Big changes in Corvallis

Not only will the Beavers be welcoming C.J. Giles next season, but they’ve said goodbye to five other players, including mercurial forward Sasa Cuic.
You can read the full release here from the school’s athletic department stating that Cuic is electing to begin a pro career overseas while guard Angelo Tsagarakis and center Liam Hughes will graduate and transfer to lower-division schools, and that guard Wesley Washington has run into academic problems and won’t be back.
Also, guard Vojin Svilar is returning to his native Serbia.
I named Cuic the most disappointing player in the Pac-10 in this space earlier this year as I always thought he had a lot more ability than his performance indicated. None of the others are big losses, though Tsagarakis will always have a minor place in Husky lore as he scored 18 points in the memorable 2004 game in Corvallis when UW rallied from a 16-point deficit to begin the program’s turnaround.
Turnover of this level isn’t all that common, however, and indicates that the pressure is on in Corvallis for coach Jay John to begin turning things around. He’ll be in his sixth season next year and has yet to lead OSU to a winning conference record.
