While making the rounds before tonight’s Wooden Award Gala in Los Angeles -- and hanging out with his fellow Wooden finalists -- Nick Johnson popped into ESPN 710 AM to once again talk about his future.
Or, sort of talk about it.
“I’m not sure yet,” Johnson told the station when asked if he will leave for the NBA. “The season just ended a few weeks ago. I’m still trying to get over that. Talking to family, my support system and talking with coach (Sean) Miller.”
Johnson was asked if losing to Wisconsin would affect his decision.
“It’s tough but you have to sit down with a group of people you trust and weigh the options,” Johnson said. The season was “kind of incomplete. We had a chance to make a title run.”
Johnson was also asked if he knew what Aaron Gordon would do. When he said he didn’t know, that generated laughter. Both Johnson and Gordon are expected to leave.
Stanley Johnson gave Team USA some life in a practice before Saturday's Hoop Summit game.
USA will face a team of young international stars in the annual game to be played Saturday at 4 p.m. in Portland. It will be shown on ESPN2.
The doors are revolving again in Eugene. Onetime UA recruiting target Ben Carter is transferring from Oregon and he may return home to play for UNLV. Meanwhile, guard A.J. Lapray is leaving the Ducks for Pepperdine.
Michigan's John Beilein wasn't wild about the block/charge rule change the way it played out.
Nice read from departing UA student/passionate fan Alec Sills-Trausch about his four years in the Zona Zoo.
