Running Vols will meet GU in Seattle


The Battle in Seattle should be filled with firepower.

Though neither Tennessee nor Gonzaga have officially announced it, those two schools are set to meet in the annual game Dec. 29, according to the organizers.

The funny part about it is the Tennessee media outlets have been left scrambling a little bit, with this story crediting KHQ-TV in Spokane, and this one KHQ in Seattle.

• A former Bulldog seems to have finally landed. Pierre Marie Altidor-Cespedes will play at Marshall University this season, granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA under an old rule. For one year, if an athlete graduated early and had eligibility left, the athlete could transfer in Division I football and basketball and not have to sit out a year. The rule was rescinded, but P-Mac was grandfathered in by the NCAA.


• The Shock travel to Fresno, Calif., tonight (7; 105.7-FM) to face Central Valley with first place in the af2 West on the line. Jessica Brown not only advances tonight’s game with this story, she has more on her Shock blog.


• Well, if you are going to lose, it’s not as bad if a hometown guy beats you with a home run, is it? I guess you could ask the Indians, who fell 6-1 to Tri-City on Friday night, in large part because former Shadle Park High and Gonzaga University third baseman Darin Holcomb hit a three-run home run.

My guess is it doesn’t matter. A loss is a loss.


• I’m headed down to Hoopfest in a few hours, so if you have some games or courts you want me to check out, leave a message in the comments and I’ll try to get there.
