Wednesday's WAC hoops digest

Anthony Esparza writes about New Mexico State's path forward.


Per Adam Zagoria, it was between DePaul, New Mexico State, Auburn and Iona for big Norvel Pelle and he went with the latter.


Andy Glockner at SI lists his choice for must-watch non-conference battles and among his picks are:

18. Saint Mary's at Utah State (Nov. 15)

Sooooo tempted to try to get to this game in person. It's an enormous chance for a maturing USU squad to signal its intent in its farewell season in the WAC. Love to see great regional matchups between top mids. Also a matchup that has two of the guys who look the least like lethal basketball killers in Matthew Dellavedova and Preston Medlin.


25. San Jose State at New Orleans (Nov. 9)

After years of post-Katrina decline, a two-year dalliance with a drop from Division I athletics and a switch from the Louisiana State system to the University of Louisiana system, the Privateers have decided to stay in D-I. Good for them and good luck helping rebuild the school and reconnecting with the city.


The Inside RunnersSports folks have posted that 6-foot-8 in-state frontcourter Tavario Miller has an offer from Texas San Antonio.
