Evansville is fighting - as previously mentioned Illinois State just has so many more weapons. Down 59-56 with 4:05 left.

Can we dig down any deeper to pull this one out?

Good effort, just so out-talented. Gutsy and realize w need bodies, but Boo makes terrible decisions.

Boo has done this for years....takes the ball in among the trees...turnover as a result. This particular time it probably cost us the game.

73-71 Aces down with 20.6 left. Taylor has been super tough today.

Hats off to the Aces. Much more competitive game than I thought it would be. Hard to beat a talented team without your best player. The kids are playing hard. Hopefully Aces can pull out a few more wins

Come on, you're telling me Taylor wasn't fouled on that three attempt?

Simmons leads the league in minutes played, RT is second.

I don't want to sound like a complainer but I thought that Ryan Taylor was fouled on his last 3-point attempt

Great ballgame, a lot closer than most of us thought it would be. Too bad it was the Aces going home with the L.
