Classy move at SDSU

Hours after he'd picked up his freshly pressed suit from the dry cleaner for Wednesday's senior night festivities at San Diego State, fourth-year student manager Ben Kneller learned he wouldn't need his fancy duds.

As a reward for four years of service to San Diego State's basketball program, Fisher called Kneller into his office Wednesday afternoon, handed him a No. 33 jersey and told him to prepare to play that night against Colorado State. Kneller not only got to check into the game when the Aztecs' lead balooned to double figures in the final two minutes, he also scored a point on a free throw with 53 seconds remaining.

That is absolutely ridiculous. I was a manager at LSU for four years and we had a guy working with us who was a very good high school player that had JUCO offers. He tried to walk on twice but never made the squad. Kudos to the coach though, that is incredible. Great story.
