High hopes on the "look" of this team

the Daily Herald remarks on the height and athleticism of this roster. it is also mentioned that Barry Gardner and Joe Branch stopped by for practice. Joe was a good guy who went on to Rice's coaching staff and now works for the NBA, but i still laugh thinking about how he was good for one - and only one - good play per game. after a dunk or a made three-pointer, the NU home crowd used to yell at the coaching staff to take him out because they knew it was only downhill from there.

the espn/blue ribbon preview is only available to insiders but walks through the roster in great detail. i know we're all excited about these freshmen, but here is something i don't want to read about my starting center: "he has lost considerable weight since moving to America."

the late commitments of the big men have overshadowed John Shurna, who averaged 23 and 12 at Glenbard West and won the state' s large-school slam-dunk contest. it will be interesting to watch him paired up with Coble.
