TEN YEARS AGO — LSU sophomore forward Stromile Swift, who averaged 16.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3 blocks a game last season, is taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft by the Vancouver Grizzlies.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Gill Morris, who led the ACCS Rebels to three state championship series and a 92-47 record in five season, is stepping down for good and will be replaced as head baseball coach by Ron Rushing.
