preps

-- Remember Louisville's loss to Houston? The upset started the Cardinals' current hot streak, or so suggests the Hardin County (KY) Enterprise's Nathaniel Bryan. Louisville Courier-Journal staff writer Eric Crawford has a different take, finding the return of Denny Crum's 2-2-1 full court press the key to recent success.

-- The Chicago Tribune's Rick Morrissey suggests the Fighting Illini and their fans embrace an undefeated season. In Rick's eyes, there is no such thing as a "good loss."

-- Neil Milbert and Marlen Garcia, also of the Trib, praise the once again Golden Gophers ahead of the Minnesota-Illinois game. Wouldn't it be grand if the "unheralded assortment of walk-ons, junior-college transfers, former role players and freshmen, tied for third in the conference," took it to Bruce Weber's club? David vs. Goliath, indeed.

-- Adam Van Brimmer of the Morris News Service writes-up Georgia Tech's face-saving win over Wake Forest. But while the rest of the chattering class heaps praise upon Bynum, Jack and the Yellow Jackets, I last night found more about which to be concerned. Namely, Georgia Tech's inabilty to hold a big first-half lead.

-- Neither Tom Izzo nor Detroit Free Press columnist Michael Rosenberg are happy following Michigan State's win over Michigan. Such is the life when the Spartans fail to produce at the offensive end.
