Coley gets second Sun Belt Player of the Week; recruiting note

Sophomore guard Jerica Coley threw in 28 points against Morgan State last week, which is in the pedestrian range (for her). Saturday's 36 points, however, including 23 in the second half against Louisiana-Monroe, were a career high and boosted her to another Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week Award.

Or maybe it was the career-high 16 rebounds and eight assists (tying a career high) against Morgan State. Among the many things to like about Coley: she hits free throws. She was 90.0 from the line last week. So many players these days don't understand how devastating that simple skill can make them late in the game, particularly if they handle the ball often.

Saturday's game jacked her scoring average up to 24.9 points per game, second in the nation.


For National Signing Day, the most overrated day in college-affiliated football as far as what we really know come sundown, I'll be in Indianapolis slogging through Super Bowl Week.

As FIU pursues North Palm Beach Benjamin offensive guard Trenton Saunders, 6-4, 280, they'll get help from Riviera Beach Suncoast defensive back Davison Colimon. Colimon Tweeted he'll try to get Saunders to come with him to FIU.
