Third annual All-Chicago College Basketball Teams

Thompson was the heart and soul of the Northwestern team that tied the school record with 20 wins and reached the quarterfinals of the NIT. He averaged 15.9 ppg and 4.3 assists per game while finishing 13th in the nation in minutes percentage. He never came off the court and he'll be super difficult for Northwestern to replace next season.
With the season complete it’s time for one of my favorite posts, the All-Chicago College Basketball teams. I’ve taken the five teams around the city and compressed them into the 10 players that stood out the most during the season.

They both have the initials C.M., but Cleveland Melvin and Carl Montgomery are very different. One is a freshman on a Big East team, the other is a senior on a Great West Conference team. Still, they share something in common besides their initials this week as both won weekly awards from their respective conferences.... Read more »

Chicago State evens up Great West record

When I talked to Chicago State’s Tracy Dildy following his team’s Great West opening loss to Utah Valley he told me two things: 1) That his team really needed a victory. 2) That they were going to do better than 2-10 record that Pomeroy projected for his team coming into conference play. Well, tonight the... Read more »
