Here is a flyer for the Bradley @ Chicago St. throwback game...

I highly doubt Bradley sanctioned this. This has to be a violation right?

(Didn't get this from a source I can verify, so don't actually know if it is from Chicago St.)

As I understand it, that is legit. The game got moved from Chicago State's new arena to the old one (which from the pictures I've seen online looks like a crackerbox of a gym) in part because they were bringing back some of the old Chicago State players.

Anybody want to get a look at Kendrick Nunn? His Oakland team goes against Mich St. today at 2PM eastern on ESPNU HD. I know I'm going to take a look!

Georgetown up 10 on Syracuse early in the second half. Seems like a pretty boisterous crowd, which is always good for college basketball

Great. That final game against Rutgers on the road could be looming large again. Maybe they'll end our tourney hopes for a second year in a row.

Syracuse has cut the Georgetown lead to 2 with 90 seconds to go. Good game

Edit: and now tied at 1:00 and goes from there to OT

I can imagine MSU fans being like, "why does this guy seem so familiar...?"

NW with a very fortunate win over DePaul by 2. DePaul missed a bunch of free throws.

Who was that random guy that Brey took to secure DJax's commitment? Austin Torres?

Yeah, he cost ND the game today. Missed 2 FTs in a tie game with virtually no time remaining. And he missed them badly.

So, that scholarship really paid off.


Meanwhile, Juwan Morgan is gonna score about 50 against us.

Given that DJax led them to 2 consecutive Elite Eights that scholarship was probably the best investment Mike Brey ever made.

DePaul is Illinois-ing it.... Losing close games.

They could be good next year if they return a lot... Much like us (+ if we get a big)

Nunn and Oakland fell short but put up a good fight against MSU. Nunn may have a chance at next level and will definitely get paid, perhaps overseas.

Nunn doing well

32 points in loss. I'd say his teammate predicted to be the player of the year has some serious competition.

Torres never should have been in that position. Really questionable coaching decision by Brey.

Indiana may have turned a corner. I was more impressed by the way they played against Duke than by the win over ND, but it will help them a lot. Going to be an interesting conference season.

By early March, I certainly hope we're a very different team.

I hope we still have tournament hopes by that time.
