An Absolutely Great Day To Be a Ute

The big news of the day is Utah accepting an invitation from the Pac-10 and becoming the 12th member of the conference.
Otherwise there wasn’t a lot of news from today’s press conference at Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Commissioner Larry Scott (above, middle) said there’s no immediate plans to continue with expansion and mum on whether the conference would split into divisions. He said Utah would join the league next year for the start of the 2011-12 season. Scott was unsure when Colorado, which is leaving the Big 12, would join the Pac-10.
“There is an open question about the date that Colorado will come in,” Scott said. “When we made the announcement it was 2012, but when all the dust settles there is a possibility the timetable will move up to 2011 to start with Utah. When they start in 2012 they will start as a full member in regards to revenue sharing, but if they start earlier we will have to discuss that.”
Ted Miller at ESPN.com reports Colorado was invited to become an immediate full-revenue sharing partner while Utah will get a full share in 2014-15.
Here’s a look at the all-time series between Utah and Colorado and Pac-10 teams.
Utah vs. Pac-10: 131-94.
Colorado vs. Pac-10: 30-36
HAWES TRADED TO PHILADELPHIA

The Sacramento Kings traded former Washington standout Spencer Hawes (right) and swingman Andres Nocioni to Philadelphia for center Samuel Dalembert.
After one season with the Huskies, Sacramento drafted Hawes, who starred at Seattle Prep, with the 10th overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft. The 7-foot-1 center averaged 8.8 points and 5.8 rebounds during three season with the Kings.
Hawes started 59 games and averaged 11.4 points and 7.1 rebounds last season. He missed the final seven games of the season after suffering a knee injury.
Trading Hawes separates him from former Husky Jon Brockman, a rookie last season.
