Morning Five: 11.18.09 EditionPosted by rtmsf on November 18th, 2009
- Minnesota freshman Royce White might be looking to plead out of his legal problems arising out of an incident with a security guard at the Mall of America. What this means for his future with Tubby Smith’s team? Status unclear.
- These comments were never going to end well for Mississippi State junior forward Kodi Augustus. The repentant player will miss Thursday’s game against SE Louisiana and Saturday’s game against Bethune-Cookman. Surely MSU will be ok.
- Purdue’s incumbent point guard, Lewis Jackson, who was already suspended for a variety of reasons, injured his foot last week and had surgery to repair the problem today. He’s officially listed as out indefinitely but Boiled Sports believes it will be for a month or more.
- Your Big West Championship is moving across Anaheim from the Convention Center to the Honda Center. Get your tickets now.
- Isiah Thomas got his first collegiate win at FIU last night. Yes, it was against NAIA school Florida Memorial, and yes it was only by six points (88-82), but a win is a win, and as Isiah said afterwards, “you start wondering if you’re ever going to win a game. I told the guys at halftime, ‘I don’t care how we win. I just want to win the game, go home, rub my dog, wake up in the morning and see the sun.” Mmm-hmmmmmm.
