Re: Bradley vs UIC

I agree dogs. He's definitely a very athletic player which bodes well. Even if he never becomes a great offensive player he can certainly be taught to use that athleticism as a great defender and rebounder. I have no problem with coach getting him minutes prior to Valley play. Once the season begins...

Re: Bradley vs UIC

Henry is an aggressive player. There are a lot of games that are grinds. When it’s a grind, you want a DLO/Henry type player or 2 on your side. Could not agree more. I believe Gabriel has the raw potential to be that type of player as well and can contribute now. I consider Gabriel to be the weak l...

I get that that's good compared to where we've been, but I really don't think we should be bragging about 5400 attendance numbers when that is half of what we're used to.
I totally agree squirrel. The new normal goal to strive for needs to be 7,500+ for every conference home game.

I’ll take this WAY over losing by 16 to San Francisco. At home.
In all fairness San Fran is a once proud program on the upswing. I would not have expected Southern to beat them, even at home.

Re: Opponents thread

Norfolk will be a good barometer for the Braves to see where we're at. If we think we deserve to make the NCAA Tournament then we need to beat the good low D1 teams like this. I'd hope for a 10-15 point win at home.

Re: The Valley

Should have been no call. Good referees generally know to let the players decide the outcome at the end of games. But the ref was whistle happy and, unfortunately, replay could not overturn.

Mo State spotted Xavier a 10 point start, but closed it to 2 at half, 32-30 in Cinci. That included a technical called against the Bears.
Bears take it to the wire, but Xavier hangs on 59-56.
Interesting that DaSilva only took 4 shots in 30 minutes with a stat line of 4 points & 4 rebounds

Re: Welcome Darius Hannah and Connor Linke to Bradley

I love that they are both 6'9. It's hard to get bodies that big in our league as we usually are getting 6'6 or 6'7 guys. Yes, if one of the two develops into an impactful starter then it's the start to a good recruiting class. I think one has star potential (and also probably flop potential) while ...

Re: Opponents thread

Bradley's non-conference schedule isn't all that strong so I hope to see at minimum a 10-3 team heading into conference play. There's really no reason not to expect something close to this with the core group that we have. At a minimum? :lol: Things would have to go perfect to come out at 10-3. I'd...

Bradley's biggest problem is they have great ideas on where they need to go, but don't invest in them on the resource side for them to be successful...they can spend money in smart ways where they can grow enrollment. . .but they like to do things for the sake of doing them; not for the sake of the...

UIC is 1-1. They beat Olivet Nazarene and got blasted 92-46 by Memphis.
UIC had a lot of players out due to injury or suspension against Memphis. If we play the same depleted UIC team we need to win by 20+
