News On The Horizon 12/6/2012

Miami Heat gets a lesson in respect--Miami Herald
Second-year point guard Norris Cole sat out against the Wizards with a strained groin muscle but is expected to start against New York. Reserve guard Terrel Harris, who played 12 minutes on Tuesday, is also an option but, with Chalmers out, a bulk of the team’s point-guard responsibilities will fall to James. He had 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists against the Wizards.
Outlook: … With Mario Chalmers out with an injury to his left ring finger, the Heat is expected to start Norris Cole. Cole sat out Tuesday’s loss to the Wizards with a strained groin.

And what's the downside of having depth at point guard for moments like this, when Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers are ailing?
Heat's Mario Chalmers could miss up to five games--South Florida Sun Sentinel
The injury could leave the Heat thin at point guard. Norris Cole did not play against the Wizards because of a groin strain. His status is day-to-day, but the Heat were encouraged by Cole being able to complete a workout Tuesday morning.

If Cole is unable to suit up versus the New York Knicks Thursday, the Heat will turn to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as primary ball-handlers.

Illinois-Chicago. Maybe I'm late to the party, but these guys came out of nowhere for me. They currently sit at 6-1, with their only loss coming by 7 at the Pit against New Mexico. Most recently, they knocked off Northwestern, on the road. They've still got a couple of tough test in the non-conference, but with a new look Horizon Conference, they could be the class of the league.
