MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A whole lot of basketball, high school, college and might the Timberwolves look towards a seasoned veteran to lead? That’s what makes up this week’s news and notes.

Food for thought: If the Timberwolves want to make a change in management or coaching, they may talk to now retired Utah coach Jerry Sloan.

State boys basketball tournament notes: Orono’s Jordan Smith has some college offers from small Division I schools. He’s a straight a student.

Columbia Heights Zach Lofton, who might be the best player in 3A, will go to a Division I junior college.

The same is probably true of St. Paul Johnson’s Roosevelt Scott.

Jay Pivic, who is starting the Dakota County Technical basketball team next year, will be classified Division II, so they can give scholarships.

With a possible lockout looming, Trevor Mbakwe will examine his NBA draft potential, but some suggest he’s now leaning towards returning because he won’t go high enough and there won’t be a big money contract in Europe.

Cretin-Derham Hall’s Santrell Henderson has reportedly been suspended for the first game next season for Miami for undisclosed reasons — six players will sit out.

——-

There is an outside chance that former Gopher Bryce Webster, with one year of college eligibility, could end up at the University of St. Thomas.

Minnesota native Seth Appert coaches the RPI hockey team that will take on North Dakota this week. He has four Minnesota kids on the team.

Former first-round draft choice Ray Williams is back on his feet after being homeless and living out of his car in Florida. He found a job in his home town of Mount Vernon, N.Y. working for the city.
