Bad news. BOTH games against WVU are on ESPN+. Kansas St is the other.

Good taking care of business home win.

Crowd appeared okay. Not what it should've been for the number 2 team in the country, but at least not embarrassing,

ISU fans mocking our home court advantage. Was it really this bad or did he take this shot before the game or at halftime?

He's like a combo of LaceDarius Dunn's outside shooting combined with Pierre Jackson's dribbling, body control and smooth moves to the bucket.

He takes the pic into the end above the tunnels, which are always the last tickets sold.

He should have turned around and taken a pic. BU always gives the visitors the 6 rows of court side seats directly behind the visitors bench. They are almost always full, even when playing a minor SWAC team.

Tonight IowaSt has 3 of the 6 rows completely empty.

What makes even less sense is both of our games with WVU are scheduled for "Big 12 Now / ESPN+" and there's a good chance that one or both of those games could be huge.

There is a decent chance that both Baylor and West Virginia could be top 10 teams when they play. Only a complete moron would want that game on a back-ass program.

It's only $5/month. Cancel it when season is over. Picture is top quality. Am sure you know this.

I've bragged about the surprising pic quality all year. I signed up when the first non-conference football game was assigned to ESPN+.

My problem is that ESPN+ does not allow for highlights to be used by other sports media, such as CBS. A top 5 team should get broad national attention in all of its games. There's a reason none of Duke's games are limited to ESPN+
