April 2, 2006


Kansas University assistant basketball coach Joe Dooley is listed in media reports as a possible candidate for the vacant head-coaching job at UNC-Wilmington.

UNC-Wilmington coach Brad Brownell resigned Friday to become head coach at Wright State.

Dooley, a former head coach at East Carolina, was listed as a possible candidate by the Wilmington (N.C.) Star-News. Others mentioned: Texas assistant Rodney Terry; New Jersey Nets assistant Pat Sullivan; North Dakota State head coach Tim Miles and New York Knicks assistant Phil Ford.

Collins runner-up for "Mr. Basketball"

Chicago - Kansas University basketball signee Sherron Collins is runner-up for "Mr. Basketball" in Illinois. Jon Scheyer of Glenbrook North, who is headed to Duke, won the award.

Collins averaged 26 points, seven rebounds and seven assists per game for Crane High. The award annually goes to the state's top player.

Collins on Saturday was named a third-team Parade All-American. Earlier in the week, the Chicago media incorrectly indicated he was a second-teamer. Ten players were named to the first, second and third teams.
