    Is this the best they can do?

    At one point in last night's Indiana vs eicc game both teams were a combined 1 out of 21 from three. Is that even basketball?

    Quick answer is yes. That is the best Iowa can do. They had 14 at half. Even their football team can score that.

    Could be. Or could just be really bad offense. Having seen Iowa play a couple times this year, I vote bad offense.

    Didn't turn the game on until halftime. Defense or not, 14 points is horrendous. I could not believe the score when I saw that.

    And yet we still scored 69 points. Which would you rather watch, a team that scores 14 in a half and gets blown out, or a team that scores 70 consistently and has only been blown out once all year.

    Re: Is this the best they can do?

    Scoring 60 and losing to the number 1 (for now) team in the country is much better than scoring 69 and losing by 17 to a lesser team. They also did manage to put up 80 on us in IC. Some people will try to make EVERY little thing at eiu out like they are the worst team in NCAA history.

    Needless to say, both of the major state schools didn't look to be NcAA tourney ready yesterday.
