Is there equal excitement with the signing of Deng Dut from Simonds in Melbourne, or is there more of a personal attachment to Zach?

What about UC Riverside beating Washington, HUGE, the Aussies having a massive influence, big Jock Perry 21 pts, Freshman Will Tattersell, 24 minutes, 6 points 2 from 9, amazing when the coaches have a bit of faith, and Will is not in Zachs class, that was a great win. Basketballers not athletes

D's decision not to play this season is not a surprise as he has not been with the team this fall while dealing with personal issues, and although he is still a part of the program, his return next year is uncertain.

Guess this explains the "personal issues"

Ali said he’s fine with being one of the voices on this team, especially after returning senior forward Tahirou Diabate — the team’s most experienced player — opted out last month, shortly after becoming a father.

“He didn’t want to put his kid in danger,” Ali said. “It was very reasonable. We all supported his decision.”

Um, yea, the mother of his child, his girlfriend, was also a student-athlete at UP before graduating.
