Guess how Dawson broke his hand

Believe it or not, it wasn't from punching a teammate...

Painter thinks our team is in a good place right now

While acknowledging we can't let a win camouflage our weakness, Painter sounds optimistic, "It's fun when team starts to play together more and play harder. It helps to sell your point and get them to understand what we have to hang our hat on. Our team is in a good place right now. It's what you want as a coach."

Article about nutrition & basketball

A few weeks ago Chris Kramer twitted an article about the importance of nutrition in achieving your peak performance in basketball. After yesterday’s game, I thought I would post. One of the quotes in the article had me think of AJ. The Doctor described Dwight Howard as "wearing oven mitts" on the court last year as he had difficulty handling the ball. I’m not saying AJ or anyone on the team has a bad diet. But when an all-start can improve can improve his diet to improve, I am sure it is an opportunity for us.

Applefield (OT recruit) chooses Rutgers over Purdue

Lost another "warm recruit"... We got a few other OT's still on our board, hoping for either AJ Allen or Martesse Patterson to commit soon.
