There was so much interest in Austin Hatch's news conference on Wednesday in a lecture hall at Los Angeles Loyola that a TV station from Indiana went live with some of his comments. Hatch, the 6-foot-6 senior who moved to Los Angeles from Fort Wayne, Ind., to help his recovery from a 2011 brain injury suffered in a plane crash that killed his father and stepmother, is still not fully recovered to suit up for the Cubs. "My time is coming soon," Hatch said. Hatch was able to handle a nearly 30-minute question and answer session with confidence and poise and displayed unreal determination for a 19-year-old who has been through so much.

I don't think the smile has left the face of Santa Monica Coach James Hecht ever since his players delivered a Southern Section 1A championship last season. And there's more smiling to come. Hecht has a guard duo that should be one of the best for underclassmen. Junior Nuwr'iyl Williams has picked up scholarship offers from Louisville, Oregon, Colorado and St. John's, among others. Sophomore Jonah Mathews, the brother of Cal guard Jordan Mathews, showed in the summer he has big-time scoring skills.
