    • What a comeback to force OT! Kobe was huge down the stretch. Let’s see if the Wolves can complete the comeback and get the W

      • Then Kobe gets stepped into on a three and goes down.

            • What big finish by NSU, Looked like they were gonna lose, Tough way to lose for Dragons

              • What a great win for the Wolves. Down 14 with under 4 minutes left and they battled back. Busch played well at the end of regulation. Reede hit some big shots in OT. Moni was good, Belka was solid. That was a great sign for the remainder of the season.

                • I know that it’s hard to do with 22 conference games, but I would love to see something different with the travel partner games. The NSU - MSUM games are 2 of the bigger games every year and they are usually played around Thanksgiving and New Years. Both times are tough to create a good atmosphere. Last year was obviously different but playing the Dragons to end the season was a lot of fun, even with limited COVID attendance rules. It would involve some midweek games, but I think it would be cool to see.

                    For a long time, schools had more control of the travel partner games. MSU and Concordia would play late season, on a Tuesday typically to try to bunch games like the conference/NCAA tournaments. For whatever that was worth.

                      +1. Of course, for Augie the real rivalry is with USF, so I doubt they care that much where the WSC game falls in the calendar. They didn't appear to have much of a crowd yesterday, but they didn't need any help in dismantling the Wildcats.

                      Beyond that, wouldn't it make more sense to schedule the long travel games for last weekend and the next one? Classes aren't in session so if a team needs to do a ten hour bus ride at some point in the season it would be a lot easier to carve out the time in early January.

                        I’d say get those trips out of the way early when the weather is slightly more likely to be not blizzardy. If possible.

                        • Credit northern for hitting some big shots late, but that’s a game Moorhead controlled throughout and has to win. Been a bit of an encapsulation of the season. Lose focus and/or don’t make necessary adjustments at crucial points. Up 14, knowing nsu shoots threes anyway, can’t give Busch two wide open threes. Also, many games the past few years with long scoring droughts. It appears that on some of the droughts Moorhead struggles to get good looks, late in shot clock before any action, etc. Plenty to be learned for sure, but Moorhead has to use a loss like that as motivation. Last two games against UMD (last few minutes of first half) and NSU (last few minutes of game) it appears that coaches and players quick to panic in face of some adversity. Not sure why that is with veteran group. Coaches need to lead with calm through the storm. Players need to execute better.

                          I am happy that nsu scorekeepers gave Msum all their points this year, regardless of the outcomes. :)

                          • Never thought I'd see this with this team this year, but the WSC men are winless so far on the road this year: (0-5)

                              Yeah, it's a bit hard to diagnose, especially when watching on video. Mohr's injury hasn't helped of course, but he played quite a bit last night. To be honest, they haven't always looked in-sync at home either. Last year they were somehow greater than the sum of their parts. This year, well, the flow just isn't there on offense despite having pretty much the same players. It's early enough for this to get fixed though. Hopefully that happens.

                              • The Wayne offense has rarely been a thing of beauty but when you have the personnel to guard Janssen one on one most of the time it stifles a lot of what they try to do. Riemersma, Dykman, and Tiedman all had successful stints yesterday. Jordan loves to deal or initiate from the elbow but the size of Augie makes that difficult. Obviously this was greatly assisted by Eagins having an off game after he hit several big shots in the game at Wayne.

                                On the flip side I continue to have concerns about the sustainsustainability of Augie's offense given the volume of contested two pointers they attempt but they keep winning so I'll just continue to be pleasantly surprised.
