Duquesne is putting together a pretty fantastic season.

Agreed. I think the Dukes will leave Chaifetz tonight with a W.

Clemson vs Duke should be a good one tonight

edit: A little too excited in saying that I hope Clemson demolishes them. Helps the RPI.

If thing’s weren’t bad enough already, SIU loses a key player…


The news just got worse for Southern Illinois coach Chris Lowery.

His young team just got even younger after senior point guard Bryan Mullins was ruled out for the rest of the season (and his career) with a stress fracture in his right foot.

Mullins has only missed two games in his career and is just the second player in Missouri Valley history with more than 500 career assists and 250 steals. He missed a pair of NIT games last season with a stress fracture in his other leg.

"He’s the best,” Lowery said of Mullins. "He’s one of those kids who overworked his body trying to get better.”

Now the Salukis will have five freshmen in the top eight players – including starters Kevin Dillard, Justin Hare. Justin Bocut will likely move into the starting lineup and Anthony Booker and Nick Evans see extensive time up front.

What’s wrong with this picture? Come on, now…They’re 21-2…

UD just keeps finding ways to win at the end. This time it was a Marcus Johnson dunk with 1.2 seconds to go off of a Chris Wright miss.

And you’re right, HP, that was a fantastic win for Coach Moss and UNC by the Sea.
