Have you seen Luke Litwiller?!?! MAN....kid can play, no doubt about it. Dirty Dan will have the boys ready. He knew this was coming, and that's why he went to an 8-man rotation, wanted to have the boys ready for this trip. After the game, ISU fans will be saying Fayne Who? and Luke and the Gas man will household names.

Tue-
Panthers > UE....UNI has enough in the tank at home, but the Aces really come at the Panthers

Wed-
Bulldogs > ISU....Drake keeps pace, while the Sycamores may be fading a bit
Ramblers > VU...LUC gets this one, but I think the Crusaders give Loyola all they can handle
Braves > ISU...BU takes one over their arch rival (albeit a much depleted Redbird squad)
Salukis > MSU...could be the game of the week as Barry goes for the sweep over Lusk & Co.

Sat-
Salukis > ISU...SIU stays within striking distance of the top, and the Sycamores continue to slide
Redbirds > UNI...tough call on this one, but tipping it to the home team...still a toss-up

Sun-
Bears > DU....MSU is playing better and this is a must-win at home, but the Bulldogs just might bite 'em
Aces > LUC...Evansville has played above expectations, so think this one will be extremely competitive

Got called out by a couple posters last round, but I was darn close on my Trees > LUC upset pick. Also, I'm sorry, but Bradley is indeed terrible on the road....not a knock (just calling it by their roadie record).

Anyhow, these final two weeks could be a pretty intense bloodbath in the MVC as all the teams will be kicking their play up a couple notches as they gear toward Arch Madness....LOVE IT!! 8-)

Looking forward to catching all the action across the entire Valley.....KEEP IT ROCKIN' MVC :Cheers:


You left off the Bradley @Valpo game on Saturday. But reading your comments about Bradley's road woes I think I know who you will be picking!

4 Evansville starters had 2 points or less. Ryan Taylor had 26. Did they set quadruple screens all night?

UNI didn't have a field goal for the final 10 minutes and still won with just 47 points.

That second half was brutal to watch.
