The birds did a great job getting inside this game from the start. Something that has been missing. Good thing too because they didn't hit a 3 in the second half. Fayne who is about a 50% free throw shoot was 7-8 from the line. ISU kept Alize Johnson in check after about the first 5 minutes of game. ISU was about 90% from the free throw line which probably won the game because MSU had a lot of fouls. The turnover and steal margin was huge in favor of ISU. MSU did a nice job putting back missed shots for baskets. They stopped hitting 3's in the second half too, though. I haven't checked the rebounding numbers but it seemed to be in favor of MSU. MSU had a huge margin in favor of them for blocks. The total percentage between the two teams from three was 31/32%. Brutal.

The steals and forced turnovers definitely helped keep you guys in the lead. Every time MSU looked to go on a run ISU took the ball and got a shot in the post. I would look for MSU to clean up their offensive possessions soon.

Rebounds were the turning point for MSU. At the half ISU was +1 on the boards. By the end of the game MSU was +13.

UNI is the only team with 0 wins and are only up by 3 at the half. I really thought this was the game they were going to show up and take a strong win at home.

To ISUR fans.....when was the last time Phil Fane missed only one free throw when taking more than 2? What was he today? 8 of 9 or 9 of 10?

Probably never lol he would up his scoring average by 4 points or so if he could become a 70% free throw shooter. I doubt he will ever be consistent at the line, im not a fan of his shooting mechanics, his shot has no arc on it usually which makes it tough on him

There is nothing entertaining about watching UNI play basketball.

The treatment Bennett Koch receives from the refs is unreal. Breathing in his general direction is a foul.

And UNI goes to 0-4 and has lost 6 straight to go to 8-8 after starting 8-2. Complete collapse by this team.

I still think they finish top 4 in the MVC. I don't know why, but they always start slow in conference, and they always finish strong.

And Drake always seems to end up playing on Thursday. Same thought process for that?

For me the UNI game was so slow it was hard to watch. It seemed at the end Loyola pushed the tempo and went up 5. I don't buy UNI has a functionality that loses games then becomes good later. Things change year in year out with all teams.

The Ill State-Mo State game was fun to watch. Looked like ILSU was better at getting to the hoop at the end. It's going to be an interesting year.
