Aces beat a quality team and I am elated. Lots of positives. I am continually amazed at the type of production Riley continues to give - I never would have expected that.

Well, now we can say Evansville is in first place in the MVC. :lol: When was the last time that happened?

I just assumed the Aces played so well they broke the Internet. LOL

I figured that we would have to win by outscoring opponents this year, scores like 82–77 in regulation. But that’s six straight games where our defense has been outstanding, allowing 1.0 point per possession or less.

UE now has the 105th best defense according to KenPom.

I will take the victory no matter how it happened, we needed this. I was unable to follow the game, so I was pumped when I went to ESPN to see the final score. It's a real shame we don't have Hill for one more season.

That's as plausible a theory as any I've heard from my server supplier. I'll go with it :angryue:

After the game was over I switched to the Valpo-IllState game ... 6 minutes left ... I thought, well I will leave it on for a minute or two ... yawn ... not much going on ... with about 2 min. left, I decided to just leave it on because I had nothing better to watch ... holy jumping terwilikers ... you can't cough up a game like that. Recommended you get the replay and watch the last 4 minutes or so. This is going to be a very interesting Valley season.
Thought the Aces showed they can play with people if they don't get sloppy. Feehan needs to make some kind of statement even when he's not shooting. I can see him getting less PT if that keeps up.
As an aside, did anybody else get weary of the ongoing yabber between Peach and Marcus over the coach-in-your-face stuff?

Way to go Aces! Glad everything is back up and running, thanks for all your effort pafan! And it is a terrible shame Hill lost a year.
8-19 .....1986
16-12 ....1987 --- MCC Champ
21-8 .....1988 --- NIT
25-6 .....1989 --- NCAA
Key point, be patient, never judge a coach on Year 1!

Yes...agree with you on everything. Way to go Pafan!

We can blame Marty for his terrible blunder with Hill which cost him a full year of eligibility.
