Tuesday and the wide world of WAC basketball

Didja hear the latest? The University of Vladivostok has submitted a petition to join the Pac-12. Hey, it's on the Pacific Ocean.

Plus, my cousin Kylie Anderson is headed to UCLA next year but everyone on the 'net is spelling her name incorrectly.


Anyway, Bob (Mr. Mslacat) Robinson has posted that Marcus Colbert has an offer from San Jose State and interest from Idaho, as well as others in various stages of suitorship. Colbert is a 5-foot-11 guard from a town not far from Spokane.

Here's a March 2011 description from his coach as it appeared in the Idaho Statesman:

"Marcus Colbert, Post Falls Trojans

A two-time All-Idaho first-teamer, Colbert averaged 16 ppg, 5.2 rpg and 4.9 apg. “Can get into the lane and create for himself and teammates as well as anyone in the state,” Post Falls coach Mike McLean said of the 5-foot-10 guard"

Andrew Maurins at Silver & Blue Sports offers an interesting numerical look at Nevada's basketball schedule.


Jeff Goodman has a post up on Braeden Anderson containing two money quotes, no pun intended:
"For the right situation, I'll find a way to pay this year,"
"I've had time to look into the situation and I just want to play big-time college basketball,"
He wants to be at a power school a la Kansas.


That was quick: Chad Rykhoek. a Texas prepster mentioned here yesterday in conjunction with Fresno State and many others, has gone with Baylor.
