1st time really seeing WIU play this year and I haven't seen the whole game, but from what I've seen, WIU doesn't even try to get an offensive rebound. They just stand there or run back down the court. Currently down 6 in the 2nd half.

We have not O-rebounded for the last decade. Both MO and Billy used the packline defense. First rule of the packline is to deny the the fast break. Hence everyone heads back on the shot.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Nice comeback. Can we have a good last 5 minutes in a close game?

We get the 65-59 win. Nice effort down the stretch. Something to build on going into 2nd half of season.

Not sure how they did it, but a big road win foe the Necks. I didn't understand why at the end they still have Gilbeck in when they were fouling since he isn't a great free throw shooter. Most teams do the offense/defense things with player subs.

The girl doing the color on the broadcast was a stunner...wow!

I have never seen a road team get so many individual interviews by the opposing teams television crew. It was nice to see.

That is what i figured, they are trying to stop the fast break, but man is it frustrating to watch.
