Re: Holy Utah Jazz

Another great performance from Bojan tonight. He seems to have found his groove. Royce Oneal also looking really good. I am not going to predict a title, but the Jazz are going to be a damn tough out against anyone. With the Clippers losing tonight, Jazz once again have the best record in the NBA. ...

Re: Max number of tournament teams down to 10?

Has the MWC officially banned fans from the tournament? I have not been able to fine information one way or the other. I don't think anything official has been said, but don't plan on being able to attend. Unless the MW dramatically changes course between now and then, it will only be close family ...

I actually believe that Weir is a decent coach, but he's done a poor job of building the program and has had some pretty awful luck along the way. He spent a bit too much time going after kids who had stars by their names that didn't work out elsewhere, just to discover there was a reason they didn'...
