Traevon Jackson from Westerville South High School near Columbus, Ohio, has committed to continue his basketball career at the University of Wisconsin.

Jackson made his choice on Saturday according to published reports. He chose the Badgers over Arizona State University.

The 6’2 Jackson, a guard, will be a senior next year, is the son of former Ohio State All-American Jim Jackson and is a spitting image of him, just about four inches shorter.

He was not offered a scholarship by Thad Matta and the Buckeyes eventhough he lives 15 miles from campus and his Dad is one of the most-popular players of all-time.

During the 2009-2010 basketball season, Jackson scored 20.5 ppg, 8.5 rebounds per game, 4 steals, shot almost 70 percent from 3-point land and was second team All-State.

The Big 12 may have 10 teams, but will move on without Colorado and Nebraska

Despite everybody’s belief and rumors, the Big 12 Conference will not be going into extinction.

The much-maligned and beleagued conference made a big-time comeback on Monday when Texas turned down an invitation to join the Pacific 10 and decided to stay in the Big 12.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M quickly made the decision to the conference after commissioner Dan Beebe convinced his members that they would make more money in television and media deals in a 10-team Big 12 Conference than in a 16-team Pacific 10.

Rumor has it that Texas is clear and free to set up its own TV network and can keep all proceeds in exchange for remaining in the Big 12.

The news was extremely good for Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, Iowa State and Missouri who would’ve been left without a conference if the Big 12 had dissolved completely.

Monday night's starting lineups (

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Monday night was “614 Magazine Night” at Huntington Park. Plus, there were several fans in attendance to see Matt Angle, a native of Whitehall and a former Ohio State Buckeye baseball star whose has risen rather quickly in the Orioles system. Angle was drafted in 2007.

Clippers fans ended up disappointed and the Angle fans were happy as Matt played a solid game going 1 for 4 with a walk in the leadoff spot for Norfolk. And he came up with the defensive play of the game on Clippers third baseman Jared Goedert, who has shown a display of power-hitting since being promoted Double-A Akron.

The Clippers were down 3-2 when Goedert drove the baseball toward the wall in deep center.

Matt Angle, playing centerfield for Norfolk, robbed Goedert of a possible two-run double  with a sensational catch up against the center-field wall in the fourth inning. That play seemed to take the wind out of the sails for the Clippers.

The Clippers not only had to worry about the Norfolk defense, but the Tides received a solid pitching performance from starting pitcher Armando Gabino(4-0) en route to a 6-3 win over Columbus before a crowd of 9,059.

The Clippers offense, one of the better ones in the International League, went 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position. The usual clutch hitting was not available last night.

Losing pitcher for Columbus was Carlos Carrasco (5-3). Carrasco put up another quality start but had trouble getting Norfolk Tides third baseman Josh Bell out. Bell homered, doubled and drove in two runs to lead his club.

* Norfolk is the Triple-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. And more than a few fans at Huntington Park made the comment that the tides have better talent than the parent team and some those players should be in the majors.

* Norfolk is 29-37, 11.5 games behind Durham in the IL South. They’re 11-20 on the road, and 5-5 in the last 10 games.

* Norfolk usually gives the Clippers fits. In 2009, the Tides were 7-1 against Columbus.

* Tides reliever Ross Wolf has lowered his ERA to 2.17 for the season. Wolf has not allowed a run in any of his seven appearances in June, as he’s allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out four in 8.2 innings over that stretch. 18 of his 24 games this season have been scoreless.

* Tides outfielder Matt Angle was selected by the Orioles in the 7th round of the 2007 draft out of Ohio State University. Angle led the 2007 Buckeyes with a .366 average, 53 runs, 27 walks, 22 stolen bases and four triples in 59 games, and was a First-Team and Second-team All-Mideast Region pick as a sophomore (2006) and a Third Team All-Big Ten pick as a junior (2007).

* Columbus manager Mike Sarbaugh is just six games away from his 500th win (494-347 .587 all-time in the regular season).

* The Clippers are 39-27 and lead the IL West by  1.5 games over Toledo who is 37-28.

CLIPPERS UPDATE: Saturday and Sunday results

The Columbus Clippers defeated the Norfolk Tides, 6-2 on Saturday night in Huntington Park before 10,100 faithful fans to open a four game series. The two teams battled not only each other but a 46-minute rain delay halting play in the home half of the fifth inning.

The Clippers trailed 2-0 prior to the rain delay as Michael Aubrey, in his return to Huntington Park, hit his fourth homer run of the season in the top of the third inning off starter Josh Tomlin. Blake Davis followed Aubrey’s homer in the third with one of his own, his second of the season.

Once play resumed in the bottom of five, the Clippers started pounding the ball and took control of the game.


Lou Marson up until a few days ago was playing for the Cleveland Indians. Now he is 140 miles south down Interstate-71 playing for the Triple-A affiliate Columbus Clippers and making the most of his opportunities.

On Sunday, he broke a perfect game in the sixth inning with a home run and helped the Clippers to a 10-inning, 5-4 win over the Norfolk Tides, the Baltimore Orioles Triple-A affiliate.

Marson had heard all season that Indians top prospect Carlos Santana was going to be called up at anytime. It would not have made a difference if he was hitting .190 or .490, the move was going to be made.

The Clippers were trailing 3-0 against Tides starter Brandon Erbe having retired all 15 batters he had faced. In that sixth inning, Marson had seen enough of three-up-and-three-down as he turned on a 1-1 pitch and belted a homer to the left field bleachers and the comeback was heating up.

Matt LaPorta (mlb)

Matt LaPorta, another recently demoted player, has been on a hot streak since coming from Cleveland on June 8. He delivered the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 10th inning to drive home Jose Constanza and the comeback was complete.


* Bobby Dickerson, who had been serving as Baltimore Orioles Minor League Coordinator and Latin American Field Coordinator has been named interim manager of the Norfolk Tides, replacing Gary Allenson who was chosen to be third base coach for the Baltimore Orioles when Dave Trembley was fired June 3rd.

Juan Samuel, third base coach under Trembley, was named interim manager.

The 44-year-old Dickerson has a managerial record of 525-462 and most recently was field manager of the Iowa Cubs, top farm team for the Chicago Cubs in 2009. He had a record of 72-72 at Iowa.

As a player, Dickerson was drafted by the Yankees in the 232nd round of the 1987 amateur draft and played seven seasons in the minors with the Yankees and Orioles.
