  • Next Up: at Drake

    The Panthers haven’t won a true road game in 363 days (0-9).

    The senior class of Reed Timmer, now Drake’s all-time leading scorer, has yet to beat the Panthers (0-7).

    One of those streaks will come to an end. Hopefully a nice contingent of UNI fans will make the Knapp Center feel more like home.

    It will be interesting to see which Panther team shows up defensively. Drake has some guys who can hit threes if left open.

      We probably need this game for any chance of avoiding Thursday in St Louis. Probably need to win 4 of the remaining 5 (even that might not be enough) and that would be tough to do if we lose the first considering the lack of consistency we've shown.

        I mean, there is a chance this team can still get to 20 wins on the season....

          For those going,consider the pregame at Saints.

            At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up winning by 15 points or losing by 15 points, and I think the chances between either outcome are pretty equal.

              Pretty much have to win out to avoid Thursday. The Indiana State sweep is a killer in just about any tiebreaker.

              Drake is certainly fading. Missouri State is either a Sweet 16 team or a SWAC team and there's nothing in between. We just don't have any control over what happens.

                This is accurate. As we currently sit, I have us at about 93% chance of a Thursday game, and definitely are not in charge of our own destiny. With a 5-0 finish, the odds of Thursday drop to 16%, but even a 4-1 finish puts us at an 86% chance of Thursday. 3-2 or worse and you may as well pencil in some Thursday evening viewing time already.

                In isolation, with a win today our Thursday odds move to 88%, but with a loss we are nearly locked in at 99.6%.

                    Mccloud needs to learn how to play when he hits a couple of shots.

                      Shooting a gentlemen's 20% from 3, while taking over 60% of our shots from that range I see. Classic.

                        On the rare occasion that we do make a 3, we have a nasty tendency to just give it right the heck back immediately. And then usually immediately give up another one for good measure.

                          Lol at the ending to that half. Actually had it tied with 90 seconds to go. Found a way to be down 7 at the half.

                            I feel like the last 10 minutes was about our season in a microcosm. We slowly, methodically outplay our opponent for stretches only to completely fall apart for 90 seconds as we do nothing but chuck up 3s.

                              Don't forget the part where we give up open ones on the other end.
