Hey, I can think randomly...

1) We were picked 10th in preseason polls. According to Sagarin's computers we are currently ranked higher than Ind. St. (picked 5th), higher than Ill. St. (picked 1st) and have already beat the two highest current ranked teams (Drake and Loyola). Mid-season Coach of the Year, You Bet!

2) When this team plays fast, loose, with a purpose, they flat "rock". They struggle when defenses either make them slow down and think or they slow themselves down and overthink, which they tend to do on the road. Walter's tough belt was an outstanding move. We need these guys to walk onto the opponents floor with the home court attitude. "don't think about it.... attack!"

Noticed a couple of posts on the MVC board today giving the Aces their due. Winning cures a lot of ills.

This year UE is ninth (tied with UK) in home court advantage per Ken Pomeroy. Let’s #MoveTheCurtain to increase our home court advantage.

Saturday is Donnie Baseball Recognition Day at the Ford Center per the Aces Twitter. Mattingly was awarded an honorary doctorate of humane letters from UE last year.

If you missed this, like I did, here's the tape of the ceremony. Tom Kazee and one of his lackeys traveled to Miller Park in Milwaukee to bestow it before a baseball game.
