The TEN: 2/23/2018

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

1. Arizona guard Allonzo Trier has been declared ineligible by the NCAA after testing positive for a banned substance. Trier is averaging over 19 points per game.

2. Larry Nance Jr. will wear his father’s number 22 for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nance Sr.’s number was retired by the Cavaliers in 1995 but the NBA worked it out so Nance Jr. can make the switch from number 24.

3. The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired outfielder Corey Dickerson from the Tampa Bay Rays for pitcher Daniel Hudson, a minor leaguer and cash.

4. Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinateri signed a one-year deal to return for his 23rd NFL season.

5. The Glendora girls basketball team is now 29-0 and will face Village Christian Saturday night in the Division 2A semi finals.

6. The Arroyo girls were eliminated in the Division 4A quarter finals by Providence 46-41 Wednesday night.

7. The U.S. Women’s hockey team beat Canada 3-2 in a shootout to capture the gold medal Wednesday night in Pyeongchang. It was the first gold medal for the U.S women since 1998.

8. LAFC will open its inaugural MLS season March 4 at home against the Seattle Sounders.

9. ” Today was my last day with the Southern California News Group. It’s been an honor to serve the readers in the SGV and Inland Empire in sports and news for 20+ years. I will miss you all, but I will still be here on Twitter.” – Long time Star News/Trib sportswriter Steve Ramirez on Twitter.

10. “My home is in heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.” – Billy Graham.

    @Lupe, sad day for local sports. They let go of Michelle Gardner out in the I.E., Abram and now Steve. It was cool to read Pete Marshall or Louie Brewster. The stories were good and coverage was amazing. Glad the mid is alive and well. But even there Joe T is now gone. Sigh. Just another sign that the apocalypse is upon us…

    Arroyo’s GBB team reached quarter-finals for 1st time since at least the early 1980’s-if ever. Also, Glendora’s girls coach, Adam Nunemaker, is a 1995 graduate of Arroyo HS, where he not only played basketball, but ran both track and XC. His picture is on the gym wall as a Golden Knight. Good Luck Coach!

    I remember when I played HS football ( a loooonng time ago ) waking up to get my Sat. morning tribune. After I became an adult I got my subscription for the same reason. I love looking over who won & who had big games. As a player they use to have running tackle & sack totals weekly. It’s sad to see it change/ go away. I once got to do a phone interview w/ Steve Hunt. Had a real live article about me in the SGV Tribune. Awesome !times.

    Wow all the guys that covered high school sports are getting let go. SGV Tribune once had many daily articles on high school sports. Youth baseball. Guess with people not subscribing they have to make cuts.

    With Ramirez exiting, it won’t be long before the SC News Group is not a group, but a single person trying to hawk papers on a street corner. I’ll be there with him, trying to find buyers for my VHS tapes.
