Holy shit folks. I’m absolutely dumbfounded. Elation, shock, happiness. Ethan Happ just ended the game against Northwestern with 13 points, 12 boards, and 11 assists which accounts for his 2nd triple-double this season.

Wooden Award Top 20: Part 1

This is my favorite time of the year. We just had the Super Bowl signifying the end of football, which is sad. Football was my first love, BUT the Super Bowl means that we have about a month and a half of college basketball left. We just get to watch a bunch of fantastic conference […]
