Wednesday mish mash

I feel kind of “hungover,” so to speak, from yesterday.


Top undrafted prospects.

The top draft picks are ready to become the faces of the league.

Arizona’s Davellyn Whyte discusses being drafted.


The lawsuit against Connecticut Coach Geno Auriemma has been dismissed, and an appeal has been filed.

Something fishy?

SDSU’s Beth Burns retires unexpectedly:

In a sudden, unexpected, even bizarre announcement, San Diego State women’s basketball coach Beth Burns retired Tuesday, just eight months after signing a five-year contract.

SDSU issued a seven-paragraph release at 2:32 p.m. with no prior warning that included bland statements from Burns and Athletic Director Jim Sterk. It named Jualeah Woods as interim head coach while Sterk conducts “a national search” to replace the winningest coach in program history.

By late afternoon, Burns was no longer listed as head coach on the Aztecs web site and her bio had been removed.

An athletic department official said Woods, assistant coaches and players would not be made available to the media. Burns was unavailable for comment, and Sterk declined further comment.
