Dustin not holding a grudge

Like most kids coming out of high school, I wanted to play on TV, play big-time Division I basketball," Maguire said in a radio interview Saturday. "From what I've seen of Division II basketball, it's big-time too. I feel great about this program and I'm really excited about where we're going this year.

"I'm not disappointed by the way things turned out at all."

Classy kid.

Maguire, who turns 21 on Wednesday, poured in 28 points to lead the Norse to a 72-57 victory over Ferris State. Maguire was 8 of 16 from the field, including 3 of 8 from the arc, and 9 of 9 from the foul line. He also had a game-high nine rebounds with zero turnovers in 35 minutes.

Go Norse!

Shaun Pratl decides to play basketball

15 September 2008 - 11:22 AM

per Chicago Sun Times:


Shaun Pratl has made a decision. After weighing his options--should I play basketball or football in college?--the 6-8, 210-pound senior from Richards has decided to concentrate on basketball.

"The recruiting process has been very frustrating for him," Richards basketball coach John Chappetto said. "He lost out on a couple of basketball scholarships because he wasn't committed yet and they went ahead and got someone else. Because he wasn't sure which sport he wanted to concentrate on, schools didn't express as much interest as he would have liked."

Now interest figures to pick up. Pratl already has basketball offers from Illinois State, Indiana State and Eastern Illinois. But St. Louis and Indiana-Fort Wayne already are expressing interest and Chappetto expects more calls as word of Pratl's commitment spreads.

Class of 2009 Washington High School basketball star Dyricus Simms-Edwards of the 17-U Illinois Wolves will miss the July Evaluation Period with a stress fracture in his ankle.

Simms-Edwards, a 6-2 point guard, ranks as one of the top Class of 2009 basketball prospects in the state of Illinois. The stress fracture will keep Simms-Edwards off the court for the next 6-12 weeks.

Simms-Edwards, who had been playing through a wrist injury, had been slated to open the July Evaluation Period at Reebok U in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Simms-Edwards has seen his recruiting stock skyrocket over the course of the past year at Washington High School, and also on the travel team circuit with the Illinois Wolves.
