Just asking...how much of that team is still wearing the WIU colors?
Only 2 of their starters last night were on the team last year. I was just surprised that they started 10-2 with a fairly competitive non-conference schedule last year.

The BRMM had Handcock Stadium (according to Marquee) rockimg. Bring them back

We brought back fist bumping the refs during starting lineup

Blew an opportunity for the first successful inbound play in a decade in the first half. Lewis was wide open at the rim

Did Knight study under Ggggreg? He's got that head snap whenever there's any contact in his blood.

I like the new PA guy, but the sound guy needs to work on directing his call to the upper bowl. Sat in the lower for the exhibition game and could hear him just fine, but in the upper bowl its just muddy. Could understand about a third of what he said. Might be due to his baritone voice.

Lots to work on. Western set the tone physically for most of the game. When we did, we ran up the score, but for the most part we were outworked. We do a good job screening in the paint to open lanes. As Cpacmel said, how do you leave a guy with 22 wide open from 3 late?
Please… if anyone from ISU Athletic Administration reads this board, please fix the sound for games. Everything is muffled and it is very hard to understand what is being said… even in the lower bowl. If I was a business and was paying for my advertising, I would not be happy. Very little of what the PA guy says can be understood. It’s not good

Yes. When Redbird 222 was in the bathroom servicing Hulka's stall, they caught Quinn on fire and it took 2 fire extinguishers, a Bud Light, and a stop-drop'n'roll from a cheerleader to put him out.
Just be glad it wasn't Taco Tuesday

FWIW, Reeves led Ky in scoring tonite with 22 points on 6-12 3-point shooting. DJ Horne had 8 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists. That should be ISU’s starting backcourt.
So many hating on Reeves and saying he was gonna be a bust at UK.
As a Redbird fan, it’s so easy to be jealous.

For the love of God, I’m praying this team doesn’t desecrate the holy ground known as Horton. Can we reschedule that game for next season?

When do we think Offutt will rejoin our team? I know he and his wife recently had a kid

Maybe we lost our mop sponsor (it used to be Avanti’s, right?) or ran out of celebrity ball kids to operate them.
Don't know what happened with the mops but did find it interesting that it seems to be team managers tasked with wiping up the floor with towels when someone falls as opposed to an event staff with a mop.

Kendall slipping those couple times reminded me of a few years ago- ISU was down at home, similar time in the game, maybe against UNC-G or something? Copeland cut under the basket for a wide open lay up and fell (got called for a travel), Birds lost that one too. It was under the same hoop.

I remember that game .... Central Florida. I think we were 2-0 trying to go to 3-0. We had beaten Belmont and Arkansas Little Rock

A more important question. Are we going to get any food vendors back? I could be wrong, but I think our only choices for this game were the ISU concession stands or Dippin Dots.
