Here's my two cents worth on the Hawkeyes. First, it's like everybody was afraid to shoot the ball. A good shooter wants to shoot, sometimes to the point of being a hog ball. (One of my less flattering nicknames). You can tell a team is too tenative about its outside shooting if they never get a 3 pointer blocked. I used to get my ouside shot blocked about ten percent of the time but the other half went in. (apologies to Yogi). If you're not getting any blocked it's because you're not shooting unless you're wide open. I hardly ever got an open look at the basket without somebody's hand in my face. I used to practice shooting blindfolded so that I knew I could make a shot without looking at the basket from several key points on the floor. Guys that can't shoot at all like Gesell and Clemons just shouldn't play at all. I'd rather have Jok and the turnovers 'cause he can at least shoot the ball. One big difference bween Devin Roy Marble and Greg McDermott from Creighton is that McDermott moves well w ...

Ed Cooley wins Big East amid the most emotional year of his life Cooley celebrates after Providence's Big East tourney win Saturday night at MSG. (USATSI) More: Updated bracket projection | Bubble Watch | Live Blog Updates NEW YORK -- This one was for the old Big East. In the conference's first year of rejiggering, it was league newbie Creighton, with its Player of the Year frontrunner Doug McDermott, that was most feared. The Bluejays, boasting that beautiful, efficiently fueled offense. They were expected by many to fly into Manhattan and fly back to Omaha with the league tournament title. But it was founding league member Providence that climbed a ladder, took home nets, hardware and the respect of a lot more people. "I hate to lose in a game like this, but if I have to lose, losing to someone like Ed Cooley is as good as it can possibly be," Bluejays coach Greg McDermott said. This one was for Friars fans. Providence College, which had only won one other Big East tournament over the past 34 years -- b ...

Busy week for Doug and Greg McDermott. Lots of national appearances!
As a loyal subscriber to the gleaner (35 years), I am fed up with Bob Watkins and his Tuesday column which constantly rips the University of Kentucky basketball program and John Calipari. He occasionally makes some valid points, however most of the time I feel that he is on a witch hunt and is totally out of touch with college basketball in general. This week he mentions the two premier coaches in the game, Donavan and Boeheim. Go ahead and ignore Calipari and Pitino, but shouldn't coach K or Izzo at least get mentioned? This week he evaluates Calipari minus Anthony Davis yet he praises Greg McDermott of Creighton for doing an extraordinary job! Why not evaluate Greg McDermott minus Doug McDermott? Last week he discussed the problems with Oklahoma State point guard Keith Smart!! Are there any other sports fans out there that agree with me are have you already quit reading the Gleaner years ago? For me, my subscription will be cancelled today.

UPDATE ON JAKE BURNSIDE: Jake is doing so well he was moved out of the intensive care unit and he'll be tranported to a rehabilitation center today. He used a walker yesterday to take some steps, he's been sitting up in his chair without assistance and he's been conversing with his many guests. Among those who came by to see him and a big thanks to them: Creighton's Doug and Greg McDermott. Their visit was a welcome surprise that brought a big smile to his face. Jake is in for a long haul at rehab. At this point we don't know how long he will need the rehab. The doctors, nurses and support staff at Alegent Creighton Health Creighton University Medical Center have been incredible. They did a great job handling the emotional as well as the medical aspects of his care. They were caring, showed heartfelt sincerity and understood our issues. I can understand why this is one of the best facilities in the midwest. Your continued thoughts and prayers for Jake's recovery are apppreciated. Please continue to keep t ...

Tommorow at 11:30 Josh "The Legend" Jones and Creighton head coach Greg McDermott will hold a joint press conference to provide an update on Josh's medical status. Something tells me that if everything was fine then there would be nothing to hold a press conference for...since there is news, it's likely bad news. Priority number one is Josh's health. If he can't make it back onto the court his mental health is sure to be tested as well as his heart. I have no doubt that he will be showered with support as he works his way through this, but no doubt it wont be easy. Josh has been one of my favorite players since he joined the program 5 years ago. Hard not to cheer for the local kid with the huge grin and the ability to get under Dana Altman's skin. Now in his senior season, he has been playing the best ball of his career. His 18 point 2nd half outburst to bring the Jays back against UAB last month and his defense has never been peskier. For now we can only keep our fingers crossed and hope for the be ...
