- Indiana State's 6-1 start to the season is its best since starting the 2005-06 campaign with an 8-0 record, and have matched the 6-1 start to the 2000-01 season.
The '05-'06 start included a decent win over IU at the H.C. where Frosh Tunnel and Junior Wurtz held down IU's 6'9" horse of a 'Big', and Tyson Schnikter's last second shot beating Butler over there (only road game through that run); but, it ended with the "Play-In" Game by Valley Tournament time.
The '00-'01 Conference Play ended with an 0-5 skid from 1st to 5th Place in Valley Conference ranking; but, happily, a ferocious ride to MVC Tourney Champs and our defeating Kelvin Sampson's Oklahoma 4th ranked Team in the Dance, ensued thereafter.
Winning is an odd thing. There are no constant variables at play -- mostly random events and some luck (like Evansville kid throwing the ball away after a potentially game ending offensive rebound last year so we could be Tourney Champs).
But, Oh My !!! Isn't ANY kind of winning way more fun than consistant losing !?!?!
