“Joe Butts here. A great 1st week for UML. 63 -42 vs. Pepperdine. 7 guys all played well. 8 TOs.

“Then it was 91-81 over UNLV and our 2nd straight home sellout- well, our 28th straight but I meant this year. 27, 7 for Rudy Betts, 21, 6, 5 ,2 for Seb Frak, 15, 7, 5, 5 for Del over. +12 TOs. 19 TOs but that was only -1.

“We’re off to the WS Midwest where we’ll face 0-2 Alabama. We’re the #4 seed, they’re #5.”

November 27
“’Sprotstalk’ here with your favorite sports announcer Joe Butts. It was a busy week for UML. We beat Alabama 72-68 in the quarters of the WS Midwest. 24, 9 for Del Over, 17, 5, 5, 2 for Clif Proe, 15, 6, 2 for Rudy Betts. 12 TOs, +10 boards.

“The tourney ended 61-65 vs. UNLV. They beat us with depth. Their bench had 23, ours had 4.

“We came back home for a 71-59 win over Cal. 6 guys in double figures, 8 TOs.

This week we continue the 4 game home stand vs. 4-0 Ohio from E, and then 2-2 Providence from F.”

December 4
“Joe the man Butts here. A great week for UML, 65-57 vs. Ohio. 28 for guard Seb Frak, 11 TOs.

81-71 vs. Providence. Rudy had 26, Seb 19, Del and Clif 13 each. 10 TOs.

“UML entered the rankings for the 1st time this season at #24.

“This week it’s 0-6 Minnesota here, then we’re at #21 Mississippi ST, 4-3.”

December 11
“The UML River Hawks keep rolling along, 89-71 vs. Minnesota. 26, 5, 3, 2 for Rudy, 22 for Clif, and another sell out crowd.

83-78 at #21 Mississippi ST. 21, 12 for Rudy who has been on fire lately. 20, 3, 4 for Seb, 15, 9, 2, 3, 2 for Del, 11, 9, 6 for Clif. +15 RBs. The only down side was 19 TOs.

“We’re up to #17, RPI #22.

“It’s instate rival UMass, 5-2, there, this week.”

“Joe Butts here. Man there are rough nights and there are rough nights. UML stunk the place out against UMass, 55-78. 2-20 on threes, 17 TOs, -8 RBs, big guys in foul trouble all night. Nothing to do but move on.

“This week we host #23, 5-3 Florida from B.”

December 25
“A really tough loss against FL, 73-81 in OT. Florida hit a 28 foot luck shot at the end of regulation to send it to OT and that seemed to take the wind out of our sails. 16,14, 3, 2 for Del, 18 for Seb, 16, 4, 2, 2 for Rudy. 18 TOs hurt.

“This week we’re at 6-4 Auburn, to close the pre-conf. season.

1st U.S. mandatory seat belt law- New York

“We Are the World”

January 1
“The losing streak ends at 2. 76-58 at Auburn. 16, 7, 4 for Clif, 16, 9 for Rudy, 13, 11, 4 for Del. +16 RBs but 14 TOs.

“We end pre-conf. play at 9-3.

“This week we start conf. C play against 2-9 UConn here, then it’s 6-6 Dayton there.

January 8
“Joe Butts with the Sunday UML hoops wrap. A great start to conf. play. 80-59 UConn. 19 each for Betts and Proe. 11 each for Frak and Stak. 11 TOs. Sub Phil Barr strained abdominals. Out about 10 days.

“Then it was 58-49 at Dayton. Great D held them to 21.6%. Clif Proe had 21, and we had 43 RBs. TOs continue to be a problem, 18.

“We’re at 10-4 BC, then home with 8-5 Oregon.”

January 15
“A tough 66-68 loss at BC. This one turned on a bad call. Clif Proe drove to the hoop on our final possession and was called for a charge. The replay made it obvious that it was a terrible call; he was literally grabbed by the defender who stepped right into his path. Tough way to lose. 19, 6 for Rudy, 11, 13, 4 for Del. 46 RBs but 20 TOs.

“Then it was 87-65 over Oregon here. 24, 7, 4 for Rudy, 16 for Marq, 12 each for Del and Clif. 6 TOs.

“Del Over hurt his wrist. He’ll play in our next game but may not be 100%.

“We start the week at #12 Memphis, 13-3. Then we’re home with 9-8 New Mexico.”

January 22
“Joe Butts here. Another 1-1 week for UML. 59-66 at Memphis in a game where we simply fell apart in the 2nd half. We blew a 19 point lead by shooting 4-20 in the 2nd, and letting them shoot 12-24. 17 TOs, -13 RBs.

“69-52 over New Mexico here. 22, 5 for Rudy, 9 TOs, +6 RBs.

“We’re in a 3 way tie for 3rd, 1 back of 1st.

“This week we’re on the road, 1st with 10-9 Michigan, then at 8-9 West VA.”

January 29
“Still another 1-1 week for UML. 62-60 at Michigan. 27, 5 for Rudy, 12, 6, 3 for Marq. We led most of the way but it got tense at the end. 19 TOs.

61-68 at West VA. We shot 29.7%, under 25% in the 2nd half.

“We’re still one back of 1st but 3 teams ahead of us, 3 more tied with us.

“Cincinnati, 10-9, at home, then at 11-8 VA Tech.”

February 5
“A good week for UML. 57-48 over Cincinnati. 15, 10, 2, 2 for Marq, +3 TOs, +5 RBs, very good D.

73-61 at VA Tech. 23, 5 for Rudy, 17, 9, 2, 4 for Del. +7 RBs, +3 TOs.

“We’re in a 6 way tie for 1st, and back in the rankings at #23, RPI 16.

“2 at home this week. 15-8, 7-3 Miami, then 7-14, 2-8 Alabama. We beat them 72-68 in the WS Midwest.”

February 12
57-60 at home to Miami. This one hurt. We took 14 more shots and didn’t make them count, especially from long range, 4-19.

67-59 over Alabama. We played better, 4 in doubles, 13 TOs, +5 RBs.

“We’re in a 4 way tie for 3rd, 1 back of Memphis and W VA.

“This week it’s 2 on the road, 14-9, 8-4 Missouri, and then 8-15, 6-6 UConn.”

February 19

“63-77 at Missouri. The D was awful and we had 19 TOs.

73-71 at UConn. We barely got this one. 20 for Rudy, 8, 12, 4, 2, 2 for Del. The D was not good again, but +12 RBs helped.

We’re alone in 6th, 1 back of 5 teams.

“We end the regular season at home, first with 11-15, 5-9 Dayton, then with 16-10, 7-7 BC. We desperately need 2 wins.”

February 26
“86-77 over Dayton which put us in a 6 way tie going to our last game. 25, 4, 1, 3 for Rudy, 17, 7, 2, 4 for Del, 18 for Clif. +13 TOs (9).

“68-58 over BC. We won when we had to win. 23, 7 for Rudy, 8 TOs, 36 RBs.

We end up in a 4 way tie for 1st, #3 seed. 20-8, 11-5. Ranked #19, RPI #22.

March 12
“Coach says since we’re #19, RPI 19, he thinks a #5 or #6 seed. Let’s see what happens.

“Not in the East.

“Not in the Midwest.

“#4 in the South. We play #13 Pitt, 17-11, from D conf."

“UML beat #3 seed, #11 ranked Michigan ST 69-65 in the 1st round of the preseason NIT. 18, 6, 4 for guard Clif Proe, 17 and 5 for SF Kris More. 9 TOs. We never led by more than 8 but we led most of the way.

“It was 74-68 over #6 seed Stanford. 18, 6 for C Ran Minn, 15 each for Proe and Tod Stem.

77-68 over #22 ranked, #7 seed KY. 20 for Proe, 19 for More, 12 each for Minn and Stem. 10 TOs.

“Then in the final, against #4 ranked, #5 seed Ga we lost 80-81. 5 lead changes in the last 90 seconds. They had the last possession and scored. 21, 2, 7 for guard Tod Stem, 20, 6, 4, 3 for Kris More. All 5 starters in double figures. 18 TOs hurt.

“+14 RBs, +6 TOs. 21, 11, 2, 4 for Ran Minn, 19, 3, 2, 4 for Tod Stem.”

“Then a tough loss, 63-66 vs. #13 Florida.”

“42 rebounds but we had very poor shot selection, 31.4%. 22, 10 for Ran, and all three of our bigs had 10 RBs. We had a chance to tie on our last possession but we really didn’t get a good look on the last shot.”

“This week we’re at 0-4 Wyoming, then back home to start a 6 game home stretch vs. 2-2 Texas Tech.”

“Then an 83-61 blowout over Texas Tech.”

“We were on fire. 18 each fro More and Stem, 16 and 10 for Minn, 7 TOs, 36 RBs, and good D.”

“This week we host 2-3 Gonegaga, and then #22 Tennessee, 5-1. Coach, after the NIT it’s 8 of 10 at home.”

“That’s great but we’ll probably pay for it next year.”

December 11
“A good week for UML hoops. 79-67 over Gonegaga. Coach?”

“22, 10 for Ran, all 5 starters in double figures. 11 TOs+10 RBs.”

“Then 59-51 over #22 Tennessee.”

“This was a strange game. Monk, Minn, and Proe all were in foul trouble all night and none of them played much but the bench was terrific. 11, 9 for backup guard Dan Schy, 10 each for Marq Stak and Seb Frak. The bench got it done for us. 12 TOs, 43 RBs.”

“How big a factor is home cookin’?”

“It helps, no doubt about it.”

“This week it’s home against cross state rival UMass, 3-4, then at 5-3 LSU.”

December 18
“And another big week for UML. Joe Butts here; Coach is on the road. It was 83-51 over UMass here. 44 RBs, 9 TOs. 14 and 12 for Ran, 16, 4, 4 for Clif, 17, 4, 2 for Kris. 27, 12, 9 from the bench.

“Then a big road win, 72-65 at LSU. This was a battle but we really dominated the last 7-8 minutes. 24, 4, 4 for Kris More, 11 TOs.

“This week we host #25 KY, 7-3. We beat them by 9 in the semis of the preseason NIT.

We’re 10-2, #12, RPI #3. +9.7 PPG, +6.5 RBs, +3.7 TOs and at 12.1, which is very close to Coach’s target of 12.0. We have 4 guys averaging 10 or more PPG”

December 25
“81-57 over #25 KY. Coach?”

“We really played well, 7 TOs, 35 RBs, and we led all the way. 27, 4, 4 for Kris More who is really coming into his own, and Tod Stem had 20. 13, 11 for John Monk.”

January 1
“Joe Butts here. 70-48 over Western KY to close out pre-conf. play at 12-2. Our 2 losses were by 1 point and 3 points over teams that were #4 and #13 at the time. Not bad!

“This week we start conf. B play with 5-7 Bright Yams here, and then at #2 Indiana, 13-1. That one will be a challenge. TOUGH conf.! 5 top 10 games, 11 top 25!”

January 8
75-46 vs. Bright Yams. Coach?”

“5 TOs, 37 RBs, and we led all the way. 26, 8, 2 for Ran, 23, 5 for Kris, 16, 4, 3 for Tod.”

76-82 at #2 Indiana.”

“Tough one. They led by as many as 19 but we actually came back and caught them. Our guards were in foul trouble late and that, along with 20 TOS, did us in. We’ve been doing great with TOs but not tonight. 30, 2, 4, 2, 2 for Ran. We played well against an excellent team and we’ve still only lost to very good teams and we’ve kept it close.”

“Another challenge in that department next. #6 Syracuse, 10-5, comes to town. Then we’re at 4-9 Memphis.”

“We would love to beat Syracuse. That’s a big challenge but it would be a huge win.”

January 15
63-60 over #6 Syracuse here at home! Coach?”

“This was a great win. It was tied 4 times in the last 2 minutes but they never got the lead. 7 guys had between 6 and 15 points. 9 TOs.”

“Then 69-72 at Memphis.

“This was an exceedingly frustrating loss for lots of reasons. First and foremost, we lost John Monk for at least two weeks due to a bruised calf. He got hurt 4 minutes into the game. Then When Ran and Kris both got in early foul trouble we had to go way down deep. Our bench played really well but I can’t help feel it would have been different with our starters in, and they won it at the line. We’re 2-2 in conf. play and it would be nice to be 3-1.”

“#10 Oklahoma, 14-1, here, then 8-7 West VA there.”

January 22
“Joe Butts on ‘Sportscenter.’ UML is rockin’! 69-51 over #10 Oklahoma here. 7 TOs, 36 RBs. 17, 8, 3, 2 for Ran, 14, 7, 4 for Clif.

“Then we travelled to West VA and won a squeaker 63-60. +7 RBs but 18 TOs. 13, 11, 2, 3 for Ran, 13, 7, 3, 2 for Kris, 14 for sub Dan Schy.

We’re 16-4, 4-2, tied for 3rd, 1 back of Indiana, 2 back of Creighton.

“This week we host 10-7, 2-4 Arizona, then 11-7, 2-4 Marquette.”
January 29

“Another great week for UML. 85-68 vs. Arizona. 21, 6 for Kris, 16, 3, 6 for Tod. 12 TOs.

85-63 over Marquette. 27, 4 for Kris, 18, 5, 4 for Tod, 13, 7 for Ran. 9 TOs, +11 RBs.

We’re in a 3 way tie for 2nd, 1 back of Indiana.

“Ran Minn is #7 and Kris More #12 on the Norton List.

“This could be a very tough week on the road. 1st we’re at #13 Creighton, 18-3, 7-3. Then it’s #17 Stanford, 15-7, 5-5. If we go 1-1 I think Coach will be pleased.

“John Monk reinjured his calf but he should be okay for our next game.

“A HUGE week to end the regular season, first it’s #2 in the country, #1 in conf. Indiana here, 26-2, 13-1, then we travel to 18-9, 8-6 Syracuse, #8 in the country.”

64-66 to #2 Indiana. +12 RBs. We had 3 threes, they had 10, including the last one with 0.9 left. Tough loss. 27, 11, 2, 4 for Ran. We’ve lost a few but we’ve been competitive in every game so far this season.

“68-61 at #8 Syracuse. 16, 8 for Kris, 11, 8, 2 for Ran, 6, 12 for John Monk. 11 TOs, 35 RBs."

“I’m disappointed. We were up 12 with 10 minutes left and we let it slip away. Ran had 21, 8, 3, 2, and 3 other guys had 12 or more.”

“How high will you go in the Big Dance?”

“I think a #2 is possible and I’d be disappointed with less than a #3. We played a tough schedule and did very well against it.”

“Not in the Midwest.

“Not in the South.

“#1 in the West. Coach?”


“I’m thrilled. You can hear how my guys feel. What a racket!”

“#2 UCLA, #3 Georgetown, #4 Florida ST, #5 Georgia.”

March 17
21-11 Rider. Should be a mismatch.
