Nike tries to change summer youth basketball


A couple of Oregonian stories worth checking out:

Nike has unveiled a new model for summer youth basketball, one that will change how the summer season is run.

Why? Because Nike has so much power and influence among the club coaches in this country.

Keep your eyes and ears open about this change. It will affect your kids and/or grandkids.


The Oregon women’s soccer team was passed over by the NCAA – like WSU – but the Ducks, who finished second in the Pac-10, suffered the worst injustice in the sport this season. The NCAA gave its reasons here.
