11-foot hoops?

We had a couple of interesting stories in the paper today I’ll draw your attention to here.
First is a story I wrote on a planned game by former Sonic assistant and longtime NBA scout Tom Newell this summer at Hec Ed that would feature 11-foot rims. You can read the story here for more details but the general idea is that Newell thinks the game has grown stagnant, especially at the NBA level, and that it might be worth experimenting with 11-foot hoops to see if that would make a positive difference.
The other is a column by our Bud Withers on all the strange happenings in the Pac-10 of late, most notably the decision by Lute Olson to get rid of longtime assistant Jim Rosborough.
