I will no longer be able to continue to maintain this blog. If anyone is still interested in news about basketball in The Summit League -- interested enough to take over the maintenance of this blog, feel free to contact me via email (the link is near the top of the page). I can provide a list of bookmarks and I can see about adding you as a user able to post to this blog, or you can if you wish find some other site to host a blog about The Summit League.
In any event, I will not be posting daily lists of news links for the 2008-2009 basketball season. It's been fun, but maintaining both this blog and a similar blog for fans of the Horizon League takes more time than I can afford to devote, as I discovered this past season.
If you want this blog to continue, the ball's in your court ;)
