Last One Off The Journey Please Turn Off The Lights!

Don't know how I missed this last week but I saw that former Duke assistant and ace recruiter Tia Jackson left to continue Duke's takeover of Pac-10 women's basketball by accepting the head coaching job at Washington. Talk about a resume: played at Iowa for C. Vivian Stringer, played in the WNBA for Cheryl Miller, was an assistant at Stanford under Tara VanDerveer, and, of course, at Duke for Goestenkors. Sounds like she would have made a good replacement for Coach G. Oh well, Joe Alleva promises he'll get someone to keep the good times rolling. Any day now Joe!

Also of interest:
  • Van Chancellor officially named to succeed Pokey Chatman at LSU: As The Dude pointed out, he's not likely to have affairs with any of his players! Oh yeah, plus he can coach. The ESPN article says he will keep assistant Bob Starkey, but it will be intriguing to see what happens with Carla Berry, a.k.a. The Whistleblower.
