Here is my story on the new women's hoops assistant hired this week. ... I spoke with Coach Menzies as he travels to the King James tournament in Cleveland this weekend. July is a big recruiting month and I hope to catch up with him late next week on this summer's recruiting trips and what they are looking for down the line. ... Despite his optimism on his blog, I don't know if we will see Wendell McKines on the court this season. Perhaps I'm pessimistic. I think it's also possible that Troy Gillenwater could also miss some games early in the season due to grades. As you know, he was a redshirt freshman last season so he doesnt have the same luxury as Wendell, who could sit out and improve on the court and in the classroom. Menzies feels like Gillenwater's academic situation can improve prior to the season, but it's a possibility he could miss some time as well. ... Menzies said his approach to fill the Aggies' remaining two games on the schedule is to try to get a winnable game at home with one and trying to land a home-and-home series with a regional opponent.
