Does anyone really cares? Frazier is the worst gaurd in the Big Ten. He cannot drive, shoot, make good assit, and the only thing he can do is play a little Defense. This kid is a bust.

With or without him the Illni will only get to the 2nd Round of the Tournament-then, light's out!.

Please find someone who knows about Recruiting Real Talent.

I find your post insulting. Chester Frazier is the premier defender in the Big 10 who has become a great leader and a fine point guard. Take a look at the Big 10 standings and see what team finished second.

Are you the guy from Baltimore who claims he's from Chicago or am I thinking of someone else?

Chester Frasier is a GREAT point guard. HE ROCKS! It would take a broken hand to put him on the sideline, he has played through physical and emotional pain for years at the "house of paign"

American First - if you want to watch nothing but offense, I'd recommend checking out the NBA All-Star games from the past 5-10 years. I for one enjoy both sides of the game, and Frazier is especially exciting to watch on defense. He hounds some teams' highest scorers and effectively takes them out of the game. I hope he does in fact recover in time for the NCAA Tournament, but in the meantime I'm excited to likely see more of Jeff Jordan in the BTT. I think he'll end up a lot like Frazier by his senior year.
