While we're playing in Muncie, there are six other games in the MVC tonight.

Indiana State has already beat North Dakota State. Valpo losing by 10 at halftime at Eastern Michigan... tough game.

Milwaukee at Drake, Murray State at Missouri State, Bradley at Memphis, and ISUr at TCU is about to begin.

Flipping between the Bradley and ISU games. My biggest takeaway thus far is that TCU and Memphis have two of the ugliest courts in college basketball.

Drake holds off Milwaukee by 3. I watched the end of the Murray State and Missouri State game, and it was a super-close 71-69 win for Missouri State, mostly thanks to a DaSilva rebound of a missed 2nd free throw.

That was a great game. Wish Murray was in the MVC.

Dana Ford in the postgame interview:
“I have no idea why Murray State isn’t in the MVC.”

Neither do we. :lol:

It really is ridiculous that Murray State isn't in our conference. I'm still trying to figure out how they didn’t get in over Valpo.

UNI goes to Boulder and pulls the upset over Colorado. Great win for them, and they're looking like the team to beat heading into the new year.

This was the game I thought would give us a better idea of how good Northern Iowa is. Up until this game, I respected their record, but couldn't tell how good they were by who they beat.

They are apparently legit. They should be the ones with the target on their backs when we start conference play.

According to KenPom.com, Colorado has the biggest home court advantage in Division I men's college basketball. Illinois State leads the MVC and ranks 4th nationally.

Evansville got smacked by 26 points to Jacksonville State.

Jacksonville state has a 28 point loss to VCU, a 32 point loss to Purdue, and losses to SMU, Chattanooga, George Mason, Alabama A&M, and Troy.

It’s going to be a really interesting conference race
