Low takes stroke on tour
Iolani alumnus Derrick Low led the Washington State men's basketball team with 22.2 points per game on an exhibition tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Low, an All-Pac-10 guard as a junior at WSU last season, scored 35 points in a 102-101 loss to the Sydney Kings, a traditionally strong Australian pro team.
The Cougars went 4-2 on their tour, which concluded yesterday in Cairns. Low, a former Raiders standout, scored at least 16 points every game.
Low and WSU backcourt partner Kyle Weaver are two of 30 college players selected to begin tryouts July 12 for the 12-man U.S. team that will play in the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 25-29.
Vivas testifies in civil trial
Former Fresno State volleyball coach Lindy Vivas said she was undermined by an athletic department official who met secretly with one of her players.
Vivas, a Punahou alumnus, testified in her civil trial Tuesday that her supervisor, former associate athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois, met privately on several occasions without Vivas' knowledge with team captain Kristen Fenton, who quit during the 2004 season.
Vivas called the secret meetings "ultimate undermining" by Reed-Francois and said she felt "(Reed-Francois) wanted that player to quit."
Vivas is suing Fresno State for $4.1 million, saying she was fired in 2004 for her outspoken advocacy of gender equity and for her perceived sexual orientation.
