The game:

-Cal State Northridge Matadors (3-6) @ Washington Huskies (5-5)

-Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion, Seattle, Wash.

-Thursday, December 22, 2011, 7:00 p.m. PST.

The team:

-Northridge is currently 3-6 on the season.

-Freshman guard Stephan Hicks leads the Matadors with 17.5 ppg and 8.5 rebounds.

-Head coach Bobby ‘Bras’ Braswell is in his 16th season at CSUN after coming from Oregon as an assistant coach.

-Braswell’s son and two former players stole over $6,000 worth of merchandise from a local Best Buy in 2009. They were released on $20,000 bail.

CSUN’s website has not been sufficiently updated 10 games into the season. We hope their Sports Information Director sees this.

The players:

-…but grew up in Eugene. Epic fail.

-“No one knows how much John loves to surf the internet.”

-Would title his autobiography John’s Life, and if a movie was made, the lead would be played by Denzel Washington.

-Apparently, he has created his own iPhone app. (john@johnsiphone.com)

-Likes Taco Bell, Popeye’s, and Dairy Queen.

-Addicted to cheese Bugles.

-Note where his hand is…
