Game Thread: Aces at Illinois State

Postby pafan » Fri Jan 04, 2019 6:09 pm

Illinois State took a loss at the buzzer on Wednesday; the Aces picked up a win in overtime.
Based on that pesky pre-season poll you wouldn't expect a tight game. But a lot has changed since that pre-season poll, and right now KenPom predicts the Aces will finish ahead of the Birds in the conference standings by one game.

Tip time: 3pm CT, Redbird Arena, Normal, Illinois
TV/Streaming: ESPN3 (free with most cable providers)
Radio: Purple Aces Sports Network: WJPS 107.1 and others

Aces have a chance to make a loud statement with a road win against ISU-red. Must shoot well, take care of the ball, keep Redbirds from too many offensive rebounds. DC in particular will have to have a big game to pull this one out.

Truthfully, after the non conference season both teams had, and the midweek games for both teams, I’m just not sure that the birds are mentally tough enough. I believe that buzzer beater broke them mentally. It all stems from the things I was saying about them in the preseason when I was saying that UE would finish higher then the birds. Too much selfishness, and all about me. The belief was ISU would show up, and the opponent would lay down for them. For “the best team in the Valley”, they are now 0-2 at Valpo. Look at their fan board, you now have the fans who were defending MY in the off season questioning why he is still on the team, and a very vocal crowd calling for HCDM’s head. Sorry, but overall, everything about this ISU team is broken.

And primed to give UE their first road win of the season.

Perfect game, and he's quite due, for The Irish Bomber to drop half dozen threes.

Will be very interesting to see which Redbird team shows up today. The team how had their best defensive game of the year at Valpo or the team that self-destructed in the last 2 minutes. I still see a Redbird win here, but am sure hoping the Aces can pull it out.
