"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
After Utah Valley beat New Mexico State last night to take over control of the WAC, NMSU G K.C. Ross-Miller threw the ball at a Utah Valley player. Combined with the timing of UVU's fans storming the court, the fight between the players on the two teams escalated to also include a few UVU students. One can be seen throwing a punch at a NMSU player. Ugly scene, and it is already drawing more talk about banning storming the court. Storming the court is a part of the tradition of college (and high school) basketball, but is it so dangerous that it needs to be outlawed?
This is obviously an isolated situation, and the first time I can recall an incident of this nature occuring in college basketball. I think storming the court shouldn't be banned, and might be tough to enforce anyways. Do schools pay some sort of penalty for an incident? Would it require extra security at every game? Just doesn't seem practical to me.
Derrick Walton will be on BTN's "The Journey" Saturday night, rougly 8PM ET after the b-ball game against Minnesota, so if you're recording the game, add an hour. Repeats at 9PM and 10PM ET may be delayed by how much the game goes over 2 hrs.
There are also repeats Sunday morning at 1:30AM, 2:30AM, & 3:30AM ET which might be on time, if they cut the 11PM repeat of the game to fit the 2-hr window.

John Mellencamp?!?! Um, OK, then...
Haven't seen this posted yet. Pretty good article about the Wolverines' highest scorer over the last 9 games.
suck it Craft
Crazy win at Mackey this team is showing thier resiliance. GR3 played his best game since the road game at Wisconsin deserves a lot of credit. Hopefully this is a wake up call for the last 3 games. I recommend just skipping the first half all together. Enjoy GOBLUE!!
Big night of big ten hoops
