From bust to must play: Snell is finally living up to expectations

Few players in the NBA struggled more than Tony Snell to begin the season. The Bulls’ 2013 first round draft pick couldn’t even get on the court during the first couple months of the season, averaging just 9.4 minutes per game in November and then dropping to just 5.8 minutes per game in December. During that December to forget, Snell scored nine points in 69 minutes over a 12-game span. He shot a pitiful 3 ...

After sitting out season, Starks is ready to lead the Illini

Big things can come in small packages. Just ask Tracy Abrams. The fearless three-year starting point guard for the Illini has been an impact player despite his underwhelming build. Abrams, who is generously listed at 6-foot-2 (believe me, I’d be surprised if he’s even 6-foot-0), has earned the reputation of being one the better guards in the Big Ten. Just as Abrams was about to enter this season as Illinois ...
