Altes Beer Scoreboard

Postby Commissioner » Sat Nov 11, 2017 8:38 am

Bob-Lo Island is closing for winter, so with the Regular Season finally here, we launch the Regular Season Scoreboard, brought to you by Altes Beer. https://youtu.be/vOSfpTN1QYo
You all recall the Altes jingle from the 1970s:
Greektown by Night
Eastern Market Shopping Spree
Kennedy Square
Funky Motown melody
The town that put the world on wheels and Altes Beer
Good things happen when you put the two together!

Truly those last two lines have to be the greatest of any jingle ever. Probably what led to the founding of MADD.

Anyway, herewith, opening night:

Horizon League
Virginia Tech 111, Detroit 79. Others can comment.

Oakland 85, Fort Wayne 71. OU spotted Fort Wayne an early 8-2 lead, then rolled to victory. The Grizzlies led by 22 at the half and by 33 in the second half before taking their boot off Fort Wayne's neck. Kendrick Nunn had 36 points for Oakland, and Martez Walker chipped in with 17. Isaiah Brock led OU with 12 rebounds, 10 by halftime. Oakland did it without forward Jalen Hayes, suspended for this and the next three OU games. Bryson Scott had 31 for Fort Wayne but didn't get much help. The Titans play Fort Wayne late this month.

Northern Kentucky 81, East Tennessee State 63. Northern Kentucky opened the straddled the half with a 19-2 run to break open a tight game at the BB&T Arena. Horizon Poll preseason Player of the Year Drew McDonald had 22 points and 10 rebounds. The Titans face ETSU in December.

Loyola 84, Wright State 80. There were 10 lead changes and 8 ties in the first half of this game in Chicago. Loyola led the entire second half, but couldn't put the Raiders away until the final seconds. Grant Benzinger had 16 and freshman Everett Winchester 15 for Wright State.

UIC 65, North Carolina Central 55. Not terribly impressive, but good enough for the win in Chicago. Godwin Boahen led UIC with 15 points.

Milwaukee 83, LaCrosse 73. Milwaukee labored past D-III Wisconsin-LaCrosse. All 5 Panther starters scored in double figures, led by Bryce Barnes with 19.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Saint Louis 62, Seattle 46. Part of the Wounded Warrior tournament that will see the Titans play both these teams in the next couple weeks. Both teams shot in the mid-thirties and committed 14 turnovers , but St. Louis dominated the boards, 43-26. The Billikens also got the line 21 more times than the Redhawks. Perhaps a little home cookin' in Saint Louis?

#21 UCLA 63, Georgia Tech 60. Across the world, in Shanghai, short-handed UCLA nipped Georgia Tech as the Techsters missed a three to win and a put back to tie in the final seconds. UCLA played without three of its highly rated freshman class. LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were arrested earlier this week for shoplifting in Shanghai. On the other hand, Georgia Tech also had two suspended starters, Tadric Jackson and Josh Okogie, both suspended for accepting "improper benefits." In other words, between them, the two teams had a potential lineup of suspended players that could have beaten either team on the floor. In the actual game, another freshman, Kris Wilkes, led UCLA with 18. Ben Lammers had 24 points and 10 rebounds for Tech. Meanwhile, UCLA will fly back to the States today, without Ball, Riley, and Hill, who are under a sort of "house arrest" in their hotel as the legal process begins to play out. I would assume at the end of the day China will fine them and let them go, but I guess we will see.

Central Michigan 108, Siena Heights 48. I think we're gonna beat Siena Heights later this month.

Murray State 118, Brescia 61. Byron Hawkins had 28 for the Racers.

Providence 84, Houston Baptist 55. Houston Baptist is our likely opponent after we lose to Seattle in the first round of the tournament at Belmont this month.

Washington 86, Belmont 82. Washington outscored Belmont 23-10 over the game's final five minutes to avoid an upset in Seattle. Freshman Jaylen Nolan scored 25 points in the second half, 32 overall, and 13 in the final five minutes to lead the comeback. Belmont got 22 points from Nick Hopkins and 18 points and 11 rebounds from Dylan Windler.

Other Games:
#2 Michigan State 98, North Florida 66. It was 13-13 four minutes in, then MSU went on a 19-0 run and it was game over. Miles Bridges had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Eastern Michigan 92, Spring Arbor 60. EMU became the first D-I team to win a game after their 10:30 tip-off. Spring Arbor is, of course, an NAIA team, but a pretty good one--they entered the game at 5-0 with wins over the #1 and #21 ranked teams in the NAIA pre-season poll. So Coach Rob Murphy should feel good that his Eagles took control early and won easily. Elijah Minnie had 22 to lead EMU. Freshman Kevin McAdoo, son and namesake of the Titan great, scored 10 in his debut for Eastern.

#1 Duke 97, Elon 68. Freshman Marvin Bagley had 25 points and 10 rebounds for Duke.
#3 Arizona 101, Northern Arizona 67.
#4 Kansas 92, Tennessee State 56.
#5 Kentucky 73, Utah Valley 63. UVU led by 9 at the half. An 18-0 Kentucky run early in the second half turned the game around, though UVU never quit.

#6 Villanova 75, Columbia 60.
#7 Wichita State 109, UMKC 57. This one was 62-23 at halftime. Once the got up by 60, Wichita State eased off a bit. See, things coulda been much worse for the Titans.
#9 North Carolina 86, Northern Iowa 69. Luke Maye had 26 points and 10 rebounds for UNC.
#10 Southern Cal 84, Cal-State Fullerton 42.
#12 Cincinnati 107, Savannah State 77.
#13 Miami 77, Gardner-Webb 45. Looking at the final score, it's hard to believe Gardner-Webb was only down 4 at halftime.
#15 Minnesota 92, South Carolina Upstate 77. The Gophers had some difficulty with USC-Upstate, but won behind Jordan Murphy's 35 points and 15 rebounds.

#17 Xavier 101, Morehead State 49. See, the Titans coulda done worse. Trevon Bluett had 25 for Xavier.
#18 Gonzaga 97, Texas Southern 69.
#19 Northwestern 77, Loyola (MD) 75. Leading by 14 early in the second half, Northwestern appeared to have this game in hand. But Loyola went on a 21-7 run over the next 5 minutes to tie it. From there on it was a dogfight, with Loyola claiming a 1 point lead on three occasions, before the Wildcats escaped with a narrow win. Northwestern was ranked in the AP preseason poll for the first time ever. Scottie Lindsey led Northwestern with 26 points and 9 rebounds.

#20 Purdue 105, SIU-Edwardsville 74.

#23 Seton Hall 90, Farleigh Dickinson 68.
#24 Baylor 107, Central Arkansas 66.
#25 Texas A&M 88, #11 West Virginia 65. This was an impressive win for A&M. WVU had a 13 point lead less than 8 minutes into the game, but A&M was dominant the rest of the way. They did it without starting forward Robert Williams who was suspended for the game, and star freshman point guard JJ Caldwell, suspended for 5 games. The game was played in Germany.

Alabama 82, Memphis 70.

Mid-Major Upset of the Night: Indiana State 90, Indiana 69. The Syacamores didn't just beat their in-state Big 10 rival, they left them bloodied and naked in the alley behind the arena. ISU took the lead for good about two minutes in, led by 21 at halftime, and by 30 at times in the second half. The Sycamores shot a sizzling 65% from behind the three point line, 59% total from the field, and forced 19 turnovers before a stunned crowd in Bloomington.
Honorable Mentions:
Georgia Southern 85, Wake Forest 83.
Cal-Riverside 73, California 66. Riverside won just 7 games last year, but never trailed last night against their big brother school. Riverside opened the game with a 10-0 run and built the lead to as many as 23 points.

DePaul spent millions (including city money) to build a new stadium. First game is on national television against ND (which should help draw a nice crowd) and the stadium is half empty. Sad.

Scoreboard for Saturday, November 11 (and a Happy Veterans' Day to you all, especially the vets!)

Horizon
A bad night for the Horizon.

Bradley 68, IUPUI 53. IUPUI's debut as a Horizon League team didn't go well, as Bradley led for all but 49 seconds in Peoria. Senior Ron Patterson led IUPUI with 16 points.

Akron 67, Cleveland State 57. This game started out well for the Vikes, who used an early 14-2 run to open up a double digit lead. They were still up 8 at halftime, but a 23-4 Akron run early in the second half put the Zips in charge. The difference in the game was at the foul line, where Akron made 19 of 23 attempts to Cleveland State's 10 of 26--38.5%. Freshman Tyree Appleby led CSU with 13 points, but was emblamatic of their troubles--he was 3-9 from the foul line. Detroiter Kenny Carpenter added 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Kent State 111, Youngstown State 78. In the second game of the Coaches Against Cancer doubleheader in Akron, YSU led a close game 41-39 with a minute left in the first half. But the Penguins surrendered 7 unanswered point before halftime. Kent State followed that with a 10-2 blitz to open the second half, and the rout was on. Like Cleveland State in the first game, YSU had a terrible time at the foul line, making just 12 of 30 attempts. Unlike CSU, though, Youngstown State was thoroughly outplayed in other aspects of the game as well. Cameron Morse led YSU with 19 points, but needed 26 shots to get them.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Michigan 86, North Florida 66. Apparently it is much easier for North Florida to get games with Michigan and Michigan State than it is for us. Playing their second Michigan-based Big 10 school in two days (and kudos to them for that), NFU led early and trailed by just 2 at the half. They kept pace with the Wolverines until the the 9:30 mark, when Michigan finally launched a 21-2 run to open a twenty point lead. Duncan Robinson had 21 points, Charles Matthews 20, and Moritz Wagner 18 points and 12 rebounds for UM.

Western Michigan 103, Siena Heights 72. We'll play both these teams this year, and can probably win at least one of the two. Thomas Wilder led Western with 16 points and 6 assists.

Toledo 98, St. Joe's 87. Jaelean Sanford had 31 points and 8 assists as Toledo won at home.

Other Games of Interest:

#1 Duke 99, Utah Valley State 69. Well, you can't accuse Utah Valley of padding their schedule after opening at Kentucky and Duke on consecutive days. This time, Utah Valley hung with the national power for just 10 minutes, before Duke took control with a 27-8 burst starting midway through the first half.

#14 Notre Dame 72, DePaul 58. With a slew of recruits in attendance, including Michigan's top junior, Romeo Weems, DePaul opened its new arena with a thud. It can be said that they have never held a lead in a regular season game at Wintrust Arena. But actually, it was a pretty good game, very close until Notre Dame slowly pulled away in the final 10 minutes. Bonzie Colson had 18 points and 13 rebounds for the Irish.

#22 St. Mary's 85, St. Francis (Pa.) 68.

Duquesne 80, St. Francis (NY) 70. Detroit freshman Eric Williams led Duquesne with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Duquesne's first 11 games include a road game at crosstown Pitt, and home games against St. Francis, VMI, Robert Morris, Cornell, Maryland-Eastern Shore, Stetson, Delaware State, Mississippi Valley State, North Carolina A&T, and Lamar. Oughta be good for 9 to 10 wins.

Appalachian State 135, Toccoa Falls 34. Toccoa Falls is an NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association) member, tucked away on a beautiful 1100 acre campus in the northwest Georgia Mountains. They bill themselves as "One of the top 25 schools to study the bible." They were, shall we say, no match for Appalachian, which played every person on the roster for at least 10 minutes, and no one for more than 20. The Mountaineers outrebounded the Screaming Eagles (that's really their nickname) 76-24. Toccoa Falls is 0-4, having given up at least 107 points in all 4 games. I know what you're thinking--why didn't we schedule Toccoa Falls?

Mid-Major Upset of the Day: Florida Gulf Coast 98, Illinois State 87. The defending Atlantic Sun champs knocked off the defending regular season MVC champs.

Let the record show that Whitens started his career 2-2 from the field, including a triple.

Also, I was hoping the staff would have offered Williams once it was clear the recruits weren't rolling in. Great start for him at Duquesne.

Sunday, November 12:

Horizon:
Northern Kentucky 93, Wilmington 65. The D-III Quakers quaked before the fierce Norse of Northern. Drew McDonald (18 points, 11 rebounds) and Jeff Garrett (13/15) had double-doubles for the Norse (2-0).

Non-Conference Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 97, UM-Dearborn 73. UM-D hung around for a while, but a 20-5 EMU (2-0) run early in the second half finally opened some room between them and the Little Wolverines. Elijah Minnie had 27 points and James Thompson a second double-double to start the season.

Virginia Tech 132, Citadel 93. Well, we finished 7 points closer to Tech than the Bulldogs did.

Seattle 121, Puget Sound 70. Puget Sound is a D-III team. Richard Gitten led Seattle (1-1) with 26.

Fort Wayne 114, Defiance 59. Fort Wayne rolled past D-II Defiance behind 21 points from Bryce Scott.

Other Games:

#3 Arizona 103, Maryland-Baltimore County 78.
#5 Kentucky 73, Vermont 69. A lot of people are looking at Vermont as one of the top mid-majors in the country this year, and they gave Kentucky a decent game today. The Wildcats used a 12-4 run over the last five minutes of the first half to open a 12 point lead at the break, which they extended to 14 several times early in the second half. The Catamounts didn't fold, however, and closed to within three with 1:45 to play. Kentucky (2-0) held them scoreless the rest of the way to win. PJ Washington had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats. Skyler Nash, who took an official visit to Livernois and 6 before signing with Vermont, debuted with 3 points in 6 minutes of play.

#13 Miami 89, Navy 55.
#16 Louisville 72, George Mason 61. George Mason led for much of the first half and the first 10 minutes of the second, before a 12-0 Louisville run put the Cardinals up for good. Still, Mason was within 4 at the two minute mark, and it was only due to Louisville's 10-10 from the foul line in those final two minutes that the score looks a little lopsided. Flint junior Jaire Grayer had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Mason.

#20 Purdue 111, Chicago State 42. Purdue squeaks by.
#23 Seton Hall 75, Monmouth 65.

Butler 85, Princeton 75.
Mercer 110, Toccoa Falls 43. For some reason, the last bit of yesterday's scoreboard didn't originally publish. Anyway, I've updated that report, so if you missed the report on yesterday's Appalachian State-Toccoa Falls game, scroll back up and check it out. Or don't--I'll tell you: ASU won by 101 points. Not scored 101. Won by 101. Toccoa Falls has now surrendered 587 points in an 0-5 start. This is a team we need to schedule.

LeTourneau 99, Northwestern State 84. D-III LeTourneau beat a D-I team. At least we haven't lost to a D-III team, yet.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Harvard 70, Massachusetts 67. As good as Harvard has been in recent years, this isn't really an upset, but it's a nice win for the Crimson. Sophomore Bryce Aiken, a guy the Titans offered early under Ray but probably never had much shot at, scored 30 for Harvard. "O'er the stands of flaming Crimson, Harvard banners fly. Cheer on cheer like volleyed thunder Echo to the sky."

Bob-Lo has always closed for winter Moose. I'm sure it will reopen in May. Positive.

I only made it to Bob-Lo once. I recall a popular song at the time playing on the ferry ride over... which was "So Alive" by Love & Rockets... so I'm guessing I was there in 1989. I would have been 10 or 11. Glad I made it over before they closed it down, for a very long winter. :)

Week 1 for our Titans is in the books. It 'featured':

Exhibition loss to Wayne. Arguably you could say it doesn't matter since it was exhibition and we toyed with our lineups and spread out the minutes. BUT, its still a L to a cross town, D2 team, on the home court where we should've won on talent differential alone.

Regular season opening loss to Va Tech. Losing was expected, it was a road game against a decent ACC school. Getting routed was less than ideal follow up to the Wayne loss.

Week 1 Grade: D. NOT an ideal way to kick things off all around for the fans (including prospective fans), for the players, for anyone at all.

Week 2 preview: we have UMD tonight and that's got to be a confidence restoring win. We need team work, hustle, hard work, players playing as a unit. Get some good habits established. This weekend kicks of the Wounded Warriors games, hoping for a 1-1 split headed into next week's game with SLU.

I wouldn't be hoping for a 1-1 split in Nashville. I'd be expecting it, and hoping for 2-0. The first game is against Seattle. I just think we ought to beat Seattle. If we don't, we probably draw (barring a big upset on the other side of the bracket) Houston Baptist. Even if we lose to Seattle, we ought to beat Houston Baptist. If we beat Seattle, we probably get Belmont, a good team that will playing at home. So that would be a very tough game. So that's why I'd frame it as we "hope" for 2-0, but we definitely need to come out of Nashville with at least a split, beating either Seattle in the first round or Houston Baptist in the second. If we can't manage that, we're looking at another 8 win season. 2-0 in Nashville would do wonders for my Titan mood.

Belmont defeats Vanderbilt 69-60. If we beat Seattle and Belmont beats Houston Baptist, then we will have a tough opponent on their home court.

Monday, November 13:

Horizon
It was almost a huge night for the Horizon, with IUPUI and UDM taking care of business against outmanned opponents, Oakland thumping a thumpable D-I club, and Milwaukee scoring a huge upset. But UIC couldn't quite make it a perfect night against the A10's St. Joseph's.

UDM 105, UMD 82. The Titans used a little explosion of good ball in the first 10 minutes of the second half to open this one up, then played ragged, schoolyard ball for most the rest of the game. Good enough, I guess. McFolley and Allen were still just a combined 7-20, which just ain't gonna cut it, and Triple J again led the team in shots, which isn't good unless he starts hitting a lot more than 30%. But the Titans got balanced scoring, and picked up 21 assists against just 10 turnovers. Something to build on. Jermaine Jackson is a perfect 1-0 as head coach.

Oakland 87, New Orleans 68. New Orleans (0-2), which lost it's top 4 players from last year's "first 4" NCAA tournament team, was no match for Oakland (2-0). The Grizzlies were up 20 just 10 minutes in, and 25 soon after, and then it was just toying with the Privateers. Martez Walker finished with 25 and Kendrick Nunn 24. The Grizz shot 58% overall and 56% from three. Jalen Hayes is still out.

Milwaukee 74, Iowa State 56. Iowa State is a second division Big 12 team this year, but this was still a very impressive road win for the Panthers. After falling behind by 8 in the opening minutes, Milwaukee battled back to lead by 7 at the half. They kept building the lead after halftime until it reached 20. The Panthers (2-0) forced 18 turnovers and held Iowa State (0-2) to 38% shooting. Four Panthers scored in double figures, paced by Brock Stull with17, but it was forwards Brett Prahl and Bryce Nze who really made the day, shooting a combined 11-13 for for 27 points.

St. Joe's 86, UIC 82 (OT). UIC was up 6 with a minute to go in regulation but couldn't hold the lead. A tough loss for the Flames, and for the Horizon. Dikembe Dixson's 22 points led UIC, but Dixson's overtime consisted of a turnover, two fouls, 0-1 from the floor, and a key miss on a foul shot that could have gotten UIC to within 1 possession with 29 seconds left in the OT.

IUPUI 75, Anderson 43. IUPUI (1-1) was all over little Anderson from the opening tip. Aaron Brennan led with 18 points.

Non-Conference Opponents:

Michigan 72, Central Michigan 65. This game was similar to UM's win over North Florida on Saturday, with CMU leading for much of the first half and regaining a one point lead at a couple points after halftime. A 16-6 run starting with about 7 minutes left finally gave the Wolverines some breathing room. All five Michigan starters scored in double figures.

South Carolina 78, Western Michigan 60. Thomas Wilder had 21 points, but South Carolina (2-0) had too much for Western (1-1).

East Tennessee State 76, Savannah State 61. Devontavious Payne paced the Pirates with 28 points. ETSU is 1-1.

Middle Tennessee State 72, Murray State 67. Nip and tuck all the way in Murray--the biggest lead for either team was 6 points, one time. Nick King had 31 for MTSU (2-0). Murray State (1-1) star Jonathan Stark was held to 6 of 15 shooting, 2 of 8 from three.

St. Louis 74, Rockhurst 50. Most of this game wasn't pretty, but eventually the Billikens (2-0) got the job done.

Belmont 69, Vanderbilt 60. Belmont took the lead 5 and half minutes in and never gave it up. Dylan Windler had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and Amaze Egekeze added 22 and 7 for the Bruins. Both teams are 1-1.

Other Games You Might Vaguely Care About

#6 Wichita State 81, Charleston 63. This game was more lopsided than the 18 point final margin indicates.
#8 Florida 116, Gardner-Webb 74. Egor Koulechov had 34 for Florida. He then set off after Moose and Squirrel.
#10 USC 75, North Dakota State 65.

#12 Cincinnati 102, Western Carolina 51.
#13 Notre Dame 88, Mt. St. Mary's 62. 27 and 11 for Bonzie Colson.
#14 Minnesota 86, Providence 74. Rick Pitino the Younger returned to his alma mater, and the Gophers (2-0) slowly ground out a win in Providence (1-1). The Big 10 draws first blood in this year's Gavitt Challenge. Jordan Murphy led the way with 23 points and 14 rebounds.

#15 Xavier 101, Rider 75. Trevon Bluett had 26 points and 9 rebounds for Xavier (2-0).
#20 Northwestern 75, St. Peter's 66.
#21 St. Mary's 92, New Mexico State 74. St. Mary's (2-0) pulled away in the second half, behind 20 points and 10 boards from Jock Landale.
#25 Baylor 70, Texas A&M-CC 46.

Grand Canyon 75, Robert Morris 61. 6833 turned out in Phoenix for this game between two teams mentioned as possible Horizon membership candidates. Of course, we wouldn't want a successful program like Grand Canyon. Better to raid the Summit.

La Salle 75, Penn 71. Big 5 action! And good action. B.J. Johnson tied the game with the last bucket in regulation, then tied it again with the last bucket in the first overtime, and La Salle won it in the second OT. Johnson finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds in the season opener for both teams.

VCU 95, North Florida 85. After playing Michigan State and Michigan back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, the Ospreys figured, hey, why not stop and lose to VCU on the way home? No one can accuse them of scheduling cupcakes. Detroiter Justin Tillman led VCU with 27 points.

Lynchburg 83, Norfolk State 80. D-III Lynchburg surprised Norfolk. There are worse things than an exhibition loss to D-II Wayne State.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: In a big night for mid-majors, I'm gonna go with Belmont over Vandy, noted above. Beating their crosstown SEC rival is huge, and they were impressive in doing so. Honorable mentions to Milwaukee's stunning upset of Iowa State; to Montana, which knocked off Pitt 83-78 in overtime behind Michael Oguine, who scored the Grizzlies last 10 points in regulation and finished with 29; and to little Morgan State, which beat AAC member South Florida, 63-53.

It's becoming apparent that Milwaukee snagged a pretty good coach from UofM a while back.

That's true, but Jordan took the head coach job at Butler in the off season. Milwaukee hired an assistant coach from Northwestern to take his place.

However, the 2nd half sounds eerily like the Milwaukee games at JLA last March. ISU shot 3-15 in the second half until just a few minutes left. Only 24 points.

Here is how the local sports columnist saw this shocker.

http://www.amestrib.com/sports/20171113/hines-column-shocking-result-for-isu-hoops-even-with-lowered-expectations

Even the most skeptical, cynical and pragmatic could not have expected to see what happened Monday night at Hilton Coliseum.

Even those who were clear-eyed about the rebuilding season underway in Steve Prohm’s third year at Iowa State could not have anticipated what the Cyclones did.

ISU was run out of its own building by a team picked to finish eighth in the Horizon League.

The Cyclones lost to Milwaukee, which is coming off an 11-24 season and has a new head coach, 74-56 in its first home-opening loss since 1997.

Simply, it was a shocking result, no matter the known issues after losing four all-Big 12 starters and incorporating eight new players into the program. Upsets happen, even at Hilton Coliseum, but to play so poorly and defeated so soundly by a team the caliber of Milwaukee remains an astounding and notorious defeat.

“You know what they’re going to say,” Prohm said of outside criticism. “You don’t have to check Twitter. You already know what’s on Twitter.

“At the end of the day, we’ve got a long way to go.”

That is absolutely clear.

The Cyclones shot 38.1 percent for the game and 20 percent from 3-point range. They turned it over 18 times. They shot 25 percent from the field in the second half and didn’t make a 3-pointer after halftime. They trailed by as many as 20 points in the second half.

Against Milwaukee. In Hilton Coliseum, a building once revered for crushing opponents on its own.

“You’re going to go through tough moments in seasons,” Prohm said, “and this is one of those moments. Hopefully, we have the character to continue to grow and get better.”

ISU was sure to go through growing pains this season, with the roster turning over and a lack of proven players.

The Cyclones undoubtedly were going to have their struggles, but now the question will be is the season’s start the low point?

If getting blasted at home against a Horizon afterthought isn’t the bottom, you’re starting to plumb some serious depths.

The Cyclones should be able to get better by simply adding Hans Brase (ACL) and Cameron Lard (coach’s decision), who have missed the first three games. They’ll help shore up a frontcourt that has massively underperformed first against Missouri and now Milwaukee. Their presence should seriously help inside.

But having them around probably isn’t going to do anything about ISU’s wretched 3-point shooting. They’re not going to be able trim the turnovers significantly. They won’t be the ones suddenly closing out strong on shooters.

Brase and Lard will help, but they are not saviors.

The truth of the matter is ISU can’t expect an easy fix this year. The roster is the roster. Prohm will tinker — or overhaul — to get the most he can out of it, but there are inherent limitations.

There’s no reason to panic in mid-November after two games, but after the blowout loss — and make no mistake, it was a blowout — to the Panthers, the worry-meter has to be in the red that this will be among the most painful ISU hoops seasons in recent history.

The Cyclones have a lot of work to do.

“We need to play with a chip on our shoulder,” Prohm said, “a nastiness to prove people wrong and a toughness that we have so much resiliency and character about us that we’re going to fight through this. That’s what we need to be about.”

There’s a lot of basketball left. It remains to be seen if that’s a good or bad thing for ISU.

Post game news from Glare-top last night...Tony Paul tweeted "Status for Oakland's Kendrick Nunn is TBA for next few games. Left tonight's game with a rolled ankle. Not sure of severity yet."

I didn't see final stat sheet but Nunn inexplicably played every minute of the first half despite the route being on over NO. Kampe getting an early jump on focusing all the minutes on a few people thus playing into an annual tradition of some type of wearing out if not a flame out come late season.

Commissioner wrote:Sunday, November 12:

Horizon:
Northern Kentucky 93, Wilmington 65. The D-III Quakers quaked before the fierce Norse of Northern. Drew McDonald (18 points, 11 rebounds) and Jeff Garrett (13/15) had double-doubles for the Norse (2-0).

Non-Conference Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 97, UM-Dearborn 73. UM-D hung around for a while, but a 20-5 EMU (2-0) run early in the second half finally opened some room between them and the Little Wolverines. Elijah Minnie had 27 points and James Thompson a second double-double to start the season.

Virginia Tech 132, Citadel 93. Well, we finished 7 points closer to Tech than the Bulldogs did.

Seattle 121, Puget Sound 70. Puget Sound is a D-III team. Richard Gitten led Seattle (1-1) with 26.

Fort Wayne 114, Defiance 59. Fort Wayne rolled past D-II Defiance behind 21 points from Bryce Scott.

Other Games:

#3 Arizona 103, Maryland-Baltimore County 78.
[b]#5 Kentucky 73, Vermont 69. A lot of people are looking at Vermont as one of the top mid-majors in the country this year, and they gave Kentucky a decent game today. The Wildcats used a 12-4 run over the last five minutes of the first half to open a 12 point lead at the break, which they extended to 14 several times early in the second half. The Catamounts didn't fold, however, and closed to within three with 1:45 to play. Kentucky (2-0) held them scoreless the rest of the way to win. PJ Washington had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats. Skyler Nash, who took an official visit to Livernois and 6 before signing with Vermont, debuted with 3 points in 6 minutes of play.
[/b]
#13 Miami 89, Navy 55.
#16 Louisville 72, George Mason 61. George Mason led for much of the first half and the first 10 minutes of the second, before a 12-0 Louisville run put the Cardinals up for good. Still, Mason was within 4 at the two minute mark, and it was only due to Louisville's 10-10 from the foul line in those final two minutes that the score looks a little lopsided. Flint junior Jaire Grayer had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Mason.

#20 Purdue 111, Chicago State 42. Purdue squeaks by.
#23 Seton Hall 75, Monmouth 65.

Butler 85, Princeton 75.
Mercer 110, Toccoa Falls 43. For some reason, the last bit of yesterday's scoreboard didn't originally publish. Anyway, I've updated that report, so if you missed the report on yesterday's Appalachian State-Toccoa Falls game, scroll back up and check it out. Or don't--I'll tell you: ASU won by 101 points. Not scored 101. Won by 101. Toccoa Falls has now surrendered 587 points in an 0-5 start. This is a team we need to schedule.

LeTourneau 99, Northwestern State 84. D-III LeTourneau beat a D-I team. At least we haven't lost to a D-III team, yet.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Harvard 70, Massachusetts 67. As good as Harvard has been in recent years, this isn't really an upset, but it's a nice win for the Crimson. Sophomore Bryce Aiken, a guy the Titans offered early under Ray but probably never had much shot at, scored 30 for Harvard. "O'er the stands of flaming Crimson, Harvard banners fly. Cheer on cheer like volleyed thunder Echo to the sky."


I watched the second half of the Kentucky vs. Vermont game to see Skyler Nash. He didn't score any points or have any impact on the game. However, Vermont is an extremely well coached team, they ran screens set picks, worked the ball around to the open man, took and made a lot of easy three point baskets. They had some decent athletes, they played as a team. Nice to see.

Very true, guys. Of course, not to boast...well actually I am a little bit...I said I thought LaVall Jordan was a very capable coach. Don't know anything about Baldwin, but in Jordan's short tenure it appears the Panthers have changed course and are looking like a force. Long season but the early returns look to be a continuation of their performance in the HL Tournament last year. Me thinks they finish better than 8th.
