To begin the voting, I am starting with the guard position over the past decade, from the 2008 season through the 2017 season.

So this is how the voting will go. The top two guards will be the starters for the all decade team. I have grouped the point guards and shooting guards to make it a little easier to roll through. Yes, it kind of takes away from the point guards because their stats will not be able to go against the high scoring players in the past decade, but look at a game report, they do not list who was at point guard. The rosters don’t even distinguish a point guard vs. a shooting guard, so this is how I am going to roll with this type of poll.

Any other guards that are getting a lot of votes will either make the roster as a reserve or will get an honorable mention in the final recap. I hope everyone enjoys the voting and please make sure to share it and vote away.

Next, I am opening up the voting with the forward position over the past decade, from the 2008 season through the 2017 season.

So this is how the voting will go. The top two forwards will be the starters for the all decade team. I have grouped the forwards together, simply because it is hard while going through the old records to figure out who was a power forward and who was a small forward.

Any other forwards that are getting a lot of votes will either make the roster as a reserve or will get an honorable mention in the final recap. I hope everyone enjoys the voting and please make sure to share it and vote away. (more…)

The 2009-2010 season was a good one for the Bulls but the biggest moment was the upset victory over then 7th ranked Georgetown on the road on a Wednesday (February 3rd 2010 to be precise) night in Washington, DC. The Bulls would rally in the second half of this Big East contest, winning 72 to 64. Dominique Jones went off for 22 points as the Bulls won one of their biggest upsets in program history on the road. The Bulls would eventually head to the NIT at the end of the season.

Basketball doesn’t return until October, but perhaps upsets like this are on the horizon as Coach Gregory continues to rebuild the program. Brighter days ahead!

Here we go, the voting for the center position over the past decade, from the 2008 season through the 2017 season, is here to begin this series.

One center will take the top spot in the starting five. Any other centers that are getting a lot of votes will either make the roster as a reserve or will get an honorable mention in the final recap. I hope everyone enjoys the voting and please make sure to share it and vote away. (more…)

Per Joey Knight – The Bulls have landed a commit from the 6’6″ small forward Madut Akec out of Bradenton, FL (Victory Rocks Prep).

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of data about him on the recruiting sites but I did find this short highlight video of some of highlight tape (with other players):

 

The Bulls made some news today, adding freshman guard Zack Dawson from Oklahoma State. The 6’3″ 185 lbs. guard played in 5 games for the Cowboys last year, averaging 4.4 PPG and 1.6 APG. Dawson was rated as a 4-star recruit by ESPN, but was dismissed from Oklahoma State after multiple violations of team rules. Dawson will have to sit out this year, but will have 3 years of eligibility after that.

This is an interesting get for Coach Gregory and his staff as they prepare for the second season of the rebuild. It will take time, but this could be a great get for the Bulls in the future.
