Bernard Edwards, Jr. has been released from his national letter of intent to attend Bowling Green State University, a spokesman in the BGSU athletics communication office said today.
Currently a senior at Lehigh High School in Lehigh Acres, Fla., Edwards signed his letter of intent last November with former head coach Louis Orr.
A 6-foot-0 guard, Edwards has reopened his recruiting search.
Edwards averaged 21.9 points and 5.2 assists per game this season and 18.1 points and 4.1 assists per game for his 103-game high school career. He was a third-team Class 6A selection this season.
Chris Jans, BG’s new head coach, now has three scholarships available for the upcoming season.

According to a published report in the Terre Haute Tribune Star, David Ragland has agreed to be an assistant men’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University with new head coach Chris Jans.
Ragland has been an assistant coach for the last four years at Indiana State.
“Chris Jans is someone everyone on our staff knows pretty well,” Ragland told the Tribune Star. “I’ve known him for about 10 years. It’s someone we trust and respect. He’s like us. He’s a hard worker. My knowing him is how it came about.”
Ragland’s wife, Annie, has family near Bowling Green.
“My wife will be moving closer to her family, and it’s a place where I’ve had success recruiting in Ohio. The way their program is moving and how progressive they want to be, it kind of makes sense,” Ragland told the Tribune Star.
 
Flashes from Gordon: BGSU should host district hockey games (04-09-14) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while catching up after a busy March:

SITE CHANGE: It's time for the Ohio High School Athletic Association to move the semifinals and finals of the district high school hockey playoffs from Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter to the BGSU Ice Arena.
Tam-O-Shanter is an excellent facility that serves high school hockey well, and it can still host the first two rounds of the district playoffs.
But the Ice Arena is a nicer venue and better suited to host the larger crowds in the district semifinals and finals.
Hockey has out-grown Tam-O-Shanter, which has a capacity of approximately 1,800. But with a capacity of 5,000 the Ice Arena has plenty of room to accommodate every fan who wants to attend.
BGSU athletics department officials have contacted the OHSAA about the possibility of hosting district hockey games.

FINDLAY - Bill Frack's generosity is putting Bowling Green State University's men's basketball program in an even better position to succeed.
The value of his gift to the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation, benefiting the Falcon men's basketball program and community needs in Hancock County, has nearly doubled to about $20 million since it was first announced in 2011.
Three-quarters of the annual distributions from the series of existing trusts go to the men's basketball program with the remaining proceeds supporting community needs in Hancock County, foundation president Katherine Kreuchauf said.
The increased endowment was announced Wednesday morning during a press conference at The Heritage.
"It's a game-changer for us in the sense the monies are to be used above and beyond our normal operating budget," BG athletics director Chris Kingston said. "We're going to be able to do things that we haven't been able to do or that others don't do ... things above and beyond that can make a difference in the quality of players and staff we can attract to this program."

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Bill Robertson, the vice president of communications and broadcasting for the NHL’s Minnesota Wild from 1999-2011 was named the commissioner of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, the league announced Tuesday.
Robertson takes over for Bruce McLeod, who is retiring at the end of the season.
Robertson, who is 53, will start in mid-May as McLeod assists with the transition.  McLeod’s last day is June 30 after 20 years in the position.
Robertson did not take any questions during the video streaming of the press conference. He did interviews after the press conference, but there was no conference call for those who couldn’t be in St. Paul.
“(Robertson) is a great leader who is well respected in the sports world,” Wild owner Craig Leopold said during a press conference at the Xcel Energy Center where the Wild play.
Robertson, who is from St. Paul, said he’d work to promote the WCHA and seek new revenue streams for the league.
