Yup, that's an easy one.

Until recently, Crisshawn's lower leg was in a cast and he was getting around on a scooter.

The cast was recently removed, the scooter has been returned to the medical supply store, and Crisshawn was cleared for limited practice just prior to the Florida A&M game.

Prior to that, both the scooter and Crisshawn were considered "immovable objects" that if smashed into by one of the on-court players (or referees) could have caused injury to both Crisshawn and the other sprawled player.

(I believe Crisshawn was to be cleared for "contact" drills beginning this week.)

I forget... after all of his travels and travails, has Clark ever actually played in a regular season DI game?

Nope, not a one, just the 2014-15 full season at Canada College in California....

. followed by a medical redshirt year at Canada, then injured in a preseason game at Pitt he got another medical redshirt, and then while transfer redshirting and rehabbing at UP he was injured again just prior to the current season.

Crisshawn graduates in May, and only he knows what he wants to do after that, but conceivably he could play this season and two more before running out of eligibility. He graduated from high school in 2014, and with enough NCAA waivers could play until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Talk about senior leadership, Crisshawn will turn 26 years-old during his final year of eligibility...

Nevada and Jazz Johnson lost their first game tonight, at New Mexico 85-58. UNM did not have a good pre-conference, going 7-6, but got a huge win in conference.

In the late games,
SMC beat BYU 88-66
USD beat UOP 69-57

USF was the only WCC road team to win today. For the opening weekend on WCC play, home teams went 7-2.

Claiming he's not nervous about his first-ever D1 game, Crisshawn expects to be cleared to play prior to the BYU game on Thursday, and may "get in a few minutes" of action.

Far from being in "game shape," it will be nice if he can get up a few shots or make a steal or even commit a foul, just so he can feel a part of the team again like he did before his preseason ankle injury and surgery.

I have yet to find a way to listen to the "Terry Porter Show" without listening to it live, but in the estimation of many, Coach Bob Cantu is always a very good interview and tells it like it is....

In this interview from last Friday, on "Marching to Madness," Coach Cantu gives his assessment of the Pilots and the WCC, and talks a little about Theo, Crisshawn, and Jacob.

Thanks for the interview, DD. Unsurprisingly, Cantu feels that losing both Clark & Tryon for extended periods of time has really hampered this team. The next few games will be very interesting to evaluate with Tryon now healthy and as Crisshawn (hopefully) gets into game shape.

I thought I heard him say at one point that Crisshawn was actually cleared for the LMU game? I might have misheard though.

Yeah, I guess he was in uniform at LMU as part of his "getting back into the game," but apparently there was never any plans for him to actually play...

He'll get some minutes in Provo!

The Marriott Center is quite a venue to make one's DI debut! It will be great to see him take the floor.

It was a thriller at Santa Clara tonight as the Broncos downed PU, 67-64, after a PU player fouled a SCU player taking a wild 3-point shot with 1.5 seconds left and the game tied. All three free throws were made and PU put up a 65 footer that bounced off the rim...game over.

GU smothered UOP in Spokane, 67-36, but UOP played very aggressive defense that held the Zags well below their season average of 92 ppg.

Today is a sorting day. All games feature teams with similar WCC records.
PU @ USD, both are 1-1
SCU @ BYU, both are 2-1
GU @ USF, both are 2-0, 7pm PT, ESPN2
SMC @LMU, both are 1-1, statement opportunity for LMU
UOP at UP, 0-3 vs 0-2.

Also, home teams went 3-0 Thursday, now 10-2 for season.

Excellent 37 minutes of back-and-forth basketball...GU knows how to close-out a game!

Shame on USF fans for not filling War Memorial for their excellent Dons team. Way too many in-your-face GU fans chanting, We - Are - GU, over and over. I can understand why the Chiles Center may be inundated by GU fans, but USF is a very good team worthy of a home court advantage.

Forgot to look for this. Here are the power rankings heading into this weeks' games. wcc-power-rankings.

There won't be much change this coming week.

The WCC Power Rankings are out: wcc-power-rankings

If you don't care to read about the good things other teams are doing, here's the report on the Pilots:
The least efficient offense, most turnover prone offense, worst offensive rebounding team and worst free-throw shooting team in conference play? The Portland Pilots.
Is it better on the defensive end? Kind of. Portlands not the least efficient defensive team in the WCC. Theyre the second-least efficient defensive team.
No need to say where we stand in the rankings.
