Re: MBB: Birds Picked 2nd in Preseason Poll

The players who play most like a TEAM will win the league. Loyola wears that crown right now. They turn it over least. Shoot it best. And play best team defense. Until that changes they will be top dog.

Re: Hoopfest 2018

Why are people comparing abdou to David? Aside from their last names do they have anything in common? I was expecting abdou to be a 3 or stretch 4 coming in with handles, perimeter shot, dynamic offensive capability. David is a 5.

I would think people would be comparing abdou to Tinsley or Milik.

Re: College Sports Madness Top 144

Have to win 2 out of 3 against San Diego St, BYU and Central Florida. Go 1-2 or 0-3 in those games and we will need to win Valley Tournament.

Re: 2019 - Marquise Kennedy, 6-1, PG, Chicago Brother Rice

My opinion is that Marquise Kennedy had no interest in coming to Illinois State after DJ Horne committed. Had nothing to do with whether or not Dan backed off. Can’t remember the last time Illinois State signed to good freshman point guards the same season. We will never know, but if I were betting...

Re: 2019 - Marquise Kennedy, 6-1, PG, Chicago Brother Rice

Dan knew that MK was going to be a tough get to begin with - I think Frasor and Kennedy told Dan hey you're not in Final 3 and then Dan turned up the volume on Horne - who I think is a great get too. Kid wants to go to a basketball school only and be close to home - his family can get to games quic...

Not a huge surprise. Catholic School kid and Moser and Brian Mullins are leveraging Final Four as we would expect them to. Would have loved to see him in a Redbird uni. Loyola is setting itself up to dominate the Valley for a while. Then we'll be talking about Loyola to the Big East and then we'll g...

Well that is the type of story I would tell. Questions- 1. Why did other sport athletes get ahold of someone who got ahold of Milik? Maybe some high school connection? 2. Do visiting athletes stay at Marriott? Thought they normally stayed on campus with current athletes. 3. Why after all of his dri...

Re: Committed: DJ Horne

From YouTube videos some of which look a bit dated, looks like average quickness, slow release and set shot, potentially above average ball handling, did not see a left hand, above ave size for Valley PG.

In coaches we trust. Hope he turns out to be a good one.

Re: Conference Schedule

Kind of a rough early schedule. @Valpo and @Loyola first 4 games. Although those teams are not going to look better than some of the teams we see in non-con, which should help.

That last game @SIU could be big for winning league and hopefully finishing strong for at-large.

One game at a time....

Re: College Sports Madness Top 144

If ISU goes 11-2 in non-conf I will be quite pleasantly shocked. Not out of the question, but just about everything would have to go right, including the following: -No one gets hurt -No one is ineligible -Someone emerges to play point guard who isn't Keyshawn or Malik -Someone can block out Tacko F...

Re: College Sports Madness Top 144

have to win the micro valley coop to make the dance.... I think 28-6 makes it if no bad losses (11-2 and 15-3 + 2-1). 29-5 for sure. I think 11-2 non conference is doable and 15-3 in conference is doable. 28-6 to is very realistic. With no bad losses that's an at large bid with their schedule this ...

So Drake has gotten a top 20 kid and a top 10 kid in Illinois in the past week? That’s pretty good for Drake.

Were we not trying to get these kids to ISU (serious question)?
