Seasoned players pace Gonzaga in Kraziness in the Kennel scrimmage   


Gonzaga’s Kraziness in the Kennel scrimmage – often ragged but packed with examples of the team’s considerable potential – had just concluded when coach Mark Few noticed his players milling around on the court.

Few reminded them of the Zags’ post-practice/game tradition of huddling at center court and acknowledging the fans if there’s an audience – in this case the 6,000-plus Saturday inside the McCarthey Athletic Center.

“We didn’t know if we should do it or not at Kraziness,” freshman forward Drew Timme said, “but he reminded us.”

It was an example of just how new the Zags are with six freshmen and two graduate transfers donning GU uniforms in game-like conditions for the first time. They were even younger without senior Killian Tillie. The most experienced Zag had knee surgery Thursday, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be sidelined for too long.

The newcomers appear to be catching on quickly during this crash-course introduction to Gonzaga’s system. Older, more established players shined the most in the 16-minute scrimmage, with junior forward Corey Kispert, sophomores Filip Petrusev and Joel Ayayi, and grad transfers Admon Gilder and Ryan Woolridge leading the way.

It was no coincidence those five suited up primarily for the Blue, which consisted of the current top seven to eight players, although Ayayi, Timme, Brock Ravet and Anton Watson switched teams near the midpoint.

The Blue cruised to a 43-23 win over the White. Gilder went 3 for 3 on 3-pointers and scored 14 points. Kispert added 11 points, Petrusev seven and point guard Woolridge played roughly 14 turnover-free minutes while contributing four points. Ayayi drained three long 3s.

The freshmen had their moments, including Timme and Watson each with six points and point guard Ravet showing off his shooting range and passing ability.

“As is usually the case, the older guys, especially when you get under the lights, react a little better but some of the young guys, Drew and Anton have picked up things well,” Few said. “Brock had a good day and that’s a good sign.”

Perhaps the best sign was Gilder (blood clot) and Woolridge (kneecap surgery) playing without restriction following health issues last season. Both admitted they’re not quite 100 percent, but they’re getting closer with the season opener one month away.

“We’re really counting on those two to have an impact,” Few said.

Not to mention several of the freshmen. Timme, Watson and Ravet looked the most comfortable on the court.

The Kennel Club offered a warm ovation when four recruits – GU commits Dominick Harris and Julian Strawther and uncommitted Minneapolis teammates Jalen Suggs and Chet Homgren – sat down courtside. Suggs, Harris and Strawther are close friends and have called themselves the “Tricky Trio,” which prompted a “Tricky Trio” chant from the student section.

The overflow crowd was fully engaged during the 3-point contest as Ravet connected from beyond the new 3-point line of 22 feet, 1 3/4 inches, approved by the NCAA in June. Gilder edged Ayayi in one semifinal and Ravet knocked off Kispert by draining a tiebreaking 3 from the corner.

Ravet continued burying corner 3s, hitting 6 of 8 and also 4 of 4 from the top of the key to defeat Gilder in the final.

Petrusev captured the skills competition, which consisted of dribbling slalom-style through cones, passing to a fan and then hitting a layup/dunk, free throw and 3-pointer.

The 6-11 sophomore defeated Watson in the semifinals and Timme in the finals. The two big men bumped and pushed each other several times, trying to throw off the opponent’s shot, before Petrusev connected on the deciding 3-pointer.

“It was great, as always,” Petrusev said of the environment. “It gave everybody a sense of how that feels, which is important because there’s a lot of new guys.”

Timme already had a feel for the Kennel after visiting along with Ravet for Kraziness a year ago.

“It’s not even a game, it’s literally just a glorified practice and that many fans show up,” Timme said. “It’s the main reason I fell in love with the place.”

The whole team will probably hear from the coaching staff when it gathers to review the scrimmage videotape. The White team committed 14 turnovers.

“It was our first time out there and everyone was a little antsy,” Timme said. “We definitely might get an ear or two chewed off in film, but that’s how you learn.”

Snoop Dogg Performs Surprise Concert in Tiny Ontario, Oregon; Local Officials Lose their Minds

It was most likely the biggest thing that's happened for quite a while in the small town of Ontario, Oregon (pop. 11.366) when world-famous rapper/cannabis booster Snoop Dogg showed up for a free surprise concert on Saturday. Located on the Snake River on the Idaho border in Malheur County, Ontario city officials were shocked to hear that Snoop had agreed to celebrate the opening of Hotbox cannabis dispensary, which promised a fireworks display and a concert by the rapper who was to perform five songs as well as a DJ set. Cannabis grower/actor/comedian Jim Belushi was also scheduled to make an appearance.

Ontario officials say they were caught off guard by the sudden announcement, adding that the promoters had not applied for proper event permits and noise variations. Sgt. Dave Walters of the Ontario police was particularly worried they wouldn't have enough staff to deal with any emergencies, telling Idaho's CBS 2 news, "If something happens how are we going to help people? We just, we can’t, we won’t be able to. If 5,000 people show up on a two-acre lot, what are we going to do and how are we going to do it?" In response, police officials planned on activating “major incident response protocol.”

Another apparent issue was educating Ontario residents who had the following question: "Who or what is a 'Snoop Dogg'?" In an article titled, "National star Snoop Dogg to perform in Ontario; crowds, traffic expected," the Malheur Enterprise newspaper let readers know that "Snoop Dogg, 47, of Long Beach, Calif., has been a leader in hip-hop."

According to CBS 2, thousands of people showed up to the all-ages event with traffic backing all the way up into Idaho, but by all accounts the event went off without a hitch, and fun was had by all—including "hip-hop leader Snoop Dogg, 47, Long Beach, California."

Supreme Court Case Could Overturn Oregon’s Problematic Spilt-Jury Rule   


by Blair Stenvick

A case going before the United States Supreme Court on Monday morning could fundamentally change Oregon’s criminal court system—and while most legal experts in Oregon support the potential change, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is urging the Supreme Court to maintain the status quo.

The case, Ramos v. Louisiana, asks the court to consider whether state-level split-jury convictions—that is, criminal convictions that do not require a fully unanimous jury—are constitutional or not. The case concerns Evangelisto Ramos, a man who was convicted of second-degree murder by a 10-2 jury decision in 2016.

A 10-2 jury split was the minimum standard for most criminal convictions in Louisiana, but voters overturned the policy in a statewide ballot measure last year. That left Oregon as the last remaining state in the nation to allow split-jury decisions—which would change if the Supreme Court rules that all split-jury convictions are unconstitutional.

Both Louisiana and Oregon’s split-jury rules had roots in racism and xenophobia; in Louisiana, the policy stemmed from Jim Crow-era law, while Oregon’s law can be traced back to 1930s anti-immigrant sentiment. A recent Pulitzer Prize-winning analysis by Louisiana newspaper The Advocate found that split-jury convictions affect Black defendants much more often than white ones.

Both criminal justice reform advocates like the Oregon Justice Resource Center and mainstream legal groups like the Oregon District Attorneys Association (ODAA)—two groups that often find themselves on opposite ends of an issue—support overturning Oregon’s split-jury rule.

“[It]t is a hallmark of our justice system that it should be difficult to take someone’s liberty,” wrote an ODAA member in an Oregonian op-ed last year. “That’s exactly why defendants in criminal cases enjoy the presumption of innocence and the prosecutor must establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Adding the requirement of unanimity is another important safeguard against both wrongful convictions and wrongful acquittals.”

Rosenblum is also on the record as opposing split-jury convictions, saying she would support a statewide ballot measure banning them. But when it comes to Ramos in particular, Rosenblum falls on the side of stalling change, going so far as to submit a legal brief to the Supreme Court asking them to rule in favor of Louisiana.

In a statement shared with media in August, Rosenblum said she was concerned that a ruling in favor of Ramos could “require new trials in hundreds, if not thousands, of cases” in Oregon, which could in turn clog Oregon’s court system. She said her brief “in no way undercuts my view that Oregon should require juror unanimity in criminal cases going forward"—rather, she is worried about the potentially retroactive nature of a Ramos decision.

Aliza Kaplan, a law professor at Lewis & Clark and the co-founder of the Oregon Innocence Project, told the Mercury that in her opinion, Rosenblum is “acting like the sky is falling,” and that her estimate of cases that could be re-opened is likely overblown. Rosenblum’s office recently furnished Kaplan with a list of 292 cases that could be re-tried should the Supreme Court rule in favor of Ramos, but when Kaplan analyzed 110 of them, she found just 14 that she said would fit the legal requirements for relitigating.

And even if the ruling would overwhelm state courts, Kaplan said, that isn’t reason enough to oppose it.

“The Constitution should always trump any administrative inconvenience or burden,” she said. “This is about preserving individual rights and liberties.”

There are many moral and racial arguments for doing away with non-unanimous jury convictions. There are also commonsense arguments for keeping split-jury decisions: namely, that they make for a more efficient legal system, because they reduce the risk of having a hung jury. But Monday’s Ramos hearing will likely center around a more technical legal issue.

It is already established law that people are entitled to a unanimous jury at the federal level, thanks to the Sixth Amendment, which is part of the original Bill of Rights. But it is yet to be determined whether that right is extended to the state level through the 14th Amendment, which guarantees “due process,” or fair legal proceedings, to states. This practice—extending federal Bill of Rights protections to states through the 14th Amendment—is known as the “incorporation doctrine.”

The Supreme Court has already made many rulings based on incorporation doctrine—earlier this year, for example, it ruled that a right to not face excessive fines should apply to states, as opposed to only applying at the federal level. If the Supreme Court decides that split-jury verdicts are unconstitutional, it will likely be for that same reason.

Although the Supreme Court will hear arguments for Ramos on Monday morning, it is not required to release its decision until June 2020.

It remains to be seen what the exact effect of a pro-Ramos ruling could have on Oregon’s legal system. But for Kaplan, no cost could outweigh the benefit of abolishing split-jury decisions.

“Too much justice,” she said, “is not really a problem.”

To use a bad analogy, this is the difference between a vector and a bitmap. Precision and resolution are important for the latter.
So 24k or 192k might be useless for Pianoteq, but will be hearable for sampling sound data.
