It’s high noon (kind of?)...

Russell Okung gets first season start:

There haven’t been many positives in the season for the Chargers. That changed Wednesday when head coach Anthony Lynn announced left tackle Russell Okung will play on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

”He won’t be able to play the whole game,” said Lynn. “Trent Scott will probably play the bulk of the reps like he’s been playing, but Russell will work his way back in, and he has to get his game reps in right now.” {NBC San Diego}

Vivan Gray named to Cheryl Miller Award watch list:

Named after the three-time Naismith Player of the Year and Class of 1995 Hall of Famer, the annual award in its third year recognizes the top small forwards in women’s NCAA Division I college basketball.

Last season, Gray received honorable mention All-America status, was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and was unanimously tabbed as a first-team All-Big 12 pick. This past summer, she participated in USA Basketball’s Pan American Games team trials.

The junior produced one of the most prolific offensive campaigns in school history a year ago. Gray averaged 20.0 points per game, which ranked second among Big 12 players and 25th nationally. Additionally, her average was the fifth-best nationally among sophomores. {Okstate.com}
