No starter played more than 14 minutes in a completely one-sided 97-44 affair. Kellen Morgan led the Bisons with 16 points, but let’s face it, the team could basically score at will in this game. There was no reason to throw up 28 threes (only hitting nine of them), so I’m not even sure this should be considered a good game. It was nice to get some playing time for the reserves, I guess.
Here are the keys:
|Eff||60.8||131.7||-70.9||Actual net efficiency|
|-74.5||Predicted net efficiency|
And the individual stats:
The Bisons travel to Florence to face North Alabama tomorrow night, and something tells me they’ll get a little more of a challenge out of the Lions. Nothing to see here, move along.

Not sure playing the church league teams is helpful, especially if you do not use it as an opportunity to polish weak spots.
Seems like there are enough decent teams aound: Hendrix, Lyon, John Brown, Ozarks and several in South Missouri and Memphis to make out a decent schedule without having to play the weak sisters of mercy 🙂
Yeah, I don’t really see the purpose, either. I guess they have a hard enough time finding opponents, so we’re probably just doing it as a favor to the new kids on the block.
It seems like we should be trying to get as many D-II South Region opponents as possible each year for our non-conference schedule, since a good record against those teams is what gets a team into the NCAA Tournament. That would include the Sunshine State Conference, the SIAC, and a few independents, along with the GSC East. At most, we’re playing 4 games a year against these teams, so scheduling more of them could help tremendously (as long as we can win). Maybe we’ve already been pursuing this and can’t get any more of these teams, but it’s something to consider.
