    That holiday break being 6 weeks is just a killer. You take out the cheerleaders, dance teams and students and it just gets pretty lame in there.
    Well, at least it is conference wide so all the schools have the same issue.

    Geez oh man.
    IUP win 100 for Irish Tom.

    Looked like an awful lot of empty seats in the arena as evidenced by the pictures of the game in the local edition.

    Take the win and move along ....
    The travel calls were unreal... Just wish they would have called those both ways.

    I now see it with Vaughns... he doesn't know where to be when he is on the floor. My issue now is, why doesn't Joe get him on the floor more like he did today to work on figuring it out when there is a cushion?

    That defense is really designed to take away a 'star' player (like a Brandon Norfleet type). This version of IUP is pretty balanced although Anthony Glover is emerging as the star.

    That SRU showing was a bit rare for Mercyhurst -- giving up 77 points. Entering the game that were at 62 ppg defensively.

    I like IUP to win today but expect a good fight. Manchel has had some big wins against Joe in the past.
    If Manchel wants to take Glover out, then there is no doubt in my mind that one of the other guys are fully capable of scoring with the great open looks they will get out of that garbage defense. A guy like Cobo could thrive with all the short jumpers he could potentially get if Glover is the target. Last year, if I recall correctly, Manchel went to more man to man defense against IUP because of the spread out scoring they bring to the table. We'll soon see.

    Weather-related change.

    As for the ladies, this looks to be a very solid team. I am looking forward to seeing how they do against Edinboro and CalU.
    Looks like the IUP gals got a bit of leg up on Cal if reports of Seairra Barrett being shut down for the season are correct. Certainly bad for her and bad for Cal but good for IUP as they fight to win home court for the conference and region tourneys.

    Re: Iup basketball

    A couple thoughts on last night:

    * You could tell UPJ played a game this past weekend and IUP did not. They were very off and rusty to start that game ... not all that uncommon with the first game back from a two-week layover. IUP was down by as many as 14 in the first half.

    * UPJ is a nice team. They are far from a pushover as evidence they lost by just 4 points to Virginia State. They are very well-coached and shoot well. Depth is always the problem there. They always have a solid six guys but struggle after that point. Dale Clancy may be the best PG in the PSAC. Josh Wise is a very nice young player and freshman Drew Magestro is going to be a special one up there. Isaac Vescovi is tough.

    * IUP was its own biggest enemy last night. I lost count of careless turnovers. You'll always have turnovers but they (some much more than others) just cannot 'slow down' and eliminate these mistakes. It's the same stuff, game after game, year after year. There's so much talent on the floor that the point guard just needs to stay in control and remain calm. IUP doesn't need an Allen Iverson impression that results in 7-8 TOs a game from the PG position. I get that's a touchy subject and I think Dante is a very good player. If he'd 'slow down' and cut his TOs from 7-8 down to 2-3 he could be a great player. Almost every one of those TOs last night turned into a quick bucket for UPJ. Very few of them were forced by UPJ, either, but were rather given by out-of-control, careless play. UPJ easily got 16-20 points directly off TOs last night. This isn't an attack. The PG is going to determine what this team can accomplish this year. Junior year ... time to take (and stay in) control.

    * That was as hot as I've seen Joe in a long time during the first 20 minutes -- probably since the infamous trip to Seton Hill three years ago. He looked like he was about to explode.

    * IUP got battered on the boards last night which is very odd. UPJ is a small team. In the first half UPJ out-rebounded IUP 17 to 8. Willem isn't new to the program anymore. At his size and athletic ability it's time to get a little nasty out there on the glass. He did have four huge blocks last night. But, Willem and Cobo combined for a kind of weak 9 boards last night. With who is coming up ... not going to cut it.

    * Blake oddly only played about 15 minutes last night (with no fouls). Jalen Vaughns played his lone minute in the first half. I'll be shocked if Vaughns is here next year. He has to be beyond irritated with this 1-2 minutes per game.

    * Anthony Glover is on the very short list of best guards in the PSAC ... Ice in the veins.

    * Defensively that was two different teams last night. In the first half IUP just let UPJ launch away -- hitting 7 of 14 treys before intermission. The second half you saw more of the approach they used against Fairmont and made them work for every three and UPJ went 0-8 after the break. That was simply a change in effort and intensity.

    * That's 11 straight over neighbor UPJ.
