JMIII Receives Full Scholarship

From the NUSports website, this link surfaced showing James Montgomery III being called up in front of the full team, being praised for his hard work and perimeter defense, then being rewarded with a full scholarship. Everyone's favorite (former) walk-on then called his mom and sister, who were predictably pretty damn happy. For what it's worth, JMIII averaged .7 ppg, .5 rpg, and .3 spg, appearing most often after injuries forced Drew Crawford to seek a medical redshirt. He reached a high of 15 minutes in a rout at Purdue (that I was at--ugh), and scored a season-high 4 points against Michigan in a 94-66 rout. Congrats, James! I embedded the Northwestern Sports tweets below:

I don't know if you guys watch Key and Peele, but this was on tonight and I felt like it was pretty much spot on. What with SoP's affinity for names, I had to share.

Don't know who his sources are, but seems like Carmody could get fired in the offseason. Gottlieb's saying a lot of the same things that anti-Carmody people have been for awhile. Good tactician, less than stellar recruiter. To be clear, I think the guy's done a great job getting the program to the brink of respectability. 11 years ago, that was unfathomable. But right now, this team is too talented for a CBI berth to be in their imminent future.

Piece I did on Juice Thompson for SportsNight. Hard to reflect on his amazing career in under two minutes, but I did the best I could. You guys are actually getting a sneak peak; this doesn't go on Evanston public cable (!) until Thursday at 10 pm.
