When I talked to ULL coach Robert Lee over the summer, it was the day after Dwayne Mitchell had been granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. He played in an exhibition game for Auburn before transferring, you see, and this had previously counted as a full year. Coach Lee was so happy, I could have sworn he was going to jump through the phone and give me a hug.Lee's going to need big production out of Mitchell after losing Orien Greene
to the NBA and early exit Tiras Wade to... where is he, anyway? The Cajuns started slow out of the gate (1-5), but they found their form last night in a home rout of a very good Oral Roberts team. Leading the way was the hot-shooting 6-5 MMBOD, who went 9-for-11 from the floor and grabbed a team-leading eight boards. Spicy!
