Gary Parrish's article (http://www.sportsline.com/collegebasketball/story/10268506) on Pump n' Run (Austin Daye's old AAU team) that features Jrue Holiday, the Wear brothers, Reeves Nelson (man, if we could get this kid), Larry Drew, etc. is now coached by who else, ex-EWU coach Mike Burns. If I remember correctly, he was an assistant to Ray G and they are still very close. We have got to use that to our advantage, 'cuz we know he's not going to be helping EWU:) . Reeves Nelson and the Wear brothers are only listing the typical big schools at this point, but man alive, that would be great.

Anyone have any idea what kind of $ an AAU Coach can get? Burns has had no ties in SoCal that seem obvious; would cost a bit to go (& stay) there.

Wasn't Coach Few and staff on good terms with Burns? If anything he would be a solid source of information for the coaching staff.

As I understand it, Leon Rice is Godfather to Mike's son.

Mike Burns and his wife are friends of the Few's and close to all the GU coaches.
