I would like to make a revision for Sunday based on Fayne's injury and still no Evans...

Last night was Elijah Clarance's coming out party for Illinois State. After missing the first few months of preseason and regular season, his comfort level is really growing. SIU could not keep him in front last night and he finished with 15 points, 4 assists and one monster dunk.

How many points does a 'monster dunk' count as?

If only I could tell you. I don't have a megaphone and my voice cant shout from the current 2 seed (ISUr wins tiebreaker by 18 RPI slots) all the way down to the current 9th seed. :Violin:

That was the weirdest game I had seen in some time.

I know you are being sarcastic, but 2 points + the value of pumping up the crowd and giving them momentum (at the time), so more than 2 points in intrinsic value.

I was just ribbing you guys.

Plus, I don't have time today for the analytics debate about how momentum isn't a real thing...

Good win for the Birds. Last 3 weeks should be interesting. From my perspective, first and tenth are settled but there's going to be a whole lot of movement in the middle.

Tinsley and Bruninga looked sharp too. Big win for ISUr with Evans out, Fayne off, Yarbrough setting a Guinness world record for turnovers, and the Hein handicap. CBT won it for the Redbirds.

Yeah....I changed my pick last night to Crusaders on Sunday over my Redbirds (or should I say deadbirds?)...see above.

We will see how the ISUr role players who came up big last night do on the road vs Valpo. If they play with the confidence they did last night with similar results, the future is very bright for the Birds
