Orlando Johnson named to preseason all-mid-major team

Orlando Johnson was named to the College Basketball Preseason All-Mid-Major Team for 2010 - 2011.

G Orlando Johnson, UC Santa Barbara
Particulars: 6-5/205, Jr.; Salinas (Calif.) Palma
Conference: Big West
The buzz: Johnson was the Big West player of the year last season, his first with the Gauchos after transferring from Loyola Marymount. Johnson has 3-point range -- he hit 39.7 percent of his shots from beyond the arc -- but he gets most of his points with his mid-range game and in the lane. He uses his size well against smaller defenders and also is an effective defender and rebounder.

Colorado transfer Keegan Hornbuckle

According to Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports, former Colorado University freshman Keegan Hornbuckle has decided to transfer to UCSB. It has not been publicly confirmed by Gaucho head coach Bob Williams yet, but if true, the freshman forward will have three years of eligibility left after redshirting next season.

In fact, the reference to Hornbuckle has two errors: his first name is Keegan (not Keenan), and he is listed as 6'7" by the Colorado Buffaloes athletics website (not 6'0").

Confirmation from the coaching staff of Hornbuckle's transfer is pending.
