MyBB Illinois State vs. UAB - Game Thread
Illinois State is 4-0, with wins over UC Santa Barbara (181) 100-72, Drexel (61) 86-84 OT (road game), Delaware State (243) 87-48, and Fairleigh Dickinson (335) 91-58.

KenPom has Illinois State ranked 47th and UAB 141st. Creighton is ranked 24th.

KenPom has Illinois State tying for 2nd place in the MVC behind Creighton.

KenPom has Illinois State beating UAB 70-62. He only gives UAB a 21% chance of winning.

This is a huge game for UAB.

Illinois State is led by two seniors - Tyler Brown (6-4 185) and Jackie Carmichael (6-9 240). These two guys go to the free-throw line the vast majority of the time, and both shoot well over 70%. Brown takes the most 3-point shots and is hitting 41% of them, while Carmichael takes the most 2-pointers, hitting 63% of them.

We are going to have a very difficult time containing Carmichael.

The other two major contributors are Zeke Upshaw (6-6 215) and Geoffrey Allen (6-6 180). The final significant contributor is Jordan Threloff (6-10 255).

RE: Illinois State
You can't tell anything about how good they are by their previous scores.

I guess it will come down to matchups

RE: Illinois State
I think you'll see the relentless high pressured defense we saw first half at Creighton on Friday. You can blame last night's shortcomings to dead legs from Sunday's game. That and cold shooting. I expect a solid performance against this good team on a neutral court.

As Blazer fans, don't we expect this everytime?

If it is dead legs we are in trouble this weekend playing back to back.

As I said in the game thread, i think it was simply not taking your opponent seriously and looking forward to a trip to a nice locale to play BB

RE: Illinois State
They are a big, strong, athletic team. Their leading scorer is 6'9 240, and they have a 6'10 250 pound center and 6'9 230 forward that see a lot of minutes.
