    Sure did.

    Watched all of the SIU game and half of the Loyola game. Kentucky with all of their All American McDonald's players stepped on the gas at the end, to pull away. The final score does NOT reveal the competitiveness of this game. If SIU stays healthy....they're going to have a great season. Kevion Pippen looked like he actually belonged on the Kentucky team.

    Even though the Sportwriters said Furman STUNS Loyola, this was NOT an upset. Furman won 23 games last year and has key parts of that team back. Their workhorse inside is Matt Rafferty. This kid has a head harder than a brick and plays like Robbie Hummel did at Purdue. Just when you think he can't give anymore thing to win, he does. Our Devin Thomas and others on our team could learn or thing or two by playing like Rafferty or a Hummel. Also, I'm sure there are some bigger schools that are kicking their own butts for not getting Clay Mounce on Furman's team.

    Dude rocked a one-handed slam dunk to win the game for Furman. Made #2 on Sports Center.

    Salukis had an opportunity against a top 25 team at home against Buffalo tonight. Looks like they got thumped in the second half.

    for those watching ESPN3, Illinois State is on the verge of losing to Chicago State! At home no less, they're down 6 with under 4 to go, sigh

    redbirds storm back and win by 4

    meanwhile Drake never got off the bus in a 29 point loss at Colorado

    Sigh??? I was hoping Chicago State would win.

    I'm actually okay with the MVC being down. Maybe we can stay out of Thursday and make a run in St Louis.

    The conference is looking real tough this season so far. Every time I look at the scores a Valley school is losing. According to the RPI rankings the MVC is currently ranked as the 23rd best conference. Conference USA is currently the best mid major league (5th). They are currently ahead of the Pac 12 and the Big 12.

    Honestly if the MVC can pick things back up I wouldn't mind seeing us do a challenge series with the CUSA, since the MWC challenge is going to end.
