This looks like it will be a fun tournament. I wonder if we will get to play Memphis again?

Also, Demetrius Walker committed to USC.

Junipero Serra’s Demetrius Walker became the newest member of the 2009 USC recruiting class this past weekend, after he informed Head Coach Tim Floyd of his decision to join the Trojans.

“I committed to Coach Floyd over the phone,” Walker said. “I’d been down to the campus two or three times and really liked it. I felt like USC was the right place for me to be.”

As a middle schooler, Walker was unfairly labeled the “next LeBron James.” He had the size, speed and athleticism to do whatever he wanted on the court. He was destined for the NBA at age 11 and profiled by Sports Illustrated at 14. But when the hype didn’t meet the production during his first two years of high school, the criticism came fast and furious. He was labeled a bust as a freshman and saw his name continue to slide down the national rankings as a sophomore.

Great news about Demetrius we welcome him and wish him the best when he gets here. As always my disclaimer is that I will believe it when the LOI is signed.
