The Chicago Bulls are on top of the Eastern Conference and currently hold the best record in the NBA at 41-11 and a comfortable lead over the Miami Heat. Although they have been doing this without their All-Star and MVP Derrick Rose. He is their go-to guy and can keep them in any game on any night.
Can they be a legitimate threat without their star? The answer is yes, and they have been proving this throughout the whole entire season, playing without Rose who has been suffering from many injuries that keep reoccurring. They are able to play without him because of the Bulls have the best and deepest bench in the league. Many of their bench players could be starters for many other teams in the league, and the arrival of bench player John Lucas have allowed then to still compete against and beat the best teams in the League.
They are better than most teams without Rose. With him healthy, they are nearly unstoppable. The depth of this team has gained their bench the nickname of the “Bench Mob” as it is almost like a whole new group of starters coming into the game to play against most teams backups.
The depth allows Rose to rest his body completely and not try to fight the injuries, or speed up the process to try and comeback early. He has the ability to rest so that he may come back 100% healthy and in time for the playoffs to begin, and prepare to make a run and the NBA World Championship. The Chicago Bulls are still an elite team without Derrick Rose.
Danks to Get the Nod for Opening Day
by Marcel Terrell, Chicago Student
With Spring Training nearing an end, the Chicago White Sox still did not have an opening day starter. However after pitcher John Danks went seven strong innings against the L. A. Dodgers on Monday in a 4-3 loss (Danks got a no decision) at Camelback Ranch manager Robin Ventura announced that Danks would get the nod on April 6 against the Texas Rangers in Arlington.
It’s not unusual to see a lefty take the mound for opening day considering how Mark Buehrle now a Miami Marlin started the opening game every season from 2002 to 2006 and again from 2008 to 2011 for the Sox.
As for Danks reaction to getting the opening day nod he said, “It’s an honor. It’s something everyone dreams about, throwing on opening day,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to watch five of them. You can’t help but think, `Man, what if that were me out there?”

Approaching the playoffs, many teams have a lot of momentum and steam built up to help them try to run through the playoffs. The Chicago Blackhawks are not in this boat. Yes they have won 5 out 6, but they have key losses that are holding them back currently. The team is currently playing without their captain Jonathan Toews. In addition they are also playing without their top defender, Duncan Keith, who has been suspended by the NHL for 5 games. Will the Blackhawks be able to get all of their players back and also healthy in time for playoffs is a mystery.

Gas prices just went up to an average of $4.67 per gallon in Chicago, which is the highest in the continental U.S. but it is being said that the prices should be short term. The reason for the increase, Phil Flynn of the brokerage PFGBest says, is because of a pipeline disruption and problems at refineries, including a reputed glitch at BP’s operations in Whiting, Ind.
Do you have a strong sense of justice and a desire to stand up for the rights of others? If so, the RMU chapter of UNA-USA has an opportunity for you! The club will be giving a presentation about the horrors of human trafficking, featuring a chilling documentary called Call and Response. The practice of selling men, women, and children as worker, soldier, and sex slaves is a global problem of massive proportions. While we may assume this is an issue only for impoverished countries, it actually affects thousands of people here in the United States.
To learn more about this atrocity and what you can do to get involved, the UNA-USA club cordially invites you to the presentation, which will be held in the student center, on March 27 at 1:30 PM.
There will be free food samples in the Chicago Student Center (7th floor) on Tuesday, March 13 from 11:30-12:30 & 5:30-6:30. The event is hosted by RMU student Ashley DiBella with food by Wisma. The tasting is in an effort to eventually have Wisma products for regular sale in the Chicago Student Center so that students will have healthy, affordable food options to choose from on campus.
