One more year for Sam/Brito?

Looks like spring sport senior athletes will be given another year of eligibility. NCAA looking into what to do with those that played winter sports. Would be fascinating if they offered another year of eligibility to Seniors in winter sports?? https://twitter.com/GoodmanHoops/status/123851508045681...

I'm a local. Can't make Thursday but will be there Friday and Saturday if USU advances.

Also note they are doing the pregame alumni events so plan on arriving early if interested in attending.

KAR: Aranda head coach at Baylor

Dave Aranda gets the head coaching gig at Baylor. Was some talk in December that he might take the UNLV job before they hired someone else. Baylor clearly a better job. Will be interesting to see how he does as head coach.

Re: MW Media Awards

I like Hutson and think he's a good coach, but not sure how he got one vote and that Smith wasn't unanimous? Is there a rule that prohibits the local media member from voting on their own team (i.e., the Utah State voter couldn't vote for any USU candidates)? That's the only way this makes sense.
