Happy Monday, kids! Who all's going to the Black and Gold game tomorrow? Say hi to the Dunk for me, it's a great building to see a game in. If you like it, come back during the season for a Providence game, they are super fun.

Camp is well under way (okay, it's three days in) and some interesting storylines are developing. It's Zach Hamill's last year of his contract; will the disappointing 2007 first-rounder step it up? Who will get that elusive last defense spot? QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED.
