Big Wave Coming Towards the MVC?

The Jays hammered Drake tonight in front of a record crowd of over 16,000. Anthony Tolliver was a BEAST with 5 blocks and 6 assists! Oh and 18 points and 6 rebounds too. Nick Bahe hit 5 3's off the bench. Nick Porter was solid again. Nate Funk and Dane Watts played great as well. A 23 point beat down was the result after the Jays shot a record 66% FOR THE GAME! Still undefeated at home this year.

They shared the basketball wonderfully tonight and again looked like a team really starting to gell. Great ball movement all night...how about this stat: 25 assists on 29 made baskets!

Now onto UNI and Wichita...Jays are tied for first place in the Valley and it's on the line Friday night. UNI lost tonight to Valley winless Ill. St. in OT. They are going to be pissed. It's a big opportunity to pick up another road win and send another message.

We'll see what happens but after the loss to Indiana St. I called this stretch the most important of the year - and I still feel that way.
