    Thomas Bryant - Washington Wizards

    Hope he makes a full, quick recovery.
  2. Nearly a quarter of a million dollars for uniforms? For one game?

    OT - Bloomington, a city on the brink?

    Some interesting reviews for Purdy Masonry. https://www.yelp.com/biz/purdy-masonry-zionsville

    OT - Bloomington, a city on the brink?

    Wonder if those idiots have a cabin or something on the lake? Matthew Masonry is in Pittsboro -- about 20 miles west and a little north of Indy. Yet these dudes were acting as if Booker and his friends -- the "liberal f--ks" -- were invading their turf.

    I saw parts of the video of the incident on the hiking trail. I swear, at times, I thought I was watching "Deliverance." Some people are just really screwed up.

    Stew Robinson and Coach Knight

    Yes. I realize that. The story talked about a Madison Heights to IU pipeline. Held coached at Anderson High -- in the same town as Madison Heights. I heard that for some reason -- don't know if it's true or not -- that Held had a beef with Knight and didn't want kids from Anderson High to go to IU.

    The story referenced Madison Heights High School -- and how a handful of players went to IU. That school was in Anderson, where Norm Held coached for years.

    Stew Robinson and Coach Knight

    Really nice story. It referenced the Madison Heights pipeline to IU. I remember hearing that for whatever reason, Norm Held did not like Knight, and wouldn't send any kids to IU. Although I'm not sure how many kids Held coached that were major college material -- other than Troy Lewis and maybe Kojak Fuller and Andre Morgan. Don't know if that's true or not -- Held disliking Knight -- however.

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    I actually thought before he got hurt -- when he could run and move and jump freely -- that he showed some pretty nice moves around the bucket, too.

    I realize that Grand Canyon U. is a real school and plays real Division I basketball. But whenever I hear of it, I can't help but think of the Western University Dolphins -- coached by Pete Bell -- who knocked off our Hoosiers some years back, with Butch McRae, Ricky Roe and Neon Boudeaux leading the way.

    Last player is Denzel Valentine. So, this is your BTN all-decade first team: Denzel Valentine, MSU Draymond Green, MSU Evan Turner, OSU Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin Trey Burke, Michigan I think I would've replaced Turner with Sullinger, Oladipo or Winston. Not because of anything wrong with Turner's quality of play; I just think he belongs in the previous decade.

    I think he should be included in the previous decade. To me, the 2009-10 season should be the end to the decade, not the beginning. I think the decade should start with the 2010-11 season and end with the 2019-20 season.

    Watched this game, the Louisiana State game and the North Carolina game earlier during the quarantine. That was a good team that really jelled at the right time and became a great team. I think they ended the season on a 10-game winning streak -- seems to have coincided with Landon Turner really picking up his play. The run through the NCAA was really something to see -- nobody could touch us (and it helped that the regional was in Bloomington). DePaul spent much of the season ranked No. 1 and was in our region. That was the year Saint Joseph's upset them, then we crushed Saint Joe's. I really wanted to play DePaul, because I think we'd have won by 15 points.

    Ah, you are right. I missed that. Thanks.
