Friday and the return of actual WAC hoops news

The Chris Udofia Bandwagon was started yesterday and now has another member.


Since PTW is writing about Basketball Prospectus, it would be remiss not to mention that Preston Medlin was at the #100 spot. These rankings are based on last year's performances.


USA Basketball has 22 players in camp and one of them is Fresno State signee Robert Upshaw. The Draft Express folks are predicting he makes the team (12 man roster) and have written this: "Inside the paint, there is no shortage of size, girth, length and athleticism, but we haven't seen one big man emerge as a reliable back to the basket presence as of yet. Robert Upshaw has tried to fill that role at times, and has had some success at times, while the likes of Robert Carter and Shaq Goodwin have preferred to float to the perimeter and shoot jumpers instead."


Alex Kline/The Recruit Scoop has the latest on 6-foot-3 shooting guard Mike Perez: "Nevada had UTEP transfer Michael Perez on campus today, he announced"


Jason Groves has been a-tweetin':

"McKinley Boston said the school and head hoops coach Marvin Menzies are still in contract talks"

Gotta nail him down -- bball is the best thing NMSU has going 


"2012 C Norvel Pelle will take his next official visit to DePaul per , Pelle had a "really good" visit to NMSU last weekend"

Has a recruit ever come back and said (not thought): "No way in hell I'm ever going back there." Pelle would be a great get even if he likely can't play next season. MM is working it.
