Birch is Runnin' to UNLV

This news broke out late last night and I figured I'd post the link now. It came down to Florida and UNLV and Khem Birch, the highly prized reclassified-early-to-go-to-PItt-only-to-transfer-ten-games-later forward is heading to Las Vegas. I personally thought that he would end up at Gonzaga since his friend Kevin Pangos was already there plus the team has had NCAA Tournament success. On top of that, Coach Mark Few has had been able to turn guys into very good players. Obviously that wasn't enough and Birch is heading to the glitz and glamour of the Strip. He fits in well with the currently UNLV system of run and run and he'd likley be able to play between the four and five spots, possibly even the three if he can get his perimeter game up to snuff (don't expect that anytime soon though). The big question I have is whether he can handle the pressure there. UNLV is in a city of many distractions outside basketball and the spotlight will be intense since he's the last All American on the campus in apparently 25 years. There are rumours that Shabazz Mohammed, the highly coveted high school senior is looking favorably at UNLV now that Birch is signed so maybe this could be the turnaround that the Rebels need to get back to the top of the NCAA like they were at in the 90s with LJ, Plastic Man and company. Regardless, we wish him the best of luck here. And I don't need to remind you that it's now a sink or swim situation for him. This is his last D1 stop if he plays a game so it has to work this time.

Atlanta Journal Constitution: Polee Has Eliminated UTEP

There is so much misinformation out there, it's hard to know if this is accurate. The LA Times had UTEP in the discussion today, and now the AJC says Polee has "eliminated" UTEP. At this point, who knows? Excerpt "Polee was committed to Southern Cal as a freshman and his father, Dwayne Polee Sr., remains director of basketball operations for the Trojans. But Polee Jr. decommitted last December after Tim Floyd resigned amid an NCAA investigation at USC. Floyd subsequently recruited Polee at UTEP where he is now head coach. Polee has since eliminated the Miners."

Idaho season tickets cost more than UNLV's

I was looking through different info on Idaho for my Making the Rounds articles and noticed the season ticket prices for Idaho start at $107. UNLV has endzone season tickets for $100. It is sad that a team most wouldn't even know has higher season ticket prices than UNLV.
