Some basketball news from around the globe


Thanks to alert readers, we have a link to a release about Washington State’s first game on the Down Under tour. The Cougars won in New Zealand behind the 20 points of Derrick Low. It’s now on to Australia.

• As Dave Trimmer first reported on his blog, former Eastern Washington basketball coach Steve Aggers is no longer interested in the position.

• The Spokane RiverHawks have made a lot of changes over the offseason, with the college summer baseball team changing owners, head coaches and home fields. Steve Bergum has all the info in this story.

• The NCAA Track and Field Championships opened Wednesday in Sacramento and more than a handful of local athletes advanced through the preliminaries.


• Mike Vlahovich looks back at the prep year that was in his column and this story. The successes of local schools look pretty impressive when listed like this.

• The prep all-star season is upon us, with this notebook in the Times detailing a few from that side of the state.


FYI, I’m off to Washington State to get my bearings a little bit, so the posts today may be few and far between. At some point I want to check the baseball draft, but we’ll see. It’s tough to drive 195 and blog at the same time – I’m pretty sure the legislature has banned that practice.
