SID’s JOTTINGS

 

Rarely does our state have even one player perform in the McDonald’s All-American Game, the premier high school basketball all-star game in the country. However, this year’s game will have three from the Twin Cities: Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones will play for the East and DeLaSalle’s Reid Travis and former Cooper athlete Rashad Vaughn are on the West. Travis has committed to Stanford and Jones to Duke. Vaughn will announce his college choice this week, although unfortunately the Gophers are not being considered.

 

Gophers coach Richard Pitino had 6-10 Senegal-born Abdoulaye Gueye, who is playing in Alabama, and Dujuan Piper of Seattle at the Indiana game on Saturday. Piper has offers from a number of schools, including Southern California, Washington and Washington State. Gueye has offers from Auburn, Texas Tech, Memphis and Tennessee.

 

Sunday, the third-ranked Gophers wrestling team faces No. 1 Penn State at the Sports Pavilion. Coach J Robinson believes that if the Gophers win this match, they might have a good chance to win the national title and rank with the best teams Robinson has coached in his 28 years here.

 

Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reported that Vikings tackle Matt Kalil has been granted the Pieology Pizzeria franchise for the whole state of Minnesota and plans to make this area his home year-round with his involvement in the operation of several restaurants.

 

• Justin Morneau is going back to wearing No. 33 with Colorado, even though the number is retired for Larry Walker. Morneau’s boyhood idol, Walker gave the former Twins star permission to wear it.

 

Tommy Hannon, who played basketball at St. Thomas and is a St. Paul native, has signed a one-year contract with the Goldfield Giants, a semiprofessional squad in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Australia.
