ISU lost 73-69 to Murray State in today's "secret scrimmage" at USI. Tyreke Key had 16 points. Jordan Barnes had 11 points & 11 assists. Christian Williams had 11 points, 6 assists. ISU led by one at half & then both teams went berserk in the 2H. Both shot over 50% in the 2H.

Tevin Brown led Murray State with 28 points on 9 of 16 shooting. Murray also outrebounded ISU 44-31. ISU cut down on its turnovers from the SEMO scrimmage, but still high at 16.

Blew them away on the boards. Only won by 4. Must have shot poorly. Wonder if Cowart played. Wonder how good the guys who didn’t play for them are.

Cooper Neese is a key player for us in that list. The others are freshman or bench riders. I was shocked to see that we only lost by 4.

I heard Cowart did not play. Looks like he will ease back into the lineup.

Not sure why you’d be surprised seeing how we rely on a redshirt freshman at PG who hasn’t played a game’s worth of college minutes, backed by two true freshmen. At our level the point god is everything and it will take time for them to play well at the D1 level. You guys’ stud SG Tyreke Key played and played well, just not as well as our stud SG.

That's concerning news about Cowart. We need the big guy to be at 100% for us to reach our potential - especially early in the season when we are relying on point guards with no D1 game experience. Is he at least practicing with the team or is he limited to conditioning and shooting at this point?

I was told they’re just using an over abundance of caution like last season and he will be fine.

PS we were without our ALL OVC power forward for the scrimmage, so there’s that.

The thing with scrimmages are you don’t know what the coaches are looking at. They know what they have in certain players and wanting to see young guys in a different situations. Especially on this one where very few saw the game

What was the score of your Scrimmage with Semo?

ISU won by the unofficial score of 81-65 over SEMO. They outrebounded SEMO 40-31. 5 guys in double figures. C Williams 16, T Williams 11, Barnes 11, Neese 10, Barnes 10. No info on SEMO scoring. Every time our guys can play against DI competition will be of benefit.

Heard the same thing. He is limited in practice with the team and is in full participation in shooting and conditioning at this point. Sounds like he's likely to miss the exhibition and game 1, could be active as soon as Tennesee (Nov 12)
