News On The Horizon 7/8/2011

Morning Five: 07.07.11 Edition--Rush The Court

Most of the attention in the US for the U-19 World Championships has been on Team USA and its college stars, but as Luke Winn reports college fans may want to start paying attention to the Australian team as several of their players may be heading to college campuses near you in the very near future. While some schools (St. Mary’s) dominated the Australian recruiting scene in recent years, the players have started to shift their focus to other schools and Winn reports the current favorites for the present group of Australian star U-19 players are Butler, Boise State, and New Mexico.

Then we got in Marks’ mother’s 2002 Lexus and headed to Milwaukee, where we walked into the gym at the NY2LA Sports event around 8 a.m.

It was then that Marks realized they had switched the schedule – and the player we had rushed to see for an 8:15 a.m. game was actually playing an hour later.

There were literally a handful of coaches in attendance when we got there – and Marks and Drake’s Mark Phelps were the only D-1 head men in the building.

The building slowly began to fill up with coaches – nearly all of them of the low-major, mid-major and even of the Division 2 and Division 3 variety.

There were even a few more head coaches that showed – Mike Young (Wofford), Brian Wardle (Green Bay), Rob Jeter (Milwaukee), Tim Jankovich (Illinois State) and Kerry Keating (Santa Clara).
