October 27, 2003 Conference Notes No Comments

The Morning Dish – Monday, October 27th

Big Ten in Hoosierland: No, it’s not an announcement that Notre Dame is joining the Big Ten. The Big Ten has announced that it has selected Indianapolis to host the 2006 Big Ten Tournament, which takes place three weeks before the NCAA Final Four uses invades the city. The Big Ten championship will be played in Conseco Fieldhouse, home of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers, while the Big Dance is across downtown at the RCA Dome. Conseco Fieldhouse hosted the Big Ten Tournament in 2002, and will also host it this upcoming March 2004. However, with so many NBA facilities in Big Ten territory, we here at Hoopville would like to think that the conference would spread it around a little. Where’s the love for Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee and Minneapolis? The Big Ten Tournament has taken place at either Conseco or the United Center in Chicago since its inception.

Wolfpack Hurting: North Carolina State guard Cameron Bennerman will miss the entire non-conference slate for the Wolfpack after breaking a bone in his right hand. Bennerman injured the hand in practice after jamming it into another player’s back going up for a rebound. Bennerman, a reserve who averaged 2.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 28 games last season, averaging 10 minutes of playing time, is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Cowboy Homicide: Former Wyoming reserve guard Brett Studdard yesterday shot his former girlfriend and then committed suicide, according to Georgia police. Studdard, who lived in Marietta, Georgia, shot Kelly Jo Kranze of Roswell, Georgia, twice, once in the back of the head, following an altercation in her front yard, and then took his own life. The murder-suicide occurred two days after a restraining order against Studdard was issued, forbidding him from contacting Kranze or owning a firearm. Studdard played for the Cowboys from 1991-93, and averaged 4.3 points and one rebound in 57 games.
