Difference maker for EWU men’s basketball: Venky Jois

All those rebounds that left Reese Court at the end of last season? The Eagles expect Venky Jois to get more than his share. The freshman from Australia is “extremely athletic and a jumping machine,” EWU head coach Jim Hayford said.


Difference maker

A case could be made for anybody in the starting five or Przemek Karnowski, who came off the bench in Gonzaga’s exhibition game, but Gary Bell Jr. is perhaps the bigger difference maker at both ends of the court. The 6-foot-1 sophomore from Kent, Wash., joined Kevin Pangos to form one of the top backcourts on the West Coast last season. Bell averaged 10.4 points and drained 52.3 percent of his 3-point attempts in conference games and nearly 48 percent for the season. Bell, a 74 percent free-throw shooter, also contributed 2.5 rebounds and 2 assists.

A tall tale

The plane landed at Geiger Field about a quarter to 7 on an August evening, and the passengers all smartly ducked their heads exiting through the side door. Except George Trontzos, who more or less jackknifed out of the aircraft.
