Looks like we open around 17 point favorites.

Wow...with the thumping EKU took this week at Peay and the strong effort we had against Morehead, I would probably take the under on that one. I think Murray wins by 83-74.

But I like that Vegas is showing us some respect

That's 3 straight push offs by Mayo not called.

Not blaming the refs for our crappy play but some of these calls have been just pathetic.

Man, I love Tevin's game!

Smith's injury was never a good thing but the silver lining is that it's forced KJ to develop quickly. KJW is stepping up big time (as well as Cowart).

I've said it every year but I would have loved to see Mayo in our uniform.

I am going to say Tevin Brown is the Player of the Game. Glad we pulled out the win.

Mayo gets away with a ridiculous amount of offensive fouls.

We would’ve suffered a big hit in the Mid Major and computer polls if we hadn’t come back in this one.

Belmont and Jax St. must have had off nights judging by the scores of their games:

Most of you guys have been around long enough to know you can toss the records when conference season begins. It’s always been that way and always will.

Does Brion still start next game? KJ and Nell are studs.

The last 2 games:
KJ 27 pts/21 rebounds
Darnell 36 pts/15 rebounds
Brion 10 points/6 rebounds

All of you Brion apologists here... What am I missing? (I know there's more than points and rebounds, but c'mon)
