Re: Game Thread: MSU at Evansville

Why does is take an entire half before our team either decides to play defense or the coaches finally get them to up their efforts on the defensive end? These poor-effort starts have become routine in many of our last games, so last night was not a fluke. This is the most serious concern of mine......

Re: Game Thread: MSU at Evansville

Questions: Why did Feehan sit after a brief time, and hitting a 3, never to reenter the game? It can't be because he wasn't defending well, my gosh, NO ONE played any defense the first half! Not much chance of breaking through a shooting sump from the bench. Why not use DC more...even if he fouls ou...

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

Someone else compared him to Casebier. I agree and think we need to land this young man. He would be a huge addition, and he's a great fit for Walter's system. Hey, if he is another Casebier I would take him as a superstar recruit...Casebier is my all-time favorite in the past years....he was talen...

Re: Wacky Conference

I watched the Loyola - Valpo game today in which both teams score in the 50's...I think Loyola had 56, Valpo 51, or something like that. Then i thought of our scores last night at SIU...with UE scoring 73 to their 78. I KNOW defense makes a difference, but we had 21 points of offense over the points...

Re: Game Thread: Aces at SIU

I have a serious question for those of you who have followed this team's returning players and the newly signed recruits...do you truly believe that we will have a good team this coming year? I am one of the old fans who has been waiting for so long, always hearing the "wait till next year"...

Re: Game Thread: Aces at SIU

Didn't get to see the game due to prior commitments....anyone who was there or who saw the televised game please give your opinion... Did we show intensity and energy? Were our turnovers due to lack of focus, sloppiness, or ??? How was our shooting, especially for 3? Refs? What happened to Givance.....

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: Game Thread: Aces at Trees

My opinion as to why we lost this game is that our coaches started guys who sleepwalked for the first minutes of the game, including having 3 turnovers our first 3 possessions....the Sycamores took advantage, hitting several wide-open 3's and gaining confidence with each shot that fell....and the ha...
