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 ...

The Savior of the Spartans: Michigan State will live or die by Branden Dawson

Branden Dawson’s junior season didn’t exactly go as planned. Last season, Michigan State got off to an 18-1 start led by the experienced core of Keith Appling, Adreian Payne and Dawson. With the Spartans sitting at No. 3 in the nation, it looked like coach Tom Izzo had himself another title contender.

Bears 2014 Rookie Class Review

The Bears have 14 rookies on their roster right now. 12 of which have been on the roster for extended periods of time and have played. I know that it is early to look at the returns on a draft class, but this class has shown enough that I think it can be discussed. After so many drafts that we have preached patience, and wait 3 years, only to not have them pan out, so let’s look at a draft that appears to b ...

If you don't know who Shannon Scott is, he's that pesky, relentless defender on Ohio State that isn't Aaron Craft . Scott is entering his senior season with the Buckeyes and has already made consecutive Big Ten All-Defensive teams. With the aforementioned Craft now in the NBA, Scott finally has the chance to lead Ohio State as a starting point guard. I had the chance to sit down with the scrappy defender at ...
