I would settle for how he thinks we lost.

There are a lot of times the best team did not win a the game. And how many times have you heard people say the best team didn't win tonight. I've seen a lot of basketball games in my life and I think overall Drake is a better team than Evansville is. And if we meet them in the MVC tournament I think Drake will show everyone who is the better team I hope I am wrong but that's just my opinion

In head to head competition, UE and Drake have played twice. Drake won by 16 the first time. UE won by 4 yesterday. Combined, Drake won 154-142 and is two games ahead of UE in the MVC standings. None of that is definitive on the question of who is better but there it is anyway.

But, you always have the Transitive Property of Sports to fall back on. It shows clearly that UE is not only better than Drake but also better than Duke.

In the spirit of "Transitive Property of Sports" I think it showed that Drake fared better in the cool and rain on the road than the Aces did in the cold, freezing rain, and snow. Should be a good game in St. Louis should that occur.

Well, what the game last night showed was that Drake was 9 points better than we were in the SECOND half. I was not pleased with our performance in the second half, and posted at the time that I thought the Aces would have to gut out a win in the end. I think most of us would agree that if Drake would have played with the same conviction in the first half that they did in the second half, we would not have won the game. But that was just one game on one night in January. Who knows what will happen the next time they play. I must admit though, that if it were to happen, I probably wouldn't put much money on the Aces.

Purple Whiskers,
That is a great link.
I discovered that the Aces were better than all the NCAA Champions of the past decade, and not only that, but UE and even Oakland City, were better than the Kentucky team that was undefeated going into the Final Four 3 years ago.
And both IU and Purdue were better than Alabama in football this past season. Lol
