SMU lost 79-73 to Lipscomb. Mustangs 2-2 with the wins against NW State and Western Carolina, and the losses to Southern Miss and Lipscomb.
This is a game Bradley needs to win.

Re: Attendance

For 60 years fans attended Bradley games because it was a cultural phenomenon in Peoria. Not just entertaining but like a family gathering with all your old friends as well. The fans were treated both on the court & off as if they were the key part of the entire experience. It was part of the Peori...

Re: BU-UIC roll Call

UIC is a good offensive team that plays fast and came in tonight averaging 83 ppg. They are also a god awful defensive team who gives up 80 points the minute they fall out of bed in the morning. They came in tonight giving up 89 points a game. You can't go on the road against a team like that and sc...

Re: BU-UIC roll Call

Contrary to the narrative, offense travels a lot better than defense. Gotta be able to score to win on the road. It’s one thing Jim Les teams did some. You don’t get the same calls on the road and can’t play as physical. Yeah, 40 was a lot but UIC scores a lot. You can’t have Nate and Luuk go 0-5 fr...

Re: BU verse JSU

I have no problem with Childs/coaches trying to develop a little outside game for him. I understand what they are trying to accomplish from it. Aside from a few of the 3s that he has taken, they've been in the flow of the offense and not forced. I don't think he needs to just post up. He has a very...

Last night was a REALLY bad night for Mike McCarthy. I never thought the Packers would get rid of him but if they miss the playoffs this season I don't see him back next season.

Not to make it too macro, but feels like we are talking about something that is a huge cultural shift here.

I can got to ESPN+ on any given night and see all kinds of live sporting events, including tons of men’s D1 basketball. It’s amazing. It is amazing.

Re: BU verse JSU

Good win for the Braves. Another solid defensive effort. Won the battle of the boards. Controlled the entire game really. The rotation is all but set until Boya gets fully healthy. Nothing wrong with that. This team will struggle to score at times that's for sure. Very happy for Koch Bar. Great game...

Re: BU verse JSU

Egolf floated out there as an underclassman too. Of course, it was probably the extra time recuperating from injuries that helped him develop into a weapon as a stretch post. I get why it would be great to have it. Driving lanes would open too. Nobody is going to respect it right now, though. Same ...

There was a good reason for his transfer and he will be fine. He will get his LOI signed today and will be here next summer. He scored 21 pts with his new team in his first game!
For the record. My issue/concern isn’t so much him not showing up....but staying for an extended period of time

Re: Braves only Valley winner Saturday

I agree to an extent but to me, top end talent is what wins. One or two first team all-league type guys. Game changers. I'm not sure that guy is on the Bradley roster this season. I know there is a finite improvement that can take place here, but Wardle has overhauled the roster and program to impr...

Re: Braves only Valley winner Saturday

Many of us said this and saw this after last season, and while it's VERY early, there should be 4-5 teams thinking they have a legitimate chance to win this thing. I hate to beat the dead horse, but seeing this last spring and seeing it now, I wish we'd have recruited last spring with a little more...

Re: Ongoing opponents thread

To me this is the way to go for many mid majors. I think the UIC game is a really good one for Bradley. Of course SLU can't play every team in the MVC. Bradley-DePaul makes WAYYY too much sense. I'm sure the issue is on DePaul's end. Same with Bradley-Butler. Or Marquette. But Marquette is one of t...
