Pony Exce$$ 2: The Electric Boogaloo
Okay, not quite. This time, it's SMU Men's Basketball and academic improprieties.
There a is story on ESPN that Kings want to "dump" Nik. Kings is not the best situation for him (he is averaging less than 4 points a game) as he is not used to coming off the bench, and his minutes have remained low. I hope he lands at a place where he can start and gain his mojo back.
Over at UMHoops today they had a feature summarizing the progress of former Michigan basketball players in the NBA. (link)
That got me thinking about other former players who are playing professionally in other leagues. While pondering the creation of a Diary to summarize these guys I started my search at www.euroleague.net and on the front page there is a special feature on Brent Petway. It is mostly fluff, but as a former fan favorite and it being a slow sports day I thought I'd post it here:
The Maize Rage and Nik Stauskas are doing a cool thing:
If you ever wanted to buy one of those Maize and Blue Canadian flags (signed by Stauskas!!), you can grab one on eBay, with half of the money going to charity (The Toronto Heart and Stroke Foundation). They are being sold on Ebay here:
Last time I checked, there weren't many left, so don't wait too long get on it!
Edit: The items are now sold out!! Congratulations if you got one.
