I have such little confidence when Key shoots anymore.

What the hell is Bob Morris talking about. Saying it isn't a shot just because it was a desperation shot?

We won on Saturday. We won again tonight. Win the next one and that's called a winning streak.

If you ever needed an example that MY and PF are the two best players on the team just rewatch tonight’s game. Chastain is turning in to a nice player really like what he’s been doing.

Put those three out there with Copeland to dribble the ball up for the most possible minutes a game.

I would like to see Ike get some of Keyshawn’s minutes next game just to see if there is any spark there bc Evans looks slow on defense and is a liability on offense.

Muller......there are no words. Terrible job of in game coaching.

This team and program make about as much sense to me as astrophysics anymore. Just win some games. I’m tired.

Key almost cost us the game obviously. He missed THREE wide open shots in the last three minutes. In the past he would have made two of them. Plus Jefferson cannot hit either. Two guys you expected to be real threats. But shooters have to keep shooting. Another thing Zach took a couple of shots in the last two minutes that were Ill advised. Unless it’s a layup on Fayne or Milik should be shooting in that situation. Plus that freshman guard used and abused key down the stretch.

Or maybe the perfect time, when they have no confidence.

Actually down the last three minutes only one bad shot even after we slowed it down. Copeland’s forced jumper. You really can’t complain about Key’s three shots. He was squared up and wide wide wide open. The only real fault otherwise was that Fayne or Milik didn’t take those shots. If we are gonna be good Key has to find his stroke.

You like that inbound play where they all ran receiver routes and Hein (the last guy on the floor you want to) caught the ball and had to take the FT’s? Or the constant icing of his own FT shooters at the end of games? Or having Idowu be the inbound guy and almost turn it over? Or having Keyshawn he the guy that is set up for shots when he has clearly been terrible all game?

My first thought is how sad it has to be to be a UNI fan. That team is a shell of their former teams. Granted as bad as the MVC has become they still can compete.

For 6 and a half years I am puzzled by Dan Muller offense. Throw it to Fayne and Yarbourgh on the block every time. Fayne was running around the perimeter for half the game. Dan said after the game he knew they would double team Fayne (that is how we got the lob to start). Every time he touched the ball it was an easy score, good shot, or kick out. There are only about 2 other decent post players in the entire league.

I'll leave it to others to talk about the compete disaster down the stretch again. Dan claims we worked on fouling up 3 more than any other team in the country and fouled where we wanted (instead of in the back court where he couldn't shoot it).

We aren't good, but after tonight I'm not sure it really matters since apparently everyone in the league is bad.

I always hate having to play a good team who is coming off a loss.

Muller talked about both post game. On the inbound play he checked with officials a couple of weeks ago prior to Valpo to make sure it was legal. As long as it's off a basket where you can run the end line there is no player limit

On Rey inbounding that was not by choice. In all games and practices he's never once inbounded. I think it was just heat of the moment freshman mistake. Luckily didn't cost us

I have to disagree Rico. We didn’t “set up” Key for those shots. Wasn’t a called play. It just worked out that we moved the ball around and Key was the open man. Hein for all his faults which are many....not my favorite player by a long shot...has been at the FT line before in that situation and made his FTs. Our first option on that OB play was Milik curling back to the inbounds but we didn’t get it to him. I do agree that having Idowu inbound the ball there was strange. IF we had a time-out left I would have had Chastain inbound the ball the last time. I don’t know if we had a time-out left or not.
