    Mo Creek back on the court is a good thing. I hope he continues to take it slow and listen to his body and the trainer. By the way who is #5 in that picture? did IU schedule a 1A school last year?

  • Believe that's one of the sons of the Northwestern State coach.

    Any chance he redshirts this season? I hope not, but also would hate to see him have a lost year or re-injure himself. Hopefully the next 3mos will be very beneficial to his recovery.

    I've been thinking we need to have contests for pics on here, like, who can come up with the best caption for this picture? I'll take the first stab:

    “I could bench press #5 he's so small.”


    “Dang it. I wanted to be #5 and wear purple.”

    I doubt it. I think his injury is already healed, and is now just working on regaining strength in his leg.

    I hope you're right and that's pretty much what he said in the article I read in the Indy Star. If so 3 months is more than ample to get the strength back in the leg.

    P90X Baby. I kid but actually almost all workout programs are designed to see great results in you guessed it, about 3 months.

    Good luck Mo, come back strong.

    Welcome back Maurice! Does our hearts good to see you up and about, the team needs you. I hope he is patient and takes his time to properly heal & is full ready come January.

    I guess “Mo Creek prepares to box Corky” would be a bit mean, wouldn't it?

  • marcusgresham

    I'm doing some math here—-he got hurt in November, which is nine months ago (3/4 of a year.) He says he's about 70 to 75% healthy (that's 3/4 healthy.) That would indicate, hopefully, he should be back to about full strength in November of this year (just before conference play.)


    How about…….when I throw it down I grab the rim with both hands and……(as he looks at who he is talking to) nevermind, you wouldn't understand it's a dunking thing.

    I would say before that because of all the conditioning/practice and weight training that will be going on and hopefully will speed up the process.

    “Number 5 is my fav number AND my height, but soccer is my main sport and I wear it for the number of goals scored in the World Cup total by all teams.”

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    I thought he got hurt in late December or early January? He was on fire for the UK game, which i think was mid-Dec…

    Without seeing the schedule, I think a 90% Mo should be enough to help us beat most of our non-conference foes, but we'll need him at 100% if we have any shot of going .500 in the B10.

    Is that guy related to Rudy?

  • Outoftheloop

    That was the Coach's son for Northwestern State, IU's win 90-72 on 11/28/09. His name is Logan McConathy, 7 pts, 2/3 3 pt, 1/2 FT, 3 A, 2 TO, 1 S in 18 minutes. Mo was injured on 12/28/09 against Bryant

  • Outoftheloop

    Sorry Alex I had not seen your post yet when I put in mine above. At the time I thought he was a gritty little player, who was physically limited, but played hard with few mistakes. Pretty much the definition of many coach's sons in college basketball.

  • No worries. Thanks for the additional info.

  • marcusgresham

    You're right–my bad on the November thing.
