So Dana Altman has been on the job a whole week and already has landed a pretty nice looking recruit in Vegas point guard Jonathan Loyd. Young guy is apparently a ridiculous athlete having led his high school to back to back state titles in hoops and contributed as an elite returner for a team who made the finals. Now fans will wait to see if D.A can land another quality player. They're waiting on Dwayne Polee Jr who was the sectional player of the year at his L.A area school. The kid's dad and coach Altman have apparently known each other for about 8 years.
The baseball team has climbed to 15th in the Baseball America. They entertain Portland this evening at 7 o'clock at PK Park. The Pilots have caught fire and bring a 10 game win streak into the fray. Looks like Joey Housey will get the start for the Ducks. In many ways, he's been the most dominating arm with a dirt low .96 era, and a superb ratio of 17 strikeouts versus a mere 3 walks. Joey did not appear in the Washington State series over the weekend but versus Oregon State last week made his 1st start and tossed 3 shutout innings of 1 hit baseball. Oregon will be in Corvallis this weekend for a set with OSU.
I have a pair of tickets for tonight's game and a final pair for the Toby Keith concert on July 23rd in Clark County. Want in on the drawing? E-mail the correct answer to the following to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're all aware Oregon State won back to back baseball championships in 2006 & 2007. Who was the last Pac 10 team prior to the Beavs to win the National Title in baseball?
