Just another ordinary day in June …
Actually, not really. I’ll keep this quick, but a couple of notes to pass along:
+ Kyle Neddenriep of The Indianapolis Star is reporting that North Central guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera will not transfer to St. Benedict’s Prep. This, if you haven’t been following the story, is good news because former assistant Roshown McLeod is running the show at St. Ben’s.
+ The momentum for Tom Izzo to the Cleveland Cavaliers continues to pick up steam. Citing sources (surprise!), ESPN is reporting that if Cavs owner Dan Gilbert offers the position, Izzo is likely to take it. This seems like a huge career gamble for Izzo if he’s not guaranteed that LeBron will return (and he’s not), but the opportunity to coach at the next level and work for Gilbert apparently has him intrigued.
+ The Indiana Junior all-stars, led by Marquis Teague and Cody Zeller, knocked off the All-Stars in an exhibiton game at Rushville. Mike Pegram has a free game-wrap (link) with some quotes from Zeller.
+ The Pac-10 officially announced that Colorado will join the conference, making the Buffaloes the first new member since 1978. Goodbye, Big 12.
Happy Thursday, everyone.
