Chastain really flew high up in the air for that dunk. He was so high he probably had the best view on the court of the 2018 Final Four banner. I was jealous.

I think they're just coming back from break so not a shock that there were so few.

Also, Swella requested I post more. Be careful what you wish for

Avanti's is the worst restaurant I've ever eaten at.

It's the most beloved restaurant in Bloomington-Normal, and they will sell you a sandwich with iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise, bologna, slices of American cheese, and French' s mustard on bread that has less flavor than a bale of cotton.

They call it "The Gondola" like it's something more than a junior high school cafeteria sandwich. They do the same thing with their fraud basketball team.

TRASH.

We need to get busses of Loyola students down to NORMAL on Feb 2.

You can hit anyone with your car, and nothing happens.

Maybe a little nap will help, JCT. You'll wake up and realize we won the ball game and feel better.

Nice in-your-face for them to start Chastain (his first?) and set up a dunk for him on the opening play. Didn't work and he had a rough time out there for a while.

I seem to remember seeing the same thing in one of our games against them last year.

If anyone missed today’s game or would like to read a more in-depth recap than the AP wire, check out The Phoenix’s game story from Gentile —> https://bit.ly/2RtuwGl

Obviously a very good first half. We can play better overall, but in a strange way, it is nice to see us win a game like that one when we don't play our best.

Gritty gritty win. Townes was so tough; Lucas really brought the energy on defense.

My favorite play had to be with about a minute and a half left Uguak missed 2 freebies; rather than hang his head he ran back and forced a steal within 10 seconds. His defense has really impressed me.

By the way, you can tell the reffing was bad by the exchange between Porter and one of the refs. He had to be held back three times. He was almost T'd up before the last one.

Glad Yarbrough threw those two passes away at the end of the game. I wondered why he was trying to get rid of the ball, but then remembered some news stories that indicated he is bad at driving late.
