One coming and one going

With the return of Hatila Passos from suspension and the injury to Justin Graham, one WAC team has bolstered its forces even more while another just lost its most effective player.

First Herb Pope was finally declared eligible and now Passos re-joins the Aggie frontline so Coach Marvin Menzies is close to being fully loaded with his roster. NMSU just lost to Utah State 74-62 in Logan but has a homecourt rematch coming up on January 26 (scheduled to be shown on ESPN2). That contest may very well be the game of the conference this season in the WAC.

San Jose State just received about the worst news possible as redshirt freshman Justin Graham suffered a broken elbow last night in Hawaii and is out indefinitely. He is the one player the Spartans could least afford to lose being the initiator on offense. There is no one close to Graham's ability as a fill-in on the SJSU roster.
