well, if you ask me, this is the most important game of the season to date, we need to see how this team responds to the resounding "thud" they left at Drake Weds.

A win will really help as this team hits the road for some very difficult games. Hopefully it's a big crowd, sounds like alot of SIU fans are coming over too.

SIU's defense has always been tough, ISU just needs to fight thru it.

as a side note, ISU has not even beaten SIU in Terre Haute since 2000, time to change that!!

This game really could be a defining moment for the team this year. In the past, we might come out flat, and the wheels would completely fall off and we would lose 9 out of the next 10. We really need this one. We don't just need a win, we need to play a solid all around game and officially put the Drake "game" (not really much of a game the way State played) behind us. Heres hoping we can move to 4-1 in the Valley.

GO BLUE

man, ISU's rebounding is AWFUL! SIU is not a good offensive team, but geesh, when you give them 2-3 shots per trip to the basket they're bound to hit one.

4-4 early on, this is gonna be a low scoring game, first team to 50 wins!

What link can I use to listen on the web? Thanx.

Holmstrom in early and scores 2 points, interesting, he hasn't played much lately.

SIU up by 3, absolutely can not let them get too far ahead as points will be hard to come by in this game.

ISU is really having a difficult time with SIU's defense, gotta be able to get thru that.

Still 23-21 SIU

man, that was not a good 1st half for ISU, down 30-22, shooting is terrible. Changes are gonna have to be made at the half if ISU wants any chance to win this one.

29% from the field, this is Drake all over again.

there just seems to be no fire in ISU at all, they're playing SIU's game here. the ISU guards can't hit the ocean in ths is one and we're being outrebounded 28-19

ISU is shooting TWENTY EIGHT percent from the field, but has a chance to take the lead, this is unreal. It seems the crowd is getting into it finally, maybe this can push ISU over the top and help them get the win. Let's end this SIU losing streak in TH tonight!
