NORMAL - Illinois State men's basketball coach Dan Muller said his players need to play more at ease and think more about each game and each play as it tried to end a Missouri Valley Conference-opening losing streak that has stretched to three games.
Muller said his players are felling the pressure of playing with a losing streak as they have dropped to 0-3 in MVC play, 9-6 overall.
"They want to win. They want to do what's right. They want to win for each other, but some of them are getting in their own way right now and I have to help them with that," Muller said.
The Illinois State men visit Missouri State on Tuesday night.
