Re: Game Thread: Northern Iowa at Evansvile

This a question that I have in my mind now that this MVC season finds us dropping like a rock....does this "performance" make it more difficult to recruit really good talent? Do top-ranked players who might have been considering UE because of our new coaches and their vision for the progr...

Re: Game Thread: Northern Iowa at Evansvile

Agree with the last two posts...talent isn't there...mental and physical. Also do agree about getting spoiled by some of the performances earlier in the year. Team doesn't have the physical talent to play like that every night, it is frustrating but it's the reality of coaching changes. I keep sayi...

Re: 2019 JUCO SG Sean McNeil OH

I would rather we as fans not toss around the players names like that. But no question there will be some players who are now playing whose court time could very well dwindle. For sure the playing time landscape will change. To some players this is why they put in all the work but to some others pe...

Re: Game Thread: MSU at Evansville

This is a gripe, but I think I am entitled to it. After dishing out money for 2 season tickets, driving 2 hours total, back and forth for each game, I think it only fair that our team shows up to play ball! We had ZERO defense the entire first half, and not that much offense....18 point hole to dig...

Re: 2019 F Michael Moreno

PC was great for his size. Moreno is bigger and can be even more of a force inside.

Re: Game Thread: Aces at SIU

Once again, tough loss. Not for lack of effort, just a lack of talent and depth. I know we keep saying next year and have for nearly 20 years now, but I do believe next year will be the start of much better Aces basketball with a better outcome than we have had to endure for two decades. Keep gettin...

Re: Game Thread: Valpo at Evansville

Sure nice to break the four game losing streak with a home court win in front of 5,800 announced. The team simply found their stroke and offense the last five to ten minutes of the first half getting within 3 at half. Our defense was pretty darn solid the entire game which allowed us to hang around ...

Re: Attendance & other tidbits

There is so much I could say about all of this. What might be perceived as a negative by some can also be seen as a positive for another. And things do go in cycles. And after a long long drought under Merfield and Simmons that would eradicate most any program in the country. The passion for Aces b...

Re: Game Thread: Bradley at Evansville

Losses are tough. I guess we could be riding a 7 game losing streak like IU. I hope it does not reach 7 but unless we get out of this funk we are in it is very possible. Earlier in the season we were exceeding some expectations for sure but now we are simply meeting them. If we play with no enthusia...

Re: Walt suspended

I think at the home game this week when Walt is introduced, we should all stand longer, clap our hands and yell for him for supporting the players and backing him up in sending a message that he has their back. I am not advocating clapping and cheering for a coach who simply got suspended and compla...
