Patrick O'Bryant's season is over with his Lithuanian team and he may not be interested in re-signing for next year - so he may pursue other options

The writer does make one glaring mistake with this statement-

The coach made quick work of turning around the program, going from 12 wins in 2003 to 22 wins in 2006. That 2006 season was capped with a Cinderella run in the NCAA tournament, when the 13th-seeded Braves knocked off No. 1 Memphis to reach the Sweet 16.

Theron Wilson (20 ppg, 9 rpg) had a truly GREAT game...

"Geelong torched the Blues 90-64 on Saturday night...
A remarkable second quarter from Theron Wilson spearheaded the Supercats' defeat of Albury-Wodonga.

The electrifying import poured in 19 points in a stunning second-stanza display.

"He had a great weekend, but today he was just unbelievably good," coach Jamie O'Loughlin said of Wilson's effort.

"His numbers were phenomenal. Today he was just very difficult to play against.

"He scored from the perimeter, he scored from the post, he scored in transition, he just found ways to score from anywhere.

"But he's also, always an aggressive defender and that really helps us in our defensive structures."

"Wilson sat out most of the last term (quarter), but finished with 30 points

Wilson scored 25 points in Saturday night's 26-point defeat of Frankston.."

Here is a recent interview of Jim Les-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_-8SXXrc7Y


And for those too young to remember- here are highlights of the 1992 NBA All Star weekend, including the Long Distance Shootout (three point contest) that came down to a shootout between the heavy favorite Craig Hodges, and an improbable challenger, Jim Les. It starts just after the 50 second mark-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZzRZcBvSsE


And here is a long revealing interview with Jim when he was still the coach at Bradley. It was just recently uploaded to YouTube, though it was done by WTVP in 2009.-
