The TEN: 4/5/2017



(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

1. North Carolina’s NCAA championship Monday night was its sixth overall and the third title for head coach Roy Williams.

2. Clayton Kershaw is now 5-0 on opening day with an ERA of 0.99. The Dodgers have won all seven of Kershaw’s opening day starts.

3. Former Dodger slugger Pedro Guerrero is in grave condition in a New York hospital after suffering a stroke.

4. Patrick Ewing, who led Georgetown to its only NCAA title in 1984, was named the new head coach of the Hoyas.

5. Russell Westbrook ties Oscar Robertson’s single season NBA record with his 41st triple-double in Oklahoma City’s 110-79 win over Milwaukee.

6. “Today I was engaged in that other national pastime, paying bills.” – Vin Scully on Monday.

7. UCLA opened spring football practice Tuesday.

8. Kentucky freshman guard De’Aaron Fox declares for the NBA draft.

9. “It’s bad enough seeing pumpkin beers and fun size candies on shelves in August, and tinsel and Christmas ornaments being pushed by stores on a 100 degree September day. Do we really have to deal with weak-sauce pranks in late March, too?” – MVS Commenter “Holiday Creep.”

10. On this day in 1984 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar breaks Wilt Chamberlain’s all-time career scoring record of 31,419 points in a 129-115 win over Utah at the Thomas and Mack at UNLV.

    If it’s true, J Knight and Oliva to Rosemead could really elevate the league. Going into the season it’s Arroyo then SEM and everyone else. With those two coaches heading up programs I’m not so sure anymore. I know Arroyo will be there but those three teams could beat eachother.

    Not entirely sure if the rumor is true about Josh leaving for EM. If it is id like to be the first to wish him all the best. EM you are getting a quality coach who work tirelessly to take your program to respectability. Jude to Rosemead? I doubt it

    Gallardo got lucky, the dude is a total fraud. He got lucky and got a great RB and good class and Mike mooney. And before you give him credit for hiring his staff, most of those guys are not there because of him. This is a bad hire by EM, but your right if he gets a great staff he’ll be ok. It’s not likely to happen tho.

    It’s a serious roll of the dice when you hire a coach with no head coaching experience. Every head coach was once a new coach. You just never know how it’ll turn out. But in EM case you had no interest in your case you’re lucky to get a guy from a quality program. Maybe it can work out for you the way it with SEM, Gallardo was a position coach and made the jump. But he hired a couple top notch assistants so if Knight can do the same he might be able to light a fire there. Even better if he can take some of those Arroyo assistants with him. That staff is loaded boy.

    He is a position coach only, with no head coaching experience. I think with McMillan, Knight, Rivera and Bueno the offensive side of the ball at Arroyo was just too crowded for him.

    I’m not too familiar with Josh Knight… what position did he coach for Arroyo?
    Those of you who know him is this a good hire for EM?

    @MVLknight 99, if what you say is true? Josh you need to stay away from Sanchez, he’s a cancer.

    Not a good move; the last name alone should have made this guy an Arroyo coach for life.

    Wilt’s scoring record was surpassed only because the Dipper’s coaches told him to make more assists, and because Jabbar stayed in the league long enough to develop an enlarged prostate. His hook shot was nice, but his rebounding was incredibly meager for a man of his size. Then there’s the matter of that farewell tour: outside of the Lebron ‘decision’ show and Lavar Ball’s mouth, few things have been more embarrassing to the sporting world.
