I learned a great lesson from that game....that the game is not over until the final buzzer. I was crowing to all my friends around us that my Aces had finally won at ISU. 2.8 seconds later I was catching a lot of cr@p. :D :D :D :D

A little bit lower profile than some of the others, but does anybody remember this one.

It was very rare that an MCC team was ranked in that time period. Crowd was wild, X had no chance that night with all the energy from the crowd.

We have that game on tape, the Aces just blitzed them in the 2nd half. If I remember correctly, it was really close at halftime and in the 2nd half it was a complete blowout.

Don't have that many games from that season, but pretty sure Kell was hurt a lot that year or that team would have been much better. I know in the tape Mike Blake and Dean Webster were commenting on his back and how he had already missed some games. The following season he was hurt all year, played some but wasn't the same.
