Forgot about this in all the details about USI’s beating Lewis yesterday: USI’s Aaron Nelson broke the single-season school record for rebounds. Which shouldn’t be a surprise, of course. His 11 rebounds on Friday gave him 340 for the season, breaking the mark of 332 set by all-American and GLVC Player of the Year Chris Thompson during the 2005-06 season. I don’t remember Thompson; I wasn’t covering USI at the time and wasn’t paying close attention (hey, I was loaded up with local high school sports that year — eight schools in the SIAC. OK, so call me a waaaaaaambulance). Anyway, USI SID Ray Simmons remembers Thompson as a 6-5, 6-6 wide body who just dominated around the basket that season following a so-so junior year after transferring to USI from a junior college. Can’t do anything about it now, but one can dream of what Nelson would have accomplished — and USI, by extension — if he had stayed healthy last season. Then again, Nelson and Keith DeWitt together might have wound fighting for the the ball in the post. But it would have been a nice problem for the Eagles to have.
