Smile Game 2 Results & YTD Standings 2012-13 MVC Regular Season Game Pick Em Contest!

Another great night of basketball in the Missouri Valley with close games everywhere (except DSM), and, 4 out of 5 road teams winning!!

BU showed great heart in earning a road win at Carbondale missing one of their key players. Everyone stepped up and had big games, NW and SS shined in their moment in the spotlight.
BU, the little engine that could...'they think they can, they think they can, they think they can...'

Here are the scores of tonight's games:

Creighton 79 .. at Illinois State 72 ...... CU 13 - 25 from beyond the arc... ISU 0-8 vs ranked teams at Redbird
Indiana State 65 .. at UNI 61 ...... Sycs win despite makin just 4-8 FT in last 34 seconds
Wichita State 75 .. at Drake 63 ...... WSU 13-1 for 2nd time since 1953-4 ('82-3 team 13-1)
Bradley 66 .. at Southern Illinois 60 ...... BU equals MVC wins in 2011-12!!
Evansville 62 .. MSU 59 OT ....... EU wins shooting only 36% from the floor

BU, CU, ISUB, and WSU all start 2-0.

I believe I should be at 8 picks correct, did my picks for week 1 still count? You gave me credit for them after the first wave of games.

SS34, you do have 8 correct picks on the season, and your picks from week 1 still count.

Correction made (stupid spreadsheet, 'SamD2' should preceed 'Serbiansniper34' alphabetically !)...

I find myself in mid season form after only two games!

Apologies from AZ BU Fan!

As dictated to me by a friend....

I normally don't give a flip about these things, but this has me on edge. My two-game results were not included in the current standings....and after I had such a good night. I can't make heads or tails about how you run this operation! I'd give 50-50 odds this will happen again. Anyway, just my two cents worth.

THE PENNY
I can understand THE PENNY's frustration. He/she had a really good night last night, picking 4 of the 5 winners.

THE PENNY
Thanks BU SW.

Tell 'small change' the next time you see him, I did add his (The PENNY's) season to date total (7 correct picks) to the original results post!

I was merely trying to protect the feelings of the 75% of the pick em participants who haven't been able to beat a coin toss through 2 games!

Thanks for noting my omission, will not happen again!

PS Very clever post!! Well done.
