GU roundup

Lots of Zag stuff from here and there this morning and more coming tomorrow with the S-R's college basketball section. John Blanchette wrote about Gonzaga's inexperienced backcourt and here's an update on Josh Heytvelt's career overseas. S-R alum Dave Boling previews the Zags here.

Updates on Heytvelt, Turiaf, Kong

Never thought I'd have occasion to put these three names in the same sentence, but here are updates on ex-Zags Josh Heytvelt, Ronny Turiaf and Bol Kong.

Links on Heytvelt, who left his team in Italy may be heading back to Turkey; Turiaf helping the Knicks to a big win over Portland; and Kong trying to get back on track in Canada.

Programming note: I'm putting together a feature on Mathis Keita for Thursday's Four Corners page. I'll post it later today.

Detroit takes Daye, no other Zags selected

Back with an unedited article on Austin Daye being taken by Detroit with the 15th pick of the first round. No other Zags were selected.

I tried to contact Daye and Josh Heytvelt, who was projected as a second-rounder in numerous mock drafts, but didn’t make connections. I was able to see/hear three or four Daye interviews via ESPN,, NBA TV and Detroit’s Web site.
