December 5th at 1 PM (Central) at Central Michigan (Mount Pleasant, MI)

CMU is 1-6 this season:
  • Lost at Missouri, 78-68
  • Lost at DePaul, 99-66
  • Won at Eastern Illinois, 62-61
  • Good Sam Empire Classic Tournament in Las Vegas
    • Lost against #1 Gonzaga, 107-54
    • Lost against Bellarmine, 76-69
  • Lost at Kentucky, 85-57
  • Lost at Xavier, 78-45
So, they haven't had a great record, but they have mostly played against some really good teams and haven't played any home games other than an early exhibition against DIII Olivet College.
If you compare how they did at DePaul (lost by 33) vs how we did at DePaul (lost by 4), it looks like we have the advantage, but we will also be much more tired than them, having a game this afternoon, while their last game was on Wednesday.

Massey Ratings: WIU #169, CMU #317, WIU projected 65% chance of victory, with predicted score of 78-73
KenPom: WIU #183 (this rating was from before our game against UT-Martin today), CMU #322
BPI: WIU #202 (also from before today's game), CMU #302

Hey I’m just a fan, but I couldn’t be more proud of the way we have come out today after playing yesterday and then a 7 hr bus ride after the game...20 more minutes get a “W” and fly these boys home!!!

Might be a good day to get some of the young guys some playing time then almost 2 weeks off.

This game is Sybervision material.  I was a big believer in that kind of training.  Used it to come up with some personal bests in bowling.

Forgot the game was at 1.  Saw the score at half and that help take away some of the fantasy football pain today.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!
