Rickert still holding own in pro leagues Part time Sandpoint resident Rick Rickert, left, looks to score against former Gonzaga player Robert Sacre in a recent quarterfinal of the All-Japan Tournament. Rickert, a 6-11, 220 pound former Big 10 Freshman of the Year at Minnesota, is the son-in-law of Sandpoint head tennis coach Kent Anderson, and spends part of his off-seasons in Sandpoint. Rickert, who was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second round of the 2003 draft but never made the team, posted 14 points, 13 boards and three blocks to help his team, the Ibaraki Robots, beat Hitachi, which featured the 7-0, 270 pound Sacre, who played for the Lakers, and 6-10, 275 pound Josh Harrelson, a former Kentucky player who played for the Heat and Knicks.
