Having a beat reporter that goes to practices and asks questions is AWESOME.

#mubb Vander Blue's left knee is OK but He won't play Monday night against UMBC.— Michael Hunt (@MichaelHuntMJS) November 26, 2012
Hunt was in attendance at MU's Sunday night practice, and reports that Blue spent parts of practice on a stationary bicycle. Hunt even provided us with a picture from practice, but you're going to need better eyes than me to be able to pick Blue out, because I definitely don't see a bicycle in the picture.
Here's what we know: 1) Marquette is predicted to win against UMBC by 28 on KenPom.com and 2) Marquette travels to Gainesville to play Florida as part of the Big East/SEC Challenge on Thursday night. Seems like a pretty easy decision to keep your starting shooting guard with a sprained knee on the bench for this one.
Do you agree with the decision to keep Vander Blue out of Monday's game?
