    Bradley and USC lose openers

    Our next opponent, Bradley, lost to Illinois-Chicago by 9 in Chicago.

    Also noticed that our pal Tim Floyd's #18 Trojans lost at home to Mercer by 15!

    Will be interesting to see how we do on the road in Peoria on Wednesday.

    BU will be Tough

    Carver Arena will be a tough place to get a win. I'd bet there will be 9,500 people at the game and the crowd will be loud.

    Add to that BU's strength is in the guard court. Ruffin is a very good point guard so Peterson & Garrett will need to step up big time.

    I haven't seen is Wesley will play, but we definitely need Wesley, Rashon & Jiri in the lineup.

    Re: Bradley and USC lose openers

    I will be at this game in person (since I live in Peoria) so I will be 1 for the cyclones cheering my head off! This game will be tough, and I would hate to say it but with out Wesley I think we're not going to stand a chance (with our young guards and all)

    That said, I thought I heard someone say Wesley will be ready to go, and if he is I think we win a close one. Go clones!

    Re: Bradley and USC lose openers

    Win or lose this game it wont matter too much in the long term. Nobody will count it as a bad loss. It will be a nice prep for the Big 12. Winning would be great, but even if we dont Id rather get this first road game against a good team out of the way before we try to play Minn at home or go on the road to OSU.

    Hopefully our guys can pull an over achieving act and bring home the W

    It will matter. We need EVERY win we can get this year to be NIT bound.

    Re: Bradley and USC lose openers

    Well of course you need every win you can get. My point is that playing a game like this might count in a loss today, but really help us get some wins down the road.

    Re: Bradley and USC lose openers

    We really need the win since they might end up with a very nice RPI rating at the end of the year, at least every other team in that conference does lately.
