Just announced- Missouri State will be missing 2 players tonight due to an adverse reaction to a cryotherapy session.
Abdul Fofana and Reggie Scurry are out tonight.
Abdul Fofana is not a big loss for Missouri State. He rarely plays and averages just 0.8 ppg (lowest average on the team), 5.2 minutes per game, and he has played in just 13 games.
Reggie Scurry is a physical forward who is their 3rd on the team with a scoring average of 8.9 ppg & 4.2 rpg, and he is their top man off the bench.

Is Alize Johnson sick? He is on very short rotations so far.

Edit: he just picked up his third foul, I missed the first minute of the game or so. Didn’t realize he was in foul trouble.

Now heís barely played in the second half. It helps to defend home court when the preseason conference player of the year is half the player he normally is against you. Great effort overall. Childs is a spectacular recruit. Now we need to export a home performance to terre haute

Default WOW

What in the name of Lydia Moss Bradley happened tonight?
Sure MSU was lacking some players, but, BU beat them like they should
of. Beat them like a drum.

Can't believe crowd was smaller than Sat. What else is there to do in PIA on a Tues which would be more fun? This team is defending their HOME COURT. Put down the TV remote, shut down your PC's/smart phones, get off your buns and get downtown to support this team.

The more people who show up, the more fun it is. If BU can climb back to its hey day, MBB in PIA will be the top entertainment experience in the winter, where you don't have to sit next to a frozen lake (rink) to enjoy. Got BB, Cheerleaders, Band, Half-Time show.....what's not to like, and, its family and kid friendly.

-great scouting and strategy to go offensively right at Alize Johnson and pick on his weak spot, thus getting him in early foul trouble
-had they NOT gotten greedy and brought Alize Johnson back in the first half, then he'd have been more effective and helped them stay close in the 2nd half
-but they did bring him back & he quickly picked up his 3rd foul on a charge, then he was afraid to play defense and Lusk started the in-and-out, offense-defense subbing to spare him from having to play defense. But being shuffled in and out so much obviously affected him - he's used to just playing and not having to look over his shoulder continually to see if someone's subbing in for him.
-the closest thing to a turnover-free game yet - only 5!!
-TIED with Missouri State for 4th place, but InSU's playing on the road tomorrow so we could be in 3rd
-now let's go get one on the road!!

Another repeat of the last game against Evansville. Everyone who played had a good game. Bradley pulled out to a double-digit lead early, but gave all but 1 point of the lead back before halftime. Then they ran out to another big lead at the start of the 2nd half, and this time they sustained the effort, and stretched the lead out and won by 20 points.

Box score-
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-bas...meId=400989709

Donte Thomas with a tremendous game- 13 points and 7 rebounds in just 23 minutes
Elijah Childs had 12 points & 12 rebounds in 29 minutes
Darrell Brown had 20 points & 8 assists and NO turnovers!
DLO had 9 points and played incredible defense on the MSU guards
Jayden had one of his best games- 7 points and just 1 turnover and also played good defense
Koch Bar looked really good off the bench- 6 points 4 rebounds
Nate Kennell didn't score much but had 4 assists, and played very well

The entire team's defense was superb, and the game plan and coaching was perfect. They held Missouri State to 31.6% shooting and 24.2% from three. BU outrebounded MSU 39-35. 52 points is easily a season-low for Missouri State.

And Bradley had only 5 turnovers as a team, the lowest total I can recall.
MSU did get 17 offensive rebounds, which is too many, but a lot of those came from taking a ton of three pointers (33).

Bradley is now 15-7, 5-4. They are tied with Missouri State for the second most wins among MVC teams (15), and the second best overall record (15-7). And they are the only MVC team undefeated at home, now 11-0!

Now Bradley just needs to carry over this home success to their next game at Indiana State. Go Braves!

Cryotherapy (exposure to extreme cold) is a procedure claimed by some (without much real scientific evidence) to relieve muscle pain, sprains and swelling of soft tissue, and there are some completely unsubstantiated claims it can improve muscle performance..
That is the first time I have heard of a college basketball team using it on their team members, though overall it has gained in popularity in the last few years, and I wouldn't be surprised if other teams have tried it.
But if not monitored closely, the extreme cold can cause tissue damage just like excessive heat can. And foot blisters don't always heal quickly (ISU's Elijah Clarence was out over a month with blisters on his feet), so Scurry and Fofana might end up missing more games.

That was easily the most fun Iíve had at a BU game in 5+ years. Tremendous effort on D, and a lot of flow and execution on offense. I was so glad to see Donte outplay Johnson to that level, and kudos to our staff for having them ready and for calling alley oop passes 4-5 times. Niiiiice

I loved the second half! Especially liked how 6'7" freshman Elijah Childs wanted the ball down low to take it right at 6'7" junior Obediah Church.

It's not new, I had heard of athletic departments installing cryo-chambers in their own facilities for athlete use. A quick google search names a few.

Obediah Church is a good defensive player, and a good shot blocker. He had 4 blocks tonight and leads the MVC in blocks. He also lead the MVC last year, and was second to Egidijus Mockevicius as a freshman.
When he first entered the MVC, I thought he had a chance to become a dominant player in the MVC. However, his offensive game has not really improved since his freshman season.

Here are his stats over his 3 seasons-
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-bas...obediah-church

His point production has stayed almost the same, and his rebounding has actually regressed a little. Plus his ≈50% free throw average hurts them in close games. He is such an athletic kid, it's hard to figure out why he hasn't developed better than he has.

https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb...-church-1.html

You can check out some of his advanced stats and see he is stuck in a very low usage role. He’s an elite shotblocker but has seen his defensive rebounding slowly fade every year. But he has gotten better on the offensive glass every year. He’s gotten better at only taking the shots he’ll make. He’s apparently not asked to do too much. Or else he isn’t comfortable doing anything but shot blocking and rebounding.

If you look up Childs advanced numbers you find they actually have very similar block rates. Church could be a great comparison for Eli’s future on the defensive side.

On the season they are producing very similarly, but in conference alone Eli has been much better. Eli’s a bigger part of the offense, and Church has seen his rebounding numbers really dip.
