It's been rumored for a couple of days, but today's it's official: Gonzaga great John Stockton has been elected to the Hall of Fame, and he's joined by his former coach, Utah's Jerry Sloan. Here's S-R report and A.P. article. (Picture is from Stockton's election to the Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. He's holding son, Samual, and pictured with Jack Spring and Ed Sharman.)

I almost hesitate to post this because there's been more speculation about this job than any I can remember in a long time, but it looks like Arizona has finally found a coach. Xavier's Sean Miller. According to Foxsports.com, Miller turned down the Wildcats on Sunday night, but reversed his decision this morning. Here's a link, one more, and yet another. Here are a couple of blogs that show just how crazy this search has been: One here, other here.
