For what it's worth ESPN has the Racers with a 90.9% chance of winning on Thursday night against Eastern. Now comes the hard work of making it happen. We need a solid performance from all of the guys this week. Hopefully we have gotten the sloppy play at the end of the game out of our system on this past road trip.

They're gonna get up in the faces of our ball handlers and press us all night long. Have to limit turnovers and shoot our average or better from 3. This game should be a battle start to finish.

I'll feel safe if we have a 50 point lead with under a minute to play.

Eastern does everything that we have struggled with this season. This could be a tough game. We will know if the Racer are for real tomorrow

Maybe the reason why the United States has the highest death rate among industrialized nations is that we are more worried about cheerleading competitions than people dying.

Great minds think alike 75. Vegas opened at Good Guys -11.5 and is there now at various books...I know your spread is higher but double digit lines from both parties is a good thing I think.
Go Racers!

I'll take a 10 to 12 point win tonight and be happy. Just hope this team has learned it's lesson about relaxing with a lead at the end of a game. Seems like we play better if we never get a big lead. They stay focused in a tight game where they have been making boneheaded plays with bigger leads.

Amen to that!

I will be glad for a one point win, given the level of competition.  This is not the type of EKU team we have seen recently.

This is true and even so we've really only had one easy victory at home vs. EKU in the last thirteen years or so.
It\'s not easy being the best, but around here it\'s tradition.

Broken record here but we absolutely have to start hitting our free throws.

and our point blank shots

Was the score on TV wrong?

At the 2:11 mark, the score was 23-27 - the EKU player made the shot, Eaves fouled him, and before he took the free throw (which he missed) it was 26-27.
