Now go get some rest and give Villanova all it can handle.

Just watched Northern Iowa beat NC State. Very impressed with them. Very smart team, very focused, and have the best coach in the Valley. Anyone who thinks they won't be right in the thick of the conference race, doesn't know how basketball should be played. If the Aces could finish a game like the Panthers did, they would be undefeated right now.

Very nice win for UNI! Very impressed they were able to come back from that 7 point deficit and get that win! Now go beat Villanova tomorrow!

A little late on my picks but here we go (11/24-11/26).

Villanova
Loyola
Valparaiso
Missouri State

Indiana State
Bradley
Loyola
Valparaiso
Murray State
Illinois State

Drake

Let me add this. If UNI somehow upsets Villanova tomorrow that would be about the best thing the conference could have asked for this season. It would be huge in showing that the Valley is more than just Wichita and Creighton.

All the pressure in the world tomorrow - lose to NCSU and you're quite likely facing Tennessee, and facing the prospect of missing out on the top 3 teams in the Atlantis field.

Position retracted. :D

Not enough depth to hang with Nova down the stretch.

Managed to outrebound Nova but 26% from deep, 14 turnovers and no free throw attempts make it hard to stay close.

Koch with a double double (10 and 12)
Pickford with 9 and 10

I thought UNI acquitied itself really well. Koch and Pickford had very good games, at least while I was watching. Pickford is really going to be something.

As you say, the lack of depth was a problem. The Panthers looked gassed at the end of the game. I only saw the second half, but McCloud was really trying to do too much. I am sure fatigue contributed to some of his mistakes.

Anyway, UNI is going to be pretty tough this year. Congrats on having such a strong tourney performance!

Good day for the MVC. Loyola and Valpo are both victorious in Savannah. Valpo defeated Kent State 77-67 and Loyola blows out UNC-Wilmington 102-78. The two teams now switch opponents and are back in action tomorrow. Go MVC!

Valley teams rock it on Black Friday with UNI showing some crazy fight against #5 Villanova, while both LUC and Valpo earn good Ws.

BIG day for the Valley tomorrow as the MVC teams keep playing at a high level helping to move the Valley up the conference ratings...love it! 8-)

KEEP IT ROCKIN' MVC!! :Cheers:

Bradley has finally turned the corner. This is a good Georgia Southern team who handled Missouri State and Wake Forest. They averaged 83 points coming into this game. Bradley held them to 57. These past few games have shown that they should compete for a spot in the top half of the conference.
