Evansville
Dec 18 2008 - 7:00pm

Editor's Early Preview (9/15):

It would be too much to ask surprising Evansville to knock off uber-power UNC. But a good showing by the Aces would go a long way in helping the MVC salvage some respect that is otherwise lacking in 08-09. The Heels are bound to lose at some point this season (right?), but this isn't the time.

Dec 20 2008 - 2:00pm

Editor's Early Preview (12/15):

Its hard to imagine UNC losing a game before January 11th at the earliest (when they head to Wake Forest), and this game could get ugly. Valpo is just a ho-hum Horizon League that doesn't bring anything particularly exciting or interesting to the table. Another glorified practice for Roy's Heels.

Michigan State20 Random Rants, Thoughts, and Observations from the Week in College Basketball by CollegeHoops.net Editor Shawn Siegel:

1 - This has unexpectedly become a weekly thing, so except 20 more random rants every Tuesday from now on.

2 - There's another Curry on the lose. Steph's brother Seth is quietly emerging as the star of an upstart Liberty squad that is 5-1. The Flames already have a win over Virginia, and just won an OT game against a quality George Mason side. Curry is already averaging 22 ppg.. as a freshman.
