Editor's Early Preview (12/15):
Curry the younger, Steph, leads a Liberty program that is poised for bigger and better things in the coming few seasons. The Flames almost knocked off Clemson on the road, so they won't be intimidated by a trip to Saint Louis. Billikens games can be hard to watch for non-fans, and they're best hope is that they bore the opposition to sleep.
Full preview from the GameNight staff coming soon!

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Tony Gaffney (Sr.), Massachusetts. While others may have scored more points, no player helped his team any greater on both ends of the floor than did Gaffney. For the week, Gaffney averaged a double-double (13 points, 13 rebounds per game), and also intimidated opponents by swatting away five shots per outing, including a nine block effort against Boston College. A model of efficiency on the offensive end as well, the senior shot 67% in UMass’ two close defeats.
December 3rd, 2008 by Press Release
CARBONDALE, Ill. - After three-straight losses, in which opponents averaged 80 points per game, Southern Illinois head coach Chris Lowery recognized something was amiss with his team. When senior forward Tony Boyle spoke up after last week's loss at Western Kentucky, everything came into focus.
"Tony Boyle told me I was too soft," Lowery said, shortly after his team smothered Saint Louis, 64-48, Tuesday night. "I let some things slip, and that was on me. I needed to get back to coaching how I need to coach, and these kids responded."
