The Sacramento River Cats host their season home opener tonight at Raley Field, looking to get back on track to their championship ways this season under coach Tony DeFrancesco.
Sacramento Kings rookie guard Tyreke Evans joined Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James as the only players in NBA history to average 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game in their rookie seasons. Evans entered last night’s contest against the Houston Rockets needing 24 points and accomplished the feat with two made free throws with 6:46 left in the fourth quarter.
In honor of one of the NBA’s all-time greats, the Sacramento Kings continue to honor the legacy of Oscar Robertson, both on and off the court, by awarding the 2009-10 Oscar Robertson Triple-Double Award to Beno Udrih.
Every season, the Oscar Robertson Triple-Double Award winner is selected by a panel of local sports media and presented to the deserving Kings player who exemplifies certain characteristics both on and off the court. The triple signifies on the court accomplishments: He is a team leader, embodies the spirit of sportsmanship and plays an outstanding all-around game. The double signifies off the court leadership by showing commitment to community service and family.
