nice, noisy student section. Good for the Aces and good for UE! Bring on ISUb.....one game at a time. Yes, just over 5,000. Would have been more had it not been on television via CBS. Th...

Re: Games of Interest

Has anybody taken notice of the SHOX? They're 7-7 overall and 0-2 in the AAC. From the looks of their schedule they could go 0-6 before winning a game in conf.. I predict in a couple of years they may want to play our Aces and we should tell them no or best we can do is a 3 and 1..3 games at home, ...
