Latest bracketology on ESPN has #15 Drake playing #2 Wichita State in the first round. This would be a definite set up match up that I could see happening no matter who gets the auto bid in the MVC.

Drake wins today 81-65 over Evansville. Nick McGlynn with 23 points and 9 rebounds. CJ Rivers with a double- double. Five Drake players in double figures. Taylor had 28 points for Evansville, great shooter.

Great game by Drake. Always a hard place for the Aces to get a win at. All the travel problems didn't help.

WTF was up with Marty leaving his starters in after Drake emptied their bench in the last few minutes? Game really wasn't as close as the final score, but it sure allowed UE's star player to pad his stats in garbage time.

Marty never, ever takes the starters out when losing. And usually not when blowing out a SWAC team either.

Watching a couple DVRs...

Two Redbird possessions with 3:00 to go are befuddling. One was a Gassman TO for a slam dunk and the other a Gassman 3 with :20 on the shot clock. That late in the game, the ball needs to be in Y/F/E’s hands and Gassman should be clearing space for them. Good coaching by Hinson to force the ball elsewhere.

Salukis erase 14 point deficit with 7.5 left to win. Barry adjusted well.

Love ESPN replaying the Bryce/Ali shots and their Pickford rebounding special during Valpo/UNI.

So Jacobson sent a message and didn’t start Koch. And Koch posts 2/1 while freshman Phyfe posts 20/8. Wow!
