“I got to coach her one last time. It was fun.”
Jennings enjoyed playing for her Logansport coach.
“It was neat to be able to play for him again. He did a good job,” she said.
She added Hoover, like usual, shared some good stories at the event.
“I think the girls got a kick out of him. It’s always story time,” she said.
Next up in basketball for the Iowa-bound Jennings is the Hoosiers’ Reunion All-Star Classic on June 6, which will be played on the movie home court of the “Hickory Huskers” in Knightstown. The Indiana All-Stars will then convene for practice on June 7.
Pistons dumping Dumars as team president
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Joe Dumars tried to push the Detroit Pistons back toward the playoffs with a couple of big moves last offseason.
That didn’t work, and now the Pistons will be hiring someone else to replace him.
Detroit has decided not to renew Dumars’ contract as president of basketball operations, a person familiar with the situation said Sunday. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made any announcement on Dumars’ future, says Dumars will remain with the Pistons as an adviser.
Dumars was named the 2003 executive of the year, and the Pistons won the title the following season, adding the 2004 crown to the two they won when Dumars was a player.
But Detroit hasn’t made the playoffs since 2009, and the retooled Pistons flopped badly this season.
