A two-time All-American, Asgari, 30, was named interim coach last season when Dan Lewis left for the Colorado School of Mines.

Who doesn't love watching backboards get smashed? Trevor Wages, a junior center from the Colorado School of Mines, clearly enjoys the act. On Friday night, Wages slammed the ball and shattered the backboard during the first half of a game at Metro State. He was greeted by a mixture of cheers from astonished fans and boos from the home crowd. Unfortunately, the school wasn't prepared for Wages' demonstration of power, and the game between the two schools has been postponed until Sunday.
