Sunday: links and more

Here's your chance to vote for Wendell McKines as Player-of-the-Month. C'mon, make it two-in-a-row.


Teddy Feinberg looks at other conference possibilities for New Mexico State's non-football sports. The WCC is never going to happen so save your candles and prayer beads on that one.


A Westwind (AZ) Prep tweet: "PITT, Western Illinois and Utah State attends WPA workouts this week" 

Don't know if USU is looking for this year or next.


A Marc J. Spears tweet: "Hope Dave Wojcik good choice for . Passed on Eric Musselman,Travis Decuire, Rick Croy, Jean Prioleau, Jim Cleamons, Steve Barnes"

Barnes, currently the Director of Player Personnel at Colorado State, coached the Spartans from 1999-2002.


Below is the official SJSU 2013-14 roster: 

* David Andoh, F, 6-foot-7, 200, sophomore

* D.J. Brown, G, 6-foot-2, 185, junior

* Chris Cunningham, F, 6-foot-9, 240, senior

Louis Garrett, F, 6-foot-6, 215, senior

* Nick Grieves, G, 6-foot-3, 160, junior (walk-on)      

* Stephon Smith, F, 6-foot-8, 260, junior       

* Mike VanKirk, C, 7-foot-1, 240, sophomore

* Jaleel Williams, F, 6-foot-6, 215, junior

This makes it appear that up to six scholarships will be available to Coach Dave Wojcik and the guard spots are bare but for Brown. Center Alex Brown and guard Xavier Jones had another season of eligibility remaining but are no longer listed.


They play rough in LA -- the opening line to Bill Plaschke's column on Steve Alford's hiring at UCLA: "He has a rock-star image with an opening-act resume."
