- Sticking to the hardwood, forward Warith Alatishe, a transfer from Nicholls State, will be immediately eligible for the Beavers program after the NCAA ruled in his favor on Friday. Alatishe was a second-team All-Southland Conference selection for the Colonels last season, as he averaged 10.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. The 6’ 7” play-maker on both ends of the floor figures to immediately jump into head coach Wayne Tinkle’s rotation from the get-go.
- The San Antonio Spurs may be in a state of chaos by their usual dominant standards, but they think former Beaver forward Drew Eubanks may be part of the solution, as the franchise inked him to a three-year, $5.3 million dollar contract. According to Pounding The Rock, Eubanks “averaged 7.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game off the bench for the Silver and Black during their eight-seeding games in the Orlando bubble”.
- Get your popcorn ready, Oregon State fans. For another week, the Jacksonville Jaguars plan on starting quarterback Jake Luton, as regular go-to Gardner Minshew continues to deal with a thumb injury. Luton, of course, is Oregon State’s starter from last season, who has so far carried the load for the Jaguars in tight losses to the Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers. This week’s challenge? The currently 9-0 Pittsburgh Steelers.
- And finally, did you know that on this date (November 20th) in sports history, Beavers legend AC Green broke the NBA all-time consecutive games played record back in 1997, when he appeared in his 907th straight game. A fun fact from the weird world of pandemic-effected sports.
