By Mike Max, WCCO-TV

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.
