It’ll be Western Illinois’ first game. They only play 3 OOC games. Looks like the Summit League is playing games on weekends only. Same team back to back days.

Western Illinois only had 5 wins last year and hasn't had a winning record since 2013.

Ranked #345 of 357 D1 teams, this will be by far the worst team we play this season.

Western Illinois had a coaching change, and only has 2 players on the team who were there last year.

All 5 starters are gone, and their 3 best players transferred to Nebrantska, Oakland, and San Diego.

2 remaining players from last year:
Anthony Jones: 24 games, 16 MPG, 5 pts, 3.3 rbs, 0.5 ats.
Jake Weyhrich: 6 games, 3 MPG, 0.7 pts, 1.2 rbs, 0.2 ats.

The #3 team in America - possibly the #2 team on Monday afternoon - starts five white guys.

Suck it, rest of college hoops in America.

Shawnee does not believe this is a top 5 team.
Top player sure but not team, nope.
Meh. Just one game against a shit team. (that they still won by 41, and gave up less than sixty for the first time this season)

If they come out this unenthused and unfocused against UNC on Tuesday night, then we can talk about their worthiness of, or lack thereof, the ranking.

Luka had the best overall game - like always - but my game ball goes to Nunge tonight.

18 & 5, with a block & a steal, in his return to action after the very unexpectedly unfortunate necessity of having to say goodbye to and bury his father.

Way to make Papa proud as he watches down over you, Jack.

Iowa started playing well once JWoke sat his ass on the bench.

The last 5 minutes of that game were the most emasculating and femme 5 minutes of a basketball broadcast ever.

For sure. Was hoping for a little bit of a postgame show on BTN where they could talk to him and fran.

My only complaint so far is they sometimes get a little too Garza happy and just throw it to him even if 2 guys are hanging off his back. Because of that, Bohannon and Frederick haven’t really had the opportunity to get in the flow with their shots.

That should change starting next week.

Missed the game but was shocked at Nunge's line. Any insight on how he looked tonight?

Started out a little rusty, very understandably, but then settled in and looked very good, in game-shape.

Yes, it was 'just' Western Illinois, but fuck that. After what he just went through, he gets my game ball (as said earlier in the thread).

Think of your posts and then think of the opposite. That is what he looked like.
