All-Chicago Chicago College Basketball Team

The season is over and I’ve waited quite a while to do this considering Northwestern played the final area basketball game of the season more than a week ago. Still, I wanted to take some time, decompress and then select an All-City team. One of the things I did this season when selecting the team... Read more »

Photos of Chicago College Basketball Seniors

Things have been light here over the past weekend because I was at MIT’s Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston this weekend. I have some new ideas from the conference that I’m going to use in the analysis during the off-season here, but obviously there was a lot to talk about over the weekend. I’ll... Read more »

UIC Season Epilogue

Jeremy Buttell’s presence in the paint will be missed next season at UIC. It is difficult for things to end.

Flames are searching after loss to Butler

Jimmy Collins needs to find another way for the Flames to stay in games and pull out wins down the stretch of the season. Jimmy Collins sounds like a defeated man.

Jimmy Collins knew the UIC offense didn't work

And it seems like he’s try to fix it. The Flames have struggled in Horizon League play thus far. Teams are locking down on Robo Kreps. Unless he gets to the free throw line 18 times, there’s no way he can be an effective scorer with all the attention that’s being paid to him. Originally... Read more »
