    #10 is awesome.
    Love seeing us ahead of a name like Syracuse and that style I hate of Wisconsin.

    How many points does being coached by Fred add to your Basketball IQ?

    #10, #13 & #14.

    The 2010 coaching menage-a-trois is looking more and more like a win-win-win.

    Didn't really care for the insinuation that Kane's eye gouge was on purpose, but otherwise good stuff.

    That picture makes the eye gouge look a lot worse than it was. It already looked bad enough in slow-motion, but I really don't think it was intentional. He was clearly trying to foul him, but didn't expect his face to be where his arms and the ball should have been

    Exactly. Drago committed what I always thought was a cardinal sin for post players, he had the ball down low in the paint. Kane wasn't expecting that at all, cause obviously the better play would be to grab the ball down low and strip it, which we had done several times with their other big guy. He turned and hands went where he thought ball would be and Drago moved forward at same time.

    I was looking for an update to Mika and found this. The picture does show how bad Kane got him, but I don't believe he meant to do that. In motion it appeared he expected the ball to come up, and instead Mika leaned into it. But this still image is firing people up, as it appears to be a blatant move by Kane.

    Love the post about Kane being banned for life and Mika should file a civil suit against Kane. Wow.

    Did anyone else say or think this when it happened?

    I'm sure he was under orders to make sure Mika didn't get a shot off and to send him to the line with a hard foul as a 60% shooter. Common basketball sense. Just so happened Mika hesitated slightly and Kane hit his face. Not a concussion causing blow for which the rule was designed for but an inadvertent eye gouge. A single frame from a video cannot tell the whole story. If players had that kind of aim you'd have a lot more steals and very few hacks across the arms.

    That's the way I saw it when it happened. That still picture has to be taken in the context of what was going on before and what Kane was anticipating. It clearly wasn't intentional.
