things that make you go hmmm

-- The AP's Donna Tommelleo pens a must-read about Sudanese import Deng Gai. Having once interned at a UNHCR refugee camp in northern Kenya, on the border of Sudan, I can began to understand the obstacles Gai, currently a senior at Fairfield, has overcome to become a potential NBA player.

-- Lute Olson believes Pac-10 Player of the Year honors should be awarded based solely on a player's statistics in conference play rather than his performance throughout a team's entire schedule. Norm Frauenheim of the Arizona Republic explains how Lute's interesting proposal benefits Salim Stoudamire at the expense of Ike Diogu. Olson, however, admits that any way you slice it, Diogu is currently the best of the west.

-- The Anchorage Daily News picks up Caulton Tudor's column for the Raleigh News & Observer arguing North Carolina State should not fire Herb Sendek at season's end. Tudor estimates Sender has shown himself to be a good, not great, coach. I agree, adding that the Wolfpack could do a lot worse than Herb. In a tough ACC, lesser coaches would fail to lead N.C. State to the NCAA Tournament.

-- Is no news regarding Daniel Horton good news? Or bad news?
