Hard to believe that the final regular season (and final home) game of the 2012 season is Saturday for the Indiana State men’s basketball team.  The Sycamores take on Creighton at 4:05 on a nationally televised game on ESPN 2.  Depending the outcome of other games, Indiana State could get the #3 seed in the MVC Arch Madness conference tournament in St. Louis next week with a win over Creighton, who has already clinched the #2 seed.

It is also senior day for four great seniors who were a big part of ISU’s conference championship team last year, and they deserve a full house to thank them for their hard word and dedication to the ISU basketball program.

 

Those seniors are:

 

#15 Carl Richard

# 20 Dwayne Lathan

#24 Jordan Printy

#34 Myles Walker

I’ll be at the Hulman Center Saturday afternoon, hope to see you there!!
