    Good week for NW men's baskeball. Gotta learn to finish though. Gave up big 2nd half lead today and gave up 2 digit lead against Metro St. in 2nd half.

    NW has a lot of things to clean up as they head into conference play. Can't be too disappointed with 6-0 start though. Probably more battle tested this year heading into league play than they have been in years.

    I haven't paid close attention to the MIAA this year beyond the handful of MIAA/NSIC crossover games that have been played... does the MIAA have any teams that might legitimately challenge or threaten NWMSU for conference supremacy (or even an occasional loss or two), or does it seem like NWMSU is pretty much head and shoulders above the rest of the league from what has been shown so far?

    On an unrelated note, CJ Carr at Missouri Southern is incredible. Looking at the MIAA league stats, Carr is the third-leading scorer (24.4 ppg), leader in assists (6.2 apg) and leader in steals (3.3 spg). I'm guessing Pitts is still the leading MVP candidate, as he's the best player on a team that will most likely win the conference championship, but Carr is doing some ridiculous things for the Lions so far. That being said, it's early. Maybe teams will be more prepared for Carr as conference play rolls around.

    Like I said after watching him play 2 games at SCSU, he is really, really good. It would be very well worth the price of admission to watch him and Pitts square off against each other.

    Carr has came back down to earth with scoring in the teens, and usually because of taking plenty of shots.

    When you score 47 in the second game of the season, it helps that average for a while.

    Still though, to be capable of a 47 point performance is pretty impressive.

    Carr and MSSU were definitely in a slump last week at Drury. Will be interesting to see how they respond as they begin conference play on Thursday. I do think it will be very entertaining when Carr and Pitts matches up in January.

    I doubt Pitts defends Carr when they play. Ben likes putting bigger defenders on good a PG. I can see NDow on him. Carr may get his, but others on southern will have to play well to beat NW on an average night.

    Southern will struggle with NW (just like everyone else). We don't match up well with all the 6'5 to 6'8 guys on NW. We live or die by the 3 right now. Last week, we died by the 3.
