As he accepted the head coach position for the NBA Development League's Los Angeles D-Fenders, Reggie Theus said he now has a chance to return to his roots. "My mom is 89 years old. I have a son that's a senior at Fairfax High School, and a daughter that's a freshman at Redondo Union, and one that just graduated from UC Irvine," the Los Angeles native said. "So for me to be home with family is very important at this point in my career. With various head-coaching and assistant stints in the NBA, college basketball and the AAU under his belt, Theus comes home after spending the past year as a Pac-12 analyst for Fox Sports Net. "The opportunity to work for the D-Fenders in an area of basketball that's about developing is really exciting.

The best first-round game of the Big West tournament on Thursday got the least notice because it ended at 10:56 p.m. Pacific time in front of a sparse crowd at the Honda Center. Cal State Northridge's 87-84 overtime win over Hawaii, however, deserved more than a tack-on blurb at the end of a long day. Northridge, under first-year coach Reggie Theus, blew a 16-point first-half lead but rallied back from 13 points in the second half. The fifth-seeded Matadors tied the score at 74 on senior Josh Greene's three-pointer with 12 seconds left in the second half.

There are five new Division I basketball coaches in Southern California this year, and of them three are well-known names. Coming to UCLA to try to live up to John Wooden standards is Steve Alford, who once played high school basketball in the same gym where Wooden played prep ball in Indiana. Coming to USC is Andy Enfield, who was teased about his former model wife Wednesday at the Los Angeles Athletic Club Wooden Award Tipoff luncheon. But possibly the most well-known newcomer is former Nevada Las Vegas and NBA star Reggie Theus, who pointed out he had scored more than 19,000 points in the NBA but was willing to take over the woebegone Cal State Northridge program that was 14-17 and 5-13 in the Big West last season under longtime coach Bobby Braswell.

It's a return to college coaching for Reggie Theus, who was introduced on Friday as the new basketball coach at Cal State Northridge. He once had a high trajectory in the coaching ranks, guiding New Mexico State to the NCAA tournament in 2006-07 in his second season as head coach after serving as an assistant to Rick Pitino at Louisville. Then he decided to take the NBA coaching plunge, becoming coach of the Sacramento Kings for two seasons. He was an assistant with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2009 to 2011 and then coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA D-League.

Stephen Jackson, the volatile yet sometimes highly productive swingman, has been waived by the San Antonio Spurs, who apparently would rather go to the playoffs without him than listen to him complain about his minutes and role with the team. San Antonio published a news release on their website Friday that the 13-year veteran had been put on waivers after appearing in 55 games this season, averaging 6.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.5 minutes per game. “We're getting ready for the playoffs and putting our team together,” Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich said.

The New York tabloids have resurrected a catchy phrase to describe the suddenly slumping New York Knicks, a nickname previously reserved primarily for the New York Yankees: "Team Turmoil." It is a nickname that seems to fit. After the Knicks' 10-point loss to the New Jersey Nets Friday night, Coach Rick Pitino strongly criticized his players and promised changes. The Knicks, who still lead the Atlantic Division by 6 1/2 games over the second-place Philadelphia 76ers, lost eight of 13 games and were entangled in a net of inner-conflicts.
