I expect Holliday and Robinson to have breakout games soon.

These teams are very, very close in size and experience.

SIU does a fantastic job of taking care of the ball and they don't commit many fouls.

71% of their production comes from four players.....
Marcus Domask
Barret Benson
Aaron Cook, Jr. and
Eric McGill

As they go, so go the Dawgs!

I'm not overly confident that we'll beat the Salukis by this large of a margin but this is what the numbers say so this is what I'm going with. :doh:

Hopefully I didn't leave something out! :pray:

Keep in mind the data set is small so the error margins are high. :shrug:

But have they played a game with OVC refs?

From 6 down to start to 6 up at the half. Now for a better start in the second half.

One thing I am puzzled at - Demond Robinson is not getting a lot of time vs. the Div 1 opponents. The man is huge! I have seen some tweets from him recently that indicate (to me) that he may be being tested a bit in the practices and his frustrations are bubbling up (a la Gilmore last year).

Now I know that McMahon knows best, but when Smith and Cowart get some fouls on them...especially early in the half..why not give the guy 3-5 minutes? Probably part of CMM's process and I do trust him. Just surprised that this is happening already.

BTW, I don't think that "tweets" automatically deserve to be honored with a response. Just hope that he is keeping things in perspective because I think his talent is huge.

Exactly on Robinson. Brown has really improved on his deep drives and assists under bucket.

Brown is smoking hot, but hard to get him open anymore. He is creating his own shot more. What’s the deal on Robinson?

Work in progress. For team and CMM in my opinion. We’ll get the kinks worked out. SIU probably better than their record. Hoping Robinson plays well enough in practice that CMM will be forced to give him 8-10 minutes per game.

Good start. But, Santa, will you please bring us 3 wins over Belmont, and, a partner for the second weekend of the Dance in March?

Really like our rebounding this season. Looks like Chico is working his way into starting lineup.

I don't think anyone is going to keep Carter out of the starting line-up at the point. I am very exited to watch him run things for the next 4 years. Robinson will get the nod if he's doing it every day in practice. I sure hope he's able to cope with the demands of the college game, and by demands, I mean playing hard nosed defense and getting in condition for it. He's a beast.

McMahon going to the 1-3-1 zone in the last 8 minutes really threw SIU for a loop for 3 or 4 possessions and allowed us to open up the big lead. Nice change of pace by coach.

Agreed. Slashing and pitching was the only thing keeping SIU close. That put an abrupt stop to it.

Haven’t read the SIU board but I’m sure it’s Hinson’s fault.
