    Northern Kentucky 86 Morehead State 49

    Think NKU pulled away with some great shooting in the 2nd half.

    Drew McDonald scored his 1,000th point in his career. Only the 2nd player in NKU's D-I history

    Drew took over the game with 3 point shooting in 2nd half and then Carson Williams, who was scoreless thru the first 28 minutes, went off and scored 13 in about a 4 minute span and was unstoppable inside.

    Seemed like a decent size crowd. Good student section.

    Hoping for something similar on Dec. 10th va. EKU.

    Morehead has no offense. It seems as if they have no set plays or NKU's defense took them out of their offense. Even when Morehead got off some decent shots, they missed. Morehead's free throw and 3-point shooting is lacking as well. It may be a long cold winter for Eagle basketball.

    I would like to add that NKU play a very game.

    McDonald gets 1,000th career point. He and his mother, a great NKU women's basketball player years ago, both reached 1,000 points. Norse blister nets in second half. See story.
    McDonald joins 1,-point club, NKU sprints past in-state rival Morehead State, 86-49, at BB&T Arena | NKyTribune

    That should be "played a very good game."

    I would think if a lot of people were honest with themselves they never imagined a career like this for Drew. There were many doubters about his skills when he was at NCC. Congratulations Drew for proving them wrong.

    And I wouldn't be one of them...

    Even as a high school freshman I saw that this young man was a special player, and had a strong hunch that he'd have a promising future.

    I've owned it before on this site and I'll do it again. Never thought he'd be this good on the D-I level.

    I would agree. Seemed slow not super athletic; however can’t measure heart and the passion. He seems to be having fun and working his craft. Congrats to Drew and that accomplishment!!!

    Never doubted his skills, but did question whether he would make the committment to excellence. He has made himself a different physical speciman since his freshman year. Obviously he has bought into Coach Brannen's progrm on and off the court. Exciting to see Drew succeed and NKU with him.

    Nice to see people step up and admit they were skeptical of his skills.

    It was nice to see NKU on a local TV station. Great crowd too. Over 4000.

    That would be a great crowd for a high school game but that is a horrible crowd for a D1 College Basketball game.

    You don't follow college basketball very closely do you?
