So much news this week

The USA Basketball pictures and interviews keep rolling in. In the meantime, Assistant Coach Jennifer Gillom is apparently not letting Geno override the ship.

In Indianapolis today, a huge crowd of fans showed up at the airport to welcome the Indiana Fever home from Phoenix, where they defeated the Mercury last night. Apparently, tickets to game three on Sunday are selling fast.

When I interviewed the Sparks’ Betty Lennox back in June for a story I was doing, she mentioned she would be inducted into the Trinity Valley Community College Hall of Fame in the fall. Well, it’s fall, and the ceremony is Saturday. Congrats, Betty.

Finally, Lady Vol Amber Gray will return to Knoxville and the University of Tennessee in two weeks after undergoing brain surgery in July. Gray said she welcomes the second chance to play, and in light of the end of Tierra Rogers’ career, those words have new weight.
