GB pulls away late and gets the win. Big games from Davis, Ansong, and Pipes.

The Nix with just three turnovers for the entire game. I think that might be a record for Green Bay. Ansong came into his own with a double, double -- 19 points and ten boards. The combination of Davis and Ansong next season should be special. Kellogg also showing some post moves tonight.

Bend but don't break. When GB went up 11 early in the second half they were playing so well I thought I 20 point win was possible. However, UIC had other plans and regained the lead. GB didn't shoot great but made the plays when they needed to.
They didn't let UIC turn them over and get easy buckets. They did a good job of getting on the glass, in fact being in position caused Bridges to take himself out of the game with over the back fouls. That helped GB a lot because they didn't have much of an answer for him on the block.
PJ Pipes did not want to let the team lose. The 4 point play and the late runner were big time shots. Foul trouble was the only thing that could stop him because he was money before those plays.
If Kellogg can get to 215+ pounds by November he can be a real force for GB. He has nice touch around the hoop and he makes lots of hustle plays. He just gets bullied a bit by bigger guys.
Ansong on the offensive glass must just be an unstoppable force for opponents. They know he is going to do it and yet they can't stop it. It's unreal to watch. He is great as undersized 4, he is filling Tank's shoes nicely. If he gets his perimeter skills developed further he could be a beast as a 3 man in this league.
I am happy they won and by double digits no less, that gives a little momentum for Thursday against team that is good overall matchup for GB.
