Neighbour gets in three games as Great Britain Futures go 2-1 vs U23 Germany

    Will Neighbour's Great Britain Futures team went 2-1 in its three games in Germany this weekend. It's difficult to get statistics (although we do have them from Game 3). It's also not clear how much Will played in each of these games. But he does show up a couple of times in some stories.

UALR's Will Neighbour tunes up with games for Great Britain's Futures Team

   As it turns out, UALR sophomore Will Neighbour's first game action in more than a year won't have to wait until November.
   Neighbour has been selected to play for Great Britain's Futures Team and will get some game action later this summer in Germany. Neighbour redshirted last season at Daytona State with a shoulder injury and has not played competitively since last summer's U20 European Championships.

Burn The Horse now optimized for mobile devices

   Yeah, we know it's 2011 and we're about five years behind on this. But Burn The Horse is now much easier to read on your phone. Go to the same address at and you'll have a much easier time reading than in the past.

Tulsa Shock releases UALR's Chasity Reed

   Not surprised givent that she didn't get minutes in either of the past two games, but the WNBA's Tulsa Shock has waived former UALR star Chastity Reed.
   When Coach Nolan Richardson resigned last week it seemed like it was going to be tough for Reed to stick with the Shock. It turns out that she lasted only one more game.
   We'll have to wait to see if she gets picked up by another team. Otherwise, it's likely off to Europe for Reed. Those leagues don't get the notoriety that the WNBA gets, but they do typically pay higher salaries.
   Best of luck to Chas.
