Injuries, looking to tomorrow’s games

College items:

Alabama’s Ericka Russell has been granted a medical disqualification for previous knee injuries, ending the senior’s college career.

Oklahoma has lost starting forward Joanna McFarland indefinitely. She had surgery Monday for a broken jaw.

The Washington schools are in Northern California for Pac-12 play. Washington State’s loss record against Stanford dates back to 1983 – 52 games ago.

Texas A&M beat Missouri tonight, and gave Coach Gary Blair his 200th win.

#15 Louisville is unbeaten at home.

Missouri guard Bailey Gee uses music to fend off stress.

Vol news:

Tomorrow is the Tennessee-LSU showdown (and I know two UCLA fans who will be there). The Vols, reeling from injuries, will have to dig deep for a win.

Nikki Caldwell says she’s committed to LSU and isn’t looking to be Tennessee’s next coach. She says associate head coach Holly Warlick has a resume that more closely matches Coach Pat Summitt’s.


Sources say three assistant coaches for this summer’s Olympic games have been named, and are Marynell Meadors, Doug Bruno and Jennifer Gillom. Interesting combination.
