It was really only a matter of time before Lexus Williams got hurt and there was nothing he could really do about it.

As the 2014-15 basketball season unofficially began on Monday morning with the start of summer workouts, I'll be spending each day this week examining a different topic related to the Valparaiso men's basketball team. Today we start with a look at transfers.
Covering a coaching change may just about be the most maddening type of story in all of sports journalism.
Given Monday night's Tulsa World report that Bryce Drew has potentially ascended up Tulsa's wishlist, the Valparaiso faithful should be preparing themselves for the inevitable that Drew will no longer be pacing the sidelines at the Athletics-Recreation Center.

There comes a moment in every poker tournament when you're put to a decision for all of your chips and you need to figure out just what your objective is. Maybe you're nearing the money bubble and you don't necessarily want to put all your chips at risk knowing you can fold your way to a sma…
The dust has settled on an incredible weekend of games in the Horizon League and with three days off until the next contest, it's time to take some inventory of what we learned.
If the last week was any indication, we're in for a wild final month of the Horizon League regular season. With most teams still having six or seven conference games left, it's likely far too early to start examining how the final standings could shake out. That doesn't mean I'm not going to try.

Happy Holiday! College basketball has "officially" returned with the start of normal practices today. I say normal because teams have been able to practice throughout the school year on a limited time basis. The Valparaiso men's basketball team was on the court on Wednesday and Thursday, so …
The "unofficial" official beginning of the 2013-14 college basketball season is this Friday as the NCAA is now allowing men's basketball programs to begin practice three weeks earlier than normal.
