Default Exhibition games

I listened to the ISU game vs. Lewis. We need to keep in mind that the 7' center was out, a 6'9" player is out for personal reasons, and a key freshman recruit out of a strong Maryland Catholic League is also injured. And a 20 ppg game JUCO recruit is academically ineligible. Yet they had a 28 point lead in their exhibition game at one point. They may surprise a lot of teams this year and should be very formidable next year. Bruninga will prove to be a solid player.

You're 100% right Yelberton (yup I am old enuf that I was a real YA Fan back in those days....he just passed a month ago)

I thought they'd struggle even against DII since they had so many guys who were new to DI, but they played well.
Time will tell how they do with the short bench against better teams - they start right off vs. FGCU this Saturday - FGCU is the favorite to win the A-Sun again, and they are ranked higher than any MVC team in the Mid-Major Top 25

so all that stuff about how the Illini actually faced a tough exhibition opponent might have been a little exaggerated...
now that we see EIU loses to their DII opponent..
The two Evansville Reitz HS kids they have Nate Hansen & Alex Stein went 13-17 overall, 8-10 from the arc and scored 40 pts between them.

Wichita won their exhibition game vs. Newman but the interesting thing is how empty the stands were
they announced 5000 but it was way less than that...this really surprised me as they sell out every game, don't they?
The whole upper bowl was empty - http://goshockers.com/galleries/?image=13470
but so was half the lower bowl - http://goshockers.com/galleries/?image=13445

ISU's non-conference schedule is very tough this year, so I do expect them to take some lumps before they get people healthy. I wish Marty would get some games on the schedule for my Aces that are comparable. Other than the buy game at Duke and the Mountain West challenge game, their schedule is horrible. ISUs schedule, along with UNI, is clearly the toughest in the MVC this year.

Too bad it is one year too late for ISU. They could have used this better schedule last year.
