The line is like 16 or 17.  Sure...WMU can win.  Anyone has a chance.  Without an effective Perkins, that chance increases.

 

The line is 13 now.  Maybe Vegas shifted it in preps for Perkins being limited.

After the initial line, the line generally moves to keep the betting even.

I have the game muted, what was the reason for the technical?

Oats fell to the ground after a travel on that three

Was that the 3 that McRae sank? The MAC refs keeping things close.

No, it was the one Davis hit after a travel, but he was arguing that they called it on McRae.

That's not a T for Flowers pointing at Dontay the whole way down the floor?

This is way too close for comfort against what might be the worst team in the MAC.

 

We drop this game and we’re going to be punished severely come rankings time.

When the refs dictate the show...when they become the show, that’s when anything can happen. This game is exhibit #1.

88-79, fine down the stretch because we outworked them but man, that was a bad defensive game.

Agreed.

The refs showed that they can easily take over a game. that's what happens when you go 8-3 in fouls to start a game.

Are you calling for the chicken, or the egg?

Holy crap, these guys are trying to give me a heart attack... Way too close.

This was probably one of our sloppiest games of the year. The only reason we could stay ahead is because they were sloppier

Gotta win some ugly ones in the MAC but we have got to fix our defense.

Our quality depth really helped tonight.  Maybe we don't win that game last year...and definitely not two years ago.

Gotta gut out some road games like this.  We are going to take everyone's best shot.  Remember...for many MAC teams we will be the highest ranked team that has played at their gym in a long time.  Lots of excitement to try and beat the Bulls.  Remember how excited we were when we stopped Kent's streak?  Heck...fans may storm the court if they beat Buffalo at this point.  That is what UB will face in every road arena...regardless of the opposing team's record.

Gotta keep grinding...

Go Bulls.

Could not agree more.  Teams that can't run with us are going to try to make it ugly.  Plus we all know how great MAC refs are.  And just imagine when we take on Kent St.  We all know they like to play bully ball.  So it wasn't pretty, def not our best game and effort but it was a conference win on the road.  And yes our defense wasn't spectacular but in all we made enough plays to win.  Our schedule gets jammed packed for the next few weeks so our health and depth will be tested.

2 positives:  1) Free throw shooting was the difference in this game.  2) The freshman were given clutch minutes and they played well in them.  Love to see Williams attacking the rim without hesitation.  When he reacts you can see the talent.

While this wasn't a fun game to watch, I think it will be good for our team. Call me crazy but I don't want to blow every team out by 30 points. It is good to have the team experience close games throughout the year. We will learn more from games like this than blowouts, also will help us keep us on our toes.

That being said, I still would like to win big for a majority of the games.
