Look who is finally using Twitter! 

Cody McKinney is indeed the grandson of Coach McKinney and he will indeed play in the house that Lee McKinney built.  Very cool.

In terms of the recruiting class, Malachy Simpson may be almost as big of a story.  10 points and 7 rebounds per game on a Jay Blossom coached Webster Groves team.

So it's been on my mind for awhile... I really think Fontbonne is getting some great talent, but injuries have  impacted them... if they can stay healthy, they should win... period.... if they don't win, well, a change needs to be made... changes don't happen often in the SLIAC, and it may not happen in this situation, but a lineup featuring 8 or 9 GOOD players should not be a sub 500 team....time will tell....Creal, Bunch, Mitchell, Gray, Barber, Wilde have earned their longevity, and even relatively newbies Zimmerman and Huisman have had teams that achieved beyond expectations, but we are still waiting on Coach Thornhill.... this needs to be the year...

it isn't basketball, but congrats to ec softball for winning the sliac tournament and advancing to the ncaa tournament.  not ONE senior on this squad, either.

that's football, men's basketball, and softball all making the ncaa postseason.  what an amazing year for ec athletics.

Below are the 4 SLIAC qualifiers to the NCAA outdoor meet in the 200.  4 of the top 20 in the country.  Of note and relevance to this boards readers is, of course, RaKim from GU.

Corey Carter                  SO Principia              20.95
RaKim Murphy               FR Greenville            21.43

RaKim and his mates also qualified in the 4 x 100 at 41.29.
