    Adam Miller enters transfer portal

    Liberty was also a Prop 48 player, which means that he sat his freshman year because his scores weren't high enough. Even if he were unhappy with his sophomore minutes in the Final Four year, it's unlikely that he would have wanted to sit out for the second time in three years.

    Thank You

    More than one person close to me sent sheepish, "You OK?" messages after Sunday. Of course, that loss was a blow and I'm not too jazzed about watching the rest of the tournament, but this group gave us a tremendous ride. We got to celebrate a championship and for a few weeks, we were the hottest...

    This. Normally, with a win today, there would be several days of relaxation before the Sweet 16. Now, after the nerves of the game, everyday there's the worry that we're the next VCU.

    Not sure about tonight, but he only played 12 minutes in the game where they got eliminated in the ACC tournament because of defense issues.

    3/18 Games

    When he was clubbing Ayo Dosunmu and other Illini, I was informed that Mady Sissoko wasn't just some goon, but a valuable component of the Michigan State team. Where was he when that game was being thrown away?

    3/18 Games

    I almost always root for the Big Ten no matter what, but here a Michigan State loss would give Tom Izzo extra time to learn the pronunciation of Ayo Dosunmu's first name.

    Players and coaches used to amuse themselves before games by seeing how many stacked quarters you could fit between parquet squares.

    I believe Drexel's COVID cancellations were due to other schools. They were pretty frequent in the CAA.

    Pitino actually did it twice. He left the Knicks to go to Kentucky and the Celtics to go to Louisville. Though, as you said, he had worn out his welcome in Boston.

    Illinois scores top two most highly viewed games of the basketball season

    https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2021/03/illinois-michigan-ratings-espn-nba-abc-pga-tour-nhl/ Weeknight games (that was a Tuesday) don't do as well. However, it was the highest-rated weeknight non-holiday game since Duke-Sparty at the beginning of the season.

    Illinois scores top two most highly viewed games of the basketball season

    I never thought an announcer would say something on a national game that compared to when Jay Bilas shouted "Illinois showing the heart of a CHAMPION!" against Arizona in '05, but Bill Raftery's "They play with energy, excitement and JOY!" when Curbelo did the rip-away and breakaway dunk against...
