    I don't know if this has been posted, but Illionois' game against Tennessee-Martin has been canceled because of positive test on Tennessee-Martin's team. I just saw it on local sports.

    The local library had a used book sale today. People had to register for a time slot. I had a slot. I ended up being 20 hardcovers for 20 dollars. Not bad.

    One of my favorite things about this game was watching Race mentor Landor on the floor. Landor looked frustrated a couple of times, and Race was right there to diffuse and coach him.  Great leadership

    As some of you know, I had a pretty wicked run-in with Covid in early March. I'm still dealing with (unfortunately) a lot of long term issues with it, including my immune system being weaker. Yesterday, my new GM called me to let me know his daughter has tested positive for Covid- I've been in close contact w him for the last 2 weeks. The jury is out on immunity length, and it's been 9 months for me. Currently quarantining and taking as many precautions as I can.

    Hope everyone is doing well during Covid and staying safe! Prayers to those who are affected or have family or friends who have been.
     
    Also, I’m hoping to hear back today or early next week on a new job (99% confident I have it based on conversations with management after interviews when they called me). Been praying for awhile to help me find a new job. I’ve been in banking for almost 10 years, and my boss for the last 1.8 years has been a nightmare. Rules strictly by fear and nothing is ever good enough. While I’m currently a branch manager, the new job is the same but more responsibility as I will be tasked to grow a brand new branch for a new bank in the area. I’m so excited and nervous, but keep praying I get it.

    Apparently Archie kept asking Armaan if he needed to come out of the game for a blow, and Armaan wasn't having any of it. I saw Armaan interviewed post-game; the young man is turning into a grown man. He was asked whether it was a problem or if he had some special strategy in guarding the 6'8" Ziaire Williams. To paraphrase Armaan's answer? It's basketball, I did what I needed to do to keep him from scoring. That's what I'm here for.

    Greenville is a small Christian College about 45 minutes East of St Louis along I70. I live another 30-45 minutes East from there. They play the Grinnell(?) system. Jack up as many shots as you can. Someone scored about that many last week against them. I have a relative who is a Doctor in Greenville. I also have 2 relatives playing sports there.

    Might have to after this Christmas.  Those damn Barbies seem to be getting more expensive with each kid.  Damn autocorrect before.  The youngest stole my tv not sold it.  Dad would probably have a minor stroke.

    Great bounce back. Like others said, that's 2 neutral court wins over tournament/in the conversation of tournament teams at minimum. Can't take those lightly.
    There are still plenty of concerns, obviously. But seeing what UT is doing to UNC right now, I'm feeling a bit better.
    I think it's also important to remember how bad say OG and Juwan were their first few games as freshmen. Not saying their potential is as high as those guys, but if Lander and Trey can make the kind of jump those two did by the end of their freshman seasons – we might have something here.

    Another quality win versus a tournament quality team or at least a team that will be in the conversation.  This win came without your 2 seniors.   2-1 trip playing nothing but teams that will be considered for the tournament shouldn’t be overlooked.   Bad games happen and they most definitely had one yesterday and came back today and scored over 70 points.  College basketball is a crazy sport to figure out sometimes.   They have a good enough defense that if they ever get a consistent shooter they will be a tough out come tournament time.   Not going to make everyone happy but that’s life

    This is a type of loss that will be a missed opportunity for a resume building win for March.   Definitely nothing that will hurt the resume.  The damage is all in the optics of how they were beaten.   I haven’t had the pleasure to watch the game yet and yes I will still watch but one bad showing against a tournament quality team on a neutral court isn’t going to ruin the season.   It’s unfortunate they couldn’t string a couple of good games together.  Tomorrow is a new day and they will have a chance to go 2-1 in this tournament and get 2 quality wins or they can lose and will have to regroup next week
