    He pretty much did nothing all summer because of a fractured bone in his foot. He just started practicing a week or two before the exhibition. He's still their best playmaker. He's just out of shape and the offense is moving differently.

    Second day of action sees all Big East teams winning their games. The conference is 11-0, but not everything is rainbows and sunshine.

    - Butler's McDermott scores 26, 6 rebounds. Their team was already down five men due to illness or injury, when more injuries struck when Karmar Baldwin only plays 5 minutes, left with a rib cage injury, and then Campbell Donovan leaves the game with a knee injury. They are gonna have an interesting non-con.

    - Saint John's shows their offense is working with 109 points, but is their defense? Mercer scores 79 on them. Red Storm had 31 FT attempts, which shows they are focusing on inside play. Their starters are fairly young.

    - DePaul's Charlie Moore takes charge leading all scorers with 17 pt, 6 asts. and 7-7 FT. No U of Chicago Maroon scores in double figures! (Surprised this studious school is even D1.) Freshman Romeo Weems started for DePaul and finishes with 11 pts, 5 reb. Freshman Markese Jacobs comes off the bench for 26 minutes and finishes with 16 pts. Could be a new wave in Chi Town.

    - Georgetown comes back from being down 19 pts to beat Mount St Mary's, who seemed to find the basket fairly easily in the first half. The big guy Yurtseven is going to be load to handle. 20 pts. 12 rebounds, 7-7 FT. Hoya's made their FT, 17-21.

    U Chicago is a D-III school and so DePaul's win may or may not count on various official standings. The mighty Maroons did have national championship teams in the 1900's and a Big 10 (then Western Conference) championship as late as 1924. On a couple of those early championship teams was Edwin Hubble (as in the Universe is expanding Edwin Hubble).

    The most impressive thing so far is the 31 assists on 39 made baskets by PC. Talk about unselfish, geez. That's got to be close to a All time record AND Big Nate did not play!!

    I think the Friars have the deepest roster of quality depth in conference....10 legit high D1 guys if their frosh Gantt pans out.

    Thanks for the information. I should have known that. I used to date a u of Chicago grad and she always talked about how no one there cared about sports, including the football team. :) She said they were competitive with school work.

    And our beloved Muskies look nothing like a Top 20 team either. However, after Paul, KyKy, and Daniel Ramsey return, I believe things will change for the better!
