Donte should have taken the mid range jumper instead of driving :)
Like the one he took the possession before? 🤣
Exactly...he missed it but it was a good shot. He was open the second time but since he missed the first he drove and picked up the charge....take the open shot every time

Re: Illinois Basketball 2017-18

I'm surprised how bad defensively this Brad Underwood coached team is. Opposing teams have a very high fg% against the Illini. Opposing teams are shooting a ton of free throws against the Illini. Damonte plays 27 minutes and does not get 1 steal. That is unacceptable. Thank goodness the Big10 sched...

Re: Braves-Ramblers I

Loyola is not the place to try and get your road offense clicking. They give up 59 PPG in the league and force 14 turnovers a game. so they will force 14 and we will commit another 14 unforced..... Who in their right and realistic mind sees anything but a Loyola smackdown.... Nash Ramblers 79 BU ro...

Re: vs SIU

A "good" shot is a good shot regardless if it's 19 footer......certainly depends on the player. But if a guy is 3 point shooter and is defended as such it certainly helps if he has a mid range game. Faking a 3 and driving to pull up before the big man helps seems to be a good move to me. I like tha...

Re: MVC Scores

Look at the box scores of these games and the minutes played by their star players. Taylor went the full 40 minutes for Evansville, 3 players for Valpo played 34 and 35 minutes, Ind. St's two best players 34 minutes. We need our best 3 players to get those kind of minutes in order to give us the be...

Re: vs SIU

Also, teams have faked us out a bit on our scout in some of our blowout losses...scouting in general is a strength of our team...so it should be somewhat a positive that teams are adjusting to us for a change. And ultimately we have the personnel to respond to those changeups...and over the long ha...

Re: Bradley v UNI

It seemed like 50/50 calls went in favor of UNI.......it was good to see BU put on a show in the second half. Some nice movement with good passes got us some easy baskets too. Seems like a long time since we got that many easy ones in a game

Re: Green Bay Packers 2017

Geez. One more game left. I know the team was decimated by injuries last night but a couple of play calls going for it on 4th down were just really dumb calls. The Packers had their chances. Going for it on those 4th downs were the right decision. But honestly it didn’t matter because Brett Hundley...

Gutless call on the review. The play is either confirmed or reversed not stands as called. The video was clear. Call it.
I can’t believe they overturned the Carolina pass in the end zone for a TD Terrible call
