Thursday's WAC basketball report

Per Tony Jones, Utah State has landed a junior college verbal: 6-foot-8 Sean Harris out of Coach Doug Cornelius' ultra-successful Yuba College program based in northern California.

By the way, Yuba had five all-conference players last season including one that moved on to Minnesota and another who landed at Idaho.

Here's a note from when Harris signed a letter-of-intent with Coach Les and Bradley in 2010.

Here's a July 2011 post all about Harris returning to the court from his LDS mission.


Bob (Mslacat) Robinson plus this link too sent along information about Trey Dickinson.

Dickinson is a 6-foot-1 guard at Price High in Los Angeles but originally from NY. Montana State has offered (he'll visit October 1) plus he will be scheduling a sojourn to San Diego State. Fresno State fans will be interested in these items:

"2012 point guard Trey Dickerson of Price High School (Cal.) spoke with Fresno State tonight"
"Fresno State coming to see me monday"
Dickerson totaled 18 points and 6 assists a game last year when he was at Montclair High (the school subsequently dropped athletics).

Here's Dickinson's Twitter account.

Here's a feature on him from August 26.


Hawaii's basketball scheduled has been freed -- Dayton Morinaga offers the details.


Was this said tongue-in-cheek or in front of a mirror? In the August 1 issue of Sports Illustrated, Tennessee Coach Derek Dooley, who worked as both football coach and athletic director at Louisiana Tech from 2007-2009, was quoted saying: "The best athletic director I ever worked for was at Louisiana Tech." 


Just throwing this in for fun: Anthony Ray (a Rivals sub is required) has posted a feature on two big in the Arizona community college ranks. One is Matt Korcheck/Cochise College who had USU interest some time back and the other, is Arizona Western's Renan Lenz, a native of Brazil. Might Hawaii be checking out the latter? Ray says both are now high major prospects.
