I would like to see Derek's little bro have a good career at his Dad's alma mater.

Doesn't look "little" in that picture.

Best of luck to him and the Pilots this season. Hopefully they catch a break this season and do okay...

I'd be happy if the WCC could play out like this:

1. Gonzaga
1a. Portland
3 - end. Everybody else.

But surely its going to be just a little weird the first time Portland and Gonzaga meet this coming season?

I think I'll probably do a double take the next time I hear, "Raivio, for three!" in K2 this coming season...

Nik is much taller and thicker that Derek... but there is still quite the resemblance in the face.

I cant wait to see Nik play... and I really hope I hear "Raivio For Three" a whole bunch of times in K2! ;)

We are going to be VERY young this season... but we are assembling some impressive talent in the Freshman and Sophmore classes... give us a year or two...!

He's what, 6'4" 190? That was a tiny picture with the article but you can tell, N-Rav is somewhat more intimidating-looking than his big bro.

He is listed at 6'4" 190; seems about right from when I have seen him...

As my grandpa used to say about the height/weight listings: "He might be that standing on his tippy-toes, soaking wet."
