News and Notes

Not to many articles on Bluejay Basketball this week.  Just a few little things:

  • Coach Altman is keeping busy during the summer by taking part in a charity golf event with UNLV coach and former co-worker Lon Kruger.  There were several other NCAA Basketball coaches taking part in this event.  Maybe they had some good discussions in their pairings on setting up some home and home series in the future.  According to the release, it appears USC coach Tim Floyd was there as well.  I hope coach stayed well away from him!
  • Southern Illinois center Nick Evans has given the first bulletin board material of the year for the Jays.  He was participating on a 5 game tour with a Reach USA, a Christian sports ministry team in China.   Evans said he was glad to get good minutes over the summer against real competition.  Even if the plane ride is 15 hours next time, Evans said he was in.  “Put me on a plane,” he said. “Fly me to China and then fly me back, and let’s play Creighton.”  He has big shoes to fill with Matt Shaw and Randall Falker not there anymore.  Let’s see if he can walk the talk.

    Nick Evans…

    That’s funny. The kid has a little DawgieStyle in his blood. In reality – he wants no parts of the spankin’ the Jays will put on him.

    Not sure how this constitutes as Bulletin Board material but I guess this writer can’t write about anything else. This is flattery. The guy wants to get good practice in so that he can get ready for their biggest rival. As for the spanking…the Jays haven’t been on the dominating end for quite some time vs the Salukis.
