He earned his way to the bench. Now he needs to earn his way back into the rotation. He’s our least effective offensive player so he has to earn PT with defense and rebounding, and it just hasn’t been there lately. Time to step up as a senior leader.

Am I the only one who thought Davis looked good early in the year? He looked good on the boards. I thought he looked capable of hitting some 3’s. I thought he’d be more productive than he had been.

Davis doesn't have much of a physical presence on the court, playing smaller than his height. If he could shoot 40% from the 3 line, he would be a valuable sub. He tends to be foul prone on defense. I'm not willing to toss him aside. He did play well earlier in the year.

No - they played 3 forwards between 20 - 25 minutes each, although one of those forwards is listed at 6' 5". They were often playing 1 big and 4 guards last night but when two of their bigs got in foul trouble they played small ball.

I think we should all agree that Cowart is a rising stud inside and is worthy of as many minutes as we can give him.

Pretty sure they weren't running 5 guards when they went on that 17 - 0 run in the first half.

We just played another incomplete game but did enough to squeak by. Simple as that.

The superior talent and athleticism of our guys allowed them to easily put EIU away when they decided to flip the switch. They key is bringing that level of intensity on a more consistent basis.

We won because EIU quit scoring. No doubt, we did have something to do with that, but EIU simply missing the shots they had been hitting all game was the most of it. The defense flat out stinks. Until that changes, this team is going to under-perform.

If the Racers come out with the intensity they showed in the last 5ish minutes they will run the table to the Dance. If they play like the majority of the first 35ish minutes there will be no postseason. Tevin Brown played with KILLER intensity late. It felt like 8 of his 11 boards came in the last run.

EIU was shooting better than 50% from 3 for most of the game so them cooling off late isn’t surprising and they still wound up north of 40%.

If big Nell could jump he'd be unstoppable. Dang rim keeps rejecting him. His soft touch gets blocked a lot too.

Can we please get a time limit on monitor reviews!

Does the OVC whistle have anything to do with defense slide? I know it's nothing like it was but the constant whistles might be in their heads. Shouldn't be in their heads as much as Matt's constant push for effort on D though.
