USC's Jeff Trepagnier Will Join
ESPN Chat Tomorrow--(Oct. 15, 2000)
ESPN.com has a new feature called "College Chats", which is basically a moderated message forum, where you can ask college basketball players questions, and they'll be available to give answers. We suppose that this is going to be a regular thing with ESPN, and it also appears that USC's Jeff Trepagnier (6'-4" Jr. G) who is one of the most exciting and athletic dunkers in all of college hoops is going to be the first guest this season.
According to the blurbs at both ESPN.com and on the Official USC Basketball website, Trepagnier, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard is set to start for his third consecutive season, and "is a well-rounded swingman and one of the top athletes in the nation, as evidenced by his 40-inch vertical leap and high-jumping performance for the Trojan track team. Trepagnier, USC's second-leading returning scorer and third-leading returning rebounder, looks to continue the improvements that have made him one of the country's most versatile players in 2001. He enters 2001 third on USC's career chart in steals (178), fourth in blocked shots (84) and tied for 15th in three-pointers (53)."
Trepagnier will stop by the ESPN.com moderated chat room to chat with the fans on Monday at 1 p.m. ET (that's 11 a.m. for the rest of us on the West Coast).
There are some very impressive photos, and even a video clip of Trepagnier dunking over at BibbyBaby's USCHoops.com website, and some impressions of the Trojan version of "Midnight Madness" which was, from all we've heard, not as well attended as it might have been had the event been promoted a bit more and had the venue been larger (i.e., large enough to open it to the public). We weren't able to get over to the Lyon Center on Friday night, but we're willing to be that there were more people in attendance than were remaining at the Coliseum on Saturday in the last 7 minutes of theTrojan's football game against Oregon. . . .
