Wilks on the point

I know I speak for Rice fans everywhere when I say that the best thing about the recent trade that sent Moochie Norris to the Knicks is that it installs Mike Wilks as the Rockets' backup point guard. This is not a knock on Moochie, who earned his rep as a fan favorite and did a decent job behind Steve Francis. It's just exciting to see the first Owl hoopster since Ricky Pierce get some real playing time in the NBA. Wilks did some good things in a brief stint with the Hawks last year, and now he's got a chance to do them here in front of at least some of the fans that he wowed for four years at Autry Court. We're rooting for you, Mike!
