    This would be a nice win to start off the season. Unfortunately, between guys coming off injuries that haven't practiced much and others who can't play, I'm going to with Testacle State 75, ISU 64.

    Take care of the ball. Defend like a SOB. Rebound. We will have a chance on the road - we have to compete at both ends and bring the energy. I'm excited to see what these guys are made of. Arguably two of our better players are going to be out for a month. Either these guys are going to use that as an excuse or they are going to compete like hell trying to prove something. I'm not worried about the outcome of this one - I just want to see us take care of the ball, defend and rebound decently. That's what I'm going to be watching.
    Roll Timber!

    This one will heavily be on the coaches and how they allow our guys to match up I'd think.

    Are they going to let JB try to guard the 6'3" Persons again? He basically just went to the basket all day long last time we played them. In their exhibition against UIndy, I don't even think he played (suspended for violation of team rules) but all three guys that had standout games are guys we offered or inquired about in Mallers, Teague and Walton.

    Walton is a big time athlete that can get to the rim so we're likely going to get a steady does of driving and drive/kick to shooters. Both individual and team defense is going to have to be on point to win this game.

    Ball State should be a very good team this year. Their Center is questionable, so that would help if he is out or limited. I think you put Key on Persons, but then again Walton likes to play some physical ball.. So either way JB better have his big boy pants on. I guess you could go Holston on one of the guards and then have JB chase Mallers around..Bottom line is we need to play well to have a shot.

    Yep, them having two physical guards, both with height and that are proficient at taking it to the rim poses a serious issue for us. I would have loved to have this game with Neese and Williams eligible.

    I know the staff doesn't like using it, but Ball State has the personnel where a zone defense may be good in spurts.

    During last week's coaches show, Lansing (and Fritzy) talked about how they've actually been working on zone defense in practice.

    So, maybe we'll see it tomorrow.
