I was gonna go all Derrick Rose on you guys and sit out with hurt feelings. But you guys made me man up.
Due to overwhelming response from remaining followers, changed mind. You guys are something else.
Maine had no media other than radio crew. Coach Bob Walsh came in, made statement and there were no questions. Other coaches wish for that.
Insider column upcoming. In short: Outstanding a performance against an opponent that was really struggling.
GSU has not been good today. Ellison has played scared. But haven't seen home reffing like this in years.
That should read five starters, plus two freshmen and Etherington on the rotation.
Looks like Holtmann has settled on an 8-man rotation for now: five freshmen Wideman and Martin and IU transfer Etherington.
Maine has seven foreign born players: 3 from Canada, 2 from Serbia, 1 each from Serbia and Nigeria.
I'm in a particularly good mood today. Listened to Prince's "Purple Rain" on the drive over to Hinkle. A great American album.
Maine has been quite a hockey power over the years. Hoops, not so much. No NCAA tourney appearances. Went 6-23 last season. Has new coach.
Wish the Ohio State-Minnesota game was closer. The conditions are awesome. Loving the snow.
I'm not talking about recruits to Big Ten schools. IUPUI's facilities were embarrassing even in own league.
(My first basket was a turnaround jumper in the lane playing for Lincoln Junior High's 7th grade team, against Deaf School.)
Do you remember the 1st basket you scored in a "real" basketball game? Gary Harris will. So do some Pacers. Will write about it tonight.
Indiana State's Khristian Smith (Pike) finishes with 27 points, nine rebounds. Purdue and Indiana probably like to re-recruit him.
Barksdale makes the first. Indiana State calls timeout. Terrific ending at the Coliseum.
IUPUI's Marcellus Barksdale going to line with 0.3 seconds left, Jags trailed 64-62.
More Miles on calf strain: "...It’s just as a point where if I had kept going, it would’ve got to that point.”
Miles: “I’m not looking at it like I’m going to be out 2 to 3 wks. I don’t feel anything like that...
Miles said the right calf strain is the same injury he had during preseason. This time, he doesn't feel it is as bad as it once was.
Miles on his slump & injuries: "I don’t know how 2 put it but it’s tough rt now. It’s probably the toughest since I’ve been in the league."
CJ Miles, usually the most affable guy u'll meet in an NBA locker rm or anywhere else, was the most down I've seen him since he's been here
Former Pike standout Kristian Smith having a really good second half. Scored game's last six points to give Indiana State a 53-49 lead.
Vogel: "It should hurt, we should be angry" for tomorrow.
