Wednesday Morning Dump

- Illinois forward Mike Davis broke his ankle during a voluntary workout. He will miss 6-8 weeks, and is going to be forced to withdraw from the World University Games.

- The latest to leave USC - top 100 recruit Lamont "Momo" Jones. I hope he ends up somewhere good, because Momo is an awesome nickname.

- Former Oklahoma forward Juan Pattillo is headed Western Kentucky.

- Have the Knicks and the Blazers agreed on a trade for draft night?

- Auburn has hired South Carolina assistant coach Ken Potosnak.

- Greg Vetrone has been named the interim coach at FDU.

- BYU head coach Dave Rose underwent emergency surgery on his spleen over the weekend.

- Funny, if not a bit disturbing. Birds with ... arms?

- Humans aren't supposed to be able to do these things.

- One of the most incredible videos I have ever seen. His name is Anthony Van Loo, and he is a soccer player in the Belgian League. Apparently, he has a heart condition, and the only way he was allowed to return to the pitch was by getting a defibrillator implanted in his chest.

Well, it is a good thing it works. In this video, Van Loo collapses from a heart attack. After about 10 seconds, you see his legs kick as the machine sends a charge through his body. 10 seconds later, he sits up. Whoever made that machine should use this as an advertisement.
