Yes. 

UNI had at least 5 calls that should have been made against Bradley go uncalled.

Reeks to me.

Belmont almost pulled off the overtime half-court shot.

The trees gave them every opportunity to steal the game down the stretch, but, truly, it was a phenomenal game played very efficiently by both teams!

The Belmont game was good. Sheppard had a horrible game, until about 5-7 minute's or so left, and then went nuclear. Don't know if it was more Belmont stepping up on D at the end, or the Trees easing up, but they nearly blew all the leaves off their own tree there. Neese was unconscious.

Both early games were worth watching.

Talking with a lot of other Racer fans here at the games, and running into and talking with fans of the other programs. Nobody here is sad at not being in Evansville right now, even if it meant we might win the title and the Bid. Fans of the other teams have been glad to see Racer fans here, and I've been asked several times if we like being here and in this league and tourney. My wife and I are having a blast at this one, and there have been some really good games today. 

Everyone else still loving our new league???

Can I ask what's the percentage of Murray fans compared to everyone else?  Did you guys travel well?

Not nearly as well as recent OVC times, but a decent crowd. Drake had a bigger crowd than us tonight. The Salukis have a really nice crowd right now, bigger than we did. New tourney, longer drive, had to play on a weeknight probably all contribute to this. I imagine if we'd won tonight, our crowd tomorrow would have been much bigger than tonight.

As usual, the Belmont turnout was not as much as the Racers.

This SIU vs MSU late game is a real fight and a lot of fun to watch.

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.

I think it was the play leading up to the tourney that kept fans away.    I've never been as embarrassed as I was at Indiana State.   I'll support this team through thick and thin but I'm sure the 8,000 fair weather fans that travel will sit it out this year.    

Hoping for a great off-season and to come back strong and contend for the title next year.

Had we been having Drake's season and Drake having our season I would guarantee 100% the numbers of fans of each program wouldn't be as close. When we are good that arena will look a lot like The Ford Center 2019.

Drake absolutely stomping Bradley right now.The eye test says they are far the best in this league when right.

Sofar,we played a MUCH better game against Drake. These guys can't hit the broad side of an aircraft carrier, open or guarded. Did NOT expect this kind of game. Hope to see a more competitive H2.

Sitting in the stands right now it looks like BU's fans occupy at least 50% of the arena and maybe 10-15% for Drake.

BU is definitely the attendance winner this year. Would love to see Racer Nation compete with that next year.

jcruse64

I thought BU would recover at the half, and at least make it respectable. This is a beatdown, and we showed up a LOT better in our game with Drake. Shot 34.5 from the field, that's not good when your opponent makes 56% from the field and takes less shots than you, and allow no 2nd chance points on misses. Congrats to Drake!!!
