11/20 Big Ten Weekly Roundup

All in all, not a good week for the Big Ten. MSU goes down with the cramps and at Hawaii, Wisconsin nearly blows one to an underrated Eastern Kentucky team, and Minnesota loses Vincent Grier for a significant amount of time. Marco Killingsworth, Jamar Smith, Nate Minnoy, Sylvester Mayes, and Marcus Landry look like impact newcomers. - JW

I voted for Nate Minnoy althought I watched that Marco game and was very very impressed, lol.. Man Tucker had a big performance in that double overtime game. Was it really that tough..

Augustine is going off for 16 PPG (73.3 %) and 10.5 RPG which is good to see early on (1st game 18 pts, 14 boards :eek: ) .. Rich McBride has really stepped up his game to me though.. 13.0 PPG and 6 APG.. Solid defense..

Watch out for Jamar Smith, the kid can shoot.. but most importantly this Chester Frazier guy for Illinois that IMHO will be starting by the Big Ten season at the point for Illinois..

Anyways enough Illini rambling.. :laugh:

Wow Jonathan, I'd like to give you two thumbs up for preparing that Big Ten roundup page. That's really cool and I thank you for putting something like that up.

As for Eastern Kentucky B34C, apparently one of their guys was hitting 3 pointers from the cheap seats. They did make the tournament last year and they could be a darkhorse in this year's tournament. A win is a win though.
