  1. Couldn’t help but notice that the ‘Best Win’ for PSU was ranked KenPom #98 and the ‘Worst Loss’ for IU was ranked KenPom #99.

  2. Lot of hi-tech on HSR these days…..With all that tech and video doctoring skills(including green screen effects of Jeremy reading “Knight Before Christmas” in a created Currier and Ives scene), one would think there could be flashing/highlighted times and dates for upcoming Hoosier games somewhere on the HSR header…?

    Long ago, Hoosier Scoop could accomplish such little conveniences….There was once a tiny box at the top of the page showing upcoming games and the results of the last few contests played(football and basketball). Oh, the little joys…..Such are the simple things that keep fans abreast and at rest. But who dare cares of such petty concerns when HSR’s main focus is turning sports journalists into “Best Comedy Performance in a Blog Video Short” to receive their next Golden Globe…..?

  3. Coming out party for MSU’s freshman big, Nick Ward, tonight…He is going to be very tough… very soon. Great natural skills/footwork around the bucket.
