A few basketball bullets

Freshman forward Jerome Hamilton is on crutches and wearing a boot on his right foot. I don’t know anything more than that on his injury.WSU is looking for a scrimmage opponent. If it can’t find one, the Shockers could schedule another exhibition game.I had a short conversation with Darron Boatright, WSU’s new senior associate athletic director.
