9 points off 7 turnovers to 0 for uic a nice little edge. in the words of tr: "make those turnover hurt!"

This afternoon Oakland lost to IUPUI in overtime. So the Titans are two games ahead of the "Golden Grislies" in the HL standings.

BTW, Detroit entered today's game as the nation's #4 free throw shooting team, averaging 79.1% for the season. And this afternoon the Titans made 14 of 15 from the line. (Brad Calipari had the only miss.) On a day when the threes weren't falling for the Titans, at least they could count on the ones.

What a fun couple of games. Enthusiastic, decent sized crowds (relatively speaking), very nice ceremonies and ... victories! It seems like forever since we’ve swept a weekend. I hope some of the people who came mainly for Earl or Willie saw enough to come back. Go Titans! Let’s end the month on a high note and take care of Oakland Friday.

Frank Russell was sure trying to make the case for his at the Roundball lunch. He would be glad to volunteer his number. :)

Look at our Athletic Director show his "wild side" in the background of this video of LeGrand's winning shot.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a more intense coach than UIC's head coach. That guy was low to the floor and all over it all game long.

uic is always talented, the underachieving icon of our league. i have no idea what the reason is?

We still have a long way to go in terms of filling the arena, but Saturday was our best gate of the season. The stats for the Titans’ last three games at Calihan:

1,103 vs. Wright State
1,624 vs. IUPUI
1,866 vs. UIC

Let’s hope the upward trend continues for this Friday’s game against Oakland.

Watson was inducted in the Titan Hall of Fame in 2014. A nice summary of his accomplishments here:
