Loyola still searching for assistant

It’s been a big offseason for coaching shakeups in Chicago, and there’s still one opening – Loyola needs a third assistant. After being named to Loyola head coach Porter Moser’s staff in April, former Eastern Illinois assistant Michael Lewis resigned after less than three weeks on the job to take a position at Butler. Sounds... Read more »

Former Loyola assistant headed to MAC

I’ve mentioned the MAC/Horizon League similarities before, and now Kevin Mondro, former Loyola assistant under Jim Whitesell and associate head coach at Detroit is making the jump. Mondro was announced earlier today as an assistant at Eastern Michigan University under new head coach Rob Murphy. He’s a bit of a Horizon League success story. Mondro... Read more »

Fordham set to christen Loyola's Norville Center

Unveiled in a March 3, 2011 ribbon-cutting ceremony, Loyola’s all-new $26 million Norville Center for Intercollegiate Athletics is tentatively set to host last-place finishing A-10 team Fordham this fall.

UIC and Loyola working together for 'Weekend in Chicago'

The business side of college basketball comes starkly to life on the Basketball Travelers Schedule Board. It’s a disconcerting place where high and high-mid teams offer guarantees – money – to low and even D-II and D-III teams to fill in their non-conference schedule with single game and home/home series. DePaul, Northwestern and UIC have... Read more »

Chicago 5 - Day 5

The final day of the Chicago 5 Tournament features the game of the tournament and one final local battle.  Loyola went to the Jones Convocation Center, but Chicago State still wasn’t able to pull out it’s first victory.

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 »

Chicago 5 - Day 3

The Chicago 5’s third day of simulations brings us one game that was supposed to happen this season and didn’t plus an intriguing matchup that should happen soon.  UIC and Chicago State were originally scheduled to play in 2010-11, but when Tracy Dildy left the Flames to become the new head coach of the Cougars...

Bizoukas transferring from DePaul

When you do a great job recruiting as a new head coach there is going to be some roster attrition. Right now DePaul is going through that process. As Lindsey Willhite pointed out yesterday, the Blue Demons have to find a few more scholarships for their incoming recruits. Well, one reportedly opened up today with... Read more »

Chicago 5 - Day 1

The first two games on the series featured a couple of match ups that were actually played as DePaul takes on Chicago State and UIC and Loyola face off. The Blue Demons got to play at home again in my simulation and took home a 68-43 victory in a game that was much slower than... Read more »
