Closed for the time being

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 ;)

Moore spent the last two years as an assistant under Rex Walters at Florida Atlantic. Moore replaces Kareem Richardson, who left to become an assistant at Drake.

Moore spent five years at Wyandotte early in the decade and led the Bulldogs to a 14-7 record in 2004.
