    50-42 with 8 minutes to play. Illinois needs to make a run if they want to advance

    Loyola's big man is damn good, especially for a 40 year old. His grand kids are probably going nuts watching this game.

    Is it safe to say the BIG10 is overrated this year?

    I went down from a 38-40 inch vert to about 30-31 inches now. Getting older sucks.

    Either that or we just have some lower seeds that are better than their seeding would indicate.

    And it doesn't get any better but having a vertical as high as you did is durn good.

    Never officially measured, but I have a standing reach of 7'6" which means I need 2 1/2 feet (30 inches) vert to touch the rim. I used to be able to dunk in my prime and could get at least my whole hand over the rim. Palm to tip, my hand is about 9" long, so there's my math on it.

    I never could dunk but I'd get high enough to push the ball over the edge of the rim.
