Steve Lavin Knows: Blogs are Watching

I was watching the Purdue/Illinois game on Saturday on ESPN with Dave O’Brien and Steve Lavin providing the commentary. Lavin was talking about UCONN and how he expects them to go on a run now that Jim Calhoun is back.

Pac-10 Should Add Utah and BYU

There’s no doubt that the Pac-10 has the talent and programs to compete with any conference in America across all sports in any given year.

K-State got up by 10 at the half and held on for the win despite struggling from the outside, going just 1-12 on three pointers. Star Jacob Pullen went 0-6 on his long distance attempts and only 2-15 overall but…Read More
