The TEN: 4/12/2017



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

1. Junior center Thomas Welsh and sophomore guard Aaron Holiday of UCLA are both declaring for the NBA draft but neither player has hired an agent leaving the door open for a possible return to college. This brings the number of UCLA players to declare to five.

2. Oregon sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey, who also played at Maranatha High School, has declared for the NBA draft and hired an agent.

3. San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher has retired. Fisher guided the Aztecs to the Sweet 16 in 2011 and they reached the NCAA tournament a school record six consecutive seasons under Fisher. Fisher led Michigan to the NCAA championship in 1989 as an interim coach.

4. Spike Dykes, who coached Texas Tech to its only Cotton Bowl appearance when the game was reserved for the Southwest Conference champion, passed away at the age of 79.

5. LA Kings HC Darryl Sutter and GM Dean Lombardi were fired Monday. Luc Robitaille was promoted to team President and Rob Blake will become vice president and GM.

6. The Los Angeles Clippers have won six straight to move into a tie with the Utah Jazz for fourth place in the Western Conference.

7. The El Monte head football coach search.

8. La Canada is a perfect 5-0 in the Rio Hondo League after a 5-0 win over Monrovia Tuesday.

9. San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Poser is on the seven day concussion DL after taking a fastball in the head Monday.

10. Under Darryl Sutter the Kings won the first championships in franchise history with Stanley Cup victories in 2012 and 2014 and made the playoffs four times during his six year tenure.

    Many games, even at big schools are sparsely attended. Many get in free so a few hundred at 6$ a head. Then you pay 5 or 6 refs 3 cops an ambulance with 2 EMT’s and school staff. Many misc. expenses so no money left to spread around. Suiting up 50 boys in pads and cool unis is pricey. That is why some schools downsizing even with free walk-on kid coaches. No way to pay coaches better money in the SGV.

    A ton of critics of coaches makes them quit, a ton of ignorant admin running the athletics depts,a ton of hours for little pennies , a distance from family that hurts their personal life , the list goes on and on,
    kids with talent will have a reason to leave their small schools, as no loyalty from schools or coaches, why should he stay? son when we hear a kid leaves, lets not bash.

    Is that LA statement true? I can only believe it because I worked in that district. Only when football is doing well and enrollment is up they get high and mighty against football. When enrollment is down and the football teams aren’t doing well then they roll out the red carpet for football to save them.

    I believe any school that gives up football will hurt their enrollment, thus hurting all the other sports down the line that depend on football . (title IX)

    Dorsey is the opposite of Lonzo Ball, showing talent and class without an overbearing father who seems intent on ruling the son’s life until he is laid to rest. Funny how scouts are able to spot ability without help from the omniscient Lavar.
