Area Happenings

Some happenings in the San Antonio basketball scene:

  • ESPN has named UTSA as one of the 64 teams to watch next season.While #60 is a far cry from being in the Top 25, it still means that UTSA is being expected to be one of the better teams in the Nation next year. Consider that NCAA Division 1 basketball has well over 300 teams.

  • Rumor has it that Smithson Valley's new Girls Basketball coach is Nancy Walling. Walling is fresh off of a State Final Four appearance as the coach for Phlugerville High School.

  • Reagan Rattler and Lady Rohawk, Alicia Houston, recently signed a Letter of Intent to attend Midwestern State University on a full basketball scholarship. Houston gave an earlier commitment to Texas A & M International but apparently had a change of heart. Congrats

  • Speaking of the Lady Rohawks, they reportedly went 9 for 9. All 9 of the Lady Rohawks 2009 graduates will play next year in college. Their signees include:

Three Division 1 players( Kansas, South Alabama, West Point)

Three Division 2 players(Midwestern St., St Mary's, Eastern New Mexico)

One Division 3 player(Schreiner)

Two Jr. College players(North Eastern Oklahoma A&M, Lon Morris)
