Good Morning! Happy start to your Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend.
We’ll start with something we Tweeted about earlier today — a report from TexasHSFootball.com that Nick Montana is “likely” to transfer to Blinn College, a two-year school in Brenham, Texas best known as the place where Cam Newton spent a year before heading to Auburn.
“I’ve been at Oregon State going on 12 years as a player, graduate assistant and assistant coach,” Heyward told the Portland Tribune. “It was time for a change, for me to grow and get better as a coach, to accept a new challenge.”
Sarkisian said he didn’t sleep for 48 hours as he went from firing Holt to hiring Wilcox. He also didn’t have contract details for Wilcox, who was to receive $700,000 in 2012 from Tennessee. Holt made $650,000 annually, an amount the Huskies will be on the hook for in 2012 because of a two-year contract.
“They tried, but he’s happy at Cal,” Biggins wrote. He also said, “They’re still trying, haven’t thrown the kitchen sink in yet, I guess.”
“(The mood at practice has been) good,” Bone said. “It’s not like we are embracing losses, that’s for sure. But I think our guys understand there is a big picture and we are still striving to be a better team. And we all feel like there is still growth amongst this team where we can get better and better.”
He talks about Tony Wroten and C.J. Wilcox’s health situation.
About Wroten being underappreciated.
Terrence Ross being more assertive
Washington State’s Reggie Moore.
Less than 48 hours from the hardcourt version of the Apple Cup, UW’s top two scorers were hobbling around Friday afternoon. Sixth man C.J. Wilcox has been battling a sore hip that forced him to miss Thursday’s practice, and head coach Lorenzo Romar admitted there’s a “slight chance” he might not be able to play against the Cougars on Sunday.
But Romar expects both Wilcox and Wroten to be on the floor.
