Vitale honors Brockman

Posted by Bob Condotta at 10:03 AM

Have no idea if this is really old or not, but saw this about Dick Vitale naming Jon Brockman to his All-Rolls Royce second team for next year.

Vitale writes of Brockman that: Washington may not get a lot of press but Brockman is going to be legit for them this season and anchor their front line.

Not exactly a lot of insight there, but hard to argue with it.

The Pac-10 is well-represented on Vitale's list with Arizona's Chase Budinger also on the second team, Stanford's Brook Lopez and UCLA's Darren Collison on the third team and UCLA's Josh Shipp on the fifth team.

INTERESTING COACHING NEWS OUT OF EWU: This is also a few days old, but between football media day in LA and hydros in the Tri-Cities, I haven't had the usual time to get at all this stuff.

But wanted to pass this along from Dave Trimmer's blog at the Spokesman-Review about Eastern Washington coach Kirk Earlywine showing some interest in the Ball State job.

Earlywine, if you recall, got the job at EWU earlier this spring instead of several other candidates, including UW assistant Jim Shaw. Word later seemed to be that Shaw and others who were interviewed were mostly window dressing as EWU AD Michael Westfall had his sights set on Earlywine from the beginning ---- the two have a long relationship.
