22.Dec.2010 Basketball: Illinois-Chicago @ Oregon State
Doh. I was on the road all day, and completely forgot there was a game tonight. Does anyone really care? Meh. Win some games Beavs, then we'll pay attention. For the die-hards who want to complain about the team, by all means go ahead. One thing worth noting is tonight is the last game before conference play. Might be worth checking out for that reason alone.
Here's the scouting report on tonight's opponent.
Illinois-Chicago enters the game with a 5-7 record after upsetting No. 12 Illinois, 57-54, at the United Center on Dec. 18. Senior guard Robo Kreps had 15 points as the Flames built an early lead then erased a late-game deficit for the upset. Illinois-Chicago has wins over Roosevelt, Rhode Island and two against Toledo. First-year head coach Howard Moore runs a version of the Wisconsin "swing" offense and an aggressive man-to-man defense. Kreps leads the team with 15.4 points per game and has 43 assists in his first full season running the point. Senior forward Paul Carter is averaging 14.3 points and a team-high 7.9 rebounds per game. Junior guard Zavion Neely (9.8 ppg), junior forward Paris Carter (4.6 ppg) and junior center Darrin Williams (6.3 ppg) are the other projected starters.
