ON MELVYN OLIVER’S STATUS VIS-A-VIS THE NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE
We hope to hear something very soon. We’ve very, very optimistic about it. He’s a little bit of a project and he has to lose some weight. He can be a special player for us.
We’re probably going to do that this year. I plan on definitely picking up two or three kids (during tryouts Nov. 3)
ON HERB POPE & KEON LAWRENCE
I can’t predict if (Pope) is going to win his appeal (to the NCAA). We will put in an appeal on Keon Lawrence in. He could be eligible right after exams in December. …You’re talking about a kid that could be drafted. If he wins his appeal he will play in DEcember.
