Re: Galesburg Summer Basketball

This weekend, I realized something which hadn’t occurred to me watching Galesburg play. If you put small-school players and large-school players together in a skills competition-shooting, ball handling, whatever-the small-school players will perform at an even level with the bigs. The gap is obvious...

Re: Galesburg Summer Basketball

The freshman for Morton is Katie Krupa. Dowell hurt her ankle against Richwoods at the ICC league on Wednesday night. Hearing issues at an advanced age. My brain finally put together what her mother told me. I got the Bethel part from her having attended Bethel Lutheran School. Synapse deterioration.

Re: Galesburg Summer Basketball

Usually, a team which returns 3 Sr. starters and a 4th Sr. who supplied major minutes off the bench the previous year moving into the starting lineup, has areas which should be considered stable givens heading into the next season. That doesn’t appear to be necessarily so with this team. Last season...

Re: Building a Dynasty

Why would some of the best players in the country want to come out to the middle of nowhere to Storrs, Conn. to play basketball? Geno built UCONN’s program from nothing. 1971-’85, UCONN had one winning season. You figure the first time he walked into the gym, he had 2 or 3 High School All-Americans ...
