THURSDAY SPORTS NEWS/Wise 2 back in Tour event; Pilots sign 6-9 Hogland; Ducks could lose Bigby-Williams; Brown goes from OSU to Georgia Tech


Seattle will kick off its 2017 NFL season at Green Bay on Sunday, Sept. 10

The Seahawks' home opener is Sept. 17 against San Francisco.

Seattle's third game will be on the road against Tennessee and Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota from the University of Oregon.

The Seahawks have two Sunday night games (Oct. 1 versus Indianapolis and Dec. 3 against Philadelphia), along with a Monday, Nov. 20 home game with Atlanta.

Key NFC West matchups include the two meetings with Arizona — Nov. 9 on the road and the Dec. 31 regular-season finale at CenturyLink Field.


Aaron Wise, the 20-year-old rookie pro from the University of Oregon, shot a 2-under-par 70 Thursday in the first round of the Tour event in Newburgh, Indiana.

Wise was tied for sixth, two strokes off the pace, in the 72-hole United Leasing & Finance Championship.

First-day leaders were Abraham Ancer, Kyle Thompson and Ryan Yip.

Wise, the 2016 NCAA champion, had four birdies and two bogeys at Victoria National Golf Club.

Wise is 16th on the money list for the Tour, which automatically promotes the top 25 finishers at the end of the year to the PGA Tour.


The Portland Pilots have signed 6-9, 235-pound Hugh Hogland to a letter-of-intent. A state player of the year in Hawaii, he will be a freshman next season for coach Terry Porter.

Hugland averaged 15.5 points, 10.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 3.1 blocks per game last season, shooting 66 percent from the field for Iolani School in Waimanalo. He helped Iolani win two state championships and played in various USA Volleyball youth and junior national team programs.

• The Oregon Ducks could be losing another key member of their 2016-17 NCAA Final Four team.

Forward Kavell Bigby-Williams is looking to transfer. The Ducks have granted his request to go elsewhere, if he chooses. He and coach Dana Altman will meet Monday, the university said.

Oregon already has lost stars Dillon Brooks, Tyler Dorsey and Jordan Bell to the pro ranks — as all plan to enter the NBA draft — as well as Casey Benson, who plans to play elsewhere as a transfer.


Oregon State is losing post Breanna Brown early because she is graduating — and because she will transfer and play next season for Georgia Tech.
