By George Thomas Published: December 12, 2012

Zips players have adopted the right attitude when it comes to the recent loss against Creighton in Omaha.  It’s best to let it go.

Zips men's basketball: A chance to play bigger

By George Thomas Published: December 7, 2012

Coach Keith Dambrot looked especially intense in practice today – with good reason.
