10 takeaways on the brink of March Madness: What to make of Duke and Grayson Allen

The name that has come up often within the industry as a replacement for Groce is Cal coach Cuonzo Martin. He’s believed to want out of Berkeley, and could be a candidate at both Illinois and Missouri. Illini connections have explored some NBA options, most notably Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg and former Pelicans coach Monty Williams, but neither may be interested.

It sure seems like you are rooting for Archie Miller. Can't really argue with that. If he translates to P5 as well as his brother has I am all for it.

Your guy (s) may be more connected than mine but unless something has changed in the last 12 hours, there has not been one breath of anything leaking out one way or another.

As Wisch pointed out, flight from CMI to Phoenix today. I'd say that's a visit to Colangelo and we know who he might favor is this situation. Or it could be a rich guy trying to get out of the cold. Either way, flight tracking is back!

I've got it on good authority that Phil Jackson has found a way to reanimate John Wooden and they'll be co-coaches. Pete Maravich will be lead assistant, primary recruiter, and HC-in-waiting.

If I create a second account to say I've heard the same thing, is it overplayed?

Not sure if joking but TCU is Dixon's alma mater and he just started there this year. Plus he's been recruiting really well there and they've had a solid season. Hope I just didn't pick up on your sarcasm.

No, I wouldn't rather have Groce, but Dixon wouldn't be on my personal list. Not because he's a bad coach. I just don't see him as being a good fit at UI.
