Saturday's WAC basketball roundup

The folks at USU Stats flesh out the Gossner Classic opponents for Utah State. Can't speak much about Nicholls State but UC Davis will be a darkhorse. They are also the Aggies and probably a year away from being a real threat to Utah State. Davis Coach Jim Les nabbed a player from Utah in this recruiting go-around and are going after another, hence the visit.


Fresno State Associate Head Coach Jerry Wainwright is departing. It will be fascinating who Rodney Terry brings in -- another seasoned guy or someone younger with a recruiting rep.


Josh Gershon reported: "2014 forward Fatai Eke from East Bakersfield (Calif.) picked up offers from San Jose State, Cal State Bakersfield and Cal State Northridge"

He's 6-foot-7, 205 and posted these intriguing stats last season: 9.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 5.2 blocked shots per game. One recent descirption of him at Hoopniks: "While Eke isn’t there offensively yet, he’s a tough and strong defensive presence with a nose for blocking shots. Eke is physically mature and has a motor."


Max McCombs has more on UTEP transfer Michael Perez and his consideration of Nevada.
