I like it, other than the part about Ben Moore being the "only non-shooter on the floor". Ben's had a few games lately where he hasn't put up a lot of points, but I think he's a good mid-range guy.

I guess he has backed off a little this year given that everyone else has been shooting so well.

Overall, I liked the article.

Great read. Nice to see the guys getting some national love in the days after the Cincy win. It's deserved.

Good article and glad our guys are getting the recognition they deserve. Jank was 9-0 last year with Brown gone and Ben is a shooter, just not beyond the arc.

Figured he would include the 2014 tourney snub, particularly the watching party.

Hell is a bit of a strong word but damn it's been frustrating.

"Wide ranging academic scandal"? Lost me a sentence or two in.
