I miss July already:
The SDSU men’s basketball team has suffered another injury, true freshman post Logan Doyle going down in the final days of the summer session. Coach Scott Nagy said that the severity isn’t known, but that the knee injury increases the (already decent) likelihood that Doyle will redshirt.
However, the previously injured Matt Donlan and Skyler Flatten are said to be ahead of schedule. Nagy thinks that Flatten should be ready to go by the official start of practice.
The SDSU baseball team got on the board for 2014 recruit last week by landing Anthony Schneider, a shortstop at Southeast Polk in Iowa. The 6-foot, 180-pounder answered the standard “Why did you choose SDSU?” question rather interestingly.
"Just the growth so far," he said. "All the construction that was going on when I visited was so positive. The development that’s coming with the indoor practice facility breaking ground soon was big for me. Development means money coming into the university and growth as a student body."
Schneider, who considers quick hands and speed to be his strengths, will play in the Perfect Game fall league instead of going out for football.
As I wrote on Twitter on Saturday, HoopsWorld has added ex-SDSU star and new Milwaukee Bucks guard Nate Wolters to its list of NBA salaries. He’s slated to make $500K in Year 1 and $816,482 in Year 2 - both are guaranteed - before jumping to $947,276 in a non-guaranteed Year 3. The Bucks could keep him for a fourth year with a qualifying offer of $1.2 million.
Of course, Wolters is more focused on his craft than his check. He generally felt good about the way things went in the Las Vegas Summer League considering he was very much feeling things out.
"In college, I scored a lot, had the ball in my hands a lot - it’s going to be different at this level," he said. "Just learn to pick your spots and when to shoot and get into the offense."
Terry Vandrovec also posts regular updates on his Twitter page.
