Bradley Basketball: improved…but now comes the hard part: expectations

The Bradley Basketball (men’s team) is now 7-9 and 2-1 in Missouri Valley play.

losses: Delaware, Hofstra, George Mason, Nevada, Ball State, Texas-Arlington, Ole Miss, TCU, Wichita State. Some have been ugly.

Nevertheless, this is 2 more wins than they had ALL of last season, and within one conference win than they had all of last season.

Last season saw only 4 home wins. They’ve already matched that this year.

But now it gets hard: people are going to start EXPECTING BU home wins and sometimes dealing with expectations is tough. So I expect a few more discouraging home losses…but some “road upsets” as well.

Overall, BU is much better.

The women? They played some tough games against strong competition and that might pay dividends for the conference schedule. They FINALLY return home on Friday after next. I am looking forward to it.
