Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

What are the chances this suspended group comes back? There are a lot of stories floating around that it’s possible. I haven't heard that story from anyone. Unless these players were set up and are 100% innocent I don't think anyone should want them back. They let their teammates, coaches, fans, fr...

Re: MVC Tourney

If nothing else, D'Avanzo in this game has proven that if you were a good D2 player, you could also be useful at this level provided its the right fit.

And 4 minutes in, this one is already over.


Amazing the difference several hours and the opposition actually playing defense makes.

Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

Yeah...I like East overall...and I think adding 10-15 pounds of muscle would help him immensely on the defensive end...yes, there would need to be technique improvements and just an overall increase in desire on his part to become a better defender for the extra strength to really matter...but the ...

Re: Rienk Mast - in League Play

Mast - Last 5 games 17.8 pts, 7.6 reb Mast has been one of our best freshman of the past 15 years. We've only had a handful who've shown his potential freshman year -- Warren, Maniscalco, Cunningham, DLO and Brown. I'm excited to see what he can do over the next few years if we can surround him wit...

Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

Would I be OK with having all 3 back? Sure. BUT that would also be with the caveat that almost ALL other spots are greatly improved and those 3 have sizable jumps in production next year --- which is a whole lot to think about and many variables to cover. To be fair, I don't think Brian gets enough...

Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

East looked much more enthusiastic and engaged the final few games of the season. He's still young, and if he's willing to put in the time and effort to learn good defense I think he can still be a useful player for Bradley. I agree with this. He had very poor play overall for a few weeks at the st...

Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

Seems pretty logical, although I'm not sure how one could assume guys like Kent and Linke are slam dunks to return. I would assume that it means that Brian told Eminian "these are the guys I want back". Sure, but my point was, that doesn't necessarily mean the feeling is mutual. Freshmen ...

Re: Braves v Salukis Round 3 in STL

To put Eli in context, Mast finished just 93 points shy of Eli on 19 fewer minutes-and he had just 6 points over the first 3 games, and 7 games with 4 or fewer points, including 3 games where he didn't score a single point. Look at it this way --- Reink took a lot less shots earlier on as well and ...

Re: PJS: We’re reloading article

Found this quote interesting considering part of the problem was lack of recruiting awareness and in understanding we just don't have a man to man defense team. We just couldn't get going. Guarding the dribble and playing one-on-one on the perimeter was a weakness all during the conference season. W...

Couldn't let Bradley rampage to a third consecutive MVCt in a season where Rich Herrin passed away. Hope everyone has stayed relatively safe and healthy.

Can't say I've ever been as OK for a season to be over as this one.


The coaching staff has a lot of work to do.

Just wonder how much time they will be given and whether they even can fix this.

Re: Braves v Salukis Round 3 in STL

At least we should show some resemblance of what playing defense is, whether young or not. But we have a bad gameplan from the staff, guys who don't recognize screens and switches, don't understand backcuts, and don't move their feet. And it's not just one guy either. Its most of them, but its pret...
