    IUP dug in. Nothing there for Mercyhurst in the last 5 minutes. They got really tough when they had to. They had to grind this one out. That wasn’t their best night.

    Armoni is really good.

    I'm impressed. At halftime I thought they were dead.

    Mercyhurst seemed to run out of gas the final 12 minutes. Odd for how much they sub.

    Whatever IUP changed defensively after the break worked wonders.

    As IUP24 said ... hard to beat them for 40 minutes. They keep coming.

    Really impressive win. Years past they don’t fight back - this years team seems to have some fight in them. Did see Greg with a cast, hopefully nothing that will keep him out too long... Several tough games ahead, hopefully this builds some confidence to carry over into the weekend.

    Malik isn’t waiting until his senior year to become the man. I expected him to progress to a solid third scoring option, not necessarily a bonafide star. 3 absolute studs, Willem a force down low, a rising freshman in Armoni and solid role players giving good minutes. This team will be tough to beat.

    I was there live. Greg Bearer is in a cast and it looks like a 3-4 week injury.

    First half it took IUP some time to get used to that triangle/2 defense. To go with it, they had good looks but just couldn't get anything to fall. Defensively they didn't guard the 3 point like usual and it killed them. #5 for Hurst looked like the old guy from the YMCA game but he sure could spot shoot (they took that away from him in the second half).

    Second half IUP tightened up the defense and shot better.

    * Losing Bearer is tough. Dancses isn't ready defensively and that showed tonight.
    * Chucky's a tweener as far as guard/forward and makes it hard to where he fits in. He played as good as he could have in his role tonight.
    * Malik can't get in foul touble without Bearer around. He got away with a trip minutes into the game tonight right in front of me. (It was dirty)
    * The team has grit and won't ever be out of a game!

    Sounds like Chucky just got a promotion. He's ready. Wherever it may be.

    If I knew my right and left. He's on the far *left.*

    Regardless, he's the glue guy and knows his role. That's a piece IUP hasn't had in a few seasons.

    Box Score gem:

    Willem 14 points (7 for 7 from field) and 10 rebounds.

    He doesn't get the pub as some of the others, but he's becoming the unsung hero of the team.

    Pretty easy to be 7 for 7 when they were all dunks and put back lay ups! hahaha

    I played baseball. We used to say on my high school team when somebody would get on with a bloop single or a bleeder that just got through the infield, “check the papers tomorrow, that’s a solid single.” Lol

    needs to work on his foul shooting though. but I agree, his play this year a big part of the success. compare this years team to the 2014/15 team with Daddy, and Hanner Hope they can keep it going.

    Valid but how many years did we wish we had that exact guy? He does some pretty remarkable stuff on put-backs ... a true garbage collector. And, he's a BIG-TIME rebounder this year.


    They only have one set play they run to him ... and everybody has seen it on film 375 times already. All great teams have a garbage man. Somebody has to clean up the mess left behind.

    Trust me, I know. I have a garbage collector on both of the teams I coach. I don't run much through the post but I get them to spots to rebound and get put backs. If they do their job, they will lead in scoring every game.

    If you're garbage collector is leading the team in points every night, perhaps you should do a few more shooting drills in practice. ; )

    Bearer may miss the rest of the regular season with a broken thumb, per the game write up in the Gazette

    Very unfortunate.

    The positive is Armoni is more than ready to play heavy minutes.

    Chucky also gets a boost and perhaps moves in to a true hybrid G/F role. This will change Marko's minutes, too. That may actually be Chucky's most valuable role.

    Bearer is a huge loss, though. Being almost mid-Jan ... probably done. Broken thumbs take time. He was great at all the stuff most don't see.

    You'd have to assume that happened in practice Monday or Tuesday so they didn't have much time to get used to the fact he wouldn't be there gameplan-wise.

    Dansecs is going to have to play some -- ready or not.

    No team goes a full season injury-free. Just gotta move on and regroup. Some more live action will help Dansecs.

    As IUPAlum said, Malik has been prone to fouling. That has to scale back.
