Since these rumors are persisting that Council might not play tonight I’m going to continually check up on it and provide updates here whenever I get new information, whether it be bad or good. As of 10:18 last night (yes, I’m doing exact time stamps) I had a source close to the team confirm that Council was on the trip and should be playing unless something drastic happens, which I then related onto the Scout message board thread regarding this same topic. Because I don’t believe you’ve won the race until you’ve crossed the finish line I’m going to keep monitoring until tip off tonight, when everyone will know for sure. For now my most recent word on the matter has been that Council will play tonight, but we all know how things can change in a matter of moments in the college basketball world.
UPDATE 1: 2:20pm – Source got back to me and confirmed 100% that Council is on the trip and ineligible players can’t travel with the team. Continuing to monitor just in case. Chance of Council playing: high
