- Lets be honest, you've been disappointed with Greg Oden's play. He's been less future hall of famer.. and more Dikembe Mutombo on an off night..

Daily Dribble: Thoughts on Coaching Changes

March 22nd, 2007

- Getting Steve Alford (assuming it official happens) is a steal for New Mexico. His 152-106 record might not be overwhelming, but Alford brings a few things to the table that you have to love.

A) Publicity. No one particularly paid any attention to the firing of Ritchie McKay.. and except for some love for Danny Granger, no one has paid any attention to New Mexico the past few years.

Illinois State Hires Kansas Assistant Jankovich

March 20th, 2007

NORMAL, Ill. – With a coaching lineage that reads like a Who’s Who in college basketball and over two decades of success on the hardwood, Tim Jankovich (JAYNK-ah-vich) was a logical choice for Illinois State’s Director of Athletics Dr. Sheahon Zenger, and as a result, the former Kansas assistant coach was formally named the 18th head coach in Redbird men’s basketball history at a press conference Tuesday morning from Doug Collins Court in Redbird Arena. “We are excited to be hiring a coach with the experience and expertise of Tim Jankovich,” Zenger said.

- Good job by Bill Self clearing his bench in the Jayhawks easy 107-67 win over Niagara. 14 guys got in the game including little used Brennan Brechard (22 minutes in his career) who even got 4 minutes of PT. Nothing like the memory of getting a few minutes run in the Dance.

As we enter the final week of the Valley regular season, Southern Illinois controls their own destiny. The Salukis currently sit one game ahead of second place Creighton and if they can beat Indiana State and Evansville this week, which they likely will, SIU will be this year’s Missouri Valley Conference Champions.

The Jays will likely have to settle for second place but they’ll join the Salukis in the NCAA Tournament as both look to be “locks” at this point.
