UIC +140 over VALPARAISO

1:00 PM EST. No interest in Valpo as the favorite. The roster turnover is substantial, and although this is not just an island of misfit toys, a massive transition period could take a few games to get things straightened out. Valpo loss to Toledo to open the year but has the pedigree here to be overvalued to a large degree against a team with little market credibility.

Luke Yaklich took on a tall task of rebuilding a UIC program in search of an identity after failing to get *over the hump* under Steve McClain’s regime. Between COVID stoppages and recurring injuries, Yaklich was thrown the kitchen sink in his first year on the sidelines. This prevented the renowned defensive whisperer from institutionalizing the defensive habits seen in the vaunted defenses he designed at Michigan and Texas. COVID and injuries are easy pickins’ from the ‘excuse tree’, but those headwinds severely stunted the Flames’ growth in Yaklich’s debut season. Gaining significant ground in the standings will be a tall order in this particular year, but UIC could be the most improved team in the Horizon and absolutely have a great chance for a win here.
