it's the last regular season game today at Drake. ISU could use a win to build some momentum heading into the MVC tourney. Starts at 3pm (EST)
game just underway at CU, we'll see how the new look Sycamores fare in this game.
Live stats link is here for those interested
Don't see a live stats link YET but here is the AP link if it happens:
I'm visiting family in Goergia this week. If this game had been scheduled for Friday I could have stopped off on my way home............oh well.
Sycamores lost a 7-1 lead but rallied to win 12-8. Sycamores had home runs by Burnam & Jett among 13 hits but used five pitchers to close it out. The pitching staff allowed 7 hits, gave up 7 walks and struck out 10 batters.
huge game today to see how ISU responds after yet another starter ends her season with an ACL tear. Also important to beat MSU to stay near the top in the MVC.
4 other games in the MVC too.
UNI vs. Bradley
Evansville vs. Drake
SIU vs. Creighton
WSU vs. Illinois State
Two future Sycamores are set to square off at the Hulman Center Friday Feb 27. What I find interesting is that the ISU women have a home game scheduled that night at 7pm. How is this going to work?
really important game for ISU tonight, and it's on Fox Sports Midwest too, so if you haven't seen the women play, tonight is a good opportunity. Need to win to keep pace with Illinois State, who plays at Bradley tonight I believe.
From the Trib star...
WR Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals -- son of former ISU offensive tackle Larry Fitzgerald.
Pittsburgh Steelers radio network analyst Tunch Ilkin -- former ISU All-Missouri Valley Conference center and Pro Bowl offensive tackle for the Steelers.
The senior Fitzgerald and Ilkin started...
can the young girls pull off a sweep of this road trip today? We'll find out soon, the game starts in less than an hour. Here is the live stats link from MSU
I would guess it's on radio too?
Big day in the Valley...
14-14 at the 11:26 mark, ISU is shorthanded tonight, so if they win this it's gonna take a monumental effort from the guys out there.
ISU already with 5 turnovers, Bradley's defense is really pressing ISU. We can only hope for the best.
I don't think Marshall is going to play, haven't heard...
well, what happens in Des Moines tonight? I predict the same thing we've seen lately, ISU jumps out to a lead, goes into the half w/ a lead, comes out with a big scoring drought in the 2nd half at some point, Drake takes the lead, ISU panics and starts turning the ball over left and right and...
ISU currently trailing at the half 30-24, ISU shooting 25% from the field and being outrebounded 23-15, not a good start to the post Leah Phillips era, gotta get'em in the 2nd half hopefully!
here are live stats...
won't be able to post during the game, but might as well start a game thread. 2:05 start time (EST). Let's hope the small, quiet crowd at Hulman today can lull the Blue Jays to sleep and let ISU win it's 4th in the last 5 games against CU at Hulman Center.
will they be wearing the 1979...
