SIU throttles NC A&T 102-64. Six in double figures. Let's see how they transition into Friday's game at Nevada...

Bradley takes care of SEMO 75-67 on the road. That's the second time this year Bradley has beaten a team who previously beat an MVC school ranked higher in the preseason poll (Georgia Southern beat Missouri State and SEMO beat SIU).

Bradley got down early but stormed back to take a 12 point half time lead. SE MO st made a couple run a in the 2nd half but never got closer than 3 points and Bradley was then able to push the lead back up to 13 after that.

Another road win for Bradley against a team that beat SIU in Carbondale. Bradley will get another good road test at Ole Miss on Saturday. I don't think there is any way this Bradley team is playing on Thursday again.

Bradley plays really good defense and shoots the three really well. The Braves won't be playing on Thursday.

Great showing by Evansville on ESPN2. Down 74-21 (or 53 points) at Duke with 16 minutes to go in the 2nd half. :Bam:

Bad timing for them. Evansville has what their top 3 or 4 guys injured? :?

I really feel for the Aces. I don't think any team in the Valley could hang with Duke, even at full strength. Obviously, injuries have really hurt Evansville.

I know the Aces are hurt but what an embarrassing night. Currently down 69 with 2 minutes left.

That's all folks. Long plane ride back to Indiana. Duke wins 104-40. 64 point loss. At least they scored 40?......

3 best guards, had 8 guys available tonight. It would have been ugly regardless but that certainly didn't help matters. Of those 8, you had a 5th year senior, JC senior, redshirt freshman, and 5 guys new to the program this year. The opinion from the preseason polls and here is that Evansville wouldn't be that good so losing at a Final Four caliber team, granted by 60+ is a bit much, shouldn't be a huge surprise.

Duke also played really well, the resistance factor (or lack of) had a lot to do with that. The key now is not to lose to Duke again on Saturday. Make Illinois State beat them. Duke is one big L, regroup and come home, hopefully get Boo back and Taylor is getting closer to his returning window as well. He was out of his boot, non-contact drills at practice late last week. Glad he didn't play/risk anything tonight.

Playing against that type of size, skill is a wake up call and we struggled tonight, no doubt.

Evansville shouldn't hang their heads. This kind of disaster happens every so often. Actually not a bad RPI night for the MVC with UE playing Duke and BU winning AT SEMO. We're a one-bid NCAA league this year, but most of our teams will still be playing after Arch Madness. Still important to get some more OOC W's and build for the next couple years.
