When players have left Gonzaga's program over the years -- and there have been plenty of them -- 95 percent of the comments I hear are from Zags fans worried that the player will turn into a star elsewhere and come back to haunt GU.

That wasn't the case with Demetri Goodson. "Meech" left basketball, and opted to play football at Baylor. I caught up with Goodson last week and here's an article that ran in Tuesday's S-R. He's from a football family, older brother Mike is with the Raiders, a younger brother is just finishing up at Klein Collins High and is being recruiting by Big 12 schools, and a half-brother left Georgia and is finishing up as a safety at South Carolina State. Goodson, as always, was up front, saying he felt his best chance for future earnings was in football, not basketball.

--Ex-Zag Adam Morrison has another shot at making an NBA roster. He'll go to training camp with Portland.

--The Old Spice Classic comes in sixth in a ranking of 10 college hoop tournaments.
