Men's Basketball / A mismatch
March 16, 2023, 06:30:34 PM
What exactly is a mismatch in D1 basketball?  I've heard the term for decades but am really unclear what it means.  I get the extremes.  For example if a 5 footer is guarding a 7 footer in the paint, that's a mismatch.  But coaches talk about mismatches all the time among really talented players, so I get confused.  Anyone have any guidance?  Thanks!

You win the conference and lose the conference Tournament you get an automatic NIT bid.  Congrats to Morehead.

I was watching the ESPN hosts picks after the selection show last night and two of them had Miami in the Final Four.  Apparently they haven't seen Drake play.

Quote from: smidge34 on March 10, 2023, 10:44:07 PMI was under the impression POY was a regular season award?
You are correct and I was wrong.  The Illinois State player, Paige Robinson, won it a few days ago.

I think she has done enough, but really needed 3 more points.  Had we won today and upset the #1 seed, that might have clinched it.  As it is, I think the POY is still playing.

I'm watching the ACC tournament now and seeing #8 Syracuse currently being smoked by a #9 Wake.  Looking at the Big Ten and SEC seedings as well and seeing how many former Final Four teams are double digit seeds in their conference tournaments.  It's hard to stay at the top of heap in a good conference.  We have our work cut out for us.

While you are making some valid points wkeown, the move is made and our only option is too look ahead.  There is zero chance that we'll ever return to the OVC.  Besides, like smidge said, this is a fun conference to be a part of. I had  I actually agree with a lot if what you are saying, I just prefer being happy with where we are rather than regret leaving where we were.  Going to have to readjust my values though and appreciate the regular season games more since post season appearances will likely be much less frequent.

Lunardi has #12 Drake playing a #5 Miami in the Midwest.  I know which 12-5 upset I'm picking.
Men's Basketball / Our Next NCAA Appearance
March 04, 2023, 06:31:54 PM
I've been a Denver Broncos fan all of my life.  Since the Super Bowl started in 1970, the Broncos have appeared in 8 Super Bowls and won 3.  Not a bad record for 53 seasons, but who knows when or if they will ever return.   
Since I joined the faculty at Murray State in 1996, the Racers have made the NCAA tournament 11 times (out of 18 total) and advanced four times.  Eleven times in 27 years is pretty good.  Prohm made the tournament once in four years, which is pretty good as well.
What are realistic expectations moving forward?  The MVC is currently a very competitive one bid league.  Hopefully it can position itself to once again be a multi-bid league, but it's not there yet.  My guess is that we'll be fortunate to "go dancing" once every four years, like Prohm did, and that will be an achievement to be proud of.  What do others think?

We had a blast here as well.  Fun city to hang out in.  Not used to seeing fans from other teams at tournament time, but there are a lot of hard core BB fans in this league.  UNI lost on day 1, but still had a strong turnout on day 2.    
I was surprised Murray didn't have more fans, especially students.  I think it was a combination of the weekday game, the likelihood of winning, the distance, and the nasty storms yesterday that kept people away.
We were delayed over on hour on the drive today due to construction on I-57.  Plan accordingly.

Not much.  That's why college tournaments are so interesting.

I'm in the corner.  But then again, we're not A-listers.  Reminds me of my high school lacrosse days.  I wasn't a very good athlete, so in practice the coach would tell the starters to run a play and "you other guys" watch.  We joked amongst ourselves that we were "just another other".  
Still am.  I'll see all of you "other guys" in the corner😀

I'm pretty excited.  Never been to the Enterprise Center and looking forward to watching a game there.
