In other news today... 2009 NBA Summer League Game Boxscore
Gonzaga's role in the NBA Summer League went out yesterday with barely a peep as only two former Zags were in action and neither had their best game of the week.  Micah played 25 minutes and shot 2-8 from the floor. He also had three rebounds and a steal in his last game in the NBA Summer League.  Josh continued to not really play much and didn't score or get a rebound in his last game

"But Pargo appears to be the most talented. A late addition to the roster, he showed athleticism and a deep shooting touch. But he struggled with turnovers"

Jeremy was labeled one of the "winners" of the summer league for the Pistons by the Detroit Free Press.  He averaged 10 point a game in Vegas and is battling with Sean Singletary for a job with the team.  Singletary has already been with five NBA teams in his short, short NBA career.  Jeremy bounced back very well after a pretty slugglish run in Orlando and has put himself in a great position to be on a team.  Austin Daye was also labeled a winner by the Free Press for his great summer league performance. - Nick Johnson could leave state

"Ohio State, ASU, Arizona, USC, UCLA, Washington, Gonzaga, and the usual schools are all still recruiting me," Johnson said. 

It looks like Arizona prep guard Nick Johnson may be following the herd from high school to prep school.  After watchin Findlay Prep on ESPN and seeing Avery Bradley get lauded with praise (I'm guessing), Nick Johnson may be headed off to Findlay to get moe national attention.  He's already gotten offers from both Arizona schools, Ohio State, Oregon State, and Gonzaga but the move to Findlay seems to be a move to get the attention of Ben Howland and UCLA.  Don't put a whole lot of stock in Nick's listing of Gonzaga, he seems like a dead lock to play his college ball in the Pac-10 conference.

Just as a programming note...

This week marks the biggest week in AAU Basketball as the trifecta of tournaments will be taking place in Vegas.  The Main Event, Reebok Summer Championships, and the Adidas Super 64 will all be running later this week.  We will have each tournament detailed and broken down for you so you know where all the Gonzaga prospects are!
