UIC, Loyola competing with DePaul for offseason attention

When DePaul announced in early May that they’d be making the most of their long offseason with a 10-day trip to France beginning August 11, the Blue Demons set the bar very high for offseason media attention. All NCAA D-I teams are allowed one overseas trip every four years – another silly NCAA rule –... Read more »

Chicago 5 - Day 4

Day four of the Chicago 5 features a reversal of a game that was played during the 2010-11 season and a low-scoring, grind-it-out affair that just didn’t capitalize on its upset potential. Howard Moore managed to baffle Big Ten foe Illinois when UIC played the Illini at the United Center this season. He did the... Read more »

Season Recap: UIC

This is the second of five season recaps that will appear this week. There will be one each day in reverse order of current KenPom ranking. After UIC finally escaped the Jimmy Collins era in August of 2010, Howard Moore brought a new style of basketball and promise to the Flames. Unfortunately he didn’t bring... Read more »

UIC's big men, their roles and their numbers

There has been some controversy lately about who should be starting and playing significant minutes at the primary front court positions at UIC lately. There seem to be four bodies for two spots on a regular basis, though that could be dropping down to one shortly. Which players give the Flames the best chance on... Read more »

Guard-heavy UIC piles on stats en route to first Horizon League win

Howard Moore had a curveball waiting for Youngstown State, a conference one-win team that beat UIC on the road in December, Saturday: a fast, guard-heavy rotation that featured Corey Gray at the point guard spot absolving Robo Kreps of his leash and sending hot-shooting Dipanjot Singh to the perimeter. Many expected the Flames to take... Read more »

UIC's losing streak reveals a lot of problems

UIC is in the midst of an eight-game losing streak. The Flames are now 0-8 in Horizon League play, though one of those was before this recent problem, and things don’t look to be getting any better any time soon.  What’s been the problem? Well, I have a couple theories. I’ve split this up into... Read more »

Howard Moore's homecoming in Wisconsin

You’ll notice that there’s a new voice writing sometimes about UIC Flames basketball for Chicago College Basketball over the next few months. Chris Burrows has been writing over at Fanning the Flames since November, and has been covering UIC from well before that for the Chicago Flame and other outlets. I’m excited to have him...

UIC getting closer to first Horizon League win

An odd game at the UIC Pavilion ended with a familiar refrain as the UIC Flames dropped a close game, 72-69, to the Detroit Titans on Saturday. The loss drops UIC to 0-5 in the Horizon League and lifts Detroit to 4-1 in league play and into a tie for first in the conference. The... Read more »

The 1-3-1 against Illinois

Yesterday UIC played the 1-3-1 to disrupt Illinois’ offensive flow. It really seemed to work as the Flames held the Illini to 54 points in 65 possessions. That’s 0.83 points per possession and by far the best anyone has done against Demetri McCamey and company all season. It was very interesting what UIC head coach... Read more »

The Horizon League's coming out party

The Horizon League has been one of the better one or two bid leagues in the country for a while now and the coaches continually note the lack of respect it gets from around the country. If the conference has a few more days like Saturday that’s all going to change.  The league went 6-2... Read more »
