DEPAUL INJURY NOTE: Paul Reed missed this past Saturday’s game with what was declared to be a hip pointer. That was three days ago, and it seems unlikely that a 6’9”, 220 pound guy is going to suddenly have healthier hips in that time frame. Without any further information available than “he missed the last game,” I’d list him as “questionable” at best. Reed is averaging 14.9 points, a team high 10.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.6 blocks per game.
