Most attempts to read the tea leaves of the 2005-06 season have been scuttled by the UIC Flames, who have won over the hearts of Chicago's schizophrenic community by losing its home opener to a Division II team and upsetting Georgia Tech in a guarantee game two days later. Now they've surrendered the Keys to the City to Chi-State, a team whose annual struggles to get double-digit wins have won over the hearts of Chicagoans who think the Cubs have become too good.
But we're not here to talk about UIC, it's time to honor the pint-sized dynamo who took them down yesterday. Royce Parran is a 5'10" scoring machine whose effort helped his Cougars erase a 19-point second-half deficit. Then, in the final moments, his key steals and assists helped seal the deal in a town with my kind of razamatazz, that has all that jazz.
