Basketball galore

Two exciting things in Wednesday’s edition of The Hatchet. The schedule, which is posted below, and some Danilo (J.R.) Pinnock news.

Pinnock told staff writer Andrew Alberg that a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers was “in the mail” and he expected to sign within days. John Black, the director of public relations for the Lakers, said that Pinnock has not signed and a contract was not on the way. Daniel Servick, his agent, said negotiations are still on going.
