Looks like I am going to have to watch this game on replay. With the UT/Oklahoma game on at 11am and a baby shower for my sister-in-law at two and travel at halftime of the UT/Oklahoma game, you get the idea. Being in Austin and my wife being a UT grad, you have to make the wife and family happy.

Will be trying to catch score updates and possibly even the radio broadcast here and there when traveling or on my bluetooth earpiece (if possible), but otherwise will catch the ESPN3 version of the game later today.

Go Aces!!!

This team needs Givance at the point 32-35 minutes. Anemic without him.

More than 5 minutes have gone by, and the Aces have not scored a point against a DIII team. I wouldn't have believed it if I weren't seeing it.

It took more than 7 minutes for the Aces to make a basket. The announcers seem to think that Albion is the best defensive team we have seen. Not bloody likely. It's impossible to get up for a team like this.

Completely inexcusable performance in the 1st half. It’s one thing to have problems shooting but the lack of focus and effort so far is a disgrace.

8 for 31 start is not going to win you very many ballgames. Thank goodness, at least at HOME, the opponent has shot just as bad if not worse. The stuff I saw today are the things I have worried about on both ends all year. No way this shouldn't be a 20 pt game.
Just my opinion...I could be wrong!

Worst half of the year. For those who predicted the Aces would score more than 100 today, they will have to have a 76 point second half to do it. They would be at least 20 points behind every MVC team I have seen this year.

20 minutes of that comedy of errors is enough.

I missed most of the first half... I certainly didn't expect the game to be this close.
Let's get this McCarty Party started.

Consider yourself lucky.
