Special to Seattle Sportsnet
The Dawgs are back in the hunt for the Pac-10 title with that big win on Thursday. A win this Saturday over the Sun Devils would be absolutely huge.
ASU has become somewhat of a rival after last year, and they think UW is a school of thugs so feel free to play on that. Come looking like the biggest thug you can because we all know that’s what Derek Glasser likes.
When UW played in Tempe earlier in the season, the FSN commentators called us out saying the UW students better bring it when ASU goes to Seattle so do your thing Dawg Pack! Let’s make Hec Ed crazy this Saturday!
-Arizona State Sun Devils at Washington Huskies
-Saturday, February 6, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. PST
–Arizona State is currently tied for first place in the Pac-10 with a 6-4 record in league play, and a 16-7 record overall.
-Apparently ASU players have their phones taken from them by coaches 24 hours before the game in order to avoid distractions, but I’ve listed some numbers anyways. As of the time I’m writing this dirt, they are definitely more than willing to talk to us.
-#12 G Derek Glasser (Sr.) will be making his last trip to Hec Ed so let’s make it a miserable one, because, believe it or not, he actually claims that Hec Ed is his favorite place to play.
I’m honestly a little sad that he’s leaving because he’s been the player I’ve hated more than any other during my four years here. If you just imagine a rich white kid at ASU, you’ll see Derek Glasser. He is the ultimate rich party boy and your stereotypical douchebag.
*Editor’s note: Just a brief side note. For me, the player that held the coveted title of Most Annoying/Biggest Pain was Stanford’s Chris Hernandez. The difference is Hernandez ended up being a real cool dude, and Glasser is pretty much the anti-poon. They look quite a bit alike though. Related, perhaps?
Glasser claims that he’s the best dressed player on the team and that he has the best upper body.
His middle name is Jason.
Last season, Glasser’s mom, Veronica, was very angry at the Dawg Pack for teasing her boy.
The fight that occurred last year in which Derek Glasser did his best to teabag our own Venoy Overton is now part of the NCAA instructional video on unsportsmanlike conduct.
He is like a girl with a Chihuahua in her purse when it comes to his bulldog Maddie.
He spends roughly 87% of his time without a shirt on and seven nights a week in the club, most likely with a v-neck t-shirt or a just a button-up that isn’t buttoned up.
Glasser was “anonymously” quoted in ESPN The Magazine a few months ago as saying that we’re crazy up here at the UW because we like to photoshop pictures of players. Well Derek, I guarantee you this isn’t photoshopped.
-#2 C Eric Boateng (Sr.) is in his third season with ASU after transferring from Duke.
The native of London loves to play ping-pong and is fluent in the African language “Twi”. I doubt there are any Twi speakers in the Dawg Pack, but Google is your friend.
-#3 G Ty Abbot (Jr.) goes by Ty but his first name is Tyshawn.
He has two dogs named Deuce and Doodoo.
He pretty much lives and dies by the three, so get into his head during warm-ups.
-#10 G Jamelle McMillan (Jr.) is actually named Nathaniel after his rather famous father around these parts, Seattle Supersonics legend and current Portland Trailblazers coach, Nate McMillan.
McMillan claims that his toughest loss was losing right here in Hec Ed in seasons past, but he has also won a state high school championship on the same floor with O’Dea High School.
Jamelle can be reached at [edited for relevance].
He recently received a $216 ticket in the mail for speeding and texting while driving. Here is the radar photo to prove it.
-#22 F Victor Rudd (Fr.) just got a tattoo on his hand on Sunday. Claims that he’s going to “get super blasted” in the next three months.
*Editor’s note: HAH! Super blasted. Have fun with that one.
He can be reached at [edited for relevance].
-#23 C Ruslan Pateev (Fr.) is a giant Russian that can be reached at [edited for relevance].
He has been labeled the worst dressed Sun Devil by his teammates.
*Editor’s note: Ruslan, you’re on my Pac-10 fantasy team because we have to have a center and there are literally less than 10 Pac-10 basketball players listed as centers who actually see the floor. You’re one of them. In an ideal situation, your team would lose on Saturday, but you’d go for 35-and-20 or something like that. Fans, please lay off Ruslan for these reasons. Team Random White Guy At The End Of The Bench thanks you.
-#30 G/F Rihards Kuksiks (Jr.) is a native of Latvia who absolutely lit us up earlier this season so do whatever you have to do to get into his head.
Some of his friends call him “Kooks”.
*Editor’s note: I used to respect Kuksiks’ game until I found out he was only 6’6″. I just assumed he was like all the other Eastern European forwards who stood 6’10” and could shoot the trey. I was wrong. This is ridiculous. This guy didn’t see Justin Holiday in the desert though, and I guarantee you he’ll know all about Holiday by Sunday morning.
-#44 G Jerren Shipp (Sr.) is the subject of the photo that won Seattle Sportsnet’s Picture of the Year Award with this gem. I’m still speechless whenever I see it. [REDACTED]. Enjoy.
