NU is up 33-26 at the half. Thomason on fire with 17 pts, Bayless has 7. Central Arky shooting a miserable 28% from the floor while NU is shooting above 50% . so far so good . Our favorite big man H. Obioha has 2 pts and 3 boards...NU is winning the battle of boards as well.

Final

I thought NU looked pretty good in the second half . It seems as Thomason goes , so does NU. He was literally on fire driving the lane etc. Thom played like a played like a First Team ALL-MAAC performer... I was impressed with Gray, Mitchell and Moore in the front court; decent D with some athleticism. I’m not sure if Ilorio was hurt late... Bayless looked solid playing the point and or off guard. NU had more energy diving for loose balls combined with smothering D etc. According to one of the announcers, C. Arky will go to the postseason. NU played hard.

I realize Central Arkansas is not a great program , but it was encouraging to see NU play much better than they did against Bucknell . Every time Central Arkansas made a run , NU was able to hold them off . Great job by Thomasson , and a nice team effort win .

Let's be positive in the Thanksgiving season; he must have been talking about our purple eagles.
Figured out there are two volume places that must be right to actually get volume on ESPN.
Dave will be proud of this old guy!
