Saturday News:

Georgetown fell to Syracuse in overtime at the Big East Tournament.

Princeton recruit Steven Cook was named Illinois Class 4A Honorable Mention All-State.

Did Kareem Maddox being named BBL Player of the Month for a second time possibly get lost in the shuffle?

If Bill Carmody is fired at Northwestern, it is unlikely he'd have to wait long for a new job. A list of theoretical replacements includes just about everyone you know.

With stats like that you wonder whether Kareem will give the NBA a try. Has any Tiger alum put up numbers as good as those overseas? I know that Mason Rocca and Judson Wallace have done well, but I don't think this well.

Rocca, Wallace and Dan Mavraides are playing in two of the top five leagues in Europe - both considered the next step down from the NBA.

I don't believe the BBL is a comparable level.

Very true.

Can't access the Carmody speculation article, but I wonder if Brian Earl is looking for a step up somewhere? He's got a lot of assets.

Somewhere deep in the recesses of my mind I recall that Maddox's mother is a British citizen and that part of his reason for playing there was that he could eventually get EU citizenship which would make him much more marketable to the bigger European leagues that have foreign player caps. Did I totally just make that up? It definitely seems like he should be playing with the big boys in Spain or Italy

Also, no more need for speculation, Carmody is out.

Daniel, you didn't make it up.

"Cairns Taipans plays in a very good league and I liked the coach a lot after spending time with him in Vegas, but I decided to go with Newcastle so that I could try to get my British citizenship. That may be possible because my mother is half-British. I also have family in England, which was a consideration. The passport was probably the biggest thing because that might help me in the long-term trying to play somewhere else.

I like the coach, the setup and the players. The BBL is probably not as strong as Australia would have been of course, but with that said it is still a good league, good competition and a chance for me to try and develop my outside game because I think I'll have some freedom to do that."
