"If you're born in the state of Indiana, when you come out of your mother's womb, the first thing you do is shot-fake."
(Cox) was on fire. If they had cracked an egg, they could've fried it on his backside because he was so hot. They shot incredible all night long. They just dissected us.
I don't know how active this forum is, but I have a question that I would like answered. What do the people here think will happen to the Missouri Valley if Creighton does leave for the new Catholic 7 league? Will they be able to find a team to replace them? Will they be able to survive as an upper echelon Mid-Major conference?
The will of the man has got be better than the skill. That’s the route I have to go and I’m not scared to grind it out.
8. Damian Lillard, Weber State Wildcats
A scoring point guard who is best off of ball screens, Lillard benefits from both the lack of great point guards in this year's draft and the need for a scoring PG to play right away.
25. Scott Machado, Iona Gaels
Machado is an athletic point guard who can really create in transition or off of penetration. He changes the tempo of the game quite quickly and is a better shooter and athlete than Kendall Marshall, a better shooter than Tony Wroten and far more consistent a ball handler than Marquis Teague.
Here’s what I know about the 2011-12 schedule: The Seahawks have to return games at Toledo, at Liberty and at Illinois State. They have a road game at Wake Forest. They will play at Maryland on Sun., Nov. 13. The CAA opener is at VCU on Dec. 17. They will have a home game with Campbell. No BracketBusters return game next season, they’ll play at Charleston Southern in the 2012-13 season. They will be on the road for the BracketBusters in February, however. Doesn’t look like the Seahawks will participate in an exempt tournament in 2011-12, though they’re slated to participate in the Preseason NIT in 2012-13. There are still some holes to be filled (in particular, home games). More to come.
I am appreciative of and flattered by the interest shown in me by other fine universities, but I am proud and honored to represent Harvard," said Amaker. "I look forward to continuing my efforts to teach, lead and serve at this great institution.
And UNLV was supposed to start fresh with Larry Brown? Please. Hiring Brown would've been just as silly as hiring Bob Knight -- another 70-year-old legend who reportedly was interested in the job. Brown and Knight are brilliant basketball minds, no question; if they ever hold a coaching clinic, I'd advise attending. But Brown lacks the stability to be successful at the high-major level, and Knight lacks the energy.
[Kawhi] Leonard has yet to declare for the NBA draft as an underclassman or formally hire an agent that would negate his remaining two seasons of collegiate eligibility, but [Malcolm] Thomas considers both a mere formality. "I think he’s leaving," Thomas said, "for sure."
