9 ISU turnovers lead to 6 DePauw points in the 1st half so far, this game should be a blowout, but ISU is giving DePauw many early X-mas presents and letting them stay right in the game. I sure hope they don't give them the game too.

Not sure what they need to do to cut down on turnovers, but they need to figure out how to hold on to the ball, and fast.

25-18 ISU leads, TG is blogging too http://blogs.tribstar.com/downinthevalley/?p=141

LE, drove home yest, you should have seen all the vehicles off the road between Sioux City and Omaha on I-29, it was like a scene from Road Warrior - literally

I've seen it in Iowa more times than I care to remember...clueless drivers.

I thought we'd go into half time w/ a double digit lead but about a half minute or so of a lack of focus and it's to 6.

Not a bad end to the half...8 pt game. They did get a decent look there from 3 but missed. Still showing the inconsistency...flashes of really good things, especially Harry w/ patented slashes to the hoop. These flashes are followed up by outlet passes gone awry or stepping out of bounds on baseline drives...got a focus fellas!

it must have been really bad thursday night, vehicles were flipped over, turned sideways, way off into the ditches on either side. Lots of Semi's jacknifed too.

33-26 at the half, that was really difficult to listen to. TEN ISU turnovers lead to 9 DePauw points, ISU should be up 15 points, but instead it's an 8 point game, letting DePauw just hang around. When o' when will ISU play with some intensity for an entire game?

Carl Richard with 4 turnovers alone, as the season progresses I am becoming less impressed with his ability to play at this level.

I hate to think what Evansville is going to do to ISU this year.

Anyone else watching the game on SycamoreVision? The picture is annoyingly dark.

ISU with Zero 3 point baskets in this game so far, kinda unusual.

35-34 ISU leads, this is gonna be close.

13 ISU turnovers = 13 points off turnovers for DePauw

41-38 ISU barely winning with DePauw at the line. Folks this is a D-III team that is hanging right with ISU, as TG said in his blog, if ISU plays like this against ANY MVC team they won't win a game the rest of the way. Tough to listen to this.

Not sure but thought I saw Harry holding his knee going into that timeout...hope it's nothing.

False alarm...cramps in his leg.

it sounds like ISU is going to win,

57-46 with 3 min. or so to go, but we should not be impressed with this win, still, way too many turnovers, careless passes, etc., etc....Still not a single 3 point bucket for ISU

I'll be at the IUPUI game Tuesday, I won't be expecting to see ISU win if they play like this. It's their last shot for a good effort before MVC play begins

well, ISU wins 66-60. I hate to be negative, but that was not pretty, we may have just witnessed ISU's last win of the season. Especially if they play like that the rest of the way. The season is 10 games old and it just seems like they're no better than the NIU game.

16 ISU turnovers lead to 15 DePauw points, that's not gonna fly in MVC play.

final stats

we'll see how Tuesday goes, would hate to lose to a Mid-Con/Summit team. Would not be good for ISU or the MVC.
