Re: Braves-Ramblers I

You know, whether BU gets beat by 1 or 41, it counts as 1 loss.

Moving right along to Wednesday at ISU.

I prefer the half court heave but that’s for another discussion..... :jokerc
When they make half court the 4 point line, there is probably an argument that a 4 pointer makes more sense than an 18 foot shot too.

Re: vs SIU

Here is a quick back of the digital napkin run down... Nate is shooting 37.5% from 3. Nate is shooting 40.6% on all 2 point jump shots. Obviously I don't have the data of how many of those 2's were an 18-20 foot variety, but for fun lets say he's shot every 2 point jumper from between 18 and the 3 p...

Re: vs SIU

if shots aren't falling, what else is there to change up on the fly. The only way to score is to shoot. That reasoning makes no sense. This teams Achilles heel is turnovers and poor f/t shooting by certain players. I do not know what percentage of possessions result in points for this team, but I w...

I thought we played pretty poorly. Bar was awful again. But we won.....so take it and move on. He played 13 minutes... They shot really well from the free throw line. Donte had another great game. The 2nd half defense *** but first half was great. I thought Darrell and Jayden had nice games as well...

Re: Welcome Luqman Lundy!

The recruiting since Wardle took over has been better than I could have expected. To get as much as BU has from that huge first year class is amazing. The next class are starting as sophomores on a pretty solid team. Childs looks like the best recruit so far and Stipanovich looks like he could devel...

Just don't play Thursday. If we're being honest with ourselves, that's really the only step forward we need to make to have this season be considered a success. I agree. This is our "not bad" year. Anything above that would be a plus imo. I mean let's tell the truth here - we make the 3-6 game as t...

Re: Evansville

I wish I had the Evansville stat keepers when I played. I would easily have my HS record for assists. 14 assists on 14 made shots? On one play Smith took the inbounds pass and drove all the way down the court for a layup. That’s not an assist for anyone. Those stat keepers are just so used to that ...

Re: Braves v Valpo

Great start. Brutal to watch. Fouls on both sides that were ridiculous. There was a sequence in the 2nd half where Darrell was called for a foul on Smits on a loose ball. Darrell didn’t make contact with Smits. Next trip down Koch jumps into a guy for an obvious foul and isn’t called. All night long...

Re: Bradley v UNI

I think it has two components...you have marketing teams trying to maximize the in-game revenue, and you have pressure from the team who want the maximum amped up environment and music they like. That's one reason why I actually can live with the classic rock approach Bradley has taken this year......

Although the Swing March is unique and really almost on par with Charge On, Bradley! in terms of significance for the GDE. A part of me died when they scrapped Swing Match before the tip-off.

I find it hard to believe any team with tournament aspirations as Valpo did would come to Carver to play us. We were an SOS killer. So I don’t buy it that Bradley ducked them. Don’t know about ISU.
I was going to post a similar thought. Would have been a great game for ISU-Valpo both ways.
