It hasn't been a good week, health-wise, for basketball teams in the Metroplex. The night after Dirk went down with a knee injury in the Mavs' win over Oklahoma City, the Frogs return to action against Chicago State without starting point guard Hank Thorns.
I should probably apologize for discussing the NBA here on spitblood- after all, this blog is about the Frogs, not whatever petty arguments exist out there between folks cheering for the state's three pro basketball squads. But if you are a fan of trash-talk between Spurs, Mavs and Rockets fans, 2011 will be a fun year here on SB. We're planning on launching an NBA trash-talk board as part of our Section V Forum. So be sure to come back after the Rose Bowl and keep up with basketball season and recruiting until it's up & running.
Anywho, Thorn's injury was not as bad as originally expected and he should return for the bulk of the MWC schedule. Tonight is the most winnable game of the remaining non-conference slate, as Chicago State comes in at 3-12. They were doubled up, 102-51, last time out against Drake. Everyone loves the Drake, but apparently Drake doesn't like CSU because, well, Chicago isn't a state.
