*Editor’s Note: Dawg Pack Dirt is the unofficially official gameday info sheet for University of Washington Men’s Basketball.
Now in its sixth year of publication, Dawg Pack Dirt was conceived during the 2004-2005 season by me, Alex Akita.
Since then, it has become an institution among fans and students of Husky Basketball, passed down from myself to current members of the Dawg Pack student section who still compile and compose the dirt for every Husky home game. All of the work is original and the information is compiled from a variety of sources, ranging from newspapers, to social networking sites, to friends of friends around the Pac-10.
Back for another year, here’s the first installment of the 2009-2010 season.
Dawg Pack Dirt: Central Washington University
Volume 6, Issue 1, November 4, 2009
Special to Seattle Sportsnet
Guess what? The Pac-10 Champions are back! That also means that the best student section in the conference needs to be back in full force. This year the Dawg Pack tickets sold out extremely fast which means that Husky nation expects us to impact games and bring back that great atmosphere to Hec Ed.
The Dawg Pack Dirt will be back for its sixth season and will be sent out various ways in the days leading up to each and every home game. Sorry for the fact that this issue is kind of short but Central Washington’s basketball team isn’t exactly making news all the time.

-Central Washington is a NCAA Division II team and a member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, home of a bunch of teams you don’t care about.
-CWU was 18-7 last season and finished second in the GNAC, before a first round loss in the NCAA Division II Tournament.
-Central only returns one starter from last season.
-Jr. #32 F Jody Johnson claims that “jerkin aint dead”. Watch him jerk it here. No homo.
-Jr. #5 F/C Chris Sprinkler is a tall guy that likes to jack up threes. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, only 22% of those went in the net last season. Claims he is sick with the “Grind Flu”.
Oh, and he is pretty much the definition of classy.
-Jr. #10 G Austin Dunn is an Oregon Ducks and Gonzaga Bulldogs fan. That’s about all that needs to be said.
-Fr. #12 G Ryan Snowden goes by the name “Snowman”. Any Auburn Riverside High School alum should take note that he claims that “the only high school in Auburn is Auburn High”. Be aware, his sexual tension might be a little bit too much for some.
-So. #21 G Shane Miller is pumped because he got a 26/25 on his ECON quiz so congratulate him on his brush with perfection. Nicknamed the “Dirty Devil” We have a feeling that it might have something to do with this photo.
-Sr. #24 G Noble’D Shelton has nothing other than his name. Take a crack at the correct pronunciation. I like Noble-D. Kind of like Ali-G.
-Jr. #25 C Coby Gibler nicknamed himself “Big Sexy”.
-So. #42 C Ted Nelson is a 7-footer that shoots 28% from the field… and he hasn’t attempted any threes. Yep.
