Two Bruins in the news

The New York Times reported today that Sidney Wicks is among eight members elected to the 2010 class of the National Collegiate Basketball hall of Fame.  He's in pretty good company, including one I love--Jerry West--and two I don't particularly like, David Thompson and Christian Laettner.  Sidney was one of my favorite Bruins, a point forward before that position existed, a great defender (take that, Ardis Gilmore!), and a reliable last-second shot taker.  One of the greatest games I ever saw was a UCLA against the world exhibition in which Sidney matched Dr J shot for shot and move for move.  Congrats to Si Wicks.

The Times also reported that Lauren Cheney's goal helped lead the U.S. soccer team to a 2-0 win over Iceland in the Algarve Cup in Portugal, one of the most important tournaments in women's international soccer.  Lauren was a star for four years at UCLA, and I look forward to a long and successful international career from her.
