As I said- it's early and some guys are still injured...
plus the level of competition each has faced is different....

For example - Bradley's & ISU's games have all been quite competitive - and no garbage time, while Evansville & Valpo's strength of schedule is very soft so far...

..and UNI's last 3 games were huge blowout, stat-padding wins against extremely low level opponents (Alcorn State, D-III Wartburg, Chicago State) which players logged 30+ minutes even tho they were up 30-40 points over hapless opponents who were playing their scrubs. The Chicago State box score is weird - with Chicago State playing only 2 players more than 20 minutes because they were behind by 40 - while UNI's starters were on the floor 30+ minutes. If Bradley had 3 or 4 of those games, then I suspect Childs would be averaging 20/15 and Stipo might be at 20 ppg

and none of Loyola's 4 opponents had beaten a single DI opponent thru Sunday - except Samford had eked out a win over winless Alabama A&M
SIU's gonna get their wake-up call tonight after two reasonably close calls over weak opponents
