20-point home loss to a Missouri Valley team? Well, it's not the worst thing in the world, and Indiana State did bag a couple Red Line wins. But did it have to be such a blowout? Simply, BSU couldn't shoot anywhere on the floor, they shot sub-60 percent on free throws and despite some decent offensive rebounding they couldn't make a run.
My favorite phrase for Ball State this year will most likely be "Majok Majok double-double," and yes he had another one (15 points/12 rebounds). Jauwan Scaife had 16 points to lead the team.
This won't get any easier: the Cardinals will play Sunday evening at top-ranked Indiana.
