A couple of notes to pass along while waiting for a return call from Austin Daye.
Read on for more.
—It’s hardly breaking news, but the WCC is virtually certain to re-up with The Orleans in Las Vegas as the site for the conference basketball tournaments. WCC director of communications Jae Wilson said the league was pleased with the 2009 tournaments at The Orleans and expects a multi-year deal to be announced in late June or early July. Details are still being worked out.
GU athletic director Mike Roth expressed similar sentiments last week.
—You knew these articles were in the works when Los Angeles and Orlando advanced to the NBA Finals. Ex-Zag Adam Morrison (Lakers) is a spectator and ex-Blue Devil J.J. Redick (Magic) didn’t get on the floor Tuesday night as the championship series plays out. More here, here and here.
—Daye is getting close to decision time. He has until Monday to decide if he’ll stay in the NBA Draft or remove his name and return to GU for his junior season. Most reports have speculated that he’ll stay in the draft, but he hasn’t made a formal announcement. He’s pegged as a first-round pick (mid to late) in most mock drafts.
We’ll let you know what he’s thinking, if the phone rings.
