EAGLES, INDIANS, HOOPFEST, COLLEGE BASKETBALL • UPDATED: 2:15 P.M.
Eastern Washington may – or may not – name a new basketball coach today. If you're interested, check Dave Trimmer's blog regularly for updates.
UPDATE: Dave has some info on his blog and in this story, including the news Washington assistant Jim Shaw has withdrawn his name from the search. Which usually means he wasn't the choice, though I have no inside information that was the case this time.
• How good will the Spokane Indians be? Who knows. It all depends on who will be assigned here. That process began Wednesday, when Texas assigned the 26 players who will play in Spokane. The season starts Tuesday.
• If you are a Hoopfest aficionado, you may have run into Milt Rowland at the event. He's one of the 3-on-3 tournament's long-standing volunteers.
• Former GU coach Dan Monson has a familiar face with him at Cal State Long Beach. It's also a familiar one to WCC basketball fans.
• Here's a piece on a great shooting high school junior Mark Few is trying to lure to Spokane.
