You can tell we have the junior varsity officials again. I guess the conference can’t get good officials on a Saturday.

Tough game to get into a flow.

Last week on KSR radio they said ovc refs make 1,200.00 a game.

There are 161 D1 games today, most of the season. I wonder where these guys rank out of the 483 required officials?

This may be the worst officiated game I have ever watched. It seems like this crew has missed about half of the calls made.

Kamba came in and shut Williford DOWN! Period.

I think Big 12 make $3000 per game. The $1200 tonight per official was no bargain.

Didn’t see the game. We lose an 11 point lead in the second half, then, build it back up to 21. Are we still coasting once we get the lead? We can’t afford to coast at Belmont and against Peay. Kamba looked good?

I guess this is the first time 2 OVC teams have started conf. play 10-0? I really felt like Peay was due a loss tonight.

Only 3 forced steals as a team. That number worries me.

WE weren't really sharp tonight, then got into some foul trouble. SIU-E hit a long, long dry spell in the second half, some of that was our D and we wore them down. Williams had another huge night.

I understand we’re retiring Ja’s number and all but I’m not sure going back to the locker room with only 4 minutes and change left, while SIUe took almost the entire halftime adjusting and figuring out a 2nd half game plan was best decision. SIUe came out looking like it too, at least for 8 minutes. Glad it worked out ok for us.

Kamba is going to be a nice player. Good instincts and quick feet on defense, nice handles and moves through traffic like a water bug.

Could Kamba become a defensive stopper? Very quick tonight and I like his crisp passing. Something I’ve criticized Eaves on at times this year. Noah has definitely had his ups and down this year. Decent game at Evansville, spot start, then no minute for a few games hopefully that defensive intensity has earned a few minutes playing time.

How about that drive in the lane and the dime to KJ for the slam?!

He's quick. Right now he's prone to bad decision making. Of course, he's a freshman, so you have to overlook some of that. I hope he continues to make contributions when needed.

We will probably need some impactful minutes from him subbing for DaQuan Thursday. Belmont will be looking for revenge.

The refs were almost as embarrassing as the mass exodus of fans at least from the upper bowl that left after the halftime ceremony.

First half was decently officiated, but not good. Second half was a complete joke. Any time a team has 6 team fouls like SIUE did before the first media time out, you know something is screwy. Also didn’t know about the rule that you can grab a guy around his neck and it be called a jump ball.
