I missed this, but Eric Mika has declared for the NBA and is going pro.

A local BYU grad tells me that Eric Mika and his wife, Gabrielle, expect him to get a pretty lucrative contract offer to play in Italy, a place they have previously lived and like so much they might opt to go there instead of the NBA unless it's a very good deal to stay home.

Could be the "grind" finally got to him, but BYU Assistant Head Coach Terry Nashif is leaving the program to "pursue business opportunities.

Nashif joined the staff as director of operations when Dave Rose was hired as head coach in 2005. He was named an assistant coach in 2007 and in 2016 was promoted to assistant head coach.

Nashif played at BYU from 2001-05.

A native of Vancouver, Washington, Jordan completed his two year mission in Taipei then redshirted a year at BYU before finally seeing some court action last year as a point guard.

The thing is, in those two years, and I'm guessing he got some schooling on his mission, he's earned his degree in Asian Studies at BYU and has been accepted into law school.

It's an unusual situation....with three years of eligibility left, but with his degree in hand, maybe he should just consider transferring to UP and not worry about losing a year of eligibility.....just saying.   Cool

Turns out the BYU law school wouldn't let him play basketball.

Yeah, I'd heard that.  Turns out he doesn't go to law school at Boston College either, but is getting his MBA while playing in all 32 games and is the third leading scorer on the team with 8.6 per game.

Some may remember this once young man from his time in Portland....

I will say this, BYU needs to shore up its defense, and Schroyer could be the guy to do it.

On April 28th it was announced that:

1. Junior SG Davin Guinn is leaving the team to attend BYU Law School.
2. Freshman SG Steven Beo is transferring and will have 3 years eligibility.
3. Redshirt Junior F, and former UNLV player, Jamal Aytes has graduated and will transfer with immediate eligibility.

All averaged just over 2 points per game last season at BYU.

All-WCC point guard Nick Emery left the basketball team and BYU....at least for this coming season.

Apparently a pending NCAA investigation into his possible relationship with a booster and his recent divorce are weighing on his mind and he's not capable of playing anywhere near his potential or close to his previous performances at BYU.
