Happy gameday, again! Tonight we'll take on the Kansas Jayhawks in what should be a thrilling game judging by our dominate performance against USC yesterday. And it looks like we might have pulled the old switcharoo on Bill Sefl's team too. Dylan Ennis is back and he looked excellent by all accounts (for a first game back anyways) and has added even more strength to our stellar backcourt.
Then, Seth Davis tweeted this out:
Kansas asst told me Wiggins basically has not left his room on this trip. He's feeling very sick--and it showed today. Nova smells blood.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) November 29, 2013
Their best player on the ropes battling a bug (seriously though, get better as soon as the final buzzer sounds tomorrow). And we've got one of our best players back from injury. Onward!
And now, the "news."

Thrive and Advance: No. 25 Marquette 86, Cal State Fullerton 66 | Anonymous Eagle
Marquette celebrated Thanksgiving with a leisurely romp over the host Titans to advance to the semifinals of the Wooden Legacy tournament. And Jamil Wilson finally played a good game.
...and that's it. Apparently only us hardworkers brought you what you craved on Thanksgiving. Xavier blew a big lead against Iowa and then lost in OT in Atlantis. Butler won a close affair with Washington St. Creighton had the biggest result of the day, absolutely hammering Arizona St. by 28 (they're in the Wooden Legacy with Marquette so we could get an early BIG EAST showdown in the finals).
None of our blogger friends had much to say about these games though, so, there ya have it!
