    Default Central Region Game Thread (12/19/16)

    How about we get more inclusive and check in with the whole region instead of just the NSIC? Never too late to start region speculating (although NWMSU is almost running away with it at this point).

    We've got some interesting matchups tonight. Winona State plays Upper Iowa for the second time in three days and Arkansas Tech playing at Missouri Southern. I'm in Joplin tonight. I might update when I can, but I'll be pretty busy during regulation.

    I don't think we've ever really limited discussion to just the NSIC. Sometimes it gets going in the pick'em chat thread, but it's not like the other two conferences aren't welcome to join in.

    Sounds like Bauman is hurt. The announcers seem to be indicating that it might be a serious injury, but I'm not sure how much they can tell from where they're sitting. As much as I'm not a WSU fan, even I'm starting to feel bad for you guys at this point as far as injuries and whatnot go. Hope it's nothing too serious for Bauman.

    Trevin Woods hit a buzzer-beating three at the end of the 1st half to give Arkansas Tech a 48-46 lead over Missouri Southern in Joplin.

    Great game if you love offense, awful game if you love defense. Arkansas Tech can't stop Missouri Southern on the offensive glass, Missouri Southern can't guard the ATU guards.

    MSU swept Waldorf. Women 82-59, men 102-57. Fuqua had 20. Didn't see Patty's name in the stats.

    It is funny how it gets down into the 40s down here and everyone complains how cold it is. Meanwhile, I'm walking around in a t-shirt and polo like it's no big deal. lol

    Bauman went to the locker room on crutches. We now basically have a rotation of six. If another big goes down I would imagine a redshirt will need to be burned.

    Winona started strong with great energy. It faded. Down three at half. Carson Parker is on fire from three with 19. Finally missed one at the end of the half. Jeffs had a bonehead technical after a block which seemed to accelerate the deaccelerstion. He was playing great before that.

    Arkansas Tech gets a big road win in Joplin, defeating Missouri Southern 103-92.

    Alex Brown blistered the nets with 32 points on 14-20 from the field and 4-8 from three. Grant Prusator scored a career-high 23 points on 7 three-pointers as well.

    By far and away the best game I've seen Tech play all year. Not bad considering they had two main rotation guys out with concussions as well.

    Upper Iowa 95 Winona 82. Strange: lose by 18 at home a couple days ago and return with a 13 point road win.

    Very impressed with the performance by the Wonder Boys tonight. Had lots of uncontested makes, but some huge buckets with almost unbelievable moves against some tight defense as well.

    Were you at the game Toucan?

    Winona cannot compete with what they have left. They have five players who are D2 worthy. Three are guards. The other two that play are also guards. Domask brings little and Wagner should be red shirting or playing down a level. It's very bleak.

    Northwest off til New Years Eve. Wonder if their freshman, 6'7" Ryan Welty is keeping his shooting arm in a sleeve between now and then? Went 9-9 from 3 on Saturday and set a MIAA record with 14 consecutive 3's made. The kid can flat out shoot the rock. Pitts has to love the addition of him to the offense.

    Bleak is a great word to describe the current situation. They have 3 1000 point scorers on the roster but can't be competive nightly in a league that is down considerably from where it usually is. The lack of up and coming players is alarming. I can never remember a WSU roster that didn't have 1 freshman or sophomore that was not a guy you could peg to carry the team for years to come. The lack of skill sets of these younger guys is terrible. Gone are the multi skilled/ multi position guys that used to be up and down the roster. I don't get it how it got to this and so quickly.

    Alex Brown was very impressive. MSSU could not guard him and he could not miss. MSSU could not keep anyone from driving to the hoop and could not cover Grant Prusator at the 3 point line. Does not bode well for when we play NWMSU in early January. Our defense will have to improve!
