Since the "revision" of our lineup, Bradley has gone 5-2
but more importantly, over that span we are now averaging ...
74 points per game, AND we are shooting better - 175-371 (47.2%) FG shooting and 57-129 (44.2%) 3-pt shooting & fewer turnovers

Clearly we are a better team

Heading to Evansville for the game tomorrow, any other Braves fans making the trip? Or if you've made the trip in the past is there anything I need to see or more importantly eat?

I've been there many times. There used to some old family-run restaurants near the Roberts Arena on the east side of town that are good, but now that they play downtown, we have hit a couple of the pub type places and they are ok. Downtown Evansville is an ugly, mostly desolate place, that I'd ordinarily advise anyone avoid. But since the new Ford arena was built, there are a few more eating options that have popped up.

game summary:
they played good, we played bad

we need more effort out of a couple guys
when the biggest guy on the floor goes 1-6, scores 2 pts and gets zero rebounds, he needs to sit, why is he still in there?

Ugly. Final score Evansville 68 Bradley 44.

Donte and Child's had decent games. Everyone else didn't. Just an awful performance.

That was just plain butt ugly. 2 people showed up and the rest were flat as- NO SHOWS. That very well may have been the worst effort I've seen from a BU team in years. Eu beat us in every phase of the game. Our decision making, shot selection and hustle for loose balls was just not acceptable.

Jekyll and Hyde.

Reminds me of a lot of Molinari's teams. Tough at home and pitifully awful on the road.

if I can see a silver lining it's this...

we used to have our guys play as well as they possibly can and we'd still lose by 20, 30 or 40

now at least it takes a really bad game from several of our guys to lose this bad... progress?

IMO, what’s more amazing is that Brown had such a bad game and yet he played more minutes, 32, than anybody. No one with more than 3 fouls either.

Thought the same thing along with why he didn't take the guys that weren't playing hard and replace them even if it was with walkons. Maybe someone would have got the message. LVB didn't have the worst game but sat a lot, couldn't quite understand some decisions but then I'm not the coach either.

I think Brown played 19 minutes the first half.

Still trying to wrap my head around what happened. How can we go from one game outrebounding one team by double digits and then the next game get outrebounded by double digits? How can we go from having good movement on offense leading to open shots to looking disorganized and just going one on one? How can we go from playing lock down defense to looking like we've never played defense? It just can't be as simple as home versus road is it? Wardle and the team need to answer these questions or it'll be another Thursday night viewing party for Arch Madness.
