Monday Morning Dump

By the time you read this, we will be somewhere between Springfield, IL and Columbia, MO. We left Milwaukee, WI at 5:00AM and have to be at Mizzou Arena by 5:00PM for a Big XII showdown between Missouri and Texas A&M.

Instead of providing a dump of various links from the college hoops world, we are going to fill you in on all of our travels thus far.

If you really want to get a pulse of the college hoops world, I suggest read The Dagger's Breakfast Buffet or CBS Eye on CBball's Wake-up Call. They both do good work. Not as good as we do, but solid nonetheless.

SITE NEWS: On Friday, we will be volunteering our time and effort to Habitat for Humanity in Joplin, MO. As you should be well aware, devastating tornadoes ravished the city of Joplin, and we are going to chip in whatever way we can as we stop through from Springfield, MO, to Tulsa, OK.

We will be in the state of Missouri all week -- we're covering the Missouri-Texas A&M game on Monday and the Creighton-Missouri State game on Wednesday -- so from now until Friday morning, we will donate $1 for every new Twitter follower we get at @ballinisahabit. As of post-time, we have 3,810 followers.

Here's what we've been up to:

- Marquette's Jae Crowder is a match-up nightmare, but he almost never made it out of JuCo

- #BIAHroadtrip Diary Part XIII: How to kill time in Indianapolis

- Cleveland State doesn't have Norris Cole anymore, but that hasn't seemed to be an issue at all

- Pitt can still turn this thing around

- this isn't the same Butler team as a year ago, but the future is bright for Brad Stevens' crew

- All our pics and vids from Butler vs. Cleveland State

- Wisconsin's biggest issue? They can't shoot consistently.
