City loses LSC hoops tourney to Allen - Nick Gholson, Times Record News
Kay Yeager Coliseum has a brand spanking new basketball court. But nobody wants to use it. The Harlem Globetrotters played on it just last week. Then the new floor, which cost the city right at $100,000, was folded up and put away. It may not be used again until the Globetrotters come back next year.

"We have talked to Midwestern about possibly having a four-team tournament. I have also had some high schools express interest in a similar kind of tournament. And I have been trying to get an NBA exhibition game ever since I got here," MPEC Executive Director Bob Sullivan told me.

Sullivan is looking at all these alternatives after he was told that Wichita Falls had lost another bid to host the Lone Star Conference Basketball Tournament. The LSC is planning to announce that the tournament will move to Allen for the next three years after its four-year deal with Bartlesville, Okla., ends this year. The good thing about Allen is it's just 150 miles from Wichita Falls, Not only is that 140 miles closer than Bartlesville, you also save a booty full of money in tolls.

The bad thing about Allen is it's not Wichita Falls.

Allen, Wichita Falls and Amarillo were the towns that bid for the tournament. I have been told that Amarillo was a distant third in the competition.

ASU BASKETBALL: Rams succeeding despite adversity - Nathan Wright, San Angelo Standard Times

That is the one common word used by Angelo State men's basketball players and head coach Fred Rike when describing the 2010-11 season so far.

The season has seen its share of it. From beginning the season with injured players on the bench and one player since making a recovery from knee surgery that kept him from playing last season to the suspension of a returning All-American to the loss of one of the Lone Star Conference's leading scorers and the leading rebounder, the Rams have been through their share of adversity.

But through it all, the Rams have persevered. They are 8-10 overall, but 4-2 in the LSC South Division with upset victories over defending LSC champion Midwestern State and No. 13 Incarnate Word just two nights ago.
