Finals are starting up, so most teams are taking breathers the next couple weeks. That's why it's a softer part of our schedule, too.
I am just happy we are playing...not who I would like to be playing, but its better than the usual layoff where we come back completely flat.

Re: The Valley

Some really bad league games this weekend. Including 5 games against .500 or worse lower competition, 1 team playing a 0-7 team, and then add another past those 5 playing a D2 team. Only Indiana State and Valpo play tough opponents all weekend. (Wright St, CMU) Thankfully next week UNI goes to Color...

Re: Game Introduction

I am really trying to stay away from the RC talk that seems to frequent these parts several times each season (thanks Geno) The reason again for me its just not feasible is they could have had some foresight (but didnt) --- what else is new, and they could have had a 2nd level ring of seats. What th...

Re: N.C. A & T

You always do a great job trying to convince people the opponent is good 😀. You would be a good coach. The first step toward losing is to not take your opponent seriously. ;) With our O we can't take anyone light. All it takes is for just one player on their side to get really hot and make a bunch ...

Re: N.C. A & T

Not exactly an exciting opponent , 1pm. Saturday means the place will be quiet and no more then 4800 fans. I hope to be wrong, next game another boring opponent. No wonder attendance is never good during the non con. schedule, well at least we get Toledo and Georgia Southern at the end before conf....

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

We’ve got 5 non-con games left, and I expect us to go 5-0. Get some young guys some meaningful run in the next couple of games against NC A&T and Maryville, and then crank it up for conference prep against Georgia Southern, Toledo, and Miami. 10-3 non-con and coming our healthy I think we’d all tak...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

Brown will play better once Valley play begins and he plays against competition that's not so long and athletic as he's been seeing lately. I wouldn't be surprised to see him put up similar Valley numbers to last year This feels a lot like how Kennell struggled so badly shooting the ball the first ...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

And since you guys were asking, Darrell is 11 of 49 from 2 for the season for an ice cold 22%. He also dropped to 73% from the line, which is also way too low for a guy that is basically looking for contact and bail out fouls when he hangs himself halfway into the lane. I'm not trying to "bury" Darr...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

That said, he has a long history of being around a 40% shooter at 3, and I am going to trust that’s his true level there vs what we are getting now. With the misses tonight (all 8 of them) he's down to 31% After all, we only had 3 guys raise their percentages, Boya and Thomas from 2 and Kingsby fro...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

He could have at least passed the ball to some of his teammates toward the end instead of just chucking up bad shots ,when he penetrated inside the lane we had several players open outside. I am already down to feeling comfortable with only 4 players putting it on the floor and driving it to the ba...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

Stinks for Darrell. No one tries to miss shots. He is now at 26.6% for the season. Maybe there is just some overvaluing of his shooting abilities. Who knows, but we either need him to greatly correct it or get others more shots, preferably ones that can go through the hoop. No doubt. He has to be u...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

One thing about all 3 of our losses. . .they are all to teams that are full of lengthy guys that are good at interrupting stuff. We're not going to see that from too many of our remaining opponents. I wouldn’t call the St Joes and NW rosters full of lengthy guys. K State and Memphis yes. Yeah, poor...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

I knew we'd be outgunned but man who would have thought we'd have missed so many 3s. We will not have another night like that this year. On the good side as bad as our O was we had a chance. The D will always keep us in every game. To say “we had a chance” is a pretty big stretch. We had a chance t...

We won’t see a better team until maybe our 1st round game in the NCAA’s. Let’s close out the non-con 5-0 and go win a championship.
I happen to think UNI is pretty good. Maybe not as deep as Memphis, but those games in January with them will be battles.

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

Good games by Childs & Kingsby. The junior class showed up. Agree...Boya was OK and Ville and Antonio did some good things too. Other than that, not much good to say. Brown, Kennell, Bar, and Gabriel were complete no shows. Gabriel I could try to excuse, but its been the same tape thus far....made ...

Darrell just did not come with the right mindset to play tonight.... Bad all around. He probably just put too much pressure on himself. Coming home to play in front of your friends, family, Godfather and legend. He really wanted to impress. I feel bad for him, but he'll rebound I'm sure Again, hasn...

Childs showed up. Defense showed up. Just couldn’t hit any 3’s (1-20) or might’ve had one tonight.
1 for 17 from your Guards will do that to you.

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

And this might sound petty, but 55 on Memphis is trash, and they keep talking about him like he's supposed to be somebody good. Really? I mean he does have 5 blocks and 11 rebounds... You know, the effort and results we were expecting from Bar and Boya (granted I feel like this is Boya's best effort)

With as mediocre as Memphis has played, Bradley will have blown a golden opportunity to steal a big time win.
As Canadian treasure Shania Twain would say, they haven't impressed me much.
