    Trakh back to USC

    I have a feeling that keeps Littleton with USC.

    Much deserved -- and he will do very well there.

    He seemed like a good guy. My daughter Chelsey was considering New Mexico at one time (until the asst. coaches abruptly left and went to UCI - I think?), Trakh was one of the first, if not the first D-1 coaches to offer her, along with LMU and Utah - of course. Seems like in the end, things ended up as they should. Clay, I also think he'll do well there. I WAS a little surprised that Destiny Littleton committed to Texas, after all - thought she might stick around the west coast?

    It's kinda of a shame every time a "local" girl goes out of state (to Texas). But I suppose there are other considerations for the prospective player.

    Trakh was fired after injuries devastated the program ... and I think it was Mike Garrett who decided Michael Cooper would be a better choice.

    He wasn't fired, he was offered a 1 year extension, but he knew he would not be able to do anything with all the injuries so decided to walk away.

    "Devastated" is a bit of an exaggeration. He still had 2-3 healthy McD's AA's as well as top 50 and top 100 players available while underachieving the last couple years. His final year was doomed by multiple shocking losses to non-conference cupcakes that were hard to forget even though they ended up with a winning record. Still, they ought to have given him time to rebuild, especially with the frontline reinforcements he had coming in: Monique Oliver, a forward who went on to a great career at Northwestern instead, Marinacci, and an early verbal from Cassie Harberts. He always could recruit! He beat out Boyle for a lot of his players, not just the All-Americans but others like Kari LaPlante 6'5" post from Arizona.

    I think the point was he had to do it within the 1 year extension and he felt it would take longer than 1 year to get back on track, hehe pardon the pun.
