A lot of ink's been spilled about the Valley in the past month or so: Indiana State's 8-0 start, Northern Iowa and Mo-State and Creighton and
five bids and blabbity-blabbity. But what about the mid-pack squads that will provide the league its RPI strength and crouch in the shadows come Arch Madness, ready to spill some metaphorical basketball blood? We've got two of those teams squaring off today in Salukiville.
Bradley's 2-2 MVC start has featured two impressive wins (1
) and a pair of two-point losses at Wichita and Drake. Kong/Hulk Patrick O'Bryant's
return has had a lot to do with their good play, but their main problem has been winning on the road. Difficult place to get off the schneid, Carbondale -- the seeming NCAA perennial Salukis, currently moving away from a dark cloud
, have won 29 straight home games. Can't throw out the record book for this one, because it's important.
