News On The Horizon 12/17/2009

ATB--Rush The Court

# Illinois-Chicago 63, Oregon State 61. Right. Another Pac-10 loss to a mid-major, this time to a team that came into the game with one win on the season. One win against NAIA school Illinois-Springfield (the Prairie Stars). That’s right — we’re not making this up. UIC wasn’t good enough to defeat Central Michigan, Southern Illinois, Illinois State, DePaul, Milwaukee or Green Bay, but by golly, they can take down Oregon State. Robo Kreps led the way with 19 pts.
# Mississippi State 80, Wright State 69. In a bit of a trap game after a big win over UCLA on Saturday, the Bulldogs survived an onslaught of threes (14) but not much else (9 two-pointers) from WSU to hand on in this one. Jarvis Varnado had his typical well-rounded game, going for 17/8/6 blks with no misses from the field this evening (6-6 FG). Barry Stewart added 21 points and Ravern Johnson had 13/5 as the Dogs shot a blistering 63% for the game.

Dear Anonymous,

I don't write much of anything on this particular blog. I link to articles and occasionally excerpt from them if the entire article is not Horizon League related.

Occasionally, I do write for this blog, but haven't done so yet this season.

I debated publishing your comment, but finally decided that maybe I need to clarify what this blog is for, since apparently there's at least one person who thinks I create all the content on this blog. This is mostly a links blog.
