    Why is Edwardsville playing a team from Chicago in the quarterfinals? They have to be 5 hours apart, right?

    Illinois breaks all schools down to 4 classes. Then the quarterfinals (called super sectionals in Illinois) are hosted at big sites. This one was played in Normal (at Illinois State University). Because of makeup of the state, 3 of the 4 quarterfinals are played in Chicago suburb area. One is played downstate. Simeon got put in this one and Whitney Young got put in a different one. Those two could (should) meet for state title game Saturday.

    Leitao & Thad both watched, Cuonzo supposedly interested as well for Mizzou.

    Absolutely no shame in losing to Simeon. I was a senior at a Chicago public league HS (Lane Tech) in 1984 when Ben Wilson was killed and it rocked the entire city. Teams like King, Simeon, Farragut were legendary. They were all in the old Red South and Red West Divisions (Red was a higher level of competition in the Chicago Public League than Blue). When my high school (which was in the old Blue North) would play any Red division team in basketball, it was absolute devastation (and that was before the 3 pt shot). Those were the days....

    Go Dawgs!

    You can read that multiple ways though.

    I've heard BU is still very much in the game.

    I can guarantee if he still talks with Groce that Butler is likely getting plenty of positive comments.

    Can't imagine Groce is taking any phone calls from him.

    Can you elaborate?
    Hopefully making the Sweet16 has helped our chances. But still, I'm not holding my breath.

    My response to the tweet is BU is and will continue to be a special place with or without Mark Smith.

    It will be interesting to see how the hiring of Brad Underwood at Illinois affects the recruitment of Mark Smith and Tim Finke.

    From a Big 10 assistant coach. I agree with those that think it unlikely, but it's not over.

    He's going to a school that has a history of players going to the NBA after one or two years because that's his intention. No, I don't know him, but that's a pretty good guess. And I don't blame him.

    That's not us. Maybe down the road, maybe never, but certainly not now. I don't fault the coaching staff for pursuing him, but he's not coming here.
