MVC: Bradley-UNI pregame

By Jerry Palm - March 02, 2007

I've seen every team in the Valley now except Bradley. The Braves think that because they have a borderline top 50 RPI, they deserve consideration for the tournament, but the reality is that they have only one notable win - SIU at home. They need to make some noise in this tournament to get at-large consideration.

Northern Iowa has been one of the more disappointing teams this season. After a 4-0 start, they struggled badly despite being a pretty veteran team. I'll be behind their bench for this game, which is the first time the lower seed has sat at this end.

Panther coach Ben Jacobsen faces the sideline, so I can see his white board as he talks to his team before they take the floor. The word in big letters at the top is "TOUGH". It should be. That's been a problem. Let's see how tough they are this afternoon.
