Volume 6, Issue 17, February 3, 2010
Special to Seattle Sportsnet
The blackout was awesome and it was a huge win for the Dawgs on Saturday! Good job to the Dawg Pack for bringing it!
The Dawg Pack also managed to draw the ire of a few classless Cougar fans that learned a costly lesson: if you mess with a Dawg, you’re going to have to deal with all the others that will back us up.
This game is definitely a huge one if we want to hold onto any sort of NCAA Tournament hopes, so make sure to bring it again on Thursday.
*Editor’s note: Attention morally righteous Cougar fans. Please stop reading right now, as there are phone numbers of Arizona players posted below. We wouldn’t want you to see those and be tempted to use them to your advantage when the Wildcats come to play at the Beasley Performing Arts Center and Ballet Recital House on Saturday. Thanks for your understanding.
-Arizona Wildcats at Washington Huskies
-Thursday, February 3, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. PST
–Arizona is currently in first place in the Pac-10 with a record of 6-3 in conference play, and 12-9 overall.
-A few members of the team went bowling on Tuesday night. Solomon Hill, Nic Wise, Dondre Wise, and Kyryl Natyazhko played each other. Hill won with a score of 131.
-#13 G Nic Wise (Sr.) is the leader of this team and is addicted to Twitter. I’m sure there is a lot of dirt on his Twitter feed, but I didn’t feel like reading through 4,200 Tweets.
What I got off the first page is that he has a thing for redheads and they make his heart stop. He also asked Isaiah Thomas if it was snowing up here before his flight. He seriously tweets about every four minutes. It’s ridiculous. Ask him about it during warm-ups.
– Nic was recently rolling down the road hanging out the window and yelling at everyone “DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM!?!!?”
-Nic is full of himself. He has a Facebook album devoted to all magazine covers that feature him on it.
-Nic’s about me section of his Facebook states, “I PLAY BASKETBALL FOR UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA………. NBA next year”
-Nic is a part of the “Nic Wise Fan Club” on Facebook… there’s only 109 members.
– It’s doppelganger week on Facebook if you haven’t noticed… Nic changed his profile pic to 2Pac.
-Here is a text conversation that Nic recently had with a Dawg Pack member:
Nic : idk If I shud chill with u lol
DP: aha why
Nic: dnt trust it. i know how yall like to get dirt on players
DP: Ouch… i think you just broke my heart
Nic: lol stop
DP: ahaha its up to you!
Nic: Can I trust u
DP: I don’t know, follow your heart!
Nic: yeah I know yall did last year. not like i really care tho. Oregon does it best
Oh, and stay tuned for his phone number. We have some sources close to him and we should be receiving it shortly.
*Editor’s note: Twitter sucks.
-#1 C Kyryl Natyazhko (Fr.) goes by the nickname “K-Real” and is Ukrainian.
He can be reached at [edited for relevance]. We’ve already checked and he is very talkative so hit him up.
He has a 1/8 assist-to-turnover ratio.
His cousin, who plays for the Utah Jazz, is named Kyrylo Fesenko. Notice the difference in first names.
-#50 C Alex Jacobson (So.) can be reached via cell phone at [edited for relevance].
He’s a self-proclaimed bench-warmer and proud of it.
His official bio on Arizona’s website states that he “needs to be more aggressive at both ends.” Sounds like a ringing endorsement.
He’s shooting 7-8 from the field and 1-1 from three-point range this season. Make sure Coach Sean Miller knows this guy needs to be on the court.
-#42 F Jamelle Horne (Jr.) just posted a Facebook update asking if anyone will rub his feet. Do we have any takers in the Dawg Pack? We didn’t think so. Maybe we can encourage one of his teammates to help the poor guy out.
*Editor’s note: Gross.
He’s only shooting 51% from the charity stripe so make sure we get in his head there. Numerous nicknames can be formed from the last name “Horne” so start thinking but keep it classy.
-#23 F Derrick Williams (Fr.) gets a care package from his mom every three weeks. You can see his teammates opening it and finding out what he gets a lifetime supply of here. Make sure to ask him if he has any Mentos or beef jerky.
Also, here’s a photo of Williams in a zebra print Snuggie.
-#3 G/F Kevin Parrom (Fr.) can be reached via BBM at 20df7e4f for those with Blackberries.
He attended South Kent Prep School in Connecticut, which was also attended by Isaiah Thomas and Matthew Bryan-Amaning and coached by Raphael Chillious.
He is shooting a blistering 16% from three so let him know he needs to move closer.
-#44 F Solomon Hill (Fr.) loves to play Call of Duty and is a big fan of Japanese anime.
*Editor’s note: Nothing good ever comes from Japanese anime.
-#21 G Kyle Fogg (So.) is looking sexy in this pic.
-#20 G Dondre Wise (So.) is not nearly as good as his brother, Nic. Don’t be afraid to let him know that, either.
Additionally, Dondre has only played eight minutes this season.
-Looking ahead to Saturday for a minute, ASU is coming to town, and our last few matchups with them have been TESTY. They all seem to think that we’re a team of thugs so a few Dawg Pack members suggested that we play off that. Come dressed like the biggest thug you can imagine and try to scare party boy Derek Glasser. We got called out (*Editor’s note: by the homer announcers that probably shouldn’t have jobs) on FSN during our game in Tempe, so we need to bring it for that game. Start coming up with ideas now.
-If you haven’t seen it yet. There is a little story and large picture about the Dawg Pack in the current issue (the “fan issue”) of ESPN The Magazine. Check it out!
*Editor’s note: It’s the one with Joe Mauer on the cover.
