Magic 8 Ball says this one may be too ugly to watch.

3. SMU Mustangs at Evansville Purple Aces (Monday, 7 p.m. ET)
The Purple Aces were picked eighth in the MVC preseason coaches' poll and have one senior on their roster. That didn't matter last week in Lexington, though, as Evansville stunned the college hoops world by knocking off then-No. 1 Kentucky.

So what do the Purple Aces do for a follow-up? They face another tall task -- this time in their own building -- against SMU. DeAndre Williams and Kansas transfer Sam Cunliffe will look to maintain their offense production, but the key to this game will be on the glass.

The Mustangs are a physical rebounding team (41 per game) with four players averaging six or more boards, including Feron Hunt's 11 per outing. The Purple Aces don't have a player who stands over 6-foot-9, but that didn't seem to stop them against Kentucky's long, athletic frontcourt.

Evansville 2.5 pt favorites at home according to Yahoo

Statistically we look fairly even. They have a better % from 3, so I'm sure they'll be raining 3's.

Yep, key to this game will be our perimeter defense.

Their strength of schedule is a bit better too - should be interesting tonight!

So the Purple Aces beat #1 Kentucky. If we beat their Purple Aces, does that land us at least in the Top 25? (wishful thinking)

Owning the boards in 1st half but otherwise shooting poorly and turning it over way too much
