Redbird Coaches Show at Pub II Tonight

March 3, 2014

NORMAL, Ill. - The Redbird Basketball Coaches Shows are on the air tonight, live from the Pub II in Normal, Ill. Fans can listen live on, as Barb Smith and Dan Muller preview the final regular season games for the women's team, while the men's team is getting ready for Arch Madness.

The Barb Smith Show, hosted by Zach Dietmeier, starts out the night at 6 p.m. Coach Smith will be joined by senior Alison Seberger. ISU defeated Loyola, 69-61, in its home finale of the regular season. On Thursday, the Redbirds fell to Bradley, 59-58. Illinois State will return to the road for its final two games of the regular season, as it takes on Northern Iowa (Thursday) and Drake (Saturday). Seberger pulled down six rebounds against the Braves and the Ramblers over the weekend. The senior guard averages 2.8 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game during the Valley season. Seberger is shooting 33 percent from the field, and has dished out nine assists.

The Dan Muller Show follows at 7 p.m., hosted by Dick Luedke and Mike Matthews. Coach Muller will be joined by junior Daishon Knight. The Redbirds fell to Southern Illinois by one, 66-65, Saturday in Carbondale, Ill., after topping Indiana State, 77-59, earlier in the week. The men will take on Missouri State Friday at 2:35 p.m., at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. ISU and MSU split the season series, as the Redbirds were victorious most recently. Knight, a four-time Valley Newcomer of the Week honoree, leads the Redbirds with 13.4 points per game and has connected on 38 percent of his shot attempts from the field. Knight pulls down 4.5 rebounds per game, which also leads the team.
