JAMES HERRICK — Sacramento State University, 2014 Douglas High School graduate: The 6-foot-10 sophomore had two points, four rebounds and one blocked shot in 12 minutes of action Jan. 9 in Sacramento State’s 77-58 loss against Big Sky Conference-leading Montana in Missoula, Mont. The Big Sky Tournament is set to be held on March 8-12 in Reno.
