The Peoria Journal-Star has Western as a 4-point favorite in today's game.

Bring your family to Western Hall this Saturday, and pay just $26 for four general admission tickets, four drinks, and two popcorns.

Rocky wants to see you in your favorite Hawaiian shirt.

Ben Pyle missed his first free throw of the season vs. PFW, and is currently 25-for-26 on the season.

Western is sixth in the NCAA with fewest turnovers committed (148); Alabama A&M is the category leader with 142.

After loss, Leathernecks begin prep for Denver.

Let hope we play well enough to keep the dozen from dozen off. :lol:
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

That was essentially a must win to stay out of the conference cellar for the rest of the season.....but that game should have closed out by the 10 minute mark. Everybody and their cousin knows this team can't handle any press coverage. Or even yet, possibly score some easy buckets when they put on the press. I suspect they will see even more of it going forward.
