We need to get much more contribution from Thomas and Kinsby to win at Mo State. Both have been non factors in our last two wins.

It appears teams are getting the scouting report on Thomas and sagging off him now... at least SIU was...... he’s going to have to develop some kind of outside shot to take his game further... he IS only freshman so hopefully he can ....

Kingsby is still a mystery to me.... he’s good between the free throw lines..... he gets to the rack occasionally and plays good D......still not sure if he’s just trying to fit in.... not force things or if this is who he is..... said it before a lot of juco’s ( i know he’s not ) blossom year two.
So I was in the airport the other day and I saw AL B., PM me if you want more details.

I like Antonio Thomas but it’s four on five on the offensive end when he is out there.

Kingsby is not the player I thought he would be, terrible outside shot and just seems to just dribble the ball with little purpose on scoring. Coach Stowell would be pleading for him to drive the ball to the basket in order to draw fouls being he is an 80% free throw shooter.
Thomas should also do that as he is horrible from 3.

At least Thomas has looked to drive n score but now that teams are sagging it’s going to be tougher and tougher.... i think those few games he looked good he kinda snuck up on teams.....

Kingsby really doesn’t even look to score.....

Indiana State is currently burying Evansville further into the league basement.

Sycs lead 34-19 at the half.

There is a tweet out there that McCarthy will be reinstated tomorrow. Not yet confirmed.

You do realize its actually better for Bradley though if we could win tonight and again on Sat and go +2 in the loss column on those guys

Yes, yes I do, I just would love to see a matchup between 2 first place teams at Carver that I get to go to. I don’t think I’ve been to one of those in my lifetime.

Purely selfish hope for UNI to win, unselfishly I would love a UNI loss and a BU win tonight. 😁

UNI wins 88-78 setting up the battle for 1st place on Saturday.

I know.....Loyola is very much in the mix with games against SIU and ISUr.

Loyola does have a pretty easy stretch til the 26th where they go to Cedar Falls.

Winning at Redbird may not be easy though.

Every win right now for Bradley is awesome. Have you guys looked at our schedule down the stretch? The only game in our last 7 that we might not be a favorite in is @valpo. We end the year like this:
Vs Evansville
Vs ISUb
@SIU
Vs MIssouri State
@Valpo
@ISUr
Vs Loyola

We win a few more games without Eli and we will have a shot at being Valley champs.

Am I the only one who thinks everyone should stop and take a second to relax on the high expectations???? I want to see success too....but I'm certainly not expecting contention for a regular season title this year.

Go away Debbie. Let some of us ride this until the final buzzer sounds Saturday.

Why not? We were preseason number 2 and we are tied for first at 4-1. If we aren’t playing a Thursday night team on Friday I will be disappointed

I was not expecting to contend for the regular season title this year either. I also did not expect to be 4-1 without Childs at this point. Time to raise expectations
